    Can you check if the sound track is 5.1 or 7.1? Some reviews say 7.1 but a copy that I saw in a shop here seemed to be only 5.1. Maybe only the US edition is 7.1, I have seen that before.

    Which is a good reason to avoid this like the plague. I've never seen Bangkok Dangerous, but judging by the reviews, it isn't even worth a blind buy, allegedly it's a pile of cack.

    i actually quite enjoyed it, and half a percent of bad feedback isn't really a reason to get worked up

    The disc is also 1080i/50 if that is any concern. I wouldn't be myself although 1080p/24 is still preferable. I watched Zack and Miri last night which is 1080i and the picture was fine. The player converted it to 1080p for me but kept the 50hz.

    I've have used this firm at least a half dozen times and have always received the item within 36 hours.
    I also enjoyed 'Bangkok Dangerous' after putting off buying it earlier on due to the negative reviews.
    At that price I would go for it anyway and make your own mind up.

    When there are dozens of people in the last months alone who complain that they never received their item after payment, and lots more who received 2nd hand good advertised as brand new - that should set massive alarm bells ringing to any sane person!
    It doesn't matter how many good transactions there are, the fact that he's cheating over 4 customers a day is terrible service

    Unless you had personally dealings with this company, I would refrain from calling them cheats!

    I've brought several items from this seller via both Amazon , Play and eBay and I've had no problems with this seller. Though they do shop from Guernsey so delivery is slower than standard UK rate which they should state in their auctions.

    With the eBay's feedback change with only buyers allowed to leave negative feedback, some of the negative/neutral are in excess - like the game is crap, didn't leave feedback first or unable to use channel advisor checkout, etc.

    So, 0.6% of their orders in the last 12 months were deemed problematic - Slightly more if you take into account the neutral feedback.

    With all online companies I've dealt with, I have received items that were sold as new but were not sealed, slow to delivery or marked discs. But generally this is a just a small handful compared to the normal good ones.

    Btw. Ordered and they also had Deception @ £5.99 as well

    BLU-RAY - DECEPTION. NEW & SEALED MOVIE. on eBay, also, DVDs, DVD, Film TV (end time 02-Jul-09 14:47:21 BST)

    Maybe it's worth, maybe it's not...

    Consider this, Your Play.com's, Hmv's, Amazon's etc etc. If they had a feedback system... would you?
    They must sell to thousands a day but some must get a raw deal. I know myself and some on this forum at various points in life have, but doesn't stop us.
    In defense, they are very unlikely to ever sell a pirated item but as for shoddy service, deliveries, items being unsealed/broken etc it happens to all of them.
