    Dome, I ordered from Playcentric once this summer because they had a serious deal going on and excellent prices on several DVDs I wanted. I have read some bad things about them, but my experience was pretty good. The bad thing is that they charge you right away, even if the item is not in stock. If you read between the lines on their site, you'll notice they kind of hide this fact with tricky wording. Having said that, I ordered six or seven titles, got all but two in less than a week, another a few days later and the final one took about three weeks. I saved about $25 off the lowest possible alternative, so it was a decent transaction.

    Also, you should know you will get Canadian versions. There is usualy no difference, but for instance, I got the Superbit edition of Gattaca and it came without the slip cover. That is something I don't care about, considering how much I saved.

    I recommend spending the extra $1 for first class mail.
