    I use playusa.com. They aren't cheap, but they are reliable.

    I've not used them for ages but the DiscEmporium were very good... unfortunately they too aren't cheap.
    However, as I get older I far more incliend to pay a bit extra for a fast and friendly service.

    amazon.co.uk marketplace sellers (new and used)
    As I get older, I try and save as much money as I can.
    just type in NTSC after the disk title you are looking for, great prices too.
    playusa.com are a bit too pricey for me (most of the time)

    PlayUSA are ok for anything under £18 but dont try ordering anything over that amount unless you are happy to pay any customs charges.

    Personally I use either CDWow, Axel Music, Movietyme or Loaded247 for my R1 orders as they have good prices and are all customs friendly.

    I would say CD wow but it is also worthwhile checking out axel music, I've just pre-ordered Star Wars Episode Three ROTS for the handsome price of £9.99... Which is not be sniffed at!!!!

    DVDImport.com (Canada) and DVD Pacific (USA) have low prices
    - the former could take a while to fill your order and deliver, and will take payment immediately (i.e. before shipping) in CA$
    - the latter is transparant regarding item availability, and also charges shipping which may still keep your item(s) cheaper (remember the £18.00 customs limit on items value), and charges upon shipping in US$

    Have also recently used Playcentric.com, which is Canada-based and charges (upon shipping) in US$ - very competitive pricing.

    Playusa.com is usually quite expensive.

    CD-Wow may be cheaper on occasions (esp when using e-vouchers), but its R1 catalogue is limited.
