Anyone Heard of FamilyVidoeo?

I guess it's a B&M shop/site here in the US. A guy from India was wanting me to help him get something from them but I just wanted to make sure they were reliable first.

Thanks in advance

No, stay far far away from them. I pre-ordered (more than once this has happened, but this last one was the last stray & by far the worst experience I had with them) a DVD & they never got it in. I kept e-mailing them & got no answer. 2 months past the release date goes by & still no answer to my requests asking them to cancel the order at that point. I had to contact the BBB to get them to respond & cancel the order. Epinions & Bizrate has folks reporting similar problems. Long waits on items supposedly in stock or pre-orders never being fulfilled.

My experience with Family Video is quite a bit different. All of my orders have been fulfilled in a timely manner, including obvious misprices. They just shipped out The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Blu-Ray for $9 that streets tomorrow. The only 2 points of concern for me is that they mail in padded envelopes(not very protective, but I never got a damaged item despite this packaging) and they do charge your card at the time you place the order(even if it's a pre-order).

I've ordered several products from them. They are shipped quickly, with competitive pricing, and good customer service. The packaging isn't great, but I've never had a disc come damaged or other problems of that nature. I can recommend them.

I've probably placed close to 30 different orders with them without a problem. I really wish DVD Price Search would list them. They sometimes have great deals.

The padded envelopes haven't led to damaged product for me. I've placed many orders with them (especially during the heady days of their $5 off of $5 coupon), without any complaints.

Just received Texas Chainsaw Massacre a day before release, glitch price honored and in fine shape in the padded envelope.

thanks for all of the replies. i created an account but unfortunately the price has increased...or has been corrected I should say. my friend wanted the Blu ray version of Journey to the center of the earth with the 3d glasses. when he saw it, it was marked as $9.99 but I was too late

oh well, thanks again for the replies
