Re...

I know hkflix.com has it but I'm not sure how much. If you go there, you may want to make sure the version you check out is the Mega Star one.
If you want to see a review of it, check here.

at hkflix.com there are 2 versions of Iron Monkey,

one is about $15, and it's Distributor: WA [A China-Based Distributor]

other one is $25 and it's Distributor: Mega Star [A Hong Kong-Based Distributor]

I want the one by Mega Star cuz that's what all people's been talking about but seems like I can get it for cheaper at dddhouse or HiViZone?

re.

The Mega Star one is the good one. Don't forget to add the postage to that price to see what the final costs are.
I haven't priced that one around.

The Mega Star version is $17.50(shipping extra) at hivizone and is region 0, so your R1 player will be able to play it.

Yes, Megastar version is the one to get.

I would say, order from hivizone or Hkflix. Depends on how fast you want it. HKflix will maybe cost a few $ more, but you'll likely get the disc several days (2-5?)faster than from Hkflix. (I'm assuming you are in the USA as you list no location).

In addition:
You may want to check your local stores if you haven't already. Best Buy in my area finally sold their last MegaStar copy of Iron Monkey just a few weeks ago. (around $20)

cheers,
Gabe

Ok..store to store, with the average shipping time for me..



www.hkflix.com-27.95 total shipped...5-10 days to get to you, if you use the better shipping, cost goes up to 29.95 and will get to you in 4-7 days.

www.hivizone.com-22.50 total shipped...7-13 days to get to you

www.dddhouse.com- 20.60 total shipped....5-10 days to get to you

www.pokerindustries.com-28.49 total shipped...3-6 days to get to you...


dddhouse.com is the best deal....it is worth the extra couple of days, and if you want to spend a couple of bucks more, you can take 2-3 days off that shipping time...

also, dddhouse and hivizone pull away from the other two stores if you are going to order more then one dvd...

u guys are great!

Thanks for all your advice and tips. I bought Iron Monkey via dddhouse.com. I thought it was a great deal. I should have read "OFFICIAL Newbie Help: HK DVD & Discussion" first even before I posted this question. That's a very useful thread as I plan to be a repeat customer of dddhouse in the future. that'll also be great to get in on the lower shipping as a return customer. sweet!
