If anyone other than me cares, Arrow responded that the Fassbinder blu's are new transfers.

Not on sale, but now would be a good time to grab their upcoming special limited edition 4K scan of camera negative of Fulci's City of the Living Dead (which I'm assuming is Region B only). --Peter

Thanks in advance

For any order other than maybe those available for £2.25 (4 or less single items which I think is around 0.5kg) I would strongly suggest upgrade. The upgrade for the smaller package goes to £10.5 which might not be worth it.

For approx 5-13 single items (less than 1kg) -- std shipping is £7.50 vs tracked/expedited £12. If you're order 10 items or more, the $5 seems to be pretty minimal.

Once you go beyond that (about 1kg) then it's just silly not to upgrade. £13 vs £14 up to 2 kg (around 24 singles). Anything beyond 2kg is automatically upgraded to tracked. Just for giggles I tried to see how high they would go and I got about 125 items in before it wouldn't let me check out. Weight was listed 10-15kg and cost of £60.

About 130 items it just wouldn't let me checkout -- ARROW appears to stop you if your order is more than £1000 so it's not a weight thing. I tried a bunch of boxsets and same thing happened at around 40 items, but exactly at £1000

even for Amazon I never use std shipping anymore -- Amazon Global Std (100% I-parcel for me so far)is marginally more if at all and has averaged about 7-8 days for more and you get tracking. For non UK Amazon sites, AGS is often less expensive than Std though I have found it takes longer than UK packages since it seems all package go from FR/Italy to UK and then the US. I know some people just just to priority which is about double and I've never done that for UK or Germany.
Nope- just paid the 2.25 for under ď500 gramsĒ

I ordered 4 of the Fassbinders to keep the shipping down. I'm going to get the Criterion of the TV series box; & I'll pick up the other 3 next sale.

Does anyone know if Arrow would get upset with 2 four piece orders (shipping is cheaper than one 7 or 8 piece order)?

I doubt it. Especially if you've ordered from them in the past.

Thanx! I compared my Criterion Maria Braun DVD to the Arrow box set DVD; & the new transfer is a major upgrade (I'm assuming Arrow used the same transfer that Criterion did....)

Ended up with 8 total: all the Fassbinder titles other than the TV box & a noir called Woman On The Run.

Unfortunately, there are 2 titles from dvd box #1 not available on br; I say unfortunate because that dvd box sells for well over $200 on ebay & Amazon!

I ordered Woman On the Run during the last sale. It's a solid film noir and Lisbeth Scott does a great job as the femme fatale in the film.

Edit: was actually Ann Sheridan in the lead role. Got it mixed up with Too Late For Tears (also an Arrow BD) which was also on sale.

Glad to hear it; it was kind of a blind buy. I considered a Woody Allen (Stardust Memories), but my firmware has had issues with a couple Sony Woody Allen USA blu's; so I didn't want to take the risk. Ironic, that I can play all regions, but a few discs have problematic copy guards........ I had one 2011 USA disc that wouldn't play on my December 2012 firmware. It played on my neighbor's $40 Philips, so it was definitely the firmware.

Ordered 7/29/18
Dispatched 8/2/18
Received 8/6/18

Paid for Tracked Shipping. Really happy considering the last time I ordered directly from Arrow Video last year, my package was lost.

Snuck in a last-minute order for 11 items last night. Received a shipping confirmation less than 17 hours later. Not bad.

My recent order was my first with Arrow UK and I didn't go for the option that would get me a tracking number. Typically how long has it been for others between being notified that your order was "dispatched" and it showing up at your door?

ETA: Discs arrived today. Dispatched on 07/30/2018. Not a bad wait time for an International shipment.
