Anyone ever have trouble importing dvd's?

I was wondering if anyone has ever had trouble importing dvd's, I found http://www.tower.co.uk and was wondering if it would have trouble getting through customs or anything like that. Would a US seller on Ebay be a better solution? Are their any domestic outlets or sites that sell Region 2 discs?

No problems so far ordering from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan. US customs has been pretty fast getting stuff through. My biggest order so far has been $200+. As long as you don't go over $400 or $500, I don't think US customs will charge any import duties.

I've ordered from Australia, England, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Switzerland, and possibly a couple more countries and have never had any problems importing DVDs into the USA. Generally I only order 1-2 items at a time though and the highest amount is usually under $100 when I'm buying a Buffy or Angel box set. So in small quanties, you shouldn't have any problems from what I've experienced.
