    Alright so I'm sick of DVDpacific and their crappy shipping. Ever since they started their new site, they only give one option for international shipping, it's like $3.95 or some crap. Anyway, I ordered Django and City of the Living Dead on blu-ray and they shipped May 25th, and today, June 15th, it still hasn't arrived. They used to have a shipping option for like $6.50, and you got your packages in decent time, but this is ridiculous. Three fucking weeks from the States? Fuck, I get stuff from the UK faster, for about the same price for shipping.

    Therefore, I've decided to give DiabolikDVD a try. Anybody ever order from them? Their shipping is a bit more expensive, which is good, since you don't have to wait like 14 years to get your packages. I think I might give them a try the next time I go to order a Blue Underground blu-ray. I swear to God blu-ray will be obsolete by the time I receive my package from DVDpacific. This is ridiculous.

    I've ordered from them once, a couple of years ago. Everything went just fine. I'd say give them the biz.

    I made one order with DVD Pacific since they "re-opened" and it may be my last, unless they're a last resort.

    I ordered an Anchor Bay DVD that only been released a few years ago. I received it from DVD Pacific... and the coverart was BADLY dented in and even had a couple of what looked like "finger holes" punched through the coverart. Seriously, it looked worse than most used DVD's. I've rarely even seen an old rental DVD on the shelf at a store that looked that bad. I'm shocked that they even sent it out in the condition it was in.

    Since you have to pay to send any defective item back to them and it was only $7 to begin with, I said screw it. I ordered it from Amazon and received a perfectly new looking DVD.

    I've ordered from DiabolikDVD a few times in the past, and no complaints.

    Diabolik is awesome! Jesse and Joe are both true horror/cult/exploitation buffs so you should feel good supporting them. I've used them quite a few times and have had great experiences every time ...

    I've ordered from them a couple of times recently and have no complaints at all. I can't remember exactly how long it took for items to ship but they seem to have arrived in a timely manner. Also great customer service.

    As long as the price at Diabolik isn't too much more expensive then the other choices, I'd rather give them my business. Those guys seem to be one (two?) of us.

    I always pick the $3.95 option and three weeks is about how long it takes to arrive. I have no problems with it as that method is cheaper and always seems to bypassed any issues with extra duty fees. It will get there have patients.

    I've used Diabolik and found their service second to none. Fast shipping, great communications, a really friendly company to deal with. Awesome selection, too!:)

    Chalk up another recommendation for Diabolik. They're not the cheapest, so I can't say I go to them for things I can readily pick up at Amazon. But they get some gems the Amazon long tail isn't long enough to cover, and they consistently ship fast and with careful packing.

    If their prices were just a *little* bit closer to Amazon on the more mainstream titles I'd eat the cost difference and toss them more business just out of appreciation, rather than wait for the moments when I want a rarer title only they have. But it's a testament to their merit that I'm tempted to give them more business for their sake than just my own.

    Has your order arrived yet Matt?

    I've been a member of this forum for years, not posted very much but always enjoyed your expertly-worded (and entirely justified) rants about things like this!! :D
