The easiest way to find the best price.

Advantages: Compares more retailers, easy to use.
I came across this site well over a year a go, I used to normally purchase my DVD's from Play.com until I found out they are not always the cheapest and found it slow and useless using the more well known price comparison sites like Kelkoo and Pricerunner. These didnt compare enough stores.
So I was very pleased to hear about www.find-dvd.co.uk, which is now saved in my favorites. The website lists different catergories such as box sets chart releases and then also lists them in catergory of film. But the easiest is to just type the film title and hit search. It quickly brings up the title and similar titled films and some basic information about the film together with the recommended retail price and lowest price. So you can instantly see what price you can get it for before seeing which store it is, you then simply click on the correct film and it brings a list up of around 40 retailers together with price the postage cost and the total cost and availability.
You dont always get prices from everyone this depends on the film you search for, a chart film usually gives you about 20 retailers prices - which is enough and more than other comparison sites. It doesnt overcomplicate the results with loads of marketing and links it presents the results in an easy to read list and you can see them all on one screen.
Why the website is not as good as it used to be - Find-dvd.co.uk also compare book prices, CD's games and electrical goods. On the old website simple tabs across the top used to let you easily switch between the type of search, now however they have seperate websites for each and the link for these sites is at the bottom left of the DVD website so its not as easy as before .
It has a price watch feature which once you register allows you to list the DVD(S) you want and the target price you want for them, and they e-mail you when its at that price.
Summary: A website you should always check first before buying a DVD, CD, Book or Game
