Both of these sites have items on them that I want which are a few pounds cheaper than elsewhere, but I`m wary because I`ve not had any dealings with them in the past. Can anyone tell if they`ve had good (or bad) experiences of buying films from these sites, before I take the plunge?

Oh my God... I`m a Chav!

The first, I placed an order, they cancelled and never bothered telling me.

The second, it`s been a while since I used them but had no problems back then.

About a month ago, I placed an order for two CDs (good prices) with dvdi, and so far they`ve only sent one (which was wrong) - they won`t reply to my emails about returning this, or about when I can expect delivery of the other disk, so can I ask if anyone has a phone number for them? Nothing listed on their "contact details" on their website! >:(

I am from Germany and ordered the Waltons Season 1 Box from them about 7 weeks ago. The debitted my CC account 1 day later and according to their website that means that they posted the DVDs.

I never got anything so far. Emails weren`t replied until I said that I will contact my CC company. Then I got this:

Can you confirm you have now received your order in full?
Kind Regards
DVDi Customer Services Team

Needless to say that that was the last I heard from them and of course I never received any order nor a replacement.

I ordered a CD from these jokers. After a month with no sign of them shipping, I sent an e-mail cancelling the order and ordered elsewhere. I got no response from DVDi, but a week later I checked the order status online and it was cancelled. However, a month after cancelling, I received a dispatch e-mail for the CD. I checked the order status and it was now showing as dispatched. They had reinstated the order!
After several e-mails, I have still not got any response.

NOTE: DON`T PHONE THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICES NUMBER. It is a money making scam using an 05 number. All it does is spend 2 minutes giving you the e-mail address for various "departments" within the "company". This is all information that could easily be put on their contact web page, although still pointless as they never reply to e-mails!

I`d like to endorse the above. I ordered the Illusionist for a good price - it did eventually arrive (three weeks) but everything about this company and its procedures dismays me. I would never order from them again

I have ordered 2 CD boxsets on separate occasions. Still waiting on delivery from suppliers. They keep stressing, in subsequent e-mails, that I can cancel orders at any time. It would appear that they offer for sale, items which they do not have in stock, at prices they cannot comply with. Stick to Amazon.

Couldn`t agree more. I ordered a CD ("usually dispatched within 24 - 48 hours"). Couple of weeks later I checked to find that they were waiting for delivery from suppliers. Today, over six weeks since ordering I checked agin to find that there was reputedly a problem with my card. Just a small point but they hadn`t bothered to contact me about this. Back to Amazon for me also.
