    My copy of 'Random Harvest' arrived here in Australia today, just six
    days after being mailed, using 'standard shipping'.
    And yes, I'm still waiting patiently for a couple of others
    (Criterion's 'The Leopard' and the re-release of 'The Last Waltz' but
    the savings are so great compared to Amazon or even DVDPacific that I
    don't mind waiting a month or even two.
    It's bad that they charge your credit card on order -- it should
    certainly be on despatch. But I think that's a relatively minor
    complaint. So far I've eventually(!) received everything I've ordered.
    Back-orders are the only ones I've had to wait for. Every title I
    order ahead of release-date arrives only a few days at most after
    North American release.
    If you're unhappy, just don't use them. Both Amazon and DVDPacific are
    great too... and I really like the way Amazon handles return of faulty
    discs. In fact, I'm about to tackle DVDSoon about a fault on my Random
    Harvest disc -- that'll put them to the test.....

    I hope they'll replace my damaged Looney Tunes boxset. Two of the
    discs keep falling out when I close it because the DVD holders got
    smashed (either at the warehouse or in transit). It's ashame I can't
    just get the case replaced as there is nothing wrong with the discs.
    Being part of a set I'll play regularly I feel an un-damaged case is
    warranted. It's ashame I can't replace the damaged DVD holders myself
    - they seem to be glued on.

    I faxed the form to them on Wednesday.

    That's the same that happen with my Matrix Box. The Disks are perfect, but
    the case was ripped. I asked for a case, but got the whole set again.

    Re postage -- Until recently, airmail postage from DVDSoon was free.
    Now it's about $5 a disc. But they have a membership program which
    costs, from memory, around $65 -- that's in perpetuity, not per year.
    That should be paid off pretty quickly since membership gives free
    airmail postage and a 5 per cent discount off purchase price.
    Re Australian sites, I use ezydvd.com.au, and atlanticdvd.com and
    dvdorchard.com. I use DVDSoon (and sometimes Amazon and DVDPacific) for
    the titles you can't buy here in Australia, plus discs with substantial
    musical content, since NTSC avoids the 4 per cent lift in pitch we
    suffer due to the PAL film transfer speedup.

    You got that membership bit wrong - the Fidelity iCard is an annual thing -
    you have to pay CA$49.98 every 12 months to remain a member. BUT you don't
    have to make many purchases before you reap the rewards - free shipping,
    some quite impressive membership discounts, special deals etc

    True. I got my money's worth in about 2 months.

  10. And I use Ezydvd.com.au for titles I can't get in the USoA.

    Even with the $4.50AU shipping to here the prices are still great.
