DVD Prices

Techwire has a nice survey of the prices of some new DVD releases in Ireland (I presume Dublin). In each case they picked a TV box set or a new movie and went to different shops and online stores. The result? It's cheaper to shop online but even so it can really, REALLY, pay to shop around. Shops you consider expensive may be cheaper for an individual item.

For example for Lost the prices given on Techwire for two of the stores are
Tower Records - €90
HMV - €55
While the opposite pricing happens for 24 season 2
Tower Records - €45
HMV - €80

So as Mary Harney and Eddie Hobbs would say, shop around.
