Where do I start. I ordered loads of products from this site and I have always got my items. I've spent hundreds and have recommended it to my 7 year old daughter who was looking to spend £50 birthday money. She placed her order only to be told the comapany went into liquidation. (read more)

I am also wondering whether Blah is just Splash trading under a different name. It seems funny that they are in Jersey and the contact details are a PO Box address. Also the fact that I haven't logged my details with any other company on the Internet but get an email from Blah. Where did they get my details from? Very suspect! (read more)

Splash DVD - I was wondering if anyone else has noticed a new online shop called 'Blah'. They are situated in Jersey. I can't help thinking that this company is Splash DVD under a different name. Does anyone know anything about this company. It would be interesting to find out if it is connected in some way to Splash. (read more)

Its companies like Splash that shake your faith in internet shopping. I ordered 3 CDs and waited 7 weeks for delivery, only to find they'd gone into liquidation and I wouldn't get a refund.
What a con! They must be laughing all the way to the bank. What goes round, comes round though!! (read more)

What a bad company to do business with Splash DVD are.

Rang back a week later only to be told they're now out of stock.
No refund, now gone bust.

Splash DVD has been LIQUIDATED - this company ceases to exist as of 9th March - whilst that's good news for all internet customers - it's unlikely that people waiting for a refund or goods will ever get a penny back. Most money in these cases goes straight to the banks and debt recovery offices.
Just for your interest, 22,000 customers are still waiting a refund or product !!! (read more)

I ordered an item from Splash DVD that turned out to be faulty. Returned it by recorded delivery on 31/01/2003. They signed for it on 05/02/2004. Took me until end of February to get my refund. However, they didn't pay the postage back to them as they denied having received the item back. Recorded delivery apparently meant something different to them. It would have cost me £2 to get a copy of the signature, which I almost did on principle. Luckily, Jersey Trading Standards took the matter up... (read more)

I ordered some DVD's off MVC a while back. One of the DVD's was not available at the time but they sent the others very quickly and only charged me for the ones they despatched. They only charged me for the remaining DVD when it was ready to despatch. Why couldn't SPLASH do that?

Splash DVD - Whilst I was bored at uni one day I thought it would be a good idea to compare prices for a rare dvd that I wanted and a cd as a gift for somebody.

I have ordered quite a few dvd's from Splash. On the whole I have had few problems, though when it does go wrong, it is like many other reviewers on this site say - appalling.
The main problem seems to be with 'out of stock' items.
