    Meridius - I have used dvdimport a few times and they are a decent alternative to dvdsoon - I think you'll find they are Canada based & not USA as you stated - Shipment is free via Canada Post & takes about 5 days - as to import duties etc keep your order under £18 (or the equivalent in dollars) and Customs will not bother you (so if you want to order a load of films do them one at a time to keep under the £18 mark - most decent etailers do not charge for shipping (dvdimport / dvdsoon / play / cdwow) stick with them and you should be OK ... HTH Paul ;)

    Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't DVD soon charging for shipping from today?

    I have only used DVD import once for a pre-order , I can't remember how long it took to arrive but not too long... Probably less than a week. They seemed quite good but I haven't used them since.

    As I recall they were quite helpful because I couldn't log on to my account and as it turned out I had Spyware on my machine, which they helped diagnose through a series of e-mails recommending me to d/l ad-aware 6 :thumbsup:

    i use them all the time - 5 days to deliver, canadian films, very good prices (got friday 13th box set for less than £25 - a steal) films are around £12. Only downside with dvdimport is they take payment at time of order and not time of shipment so dont order too early. Alien v predator is £10 on there at present.

    They are okay - I've used them as an alternative to soon also.
    Not sure about their CS though.

    I've used DVD Import a number of times, and if DVD Soon are stopping their free shipping, they will probably be the cheapest R1 retailer. In my experience, they don't tend to ship new releases as quickly as DVD Soon, but all my orders have arrived well packed, and around 5 days from shipment date. One thing I would say is, the best way to contact them is through their on site mailing system, connected to each order, as that is the only way it seems possible to get an answer. That said, I have never had any problems with them.

    Just looked at the dvdsoon site & you are correct that their free shipping has stopped - IIRC they did this last January but when no one ordered anything from them the free shipping was reinstated rather rapidly ;)

    can i add something to this and ask if they normally ship pre-orders before release date? (giving a chance of getting it a bit closer to release)

    Not usually, in my experience. A couple of days if you're lucky, but the way I see it is, what's the hurry? Most of us have already got a pile of unwatched DVDs, so I tend not to worry too much about getting stuff early.
