An excellent all round website

Advantages: Looks great, some excellent products
Disadvantages: Not the widest choice on the net
Play.com is one of the first websites I visit for all of my music, dvd and book needs, in many ways it is a cooler, geekier version of Amazon, but with less choice and occasional cheaper prices.
How does the website look:
Overall its pretty good looking, It has the Play.com icon on the top right of each page, good navigation to other pages and a nice combination of orange and blue visuals with good photographs.
What do they sell:
Primarily they sell dvd's, games, cd's and PC peripherals, they also sell t-shirts, tickets to gigs, books and mobile phones and this is a big expansion from a year ago so who knows what they'll sell in a year.
Generally these are on a par with Amazon and other competitors, occasionally they have cheaper items and have good sales so it is worth checking on here before buying. Ticket prices are in line with Ticketmaster whilst the mobiles are a bit more expensive than buying from the mobile providers.
Free delivery is a definite plus and they are fast in responding to customer queries if items don't arrive, overall i've never had an issue with the site and would definitely recommend it.
Whats better than Amazon:
It looks good, some of the sales are real sales and provide excellent bargains, there are some lovely quirky little items and it has excellent customer service on an easy to use site.
Whats worse than Amazon:
It doesn't have the same range of products and some prices are a bit dodgy at times, overall its a great competitor and worth checking out to compare prices, I use it as well as Amazon and find it better for tickets, toys, gadgets and quirky clothing ,while amazon is better for DVD's, books, and everything else.
Overall an excellent site, which has few flaws and is really well put together.
Summary: An excellent all round website
