Thought there might have been a thread but couldn't find one.

Was thinking about importing GT5:P and it seems an alright price here. Around £20 which is cheaper than it would cost to buy the PSN card from ebay (£30).

Anyone used them before? Decent or shit?

Very decent. Ships to themselves in the UK (croyden?) then on to you. No import tax. Goods here very quickly too. Actually prefered them to play-asia for a long time.

£20 is a good price, it's supposed to cost more than that if you buy it here.

I could grab you a card if you want, but you'll end up with left over Yen and it'll end up costing you more than £20 again.

I've used them a couple of times for DS games, quite a while ago so I have no idea if my experience of them is still valid.
I found that delivery times weren't always great - sometimes they were extremely quick as they obviously had the item in the UK, but other times they can be slow if they don't have it to hand and have to ship it to themselves, then post it out to you.
I also found that their prices often aren't very competitive - their prices can vary quite wildly and whenever you buy something from them, always check against other import sites. Movietyme.com on the other hand seems consistently good for cheap prices (on DS games at least).

Cheers, heard they are not always the fastest but I don't really mind anyway.

I'll order then, probably.

Do you need to order by express or what?

No, just order with free shipping and you should still get in within a week. They are generally quite good, I use them a fair bit myself and I know a lot of people who use them to import Japanese DVDs.

They're not always great for getting you things like Special Editions, but I generally agree with rmj's assessment, although the Chump makes some not-incorrect points. The twice that I've had stuff not delivered at all, though, they've been very quick to send out replacements once the 28 days or whatever has passed, so I can't fault their customer service.
