    I never really had any problems BUT if you're buying actual media, ie cd's be aware that they often times subcontract out the sale to other sellers, so you could, in theory, have an issue. Although I haven't yet. (knock on wood)

    I buy from them all the time. But be warned they will send you emails with deals almost weekly and you'll have a hard time not buying up albums with their 100 albums for $5 specials.

    Make sure it's actually 320 though, I downloaded the Hospital mix by Danny Byrd, and it wasn't 320. If you're looking for cheap MP3's, try Tescoentertainment or HMVDigital.

    I always finds it's worth a quick search on a few sites in case I can get it cheaper elsewhere init.

    You may find the quality of older stuff lacking regardless of where you buy it. I believe most online "shops" have just upconverted their older MP3's from 192 to 320 as the demand has grown. If anyone comes across a site with older house and techno with high quality rips, I'd love to know about it.
