    Just placed an order with them for the R1 Nightmare on elm street box set, which is "on Order" from them, just wondered roughly how quickly they got items back on stock, anyone know?

    Or has anyone had this item on order for ages?

    I've had items that got despatched within a few days after ordering. I've currently got Jonny Mnemonic super bit on back order and has been so for 2 months.

    So I've probably hit both ends of the back order roller coaster

    Did you order Nightmare on Elm Street after I said how much it cost or was you going to order it anyway?
    I might order Beverly hills cops as well.

    It would be more helpful if DVD Soon gave an indication of stock levels, and back order times. Having said that, I've been waiting longer for stuff from Play than I ever have from Soon orders.

    I have been waiting a couple of months for certain items from DVDSoon. It is mainly the older stuff you have to wait for, but because of their low prices I dont really mind.

    I am tempted to buy Nightmare on Elm street and Beverly Hills Cops as that would also mean I get free shipping.
    I am not working at the moment so dont know if i should buy it though there is a good chance I will have a job next week.
    I think the boxsets will still be the same price in a months time dont you think?

    Thank I think i will wait and be sure i have a job fist. I have to pay Credit card £530 still very tempted to buy the boxsets still damn credit cards :rotfl:.
    Beverly hills cops is only £20 Nightmare Elm Street £38 so that is £58 for 10 films very tempting.

    Seems fairly clear to me. They're updating the site, and it's gone tits up! Doesn't seem to me to be anything sinister at the moment. However, if they're not up and running in a few days, I might start worrying. :(
