    Hi all

    I'm currently looking for all 10 seasons of Friends, and I've noticed on ebay that several people are selling Seasons 1-10 (60 discs) as original Asian products, at a snip of the price (circa £90 rather than £160).

    Does anyone know if these are genuine? Or are they pirates? And if they are genuine, has anyone bought a set? Just wonder how the quality holds up etc.

    Cheers
    Matt

    I'm also looking for all 10 series, so if anyone knows where I can obtain the cheapest legit version I'd be much appreciated!

    Seems from reading a post over @ the DVD forums, that these ones are indeed pirates. Cheapest I've found is £149.95 at Choices Direct...

    Asian DVDs on ebay are nearly all (if not all) pirates. A lot of the time with TV series there are sometimes episodes missing or in the wrong order. Some even have non removeable subtitles.

    It is best to avoid Asian DVD's wherever they are.

    Never trust anything on eBay marked as Genuine Asian release as it will just be the R1 or R2 release with reduced quality and added subtitles, I have read some are even missing parts of episodes, who would pay anything for something that is incomplete lol
