Actual prices are less than listed too, as an exporter, you don't pay the Australian tax !!! Sweet.

Yes, good prices but no stock until 28th March? By that time Amazon, Play etc maybe clearing stock too.

Original Poster

They might. Depends on weather they do a 'fire sale', or let the stock just deplete...

Original Poster

Oh yea, I forgot.. "HD-DVD is Dead !! Why post a betamax deal??" Thought I would get that out of the way to keep the activists happy

Please bear in mind that you've also got to pay a further $20 AUS in P&P and insurance but still, Heroes season 1 for around :thumbsup: £21 inclusive is pretty damn good

Original Poster

You're right. The $20 is only for the heroes/bsg box sets to cover the extra shipping costs. Still great price.

is that right, wont be delivered until 28th March ???????

At these prices they're worth it just to see the movie - rental prices!

Less than £18 (shipping/insurance doesn't matter)

sorry meant £18 so its the same then?

Awaiting confirmation email for registering at mo, hopefully ill have it tomorrow morning when come in work, otherwise ill miss out

Original Poster

Yep!
I think the limit for a 'gift' is £30 tho, you may be able to get a higher value order through if its gift wrapped. Can anyone confirm this ?

thats ok just ordered 4 for less than £12

great prices... I'm bagging Battlestar Galactica Series 1 and The Game right now! £15! Whoop!

I didnt need to wait for confirmation

And just to say... despite having ordered one of the boxsets, I wasn't charged extra for shipping either!! WOOHOO!

I states you will be charged for shipping wen your item is sent as depending on how many items your cost can change all under shipping on the left of home page

this is on the bottom of my order

Send order once all items are available.
Delivery costs will be added where applicable.

Sweet. That makes it really worthwhile. :thumbsup:
These disks are PAL too, don't know if that makes any difference in the world of HD-DVD.

Is any one else slightly dubious that these discs are all for pre-order for march 28th??
Hot Deal by the way...

Original Poster

Looks like they will charge extra for multiple packages, unlike amazon. I have ordered from them a fair few times, and they have always sent the order in 1 package.
The International shipping is only £2.59, so if they have to split your order, thew will charge you an extra £2.59.
Sneaky, but wouldn't put me off buying.

Original Poster

You could always pre-order all the ones you want, and if you find them cheaper before the 28th of March, cancel !

The extra charge is so low that I don't care anyway... still below £20 for discs that would cost about £80 in the shops. Proper job!

As for the dubious nature of the HD DVDs on 28th March 2008, I would guess that they are placing orders for the discs and they are due in then or they've bought a job lot of HD DVDs from someone clearing stock and they won't be available to send on until that date. I'm sure it'll be all good.

And I very much doubt you would find Battlestar Galactica or Heroes seasons one for less than £12 anywhere anytime soon in this country. WELL worth it.

Great thing about HD-DVD, region free !

Just noticed that [url]www.dvdcrave.com[/url] have the same titles on cheep.
Must be an Australian distributer.

Original Poster

Actually, pretty much all out of stock at dvdcrave. Interesting tho...

Hi sorry to sound dumb but not done much importing because of the £18 limit as i actually got charged a handling fee by the post office once ...does the £18 limit include the post and packing ? and also if we go over 18 pound is it just supposed to be the vat on what we pay for it or do they take the english price and charge the vat on that .Any info would be kindly appreciated as heroes at that price is to good to miss.
thanks again

Original Poster

£18 is how much you paid for the item. Postage/insurance does not count. Use a site like [url]www.xe.com[/url] to get an accurate currency conversion, and if you want to order more than £18, do it as a separate order. OK ?

Heroes is only £14(ish) plus shipping, so no worries there.

some of the prices that posters are converting are wrong.

for example 29.99 Australian dollars is about £14

Original Poster

Don't forget to check their 'International Price', as it doesn't include the australlian sales tax, which is included with their listed prices
Aparently if you pay by paypall, you can bypass the 'extra' shipping charge for some of the box-sets !

Just a warning to everyone but.... if you are receiving a package from overseas, please be aware that it may incur customs charges on arrival in the UK. From 2 April 2007 any package that attracts customs charges will also incur a Royal Mail handling fee of £8.

Anyone know what the customs charges are likely to be on the boxed sets? Assuming that £8 also hits it could start adding up!!

Grabbed BSG season 1 and Shaun of The Dead for around £20 including postage :thumbsup:

Voted hot!

Geez, why don't they ever discount Transformers or 300? I just want them as demo DVDs to show of my 1080p panel

Very hot.
Ordered 3.

It wont let me order. When i login it says You need to confirm your registration.
Please check your email for instructions. Lo & behold not had any email from them at all.
