    I wouldn't mind getting a copy of The Infernal Affairs box set but I can't justify that much money for it.

    It's nice to have fancy packaging but generally I can't justify the extra expense, I'd much rather have another DVD or two.

    true. I only have 3 special sets -
    House of Flying Daggers LE
    Zatouchi CE
    Oldboy UE (still to be delivered) :(

    I would only justify the extra cost if there is extreme limited availability and I loved the film. In addition if there is a marked improvement in PQ/SQ.

    I only have what I would call four special sets, all Japanese DVDs, and only two of them are reasonably limited. One was purchased for being uncut and the other three were for DTS. However to be perfectly honest I would be more than content just buying General releases that meet my specifications from Hong Kong, Korea or anywhere else in the world for around a tenner, since for me it's all about the film not owning something exclusive. I just want the best sound and picture, possibly a good few extras without paying through the nose .

    Sure I agree it's nice to have something limited and/or with fancy packaging but I think that is a two-edged sword. I'm starting to find it hard to find space to put all my regular DVDs and the last thing I need is larger more extravagant packaging taking up even more room. Another negative thing about limited edition releases is that if something happens to the DVD in transit, generally you can't just send it back to be replaced because a lot of these DVD packages sell-out before they are even released.


    I also got burned on a special limited edition release of Hero from China last year which has put me off the idea of limited editions quite a bit. It was a lovely box-set except the film had a logo that popped up every 10 minutes or so during film if you watch it with English subtitles. It was fine if you watched it would no subtitles. I don't know what those Chinese :censored: were thinking about!
