What is the best importer service?

I am planning on purchasing a US XBOX360 with a couple games from gamestop, they are such a pain when it comes to shipping outside the US (plus they won't ship XBOX360 outside the US, neither to PO BOXES). I used to import from Barnes & Nobles but it seems now that most games comming out, can only be shipped to the US.

I saw two days ago on this forum, this importing service http://www.myus.com being listed, I wanted to know if the are reliable? Are they expensive? Are they fast on shipping?

Ummmm....this thread is for LCD TV's.

There is no General forum, plus you can use importing service to get yourself a US LCD TV, no?

This would be best suited to the fairly large Gaming forum on here, considering it's a 360 that you're after.....and not an LCD screen.

From past experience there's no way you can avoid duty and VAT on soemthing like a console...no-one's likely to mark it down for you...have suffered hits on an Xobox and a GC over the years.

Now, as I said there's a Gaming forum here which also has a general section within it.

Buy an Asia (NTSC) 220v premium pack from Play-Asia instead.
Regarded as the best import option.
Be aware if the console goes tits up MS will collect it, but, you will receive a PAL version in return.
You'll still prolly get hit for customs and vat as well.

Best thing to do is get an already-imported machine, I got a Japanese system with Ridge Racer 6 and a stepdown for £180, met the guy at Birmingham New Street station and gave him cash, the console was basically new, hardly touched!

Also got a US machine off here with four games for £380, as well as a UK power supply. Just luck of the draw. :)
