Disclaimer: I have just recently placed an order with this website so I can not comment on how reliable this place is. I did hear some good feedback from a few CAGers so I took a chance with my order.

The information I have concerning this sale came from an email I received from them.

Thanks

Some decent deals, but nothing too great from what I could see.

A couple of the better ones I seen:
Kino's Journeys Collection ~19.99
King of Bandits Jing Collection ~19.99
Excel Saga Collection ~44.99

What are other people seeing/buying?

I'd like to hear about these guy's customer service too! There's a bunch of ADV titles I'd like, and this is a better deal than the Rightstuf 40% off sales- IF it's a reliable site! :D

Azumanga class Album - 34.98. Not bad, tho I'm not sure about shipping and stuff.

Weird, why does this say disc count 3? Hopefully a typo and not a bootleg.

Wow. thanks. I was about to jump on this deal but I'm skipping out. SO much negative feedback. buyer beware.

Funny right below the anime dvd they have a link to adv films and when you click on it, its a dead link.

Thats why I ran a search on CAG and I pm a few people here to see what their experiences are for DVDplanet.

The feedback on that website is pretty old.

Like I said, I put up a disclaimer on this thread. Some of the recent transactions from my fellow CAGs have been favorable. I haven't received my game in the mail yet so I can't say whether or not its a good website.

They are a legit store. They have a store front in Huntington Beach, CA. I'm not sure about ordering from them online though. I never have because the store is fairly close to my house.

Shitty Serivice.
Good deals.
You sacrifice a little to get something good in return I guess...

bear in mind that resellerratings is primarily a PC part reseller resource.

Also bear in mind that there are only SEVEN reviews/ratings that figure is coming from, and they are ALL over 2 years old. (July 2003).

I've ordered from them without a problem, and considering they're one of the indexed sites on dvdpricesearch, I consider them reputable. Every company is going to have a few customers fall through the cracks, but having no complaints filed about them in 2 years (and two of them on the same day, which sounds suspicious).

Take that site with a grain of salt.

This is a more realistic review site:

http://www.bizrate.c...3,prerd--1.html

"Over 25,000 customers have rated this store since 2000

Overall Rating Summary
Past Week Past Month Past 3 Months
Positive 77% 81% 82%
Neutral — 4% 3%
Negative 23% 15% 15%"

it sounds like 4 out of 5 people are satisfied, and 80% positive rating is really good, considering the only time most people want to give opinions of stores they're ordering from is when they've had a BAD experience. Nobody says anything when they're happy.

And I have a lot more gaps than that.

I thought about picking up their Samurai CHamploo. $15 is about $5 cheapoer than everywhere else. But I didn't ewant to go over $200.

Everything else I need I can get for the same price during a DDD 20% off Sale.

Sweet! Do these guys sell only legit copies? I want Kiki's Delivery Service but it lists it as having only one disk, and I thought the Disney releases had two disks.

Not a big order but...

Last Exile #5: Grand Stream (DVD) $14.98
Yu Yu Hakusho #30: King Urameshi (DVD) $12.48

Sub-total $27.46
Tax $0.00
(Media Mail) Shipping $0.00
TOTAL $27.46

If this goes smooth I'll order some more stuff later if the 50% off is still in effect. This is a small test to see how long the free shipping takes.

(The Rahxephon thinpack set for $45 is $13 cheaper than Best Buy! Oh so tempted...)

eh.. I was just trying to help. Those ratings are enough to make me avoid them. I'll look forward to your reports when you get your stuff.

I've ordered a number of times from them. Quick shipping, not a single problem. This si my first order with them this year (I've been trying to save money, that isnt going well tho). I placed a $185 order but 3 of which were preorders (the next volume of fullmetal alchemist, the seconds FMA starter set, the 2nd cardcaptor sakura set). Plus I finished a few other series. I'm sure I'll ahve no problems.

Yea this company has yet to burn me when ordering, I got Berserk from them a while ago. I'm gunna hop on this deal soon. I just wish Nausicaa was half off... it is anime after all, wonder what's up with that. At least I can get Najica Blitz Tactics with the pantsu for a good price ^_^. I also like the 2 pack of Millenium Actress and Ghost in the Shell Innocence as well as the good price on Jin-Roh special edition.

Agreed, I absolutely love this series. It's my favorite new anime coming out in the US. The manga is quite good as well.

Okay, I see Akira and Appleseed. But how did you get Steamboy for $9.99?
It shows up as $18.87 for UMD and $20.21 for DVD when I search.
