    Dont use play.com if you DONT live in the UK. They ship from "tax free" jersey/guernsey. Although items of low value are allowed into the UK from the channel islands, for the rest of Europe, they get stopped at customs, requiring a trip to the local customs office, and local VAT must be paid. Complete waste of time.

    Terrible service also. They often billed me TWICE for the same item, and shipped 2 times. Impossible to phone them, and when you get through to them, they REFUSE to refund unless you ship the item back. Then, after shipping, (which COSTS YOU), they "lose" your return (unless you send it registered, which costs a fortune, when international)... so you DONT get your money back.

    In my book, I cannot recommend them. Go with amazon or other online provider. Much better

    Erm...I can't not recommend Play. Fastest shipping I've ever come across. Customer Service so good they can't wait to help you.

    But you highlighted something. It's a UK company. Why would you buy from a company in another country? The sky-high shipping and overheads make any deals you might possibly get almost defunct. Plus customer service can be a bitch.

    So all you US people, don't buy from them. Anyone in the UK. Say hello to one of the best damn e-tailers :)
