I took a chance ordering from Blackstar in the UK, since I am in Michigan.

I ordered a R2 release, as I put a DVD Rom drive in my computer and found out how to play movies from other regions.

The set ran me about $36 and some change after conversion from $24.99 pounds.

I ordered the movie on the 4th of December and received a shipping notice on the 6th of December.

I received the DVD on Monday the 11th, 5 days after shipping from the UK.

I was a bit hesitant at first as I have never ordered from anywhere other then a US company. But the great service and fast shipping will have me buying many things from them, most notibly the Friends season box sets.

Plus they have free worldwide shipping going on as well, so that saved me some money.

So, for those that can play movies from any region and might be a bit hesitant from ordering outside the US, let this be a push to take the leap.

I'm going to send an email to Blackstar customer service as well to commend them on their service.

Heck, I coulda told you that! They're great. I've ordered Eyes Wide Shut, Romper Stomper, Man Bites Dog, and Glengarry Glenn Ross from them all on separate occasions. They've always had free shipping and their prices are very resonable. It usually takes anywhere from 7-10 business days for me.

I second the recommendation of using them!

It's almost worth having a CC problem or querying them about a title just to experience how outstanding their customer service is.

I have to 2nd (or 3rd?) that opinion. They have been great with all my orders. VERY quick when the item is in stock (and even when it's backordered). Highly recommended.

I can't say enough nice things about Blackstar. They even put personally signed thank you notes in with your order. Fast service and nice people. I highly recommend them to anyone.

I'll 2nd all the previous comments ! They are a great company to deal with.

Something that hasn't been mentioned yet is that when you preorder and they aren't able to ship it out a day or so before the release date they give you a additional discount on top of the preorder discount.
