    when I order my video card in march it was delayed a day
    order a case fan delayed a day
    order video game delay but delivered later in day: fedex keeps delaying my video games, 3 times already

    ordered something from ecost, next day am(because I needed the package in the morning and I got it a week later...took them a month to issue refund for shipping

    and now I order software from newegg and ups picked it up from them and then lost it, newegg is investigating, issuing a refund, and I had to redo the order.

    WTF!!!! not a good year for me.. last year I had no problem with them.

    I wish there was a local store that sold the things that I needed and at good prices.

    FedEx is crap here two. Their next day air always turns into a "devivery exception" on the tracking and it become two days. Other couriers make it overnight just fine.

    Both UPS and FedEx are great where I live. Sucks to have stuff delayed though.

    it sucks to have stuff show up late or not at all. i can understand bad weather, but ups is horrible here. if i order something with a 2 day air shipping, it always turns out to be a 3 or 4 day delivery. no matter what im ordering. im not saying the company as a whole is bad, but around here they are and i refuse to use them.

    i have never had a problem with fedex. my deliveries are always on time and it rarely comes down to them being late.

    Canada Post, Fedex, Purolator and UPS are all great in my area.

    Never had a problem with them ever.

    NEVER had a issue with UPS that wasn't resolved quickly! The only thing I can think of that happened was I had paint delivered to the house and UPS put it on front porch with the box leaking. This isn't no regular paint either..it's Por15 so it ate through the box, and really stained the front porch so they paid for a gallon of paint to repaint it and the company that shipped it told me to keep what I had left and sent me two more quarts (expensive stuff and only 1 quart was leaking).

    I've always had things show up on time per the start of tracking. Now depending on where you live there may be issues with traffic, accidents and so on that is out of their control. I don't like FedEx too much cause they require signatures too much and I'm often times not home during the middle of the day like many normal people I WORK!!!

    Last but not least.. USPS has been AWESOME here lately with prices and shipping too and from me.

    I've only ever had one issue with UPS, and that was an extra days worth of delay, which carried something over the weekend, which was kind of irritating.

    Actually, quite the contrary, most of my experiences with them are quite good, either of them, with Newegg, if it ships from TN, it usually gets to me within two days instead of three.

    I've always preferred UPS over FedEx, but it really seems to depend on where you live more than anything. Where I am not it's actually the plain old USPS that gives me fits... lol

    Ups must have had a bad logistics bug last week. I ordered something on Tuesday evening with 2 day delivery. It left Colorado Wednesday morning and went to Kentucky and then to Utah and then to Idaho. I could not figure out WTF it would go to Kentucky from Colorado and then through Utah to come to Idaho. Very strange movements. I did however get the package on time.
