Question regarding what is cheaper -

Would it be for me, as an American, to buy the HTDAAB box set with DVD as an import, or buy it directly from amazon.co.uk?

I'm not sure what the rate of exchange is, so if any one could help me out with what would be cheaper to do, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Postage from the UK could be expensive.


Also, there are currency converters available online. Just Google "currency converter."

One possible big consideration - most DVDs from overseas cannot be played on American DVD players, they are usually region specific...

I didn't know the box set wasn't coming out in the US.

Very good point. I had that problem with the Electrical Storm DVD I bought in Dublin and then couldn't play here.

I found the solution to this though was to buy a Cyberhome multi-region DVD player, which I bought for the grand sum of USD 29.99 at Best Buy.

I can now download and play all non-commercially released PAL & NTSC U2 concert DVD's, (which is a good thing.)

Good point. Does anyone know for shizzle that it isn't?

Worst case, you order from amazon.ca (Canada). We are still cheaper than your US dollar.
