    As per the thread title really.

    Got my eye on The Beyond and Tenebrae on there and they're the cheapest I've seen @ £7.99 each.

    What are their dispatch/delivery times like?

    I've ordered from them a few times and never had a problem

    As for dispatch times all my orders with them have been pre-orders and arrived a few days after release.

    Cheers for the info, I'll give them a go. They can't be any worse than Zavvi (next cheapest for those two):laugh:

    I ordered for the first time on Sunday (King of New York steelbook). I did have an order confirmation email but nothing to confirm dispatch (do they even do this?). The order details in my account don't give much information in terms of progress so it might already be on the way to me or it might not!

    Doesn't bother me much as I'm sure all will be well. Once this first order is done I'll have a point of reference for what to expect in future. They must be operating on a relatively small scale with a less well developed system so allowances need to be made. Will post back when my item arrives.

    As far as I can remember that's what happened with my orders, no email, no notification they just arrived.

    I've ordered direct from them 3 or 4 times and this is exactly what happened with me. It was a little worrying the first time, getting no emails etc., but my orders all turned up safely and pretty quickly too.

    My order arrived today. Ordered Sunday so pretty swift considering we had a bank holiday. Came in quite a sturdy jiffy bag.

    I ordered Deep Red late on tuesday night and it arrived this morning, doubly impressed!

    A lot of retailers could learn a thing or two from Arrow.
