Half.com now has an option so that you can set a preorder list and if something comes it stock it will automatically bill and ship it to you. Seems kinda funky to me, but we'll see how it works.

This actually seems like it sucks, because you'd probably want tolook at the seller who you're buying from and you'd also not likely be able to use coupons.It will also cut down on the avaliability of new discs

Actually, if you click on pre-order, it lets you specify the quality you want, and a minimum seller rating for the seller, along with other things.

Looks pretty good to me!

Unfortunately you can't screen out those scammers who KNOWINGLY post things under the wrong UPC with the disclaimer "Not DVD! LAserdisc" or "Not CD--Cassette".

I wish Half.com had a link directly to email them from each page to make it easier to report those people. Whenever I see one I email them about if I have the time. They will email me back and tell me they made the seller remove the fraudulent info.

It's frustrating when you get all excited about seeing something in the DVD list and you click on it..."VHS not DVD!". Ergh.
