    Hey all,

    With my newfound interest in DVD's from other regions...I was wondering if anyone knew of stores in NYC's Chinatown that might sell HK or Korean DVD imports. I'd love to bypass some of the shipping charges and get them asap. Are there any good stores down there?

    Thanks

    There are a bajillion of them, but it's still cheaper to buy from China because of the markup (most stores sell a $12 disc at $24.95 in Chinatown) Shipping is only $6-7 anyway.

    And frankly, virtually every DVD in Chinatown is a bootleg

    Jeff,

    Where exactly is shipping that cheap? I wanted to order from DVDshelf and for two dvd's, shipping was more than the cost of the DVD's themselves. If I recall correctly, it was $20.
