Misc: On-line shopping for Region 4 DVDs

What a sad experience looking for Region 4 DVDs in Australian on-line shops; same prices (plus / minus 10%), same items, same unavailable items, minimal user interfaces to their on-line catalogues and eye candy that takes forever to load. The only substantial difference is how each shop calculates shipping costs! No reviews (except HMV) and no user history; nothing to draw me back. Compare prices with GetOnce and pick the cheapest shop.
