    the site looks exactly the same as the www.loaded247.co.uk site but the addresses/phone no.s at the bottom are not the same.

    having looked at the loaded website, it offers the same item that i wanted - what are they like?

    cheers to all that have replied so far.

    There seem to be quite a few retailers popping up with Jersey PO Box addresses. Powerplay Direct are another, who offer good prices for CDs too, but I know for a fact their shop is in Eastbourne, as I have visited it often! Loaded (aka Future Ent) are based in Kent, so I don't really think that having a Jersey PO Box address means that the actual company is based there. Perhaps someone can enlighten us? Who knows, perhaps even Play aren't actually in Jersey?! :eek:

    checked out the www.powerplaydirect.co.uk site. some of the prices on there are pretty good - especially on albums that don't sell shedloads.

    has anyone else ordered from this website?

    cheers

    Did a check on their domain names, none of the registration details seems to be related. The interesting one was loaded247.co.uk this domain name is hosted on the Futurent name servers, so this may have been Futurent.

    Loaded 24 7 was definitely FutureEnt. They made no secret of the rebranding. :cool:

    Having seen that they had TBA as the only T&C on their site, I posted the same query on DVDforums and got nothing. Glad to see I did not take the risk.
