    Hi all

    At present dvd compare recommend the R1 of this title

    http://dvdcompare.net/comparisons/film_results_page.php?fid=4557


    Im confused at to which version to go for :

    Play.com advertise the region 2 :
    Schindler's List - Special Edition Box Set
    http://www.play.com/play247.asp?page=title&r=R2&title=156456&p=57&c=&g=72

    and,

    Playusa.com advertise the region 1 :
    Schindler's List (Collector's Gift Set)
    http://www.playusa.com/playusa.asp?page=title&r=R1&title=149342


    Which is the best version to go for?
    and
    Where would be the best place to buy the region 1 version to
    avoid import duties and taxes.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Cya,
    Shaz

    Well if you get the Region 1 Giftset from PlayUSA you will no doubt be hit with Customs Charges but then again the only other place I know of which wont give you custom charges is Movietyme and they want £49.99 for the set.

    dvdboxoffice.com want ~£37 for the R1 gift set, and you won't get hit by customs with them.

    Oh... they also have the 2-disc Master and Commander for ~£18... playusa.com want £24.99!!

    It's hit and miss with the french covers... some have them and some don't.

    Bit annoying but I can live with it... if they had any sense, they would put english on side and french on the reverse. Though I don't think Schindler's List will be dual language thankfully (box sets generally aren't)! :smashin:

    Hi all

    Over the past couple of days Ive had a look at the dvd
    specification of this title and it seems on the subtitles sections
    they all differ!

    Last year I made the mistake of buying the region 1 of
    band of brothers and found that it didnt have any
    english subtitles. I had to ebay it and get the Korean Military
    edition. I dont want to make the same mistake with this title,
    playusa.com states it does have english subtitles.and
    dvdboxoffice.com & www.movietyme.com says it doesn't.

    Which product description is accurate?

    Pls check the following links:


    http://www.playusa.com/playusa.asp?page=title&r=R1&title=149342


    http://dvdboxoffice.com/description...=MAIN&s=gg&rate=GBP++-2.4200++++&pid=90051583



    http://www.movietyme.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=18894


    This is getting so confusing! :(

    Cheers,
    Shaz

    Play Customs Charges???

    Right, I think I've sussed out whats going on... When I add Master & Commander to the basket on Play, no problems, when I add the 2 disc special edition to the basket I get a warning stating that I might get charges, so presumably this is the customs charges your refering to... Why is it that some discs attract this message and others don't?

    Sorry if it's a simple question asked many times before...

    Edited to say: meant PlayUSA

    If its over £18 then i believe customs can charge extra if it's under they cannot, unless you fill in a form stating its a gift from someone or to someone then you are allowed upto £35.
