    I've found a really good deal at Filmsfirst.net through dvdpricecheck for Gattaca at £4.95.

    http://www.filmsfirst.net/erol.html#12139x0&&

    But, I've found their website to be a little shakey, I can't actually click on the DVD titles for more info, I keep getting a javascript error.

    Wanted reassurance from you guys before I went ahead and purchased.

    Feedback anyone? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks THX, I'm sorry to hear that dataloss.

    I did a search and I found one AVforum user who approved of their service, could I go so far to say you were an isolated case? Or has there been a history of below-par service?

    Also, can anybody confirm the problem I had browsing their site, I want to find out if its just my setup or not.

    Buying DVDs is never easy! :rolleyes:

    I used them a couple of weeks ago for the first time because they also had a bargain disc which was difficult to resist.

    Disc arrived within 5 days, so I'm happy:) :)

    USed them once. Fast service but the bargain discs (the two Bab 5 movies for £4.50 each) had been badly cleaned. I suspect they were second hand, although the site did not say that they were.

    I also had/am having problems with them - ordered a disc a month ago, they took the money and still no sign of it.

    No response to emails AT ALL.

    I will not be using them again.

    I posted a message to them, on The DVD Forums, in their official thread got a reply telling it would be sorted first thing monday morning... so lets see if it does.. TRambler and anyone else having problems go to the suppliers forum at http://www.thedvdforums.com and complain in the films first thread as if nothing else it makes them look bad if they still don't solve the problems...

    Perhaps it's a case of if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. :(
