Has anyone ordered from Kung Fu DVD City?

http://www.kungfudvdcity.com/

They have a rather unusual looking site, very small and somewhat unorganized -- but their prices are incredible, it appears that everything is 7.99 and they're throwing in a free 45 minute collection of old school Kung Fu movie trailers with every order.

Has anyone ordered from them, or even heard of them?

Going by the photos in their foreign section alone, some look like older HK
releases which sell for $7.99 or under in most Chinatowns, whereas others
like Lady Snowblood with it's European coding logo, Izo which doesn't have
a release with English subs yet that I'm aware of (they don't list them,
but it's implied that everything is for English speaking fans), Casshern and
Versus (non region 1) which go for more than $7.99 anywhere else and
Crying Freeman with "DEAD! Why the tears fill with my eyes?" written in
the banner at the top of its cover are pretty safe bets as far as bootlegs.

They also only have a Yahoo e-mail address or P.O. Box for contact info.
I'd stay away.

Im a big Kung Fu guy. My 300 dollar region free player died, so I tried testing out the "legit" PanMedia versions of Kung Fu from the various media outlets. THEY STUNK! They were always dubbed and full screen, you know the deal. So here is what I did, I ordered some hard to find titles off of EBAY. They were all 5.99 a piece. I got my first shipment last week and I was not at all suprised when i discovered they were dvd-rs. The kicker is that they looked 10X better than my "legit" dvds. When I recieved the dvds the package said "kungfudvdcity.com" I went to the site and i saw the same movies for 7.99.

If you want hard to find dvds and you dont mind the bootleg thing then I would patronize this site. If your a guy who must have the official versions then avoid them. The came promptly and the dvds came sealed and undamaged. I was very happy with my hard to find Asian dvds from this company because they come with the official authentic dvd case, they have artwork on the dvds and they are the Celestial versions that cost over 15 bucks. They look great and i dont even mind the fact that they are dubbed.....heck Shaw doesnt seem to care why should I?

P.S. I have tons of legit videos and the only ones I bought from this company were the ones I couldnt find or were so butchered by PanMedia.
