DVD arrived in perfect condition and ahead of the stated delivery date. Price was not too bad, considering that the price of DVD's is going down with the greater availability of the blue ray format. On the other hand, this pariticular movie is not easily available and, so far, is not available in the blue ray format. Still very happy with the purchase. Thanks.
