    I have put off buying the Lion King until i know which is better, usually id go for region 1 cos of PAL speedup but ive decided to wait to see if DTS adds anything to Lion Kings mix.

    Go with the R2 for Lion King. DTS. Nuff said :D

    Go with the R1 for 2 Fast 2 Furious. The R2 was cut by the BBFC.

    I think it's called the grass in greener on the other side syndrome, us Brits suffer more than most countries with this affliction for some reason. The only real downside to some R2 discs is the self-righteous editing by the do-gooders in the BBFC.

    Hi,

    I have ordered Lion King R,1 but that is from reading the review on this forum and taking what it said of the sound being so good.

    This respecting whovever did that review knowing what they are talking about and being honest and not selling dvd from the company who supplied the disc.

    If the sound is as good as the review said I cant see even"dts" being noticably any better. Buying it was nothing to do ,for me with the grass being greener on the other side.

    Cheers,
    Phill

    "Grass is greener" haaaa its got a lot more to do with the fact that i think PAL speedup is a major problem, compatibility issues which will afflict the discs should i buy Pal and upgrade my equipment to progessive gear further down the line and packaging can be so much nicer on region 1 discs.
