I just upgraded my player to code-free (among other things) and really want to order the R2 disc, RING from BlackStar. Before I do, does anyone here have any experience with them?
tia,

I've never heard a bad comment about these, and used them on many occasion myself, each time being 100% satisfied with the service...
However, no idea what they are like for international orders, but domestically, they are hard to beat...

Would not hesitate in recommending them

except on price as they’ve now jacked them up to about 5% off MRSP. Their customer service however, is unbelievably good - you actually get a time on the automated reply to your e-mail saying when you can expect a reply. It‘s never more than a couple of hours and in every case they responded quicker than that with me.

I ordered the Star Wars Box-Set (VHS) one week bevore Christmas '00 and shipped the set to my German address. I had no problems at all. It only took 5 days until I received the box and everything was 100% OK. So far I never had any problems with them…

I have ordered quite a lot from them and they've always been very good. I tend to use play247 because they are usually cheaper, but Blackstar are great for stuff play haven't got.

tia,
I would have to say that they are the best out there. I have ordered from them a few times, and they do take care of the customer. I will continue to do so and order from them whenever I need an R2 disk....

I've used them a couple of times about year ago and everything went fine. They cofirmed the order, sent the stuff and I got it about three weeks later which is cool for down here.

As far as my limited knowledge goes for UK sites, I'd recommend them.

Thanks all! I just placed my order for RING and the PAL tape of RAVAGE. It'll be a couple of weeks before RING gets released, though...

As a matter of fact.....

The are the only UK site I have ordered from, I bought the R2 Snatch, and DRIVE SE, FREE Worldwide Shipping, how can you beat that? OH and the DVD's came in 7 days. I live in New JErsey so that comes in handy, they keep you up to date when your dvd's get shipped and very friendly, I agree with the rest of the posts, very highly recommended.
