The site's crashed at the moment, but everything is 40% off. Don't know if this is 40% off retail or their regular prices. I'd recommend trying the site when the UK is sleeping...

They remove VAT for overseas customers, but shipping is determined by weight, not volume, so multi-disc sets could have rather high shipping costs. Good thing 1 is around $1.48 today.

I'm confused. Never heard of the "Network" you refer to in your posting. What's the web-site link? What do they sell, dvds? That 40% thingie intrigues the hell out of me!!!

I'd never heard of them either but some googling suggests the site is

networkdvd.net

My apologies. I'm so used to posting on UK boards, that I assumed people here would know about it. They're a DVD label that specializes in British TV and some older British film; they have access to some of the Rank archive, I believe.

It is indeed networkdvd.net

It's a really crap site to try and navigate through. Here's a link to a page listing out all of the releases available through the site:

Anyone know of any discount coupon codes (there is a place to enter these during checkout)?

I'd definitely recommend Black Narcissus - Network's disc has a superior transfer to the Criterion and identical extras. Hell Drivers is worth picking up for fans of The Wages of Fear, and The Shout is an unsettling oddity. However, the one essential purchase is Odd Man Out - an absolutely fantastic film from Carol Reed.

:up::up: I haven't seen the Hell Drivers, but the others you mention are all excellent and definitely worth buying. The Shout stuck with me for days...

They recently revamped their site (probably to reflect the sale) and consequently appear to have removed some items such as the repacked sets for Danger Man and Man in a Suitcase (both of which were much cheaper in repackaged versions). At least in the case of TV series, they seem to be clearing out the old stock first.

That said, there are some deals in there and I just placed an order last night for several films that are hard to get elsewhere. I wish they were still selling Buster Keaton: A Hard Act to Follow but it seems they pulled it.

Has anyone been able to order successfully from this site? Over the last couple of days, I have made several attempts and have had no luck.

Originally, there were no links to the various categories available on the site. These are now present as a sidebar, but I'm having different problems. Every time I try to load a new page, I'm taken back to the log in / create an account page. I finally gave up and tried to play along by creating an account. Again, the website stymied me. The site uses a visual security code for new registrations, but the damn image would not load. I tried multiple times with two different browsers and had no luck at all.

I tried to notify the admin using the contact info on the website. When I tried to send the message, I was take once again to the log-in/create account page. The mind boggles.

I didn't have a problem creating an account but ultimately had a fatal problem with WorldPay - I wish the people at Network would learn about PayPal or some other form of payment...
