    Has anyone used www.directdiscs.co.uk before? They have Kill Bill 1 for £9.99 and KB2 for £12.99.

    Also have Schindler's List for £8.99!!

    Not sure if it's legit though :confused:

    Looks Ok to me, it appears to be another Jersey based outfit. Can't see any telltale signs like R0, DVD9 etc.

    Plus their prices are not that cheap to make you think they are dodgy.
    They do have some great prices, but also some no so great prices. Box sets in particular are not great value.

    It was the fact that it looks like an exact clone of the Play website (structurally) and they are also Jersey-based. Maybe i'll give it a miss for the sake of a fiver...

    I think you will find lots of DVD retailers have similar site structures to play. I would give them a try.

    not impressed so far, orderd Schindler's List on sunday, wanted to send to another address other than my billing address- didnt get offered this, tried to cancel or change delivery addy, cant do it online- fair enuff will phone.

    tried phoning monday,tuesday,wednesday no one has yet picked up and I always get 1571- not only can i not change order but it has still not shipped- which i suppose is good cos i still av chance 2 change- but they state that they dvds shud go outin 24-48 hours, which it hasnt.

    will try again tomorrow and hopefully this company can restore some of the high prospects I had for it
    :rolleyes:

    Ordered Matrix Revolutions and got it very quickly. Finished off my trilogy collection. £8.99 delivered is very good.

    Will check this site again.

    Takes too long to plough through their listings though....

    I was thinking that same thing. It would be nice to have an easier way rather than trowelling through dozens of pages to find a bargain.

    I had been impressed with this company; I have bought about 12 DVDs from them all delivered very quickly.
    On 13th Jan though, I ordered a DVD for my son's birthday and it still hasn't arrived. My chasing emails have gone unanswered and the telephone number is no longer in existence. My credit card was debited on the day of order even though they say on their site that they won't do that till the order is shipped. :mad: Doesn't look good :thumbsdow

    Personally I would advise anyone not to use them until at least the telephone number is working again (0845 6008174). Check before you order, assuming you're still interested.

    Definitely worth a call to your credit card company and get it refunded.
