    Inetvideo.com has cut the price of some discs to $3.99. The link is:

    http://www.inetvideo.com/store/category.aspx?&Page=1&Sort=2&catid=16709

    Some of these are the usual suspects. Perhaps it's a sign of how far prices might drop here, too :)

    Whilst there's a claim that shipping costs to the USA and Canada have also been cut, I can't find any specific info on shipping costs. Does anybody have info on what is charged to the UK?

    For the 5 HD-DVD's I chose it was $19.95. After thinking about it I eventually did buy; $50.90 (£25) seemed just OK (initially I thought it a bit too much, maybe I was being greedy).

    btw also mentioned on this thread here which gives exact pricing for p&p which is not indicated well on site.

    Just can't see the point in buying from overseas now especially with the HD DVD's that are going for under a fiver here now.
    When you take into consideration delivery times, postage rates and possible custom charges, I don't think it's worth it for a couple of quid.

    Can see the sense in it for blu ray at the minute as they are still quite dear over here and even some of the more sought after HD DVD's

    You do realise that 70$ is less than £40 don't you? So that is still only £4.50 per disc.

    Insurance is optional and at the postage prices only 1 disc is expensive. If you order 2 or more it works out cheap:

    The titles are $3.99 each and after postage work out at £3.75-4.75 each. Postage works out as:

    $7.95 for the first item
    $3.00 for each additional item

    So 1 costs $10.95 postage, 2 costs $16.95 and so on. Therefore 1 isn't a bargain but 2-3 or more is, they also have titles for $5.99 (which work out at £5-6 delivered) and $7.99 too.

    There are members over at AVS Forum saying how good they are.


    As I could only find Notting Hill I wanted in their $3.99 sale I didn't bother.
