    Due to Newline telling their vendors that they cannot advertise the DVD for preorder until 4/12. Laser's Edge will honor the 30% off price to anyone that has already pre-ordered it thru them and will put the DVD back up on their web site for sale when given the green light from Newline.

    Thanks,

    Parker

    Never ordered from them but I hear a lot of people being satisfied with their service. Not to mention that they sponsor HTF.

    Absolutely the best company I have dealt with! Unlike giant faceless corps like Amazon, they offer personal service-- heck you can call them up and place your order, they know exactly what the status is on backordered titles- and you get the feeling they really care about their customers.

    They don't always have the lowest price- but, to me, it's worth an extra buck or two to deal with people I feel good about giving my money to.

    These guys are HIGHLY recommended!

    It's hard for me to chime in here and

    give you an opinion you will take honsetly.

    After all, they are an advertiser here.

    Trust me when I say this....

    I have been with other online DVD companies.

    LASERS EDGE blows them out of the water.

    I never have to worry about my orders not

    coming by street date. In fact, LASERS EDGE

    makes sure you get your orders by or before

    street date.

    They are a *little* more expensive than some

    other online retailers, but what the cost buys

    you is dependable service without the worry that

    your order is not going to make it by street date.

    I don't even order my discs on the website. I

    just email Marc what I want. Unlike experiences

    with past online retailers, my orders arrive by

    street daye and they don't get screwed up.

    This is why we asked LASERS EDGE to come aboard

    as an advertiser. We wanted the BEST online

    retailer to be represented on the BEST Home Theater

    and DVD site.

    I'm holding out for the 4-disc set, I think. Hopefully there will be a similar discount on that one. [​IMG]

    Hey, I'm a big time Lasers Edge regular, though I go in the store since it's here in Indy.

    They are very friendly and thoughtful about orders, they've been doing it since early LD days too. These guys are hands on and are good with the HTF too.

    The only thing they ever have to fight is pricing, they can't always compete with super cut rate places, but they do their best to make up for it in service. I've seen them check spindles/swap boxes if a DVD sounds loose, etc.

    I hate to promote them so shamelessly but I honestly think they deserve it. For an in-store comparison, think Dave's Video in LA. They stock darn near everything.

    BTW, speaking of LDs they have the Rocky Horror LD box set for $15 and the 1941 LD box set for $5 (I think, maybe a bit more than that). I don't know what their shipping policies on LDs are.

    For six years now (started back in laserdisc days) I have been ordering from Laser's Edge. I have ordered over 1600 DVDs from them with zero errors and on time delivery. I pre-order 95% of the discs I purchase and they deliver. The team at Laser's Edge are movie experts and know their product. Service is literally flawless. Just order and forget everything like whether they will ship ontime or ship the correct items. Given the service and convenience, their prices are quite fair. As another bonus, the website is updated nearly daily and very accurate. The advanced search function lets one search for daily database changes and for upcoming titles....you can even search by studio name. On top of this, they stock nearly everything and will special order items not in stock.

    Both DVDFile and Lordoftherings.com (with a link to there at TheOneRing.net) are now saying that New Line themselves have set a rule restricting online sites from taking preorders until 4/12. So, if we place a preorder with Laser's Edge now, what happens to it? [​IMG]

    My guess is they'll stop the preorders until that date but make good on the ones that they've done.
    But I can't help but wonder what the heck business do these companies have trying to limit preorder time?? [​IMG] They've announced hot product and the retailers are now setting up their customers with preorders. If they didn't want preorders until some date they should have held the announcement back. What difference does it make when preorders start????

    Phillip, I DEFINATELY agree with that! It's confusing why they don't want to capitalize on the hype!!

    I just got an email back from Marc at Laser's Edge and he

    said that they will "be deactivating the title but will honor all pre-orders and will still be running the special when the title is active again". He also said that "there is no way they will cancel any orders already received".

    Yeah, the link is now no good. Ditto to the link from the picture of the DVD cover at the top of the main page here on HTF.

    Check out TORN (http://www.theonering.net/index.shtml) for an announcement of UK DVD prices:
    £22 for August and £44 for November!
    [​IMG]
    Is this normal for UK? With these prices and all the BBFC nonsense, I'm not suprised many people import from region 1.
