    I've been using http://www.play247.com for a while now, they are OK for R2 but R1 costs more.

    How much do you usually pay for R1? and where from?

    Cheers

    Beware Amazon. I've read posts on this or another forum that indicate that they are no longer using a distribution hub in Amsterdam, instead going to Zurich or somewhere else. The point being the new hubs are outside the EEC. This means that, if the total value of your package inc shipping etc., is >£18, you're liable for VAT and duty plus a collection fee levied by the carrier (Totals about 23% of the package value). This makes Amazon prices high. Although I've never used them, I read many good comments about Movietyme (no VAT or duty - guaranteed - they say).

    Me, I use Play247 most of the time.

    Check out www.absound.ca - the Canadian based R1 supplier. Prices generally among the lowest available anywhere and delivery in usually around 1 week (they should be paying me commission for the amount of times I recommend them !!)

    Nice to see some bargains to be had on the High Street now. Virgin 2 for £25; MVC 2 for £22 (though not many great titles I don't think); Various places doing Buy 1 get 1 half price.

    I was going to get Perfect Storm in Virgin yesterday, but didn't fancy anything else in the offer so didn't bother getting anything!

    I use the following:

    Play247
    Future Entertainment
    Disc Emporium
    Movietyme

    £17.99 for a Region 1 movie is very good. you can use Amazon or alike and you will get them for about 12-15 quid each. However they will take weeks to arrive and to save of shipping costs you will need to buy more than 4 titles at a time!

    I like to buy my region 1's over the counter where possible.

    You do pay a little more, usually £5+, but the pleasure of seeing what you are paying for and buying there and then without the waiting easily compensates for this. Makes impulse buying more fun too..

    Most major cities have at least one or two home cinema shops that will have this 'facility'. I'm not going to name any names...

    Computer fairs are a good place to pick up obscure goodies, VCD's etc.

    I am currently out in Switzerland and buy them over the counter here. They are all R1 Just out. Now I have ordered direct before and no matter what the disc is, it is always here before my order comes in. Also why do they have DTS R2 copies when we get R2 DD versions? When I get back into the country I will go back to Movietyme.com for my orders.

    for those who like to "get stuff early", I just picked up "Small Time Crooks", "Hollow Man" and "Way of the Gun". All over the counter. (15/12)

    Not bad, even though I don't normally care about "getting stuff first", I know a lot of you do...

    On a similar note, I have now waited 15 weeks for a copy of "Fight Club" to be delivered. Is this a record?
