Received T2 and Braveheart yesterday from Buy.Com. I have consistently received my pre-orders the same day if not before the release date from these folks. I cant understand what problems peole have with them.

You cannot understand the problems people have with Buy??? Have you read all of the thread related topics regarding Buy.com? I will admit that most of the time they are right on target but even I have had problems with them!!! Still have not received two 8/15 preorders...Little Rascals and Planet of the Apes Boxed Set!!! Depending on how often you order from them and in what number of titles you may have ordered, it is a matter of time before you experience some type of problem!!!
I strongly believe they took on more than they could handle with Reel and with offering the free shipping in June along with all of the coupons!!! It does not surprise me that they are having trouble filling all of the orders for August!! They took on way too much!!!

Consider yourself fortunate. I've had very good luck with them, too. On the other hand, I had some bad experiences with Reel, whereas most people had only positive ones.

I have been ordering from Buy for about a year. I have yet to get a pre-order early. The people that get them ear;y must live right by the Buy warehouse.

I received my Braveheart this past Saturday which I consider to be great! (street date is Tuesday)

My friend is now wishing he had pre-ordered it!

Here is a run down of the problems with Buy.

1. Pet Shop Boys: Somewhere In Concert

arrived exactly one month after the street date. I dont mind cause its not limited.

2. Jaws -- arrived one week late

3. Planet of the Apes box set (8/15)---hmm dont see it. cancelled order (8/26) bought from express.com, already have shipping confirmation.

4. Repo Man: Limited Edition Tin (8/22)---see POTA Box set.

5. T2 & Evil Dead 2: LET (8/29)---not even a shipping notice yet.

This month i also ordered:

(8/1) Phantasm 4 (came in late July)
(8/8) Supergirl: LE (came in 8/5)
(8/29) Braveheart (came in 8/26)

soooo:

4 orders i didnt recieve (3 of which are limited)
3 orders i did (1 of which is limited)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I already have 5 preorders for September.

Beyond, The -- Limited Edition Tin (9/26)
Edward Scissorhands (9/5)
Fly / Fly II (9/5)
Halloween 5 -- Tin (9/5)
Hellraiser / Hellraiser II -- Tin (9/19)

i hope they dont give me the same sh!t or i will stop using them entirely and switch to express. ... I miss Reel
