    I dunno, Dave. I just checked out the site and it seems a bit too good to be true. I searched around for an address and/or phone number (generally the sign of a reputable business, as I'd call before ordering) but couldn't find any.

    If it's legit, I'll be the first to order something. I'll be following this thread to see what the experts think! Thanks for bringing it up, either way!

    they don't sound like the most reputable organization.
    and notice that their New Additions page lists titles like Blade 2, Ice Age, etc. sounds like bootlegs to me.

    I knew that it sounded too good to be true. Oh Well [​IMG] Thank god, I didn't order from them! They have about 20 DVDs that I wanted, and I can't get them as cheap as $10 bucks anywhere else.

    This is most definately a crock. It has "bootleg" written all over it.

    Hmmm, appropriate coded DVD? Wonder what they mean by that....

    Damn, it's always too good to be true, eh? Well it looks like I'm stuck with good ol' Columbia House [​IMG] So far I've opened/closed 6 accounts for a total of 41 DVD's at a grand total of just under $400.
    Do the math [​IMG]

    I just tried to "check out", hoping that it would be with a secure server and I could check the certificate info, but it doesn't look like you can place an order.

    Yup, I knew they were either a-stolen or b-bootlegs

    Off to MPAA.org I go! Time to use them for something other than crushing independant film!

    Should the link and name of the site be removed, since they are obviously boots?
