    Hi

    Been looking to buy the fast and the furious.
    I take it that region 1 will be the best version (less subtitles than region 2 = higher audio bitrate, etc...). Is this true? :confused:

    Abother thing is that most online dealers state that 2/1/2002 is the release date for region 1. But i have found at ringos.co.uk, that they have it from 17th December, albeit £18, while other dealers are a few quid cheaper. I don't understand how they can get it earlier? I have never used ringos, so i don't know what they are like.

    Ermmm..... can someone explain this please? :confused:

    thanks.

    I checked my order status on Play247.com and it was posted last night despite the supposed 02/01/02 release date so it looks like everyones getting it early!I must say that despite the problems others have had with Play,the service I have received of late has been top notch!

    According to DVDFILE.com the disc is absolutely reference standard (both audio and video) and is destined to become the new demo disc for many a home cinema.I can't wait to get this dvd!
    :)

    Play have indeed posted some copies of Fast and Furious ( mine included ) but according to sources on the net they did not have enough stock to fulifil all orders.

    RINGOS and MOVIETYME have also dispatched there orderes

    Sod´s law!!

    Would have been nice to have it for Christmas:)

    I pre-ordered the disc as soon as it appeared on their lists.

    Obviously loads of others did the same!

    If it's better than Jurassic Park 3, then it must be worth waiting for.

    F and T F came this morning. Just watched it and have to agree this DVD is first class. The sound track quality is one of the best Ive heard and the picture is pretty perfect too. 10/10 all round.

    Ordered from Future Ent.com for £15.99

    Sweet! Got it Xmas Eve, how cool is that! So much for the january 2002 release date! What a great dvd! Perfect sound and great quality video. The film is ok, but who cares, i bought it for the girls and the cars!

    Hadn't used future ent before, but am pleased with them. So much for getting any presents wrapped before xmas!

    :D
