    My own experience would suggest to steer clear of HMV on the net. Apparently with order volume prior to Xmas, they are way behind and their system seems up the creek.
    I ordered a DVD "24" season2, which with a promotional code, sold for £24.99.
    I was given an order reference code, but no e-mail confirmation ever came. When I tried to check progress on the site, it failed to recognise my e-mail address - which is plainly impossible, as an order code cannot be generated until all the address/e-mail details have been recorded.

    There is therefore no way of cancelling the order nor will I know for weeks, whether they may possibly process it. They sell the same DVD in their shops albeit without the promotional discount of £3 - I think saving all this hassle is actually worth £3!! Oh well - better stick to Amazon next time.

    Looks like I am eating humblepie - following yesterdays posting. I sent an e-mail querying what had happened to my order (not expecting a response for ages) - but lo and behold, a reply arrived today, saying that my order had been dispatched and it was all down to my quoting a slightly incorrect e-mail address! Mea culpa!

    My faith in the internet and HMV has been fully restored (well it will be, once the order arrives) - and I take it all back. Just goes to show, that some of these large organisations do respond promptly to e-mails.

    Yup, on the 1st post already, but is it definately in the tin case as it doesn't say. Just the picture looks the same. Has anyone bought this at this price?

    ...postman just delivered it.

    Very unusual METAL amaray case (plastic see through amaray, with metal wrapped around to make an opening shell) and an 18 page booklet.
    Black and red printing on a silver metal base, very striking effect,

    Just to confirm that my Company of Wolves also arrived in the metal tin case - very nice indeed (sorry for not checking the first post properly!).

    I also ordered 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (New SE - includes book)' but mine didn't come with a book?! Is it worth complaining I wonder?

    ...I only needed to buy the Slade CD... and as it was the same price everywhere, I chose HMV and used that £9.99 to up the basket and get me up to the £30 (or £35!) line to use the discount voucher.
    (and only last night my wife told mt to STOP buying dvd's like they are going out of fashion!)
