Hello, I would just like to start a discussion on production quality of DVD. Over the years, I have noticed that it has been more and more difficult to get a prefectly "scratchless" DVD. I am talking about new DVDs(first hand). There are always some scratches or markings on it. I had a bad experience with LORT(R2), both the original and extended version. I bought it in HMV. The 1st disc was scratched. I bought it bad to HMV and asked for an exchange. They agreed to it. However, when I examined the new disc, it was scratched as well. So was the third, fourth, fifth... that I tried. At the end, I just gave up and asked for the refund. I was luckly with the extended version as I was allowed to choose from all of the disc that they had and mixed and matched to come out with one combination that I was happy with it. I had gone through all of their disc and nearly none of them were scratchless. Disc 1, 2 and 4 were particularly affected. At the end I managed to come out with one though disc 2 was lightly scratched. I had to exchange twice to get a scratchless Moulin Rouge(R2), twice for Atlantis collector edition(R2), Once for Hunchback of the Notre Dame(R2), once for Minority Report (R2) , once for Planet of the Apes(R2) and the list goes on.
