    My last 3 orders from CD-Wow have all been taking at least a couple more days to arrive (after dispatch), they always used to take 3 days or less.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    Are they region 1 or region 3 by any chance ?
    Could be due to their new shipping routes that they are using to avoid customs charges. My last couple of region 1 orders have taken a bit longer, but my region 2 and CDs seem unaffected..........

    They were the following:

    Godfather Collection - Region 2 - £16.99 (this took over a week)

    THX 1138 - Director's Cut - Region 2 - £12.99 (5 days)

    One Missed Call - Region 3 - £6.31 (if it arrives today it will be 4 days)

    the only one that might have taken the custom avoiding route would be Godfather Collection as by the time they had it in-stock the price exceeded the customs limit!

    Yep, all the CD's ive ordered from them of late have arrived nearly a week AFTER the release date due to their excessively slow postage. Looking at preordering stuff elsewhere now. Any suggestions?

    My last few orders have actually been quicker than I expected, I got the R3 release of The Day After Tomorrow yesterday and it was posted on Tuesday so only took 3 days from Hong Kong but they dont seem to be so good on Region 2 releases, they hardly ever ship before the release date and lately all my Region 2 orders have shipped a good 3 or 4 days after the release date but shipping time wise I have found them to be about right, usually only taking one more day than titles ordered from Play.com

    I've had a few titles now taking a week to arrive, perhaps they're giving DVD Sooner or Later some competition in the delivery stakes???
