You win some, you lose some.
Luck of the draw I'm afraid!
For US NTSC stuff, I can wholy recommend www.videogameplus.ca
I got a US PSTwo with GT4 from them. It was in my hands 4 days after ordering, and I have zero customs charges. They mark all packages down to $20 CAD as toys, although they insure the item for the full amount. The service I had from them was second to none.
DHL always hit you for VAT/Import Duties on anything over £20, the thing is you think you've got away with it, then DHL send an invoice 3-4 weeks later.
I looked at that website and was tempted, but it looks so unprofessional, I gave it a miss. Too much cause for concern with e-tailers these days i'm afraid!
I agree, the background for the title is one i pulled of google images for my christmas wallpaper. That's my main concern.
lol, I thought exactly the same. However, if you head over to www.ntsc-uk.com or www.rllmukforum.com you will see that hundreds of folk use this great company and have nothing but first class service from them.
Seriously, I can't recommend this place enough, and I have no vested interest in them at all.
Video Games Plus are long established and have a superb reputation, I have used them on a number of occasions and their pre/after sales is good. Tronix are currently my source for most of my US stuff though due to the highly favourable US dollar rate, and of course their customer service is unsurpassed.
