    Yesterday play had these up for 18 quid and today Choices had them up for 17. If you hang off a bit they may be even LESS at places like Amazon.

    The price drop does not happen till the 24th so loads of time for cd wow and the like to be the place of choice :)

    Btw mate if you were on BXB you would have seen that I posted about the choices price this morning :oops:

    Nothing against Choices Direct, but I've ordered mine from Play.com, you know what you're getting from a site and a company you trust. It's only £1 more per set, gotta be worth it for peace of mind.

    Personally speaking i found Choices to be much quicker than Play although the two of them are good.

    I have ordered a couple of Angel sets from Choices and they arrived in 2 days by Royal Mail in a very large box with the lattice type paper packing - IMHO way better than Play who just use padded envelopes and take 4 or 5 days.

    BTW - Does anyone know what packaging they are using? The previous fold out packaging is truly awful - I cannot believe that people pay £30 for something that looks like it was made by Blue Peter. My only hope is that it is some decent M-Lock cases like Firefly and Roswell.

    choices are excellent and alo bigger company than play.

    they have a presence on the highstreet, and are excellent for deliverys.

    for others that had ordered from Chaoices, have they taken your order and payment ??

    i ordered all 3 seasons but it still say In Progress and nothing has been taken off my card yet (not even apllied for it yet)

    do they charge you once the goods have left the warehouse ?

    Thanks :)

    I ordered mine from Play.com as I mentioned above. Seasons 1 and 2 arrived last Thursday and Season 3 came on Saturday - perfect condition, unlike a message I saw on another forum from someone who got it sent from Choices Direct.

    Now do you think it's possible to watch all three seasons before the 4th starts on Sky One?! Ha!Ha!!
