    They are fantastic! Postage is DHL courier, with you in a couple of days. I've had 2 off them and not paid duty etc on either of them. Can't fault em!

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    Oh dear... you'll probably pay customs charges now then. Were they really that much cheaper than videogamesplus? Their price does include DHL shipping... anyway hope it works out for you

    Cheers

    Order from videogamesplus. It may cost you a couple of pounds more but trust me when I say it's worth it.
    They even check for dead pixels.

    I ordered one for my son off Amazon on Monday (£95 + Mario £25) and it arrived today, but my son's devastated. It's got a dead pixel on the bottom screen. He's adamant that he'll never get used to it being there, so I'll be sending it back for a replacement.

    And he was soooo happy with it at first.
