    Could you guys explain something to me please.
    First off, what's the difference between THIS and THIS.
    How much does this set tend to go for on the forums?
    I know the score with region codes, but what is region 0?
    Are there any obvious ways of telling what is a bootleg/copy etc.
    I really fancy getting into the quality imports, but I am a bit wary of paying
    money for dodgy gear.
    Hope you can all steer me in the right direction.

    Thank you.

    Johnny.

    Region 0 allows the dvd to be played in any region. Cd-wow sell quite a few of these (they are not bootleg).

    well - the obvious difference is that one set is korean and the other is from hong kong.


    also you may wish to consider buying from elsewhere

    for example - buying from hkfix for $99 and with shipping to be added on and the possible risk of customs and will cost a hell of a lot.

    or - you can just buy it from cdwow for £52 http://www5.cd-wow.com/detail_results_2.php?product_code=16370

    Sorry mate, I wasn't really clear. Is there any benefit from buying
    Korean over HK and vice versa?

    Johnny.

    The print quality can vary between the two but there really is no generalisation as to which is better overall.

    Determining which print is better is more film specific than anything else.
