    Just thought I'd let everyone know a great site which I use all the time (sorry if you all know about it). www.cdwow.com is absolutely excellent. All chart CDs plus loads of others for just £8.99 including P&P. They arrive within 4-7 days. They also do loads of cheap DVDs (make sure you buy the right region though - Region 2 for UK DVD players). You can save so much on this site instead of going to the shops. It's not all chart stuff either, there's loads of Rock, Dance, Compilations, Soundtracks. Almost anything u want! Check it out if u haven't already.

    They are fabulous! Been using them for about 2 years now. It's not as good as it used to be now that they'er operating out of the far East, but it's still better than any other site I've come across.

    I equally like www.cdwow.com and www.play.com

    Cdwow is sometimes cheaper, but play have a different range of cd's. If you can't find a cd on cdwow, try play. Both have free p&p which is serioulsy great!

    I always buy my cds on the internet. Shops are just a rip off. They can't even match the internet price when they have a sale!!

    Just a note to anyone thinking of buying from CDwow. Because it is not always the British versions which ship, there may be different tracks on it. I've just received the Keane album from CDWow and it has only 11 tracks whereas the British one has 12. I've checked on Play.com and their Keane album has 12 tracks. Just thought I'd let u know before u make the same mistake as me!

    I bought my Keane album from Amazon.co.uk for just £8.49. Normally u gotta pay p&p but I spent over £25 (got the Breed 77 album aswell - it's very good!) which means p&p is free! w00t!

    Luckily it has all 12 tracks. Unfortunately, they don't sound half as good as when I saw Keane live. Can't stop now is my favourite song off the album, followed closely by She has no time. Beautiful!

    May be they had to resort on local stock to meet demand, 'cos mine has 12 track on it - came last week...

    cdwow - love them to pieces. i had an email from them recently saying that they were going to have to put a surcharge on for UK customers (only a £ or something) but i didnt see any evidence of it last time i got somethign off there. look out for special asian editions as theyre often excellent... i remember a couple of years ago buying the last kylie album off cdwow for £8 and when it arrived it was the special asian edition with a dvd and cd of extra tracks (they were selling it as an import on amazon for £20+).
    they really show amazon up with the free post all the way from hong kong!!! amazon will charge you £3, take twice as long, and theyre coming from reading or somewhere!!!

    Amazon's DC is just outside Milton Keynes... and yes it's very annoying, especially as I live 10 minutes away from it and they won't let you collect from there!

    Prefer Amazon, usually cheaper. Even if they aren't the marketplace sellers are just as good... shipping within 24hrs and cheaper....

    if all fails, eBay is fantastic... and before anyone starts about not receiving, high postage or not good quality CD's... lies all of it lies...

    I'm a seller myself! (all my own CD's saving for uni! - well since i got me iPod)
