    Has anyone ordered this disc? I know everyone likes their demo discs and this seems good.

    Ultimate Widescreen DVD

    It sounds great value for $10 inc postage. It has 18 full bit rate DTS demos most of which I believe are from the official DTS demo discs. The movies are:

    Gladiator
    Chicken Run
    Courage Under Fire
    The Prince Of Egypt
    Titan A.E.
    American Beauty
    Pitch Black
    U-571
    Jurassic Park
    Jurassic Park 2
    Men In Black
    The Haunting
    Peter Frampton Live in Concert
    Galaxy Quest
    Saving Private Ryan
    Antz
    Small Soldiers
    The Peacemaker

    Along with reviews and stuff. Seems very cheap as the DTS Demo discs can fetch quite a lot themselves. I suppose Widescreen Review are a decent magazine in the US and a safe bet?

    But it says

    $4.95(US) shipped to continental US, $5.95(US) shipped to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico, $9.95(US) shipped to International addresses

    Maybe its late and I'm being dumb but am I missing something? It doesn't say you have to be a subscriber anywhere?

    I've got a copy and it is not worth it. The normal DTS demo discs are much better.

    This disc is basically a trailer DVD no more than that.

    Meh...isn't this basically a compilation of the DTS demo discs? And by that I mean the DTS demo disc 1 to 5 or whatever that have movie clips. In what way is it worse? They are all full bit rate, anamorphic etc

    Anyway for anyone who is still interested, I got a swift reply from Widescreen review so I'm quite impressed.

    "The cost for the DTS Disc is $9.95 for the disc and shipping. This disc would be mailed about two days after it is processed and mail first class airmail. You may order this disc with out being a subscriber to the magazine."

    Order away guys :smashin:
