Well I just got my CD (Weather Report - Mr. Gone
on Blu-Spec CD
) from CD Japan today. My other CD was out of print. Packaging was professional; CD arrived in pristine condition.
Here’s the breakdown….
The CD was $26.08 US (2381 Yin)
Shipping 3-5 days $17.28 US (1500 Yin) – Arrived 4 days after PayPal e-check clearance. Standard shipping would have been 1-3 weeks.
Total came to $42.35 (US) WOWSER!!!
So was it worth it? Well, I looked high and low for this CD. Everyone had it out of stock except Amazon.com where I originally ordered it ($36 dollars) only to have them tell me they were unable to get it. In the end sometimes you have to pay for what you want.
If you’re looking for hard to find items you might want to give CD Japan a try, however be warned that shipping can get expensive. You pretty much have to choose Express shipping if you want your item any time soon as standard shipping can take 1-3 weeks before you get the item. And that’s after the initial 3-5 days it takes CD Japan to ship the item!!! BTW… standard shipping is around $10.00 dollars so…
Other than that CD Japan was very professional in my dealings and the packaging is very well done to protect your items.
Would I deal with them again? Yes, but only on hard to find, can’t get it nowhere else, just have to have it items.
