I'll make copies (always on name brand video tapes) at SP speed unless you request another speed, and ship via Priority Mail with a U.S. Postal Service Delivery Confirmation receipt (the extra $0.35 lets you track the package, well worth it). You can reach me at jsmilla@yahoo.com orrevive_the_drive@yahoo.com. My ratings generally follow Rob Del Mundo's grading format.

Happy trading! --Josh
