Thanks for the tip. I had promised myself I wouldn't buy an more HD DVDs but I picked up Red Dragon on the pretense that it probably won't come to BD any time soon. I almost bought 'the Mummy Returns' but with it's already-announced BD release and the prospect of a box set (maybe lossless audio, too) I couldn't pull the trigger.Sniper General / KillerHobbit

hm, on average, this deal is only slight better (20 cents per disc approx) than Deepdiscount. Other than those imports not available domestically in the states (Total Recall, Leaving Las Vegas), the deal isn't so hot. Of course, it depends on the price of what you buy plus how much of it you buy that determines your savings.

I'm confused about their shipping. Do they charge Per disc, or Per shipment?
From what I read out of it, one disc will cost 5.50AU, and 2 would cost 9.50AU. But that can't be right can it?!?

Be careful with their shipping and Customer service! If you buy 1 hd it $4.50 shipping , 2 hd's it's $9 but if you go to 3 it's jumps to $18!!!! then another $4.50 for everyone after... So if your going to buy anything Buy 1 or 2 hd's, OH and I THOUGH I WOULD DO TWO SEPERATE ORDERS, BUY 2 then another order to but 1, GUESS WHAT?? They just combined the two orders and charged the $18 shipping anyways!!! 8 e-mails latter and still no reply?? believe me I know about them, I bought a few things , got them but there Customer service via e-mail is NON-EXSISTANT if you have any problems.... But that's why you have a credit card to handle that... You should be FINe if you order 1-2 hd's with the cheapo pricing and shipping at 4.50 each that;'s about $10 a disc or less w/ the exchaneg rate... $$$ is a bit stronger then the Aus Dollar...
Hope that helps...

Shipping is a deal breaker for me. $25 for shipping is a bit over the top. $10, maybe $15, but $25 for 5 items?

Yeah their customer service is a nightmare. It took me 11 calls to Australia (wowo watch those savings disappear from overseas phone calls) to try and getthem to ship an order. After 2 months I just canceled it, placed the EXACT same order (for $50 cheaper even) and it shipped the next day.. Go figure.
Their shipping rates are atrocious (yes that is $5AUS PER DISC) but in some cases can still be a deal. They did seem to cap out at $25 and when I ordered the BSG set it had a "special $10 shipping charge" that they didn't seem to charge me. Their prices are dirt cheap however and since only the Australian Dollar and the Lira seem to have any value against the US dollar that helps (a little). It sucks that they won't tell you shipping BEFORE you place the order but as slow as they move just canceling it right after you place it may be the solution to that.

Misel is right. There are good bargains to be had there, but you need to order 2 for the full benefit. Ordering 1 is about the same as what you would pay locally on here from another member. If you order 2, then you are probably going to get value in it.
My order from them came on Monday the 21st. I initially ordered on the 9th, shipping email came on the 15th. Not too bad after the email from there to PA.
As far as price wise...
I purchased The Game and Into The Wild and total was $23 + change
This was big time value for Into The Wild alone. I feel in the end I received Into The Wild on sale + a free The Game when comparing to buying in B&M stores here.
Real satisfied with my initial order from them.Toshiba HD-A2

Just buy one or two items... Sucks They dont have anymore decent exclusive only import HDs...
Last sale I bought Into the Wild for Cheap I think with Shipping it was 13 bucks.
This sale I picked up Leaving Las Vegas for around 12-13....
I was very very tempted to buy Knocked up because I own the combo but decided to just settle for what I got or wait for the Blu-ray.

I always do roughly 2 disc's per order, Also unlike the other member I have had up to 3 orders and asked them to combine yet they still ended up shipped separate, so I guess it's a case by case issue, also there shipping has been perfect to less than, ie. 3orders 2 shipped fast 1 was held for almost 2 weeks, btw shipping was always fast though and never got hit with duty.
