I was just wondering if anyone has heard of them, or ordered from them. I bought 2 dvd's from them a little while ago, arrived in 4 days if I remember, and I think shipping was like $1. Anyways I was planning on placing another order, but I figured I'd get some info from the dvd shopping pros first. thanks.

Am I paranoid or does this seem a LITTLE like a plant?

No, I've never ordered but I've been to their site. Their prices are more expensive than many B&M's. That alone would keep me from shopping at their site, regardless of $1 per item shipping.

They also don't have many movies to buy. 11 horror titles? 52 comedies? Come on... I can do better than that at even the worst B&M. The site is kind of funny, too. One movie shows up as both a Sci-Fi title, and as a Romantic Comedy! To top it off, that title has the wrong box cover shown.

Why do I get the feeling this site is run out of someone's tool shed?

It probably doesn't provide that many answers, but is that bellsouth.net email address something to worry about?

Why would you think the email address mattered? It's just an email address. What would you rather be seeing?

Probably an address at the dvdgrand.com domain. I think that it's pretty darn likely the person who posted the original message is actually FROM dvdgrand, trying to drum up business.

But that would be an impossibility. When you register a domain, you cannot already have an email address from that domain, as that domain does not yet exist. When you register a domain, email confirmations get sent back to and they need to hear back from whichever email address you registered with. If you put an address that doesn't yet exist, none of that can happen.

You'll never see a matching address from a domain's WHOIS sheet unless that info is updated after the registration goes through, which no one usually does; or when one is renewed.

Having a regular ISP email address on a WHOIS sheet is pretty much par for the course unless you are a major company like MS or Amazon.
