“Blackstar gets 5 Goldstars.”

published 10/10/2001

Great discounts. Excellent service. Delivery times...

Can't think of any.

I am an avid fan of Star Trek Next Generation. I only really got into it about 2 years ago when a friend lent me some videos. Once I'd watched a few I was hooked and was delighted to hear that Paramount were re-releasing all the Next Generation episodes on Video. There are 8 videos per season and...

“Blackstar The Best”

Quick, cheap and excellent service

Being a busy hightflying executive I don't have time to wander round all the stores in town looking at prices. So after a hard day's grafting in the city I come home and surf...and go on the internet....I found Blackstar to be the best in the world. The reasons that I think this is simple.... 1...

dishonesty, hidden costs, lack of communication

There is one thing that really upsets me, when they let a good thing crumble and waste. I had been using Blackstar for an age (well in internet shopping years it is), it must be well over 2 years now. I was a loyal and regular shopper, I found it great for Christmas and gift shopping. I have...

“Just great!”

published 12/07/2000

I first found Blackstar quite by accident; I ordered a video tape from them and, months later, are still with them. On first visiting the site, I found it easy to navigate, with every possible title you could think of up for sale. What's more, if they haven't got it, they'll even hunt a copy down...

“Low prices and quickly”

published 13/07/2000

Quick and low prices

none

Blackstar.co.uk are very cheap. If you buy a video or dvd that has yet to be released they will give you an extra twenty percent off their already low prices. They also offer free postage which means that the price that you see on the item description is the only price you will pay, there are no...

“Blackstar is easy to use”

published 10/07/2001

Quick,easy to use,cheap

Games section weak

I first found this website about a year ago and since then I've probably bought about 75% of my video releases from there. Since then,the pricing has changed slightly to include the price of postage and packaging which initially makes the videos seem cheaper than they are, which I think is my...

“Not so cheap”

Extensive list of available movies.

Major movies are more expensive than big High Stre...

Online shopping is supposed to be a cheaper alternative to high street shopping. While this may be true in certain areas, mainly the book market, some online stores can actually be more expensive. Last year I pre-ordered Star Wars 'Phantom Menace' from www.blackstar.co.uk and it arrived the day...

“Video Amnesty”

published 06/08/2000

Fast, Efficient, Good availability

Blackstar are simply FANTASTIC. I ordered from them as they stocked a video I could not find anywhere else and have not looked back since. They have excellent customer service. When submitting a query e-mail to them, they respond very quickly and in a very cheery and helpful manner - even on a...

“Simply the Best!”

published 05/08/2000

Everything!

None that I've found.

I found Blackstar through a price comparing site. At first I was concerned that low prices might mean low quality service, but I couldn't have been more wrong. I now buy all my videos at Blackstar. Not only are they cheap, but unlike many othere internet shopping sites they don't charge a...

High Prices On New Releases

I first came across this site way back in the dark dark ages of the 20th Century somewhere in the region of 1998/99. I was desperately trying to find a video that had become obsolete in the UK and I was often seen in pawn shops or video shops looking through their old video selections trying to...

Brilliant search engine on the latest DVD's

Blackstar (www.blackstar.co.uk) are the undisputed champions of online video sales – and it’s not hard to see why. Everything about the site is user friendly: navigation is simplicity itself, prices are competitive and the ordering simple and safe. Whereas Amazon sells DVD’s as...

“A REAL ONLINE STAR”

published 30/09/2003

Good service

Prices can be beaten

When looking to buy CD’s and DVD’s online my usual choices are CdWow and occasionally if the price is right DVD.co.uk but I’m always prepared to give others a go and with this in mind over the last few months I’ve used Blackstar.co.uk quite a lot and I thought it was about time to do a review on...

“A solid company”

published 26/01/2002

If you purchase something you'll get it

not really cheap

What's about? ------------- I'm sure you know about blackstar, but anyway I'll try to give a general description. Blackstar.co.uk is an online store. They sell Dvd's and Vhs. It was originally done to sell VHS online, but times are changing and DVD is getting the big part of the video pie...

Good selection, good customer support

Higher, less clear prices than before

I have been a loyal customer of blackstar for almost a year and I have to say I have been very happy with it. I've ordered several items from them and they've all arrived promptly and usually in good condition (once a videotape arrived with a slight break in the case but the videotape itself was...

“Starry Site”

published 03/05/2002

good selection, quick delivery

none

This is a great site for buying DVD's and videos. I first heard of them when looking on the dooyoo rewards page. On the homepage, you are greeted by a very colourful homepage, of flashing banners and titles like we recommend which are films recommended by the website, mostly new releases. They...
