Re: Amazon Prime - Shipping Speed Downgraded After Order Placed

In the UK, there is no minimum purchase requirement for SuperSaver, so Prime here really is just for impatient people. IMHO it's poor value for money anywhere, but moreso here since everything...

Re: TGG Direct Double and Triple MGM Features

The Goldfoot double is fine. However, it's a shame that TGG are missing sales by making the things so darn hard to get. Most online stores only have them up for "preorder" and DeepDiscount have...

Re: Amazon Prime - Shipping Speed Downgraded After Order Placed

A lot of people don't realise is that paying for your shipping has more effect on how your order is handled within Amazon than it does on how your order is treated once it leaves Amazon.

Re: cheapest best Region free dvd player you have experience with???

The Oppos are great bits of kit, but very expensive.

Personally I'd recommend buying a pre-modded player, although these aren't anywhere near as easy to find in the USA as they are here in the UK....

Re: R4 (Australian) buying advice

You could always go for a reputable Australian retailer - unless, of course, it has to be Ebay due to price or the item being out of print.

You could look at DevotedDVD or EZYDVD, both of whom...

Re: Iron Man: The Complete 1994 Animated Television Series - May 4th

Sounds like one of the laser diodes had died. DVD players have two - one for reading CD's, one for DVD's. BD players have three - there's an additional violet laser for reading BluRay discs.

Re: [Yahoo News] Windows 8 dropping the ability to play DVDs

I shan't be moving to Win8 - not least because of the ghastly Metro being foisted upon us. If they discontinue support for 7, I'll be moving to Linux. Fast and gets me from under the MS (or Apple)...

Re: Dark Shadows: The Complete Series (4/10/2012)

Re: Do you still have the first DVD you ever purchased?

Still got mine; I got it with the DVD player - as part of an offer I think - it's the Godzilla remake which actually at the time made quite a good showcase for DVD. The release is so old it's in one...
