I'd like some feedback as to what the fine members here at DVD talk consider to be the best DVD price comparison web site.

Maybe there isn't a single best one, but maybe 2, 3, or 4?

Thanks to all who reply.

I have to agree 100% with naitram - its the best there is by a long shot, and I think most others on this forums would agree...

There's no need for you to tell me you think I'm right - We'll just assume that!

DVDPrice Search is by far the best. Only problem is they donít really update MSRPs if they are lowered, other than that it is a fantastic site.


Moving to On Line Store forum.

So far the only site that really fits the bill is DVDpricesearch.

It does have some glitches or I'm just a bit retarded (BEANS & FRANKS!!!!!)

Perhaps some of you power internet users can fill me in if I'm doing something wrong.

I like to fill up my cart with the next 30 or so titles I'm interested in so I can track them daily or weekly. The problem is that periodically I need to go through and re-enter all of the titles

Is this happening because my "cookie" is expiring? Do they periodically flush the carts on the site?



As you can see I'm humbly bowing down before your superior knowledge... so please don't be to harsh on me (Looks like I'm going to have to get Mid-evil on his A**)

JELLIS,

I checked out the sit you suggested (BargainFlix.com) and I would have to agree the layout is much nicer than dvdpricesearch but I think that is were their advantages stop.

Unless I missed it you can't store what state you are in so that the total price is sensitive to tax/no tax. This can make a difference.

Also for the titles I searched (all current titles) I only received pricing for 2 to 3 sites. Dvdpricesearch kills you with prices!

Thanks for throwing it out but I'll stick with dvdpricesearch until I've seen better.

I won't even go into how poor the discussion board seemed. It seemed that if I leaned in close enough to my monitor that I would pickup the faintest hint of tumble-weeds rolling through the board.

I now repent and promise to NEVER take a peek at any other forum again! Please forgive my beloved DVDTalk forum community!

Yeah, I know what you mean about the message board - I looked at it once, well, maybe twice. They have just had the prices for what I was looking for and the stores that I was looking for them listed. Don't get me wrong, I have used DVD PriceSearch many times and will continue to use them - I was just offering it up as another suggestion (DVDPriceSearch was already listed, so I couldn't use that one) - I still prefer their layout to DVD PriceSearch (Just my opinion).
