I just read this on F@*$edcompany.com.
Jeff, I edited the topic header slightly in order to indicate that, as of right now, the information is still somewhat "soft".
Well, the website is still running. -- not that that means anything.
I felt the move from DVDExpress to Express was sort of a despairation move. Maybe the company had thir rent escroe tied-up in Enron stock?
DVD Express used to be the best, cheapest, fastest, most reliable company on the internet. My history of the orders with them (from mid-1998 to mid-2000) is longer than my arm.
It's sad when great companies take a fall like this.
That's about the same time that I bought from them. They had great service, but fell really fast.
Like Jon, I was another big-time buyer at DVD Express and later Express.com. I put in my first order with them (the Criterion A Night to Remember) in May 1998... and my last (Damage) in April 2000. In that time, I bought 298 discs through them, including 49 Criterion releases.
I once logged on to their site and added up what I'd spent at their store. The result: after reeling in horror at the size of that number, I resolved to never again add up what I'd spent at any DVD store.
But they fell hard when they fell: few titles in stock and a seeming inability to ship even those. Like many other customers, I finally got tired of making excuses for them and went off to find a new vendor (DVD Empire, in my case).
I'm sorry to hear that Express is having trouble... but I can't say I'm surprised. The bubble burst a long time ago: ever since then, it's seemed just a matter of time.
