Tapes in the UK?

Hello,

As a newbie to both DV and the UK, I was wondering if anyone who isn't could let me know of a good place/website to buy tapes online (I'm using Sony Premium miniDV tapes). I'm not very familiar with the online shops in the UK and don't want to get dinged with import charges by using a non-UK shop. I'm aware of Jessops but would appreciate any other suggestions.

Thanks,
- M

Excellent! Thank you Grazie!

... but still! Really?! C'mon! (sorry, it just looks too good to be true!)

So the tapes at Price Busters - the 'SONY DVM 60 @ 1.89' tapes - are the same as the tapes here (ignoring the quantities): http://tinyurl.com/48ftc ?!

It just seems unreal to me!

Yup! In fact that IS the older packaging . . the latest is a nice Golden Yellow. I buy from there . .have been for the past . . er . . 2 years . . no problems - 1.89! Jessops want 6.66? Nonsense! . . . I can buy 1 or 10 or 100. Good init? - Others have used them hereabouts . .. ask a question, don't take my experience for it!

Grazie
