guys theirs an ebay seller who I bought some films off, the packaging was GREAT... but im not sure as to whether the dvd's are origionals or not.

He says that he doesn't sell pirates, but the image quality was not what I'd expect from an origional.

Anyone know whether they are real or dodgey?

and am I allowed to post ebay links???

for reference only...

if im not I shall remove - feedback wise he has very good feedback.

the discs are sliver - an they are thai/jap etc...

but im just dont think their origionals... I've had discs from asia that are origionals.

the sounds good on them.... hmmmm...may have to have a little deeper dig...

I know how much silvers go for as I have seen them... These have dvd9 marked on them as well.

Look at the audio settings for "The Island"... "English - Dolby Digital (2.0) Stereo"

Now its a garbage film with a great accent by our own Ewan McGregor however the sound is in DD 5.1 !!!

Ship ahoy I would say.

I don't think Red Eye (Wes Craven ver) has appeared on DVD though with a DTS soundtrack. I could be wrong, but my R2 isn't and the R1 wasn't either.

Having looked at his Doom "Cover art may vary" I'd say not quite legit, but then as the saying goes, if it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck........

Oh I know that :) The point was that you can find DTS versions of Star Wars if you REALLY wanted - but we know that they aren't authentic.

If this were the case, put me down for a copy of The Matrix in DTS, because we know it exists from the end credits, but WB still haven't released one!! :)

I can't find a proper release of Red Eye with DTS, so it's fair to say that it's similar to the aforementioned Star Wars.

Mind you, with one very specific exception where I did (and it is legit), I wouldn't buy DVD's from ebay ever.

There are 4 things I would check...

1. - does it have a holographic DVD9 logo on the sleeve

2. - does it have a DTS banner along the top of the sleeve

3. - what file size does it read when put in a computer

4. - is it region locked?

Some bootleg dvds are dual layered so question 3 might be pointless but the rest are a sure fire way of checking whether you have a legit release or a factory pressed bootleg.

HI,

The fact that this guy is advertising the option to buy films that aren't even legally out in the USA on DVD (or are only just about to open in UK cinemas in the next few weeks) suggests that this guy is absolutely a pirate!

Don't risk your money on these :censored: -wits! :mad:

Report him to ebay. Ask for a refund , and start a chargeback.
as Indiana said, have you checked the region coding?
Blatantly fakes
