    Hi guys,
    I came across this seller on yahoo auctions(uk) and thought you might like a look.He has over 260 titles on sale 98% for just £10.
    I found out the seller is based in malaysia and all the titles are new and sealed region 2 discs.
    The sellers i.d is auction-dvd so take a look and let me know what you think...
    happy hunting, p.:p

    Be carefull. I don't want to accuse the seller of anything but in Malaysia a lot of counterfeit R0 copies are sold for less than GBP4, so ....

    And it's of course not me selling those ... [​IMG]

    The minute he said auctions and Malaysia, the first thought that came into my mind was DVD silvers.

    Although i took a look at the list of auctions and i didnt spot any which could be obvious pirate copies and they appear to be genuine R2 DVDs.

    Personally, without prejudice, i would avoid using him. Looking at the responses, it appears that the price does not include P&P and are despatched from Malaysia. This would make most of them more expensive than the reputable online retailers (in either R2 or R1 form).

    Hey guys,
    I took another look at the disc covers and noticed some subtle differences in them.
    The most noticable being blade,which has a totally different cover from the one released in this region.
    As for the post and packaging from what i could gather it was included in the price.
    I'm unfamiliar with the term "silver discs", do you mean pirate copys?
    Also the posts on the seller seem to be ok....
    I might send for a copy of the fifth element and let you guys know how it go's.
    bye for now:clown:

    DVD silvers is a term used for pirate DVDs.

    So, it could be possible that he is using copied dvds with home produced covers.

    Take a look at the cover you have and see if it matches the r1 version. If it does, i would guess it is a copy.

    The information on the dvds says that P&P is to be paid by the purchaser.
