Has anyone ordered from Directvideo in Canada?

I ordered Brotherhood of The Wolf and Vidocq over a month ago from Directvideo in Canada, and they have not shipped Vidocq since BOTW is not yet released. I contacted them via e-mail a couple of days ago to remove Vidocq from my order, as I have an opportunity to acquire it in a trade. I still have not received a response from them. They do not have an on-line order management tool. This is a little frustrating. Does anyone have any experience with them? I am not sure I will order there again.

i ordered earlier this year from them and the site offers little in the way of frills. My order always came up processing when I went to check. Then bang, it's in my mailbox.

Dreadful website. It's best to call before ordering to make sure the title(s) you want is in stock. Their in-stock preparedness is not very impressive. Otherwise, they're reliable and aboveboard.

I ordered BOTW from them on two weeks ago and it shows that it shipped as of he 25th. First time using them..seem reliable and are quick to respond to email. I fired a blurb to them on last weekend and they responded right away.

Hope that helps.

Are there any other Canadian retailers with good prices that ship to the U.S. and have on-line management tools.

excellent customer care with forum
they do have really unique on-line product managing tools (flexicard!) which allows you to reserve a movie and ship whenever you want (of course it must be in-stock )
