I know this post will seem out of place, but I didn't seen HMV in the online section, so I'll post it here. This year, I had two orders with HMV Japan and they were very fast, very courteous, and decently priced.
Both orders were the new Genesis SACD/DVD box sets. I pre-ordered the first one back in January, and the newer one in August. The prices were just okay, but HMV Japan has this multi-buy discount that rocks. If you buy 3 or more "import" titles (imported for Japan), you get 25% off your total bill. Plus, with every order, you accumulate HMV Points, which can be accumulated, and used as a discount towards a future purchase. I ended up getting a fairly good price for my box sets, so I'm very happy.
Their speed is good too. I received an e-mail from them on Friday, telling me the order was ready to be shipped. And on Tuesday, it was in my hot little hands.
The only negative experience with them was that both times, the final shipping was higher than their initial estimate. Kind've a downer, but what can you do? But this negative was far overshadowed by their decent pricing and their fast delivery.
