    Yep..............been waiting for my X-Box High Def Component lead for as long, hadn't given it much thought though thinking it's a slightly bigger package that say a disc.

    Just ordered a load of disc's from 'DVDSoon' (How good are there prices) lets hope there delivery is a bit quicker.

    Stuff is taking a while lately but it does turn up eventually. I order SACD and DVD-A's off them and it can take a month or more. I don't really mind as the prices re great. Bit annoying for games though as you want to get in and play it ASAP. I'm waiting for a DVD-Audio off them now.

    i have stopped using them (dvd box office) because of the trouble they/royal mail/customs. has caused me . i hope you have better luck . the trouble with the parcels (dvd,games,etc) is that its so plane to see whats in them (shape,size,weight) all you need is some light fingered git helping him/her self as they have no tracking number/insured item you don`t know when/where the game/dvd goes missing it could be in this country or canada . if i order something thats a different shape/size , like a "wavebird" it come in a matter of days . makes me wonder ??? mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm .

    Ordered xbox hi-def kit and GC Animal Crossing from dvdboxoffice.com: received them both in less than 7 working days.

    No customs charges etc.

    From Canada that's excellent. No complaints from me.

    regards,

    My Mario Kart was shipped on the 19/11 and still not arrived, but my GCN version of Prince of Persia was shipped and the 25/11 and I got it yesterday.

    First time i've had to wait longer than a week for stuff to arrive from them.

    Hopefully MK:DD arrived this morning.

    I am missing a links ordered on the 13th and 3 games posted on the 20th so I am starting to think looking at all the dates here that there is either a very happy postman thief or the packages are all held up somewhere in one big batch.

    I have been losing a much higher percentage than usual from dvd boxoffice But that is not there fault there service has been outstanding for me 250 games and dvds in two years and only lost about 20 normally the big stuff that will not go through the letter box is the stuff that goes walkies.

    Maybe so, but how come my Prince of Persia and Alien Quadrilogy have both arrived, which were posted almost a week after Mario Kart?

    I got no idea, I am still awaiting my Mariokart and am just dreaming up reasons for it's missing. I don't want to believe someone has stolen another one of my Gmaes/DVDs (had two stolen from play :( )

    Ordered my stuff beginning of November: came within 7 working days.

    Never used them before so was quite impressed: quicker than dvdsoon (although I've never really had a problem with their delivery time -- ordered something on a friday once and it arrived on Tuesday).

    regards,

    Dream!

    Mine arrived today too!

    I notice on the packaging it came through France, usually it comes through Belgium, perhaps DVDBoxoffice have changed their shipping partners or routes, accounting for the sudden increase in delays lately??!?!?!?
