Anyone have any dealings with this company and would like to comment?

Quality of product and ordering processing.

Thanks,

Funny you should ask.... I bought a DVD Oct 4 and haven't seen it yet. No response to messages.

Read the reviews on this site:

http://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.jubileedvds.com

They are not good. Apparently Zeus is the latest reincarnation of Jubilee DVDs, Queensbury DVDs, and Xerxes DVDs, all of which closed shop when the number of irate customers who received nothing grew too high. Caveat emptor.

I'm not surprised--whenever you deal with pirates, you eventually "walk the plank" and lose.

Virtually ALL obscure titles sold by pirate vendors are in varying degrees of garbage video quality not worth the price of a blank disc. I've seen lots of these over the years from both online sellers and dealers at movie conventions. It is the rare exception to get anything of clean sharp quality like the many major legit distributors sell.

On 10/21/2015--a few days before this blog began---I had ordered 3 dvds from Zeus. A week after I ordered them, I was notified that they had shipped. On 11/20/2015, the dvds finally arrived. All the dvds that I ordered were very rare--Zeus was like the last resort. Ok--they weren't of the greatest quality--but I'm just glad to be able to see them. Yes, I would order from them again.

I ordered a rare film from them (without checking threads like this first), then got nervous when I did read this. It took a month, but it did arrive and was fine quality - a movie I couldn't find anywhere else. So I have to give them credit. He does say that he's a one-man operation and it takes him a little longer to get things out.

First post--I've been quite happy with what I've ordered from Zeus, although it does take a while for items to arrive.

Would, however, recommend not ordering during his Black Friday sales--apparently he can get so swamped that orders can go astray/unfulfilled as a result. Service at all other times is just fine from my perspective.

I ordered some dvds from Zeus on 4/5/2018. I made the payment and I never heard any more from seller. I've sent several e-mails--but no response. I have finally given up!
