Want to be 99% sure you are buying 100% original DVD's?
I have found that if you buy DVD's off ebay, some sellers can rip you off by sending you a pirate copy, a poor quality import or a home made copy and not the real thing.
Here is a quick guide to help you pick a legal DVD.
- English Region 2 DVD's have an age resriction on them (U, Uc, PG, 12, 15, or 18).
- Always check on the Region. If it says Region 2 then you should get a Region 2 DVD. (Some multi region discs are OK, check on a DVD site).
- Look at the photo. If there is a picture of the DVD and not a stock photo you should be OK. (Some people do not have cameras so they have to use stock photos).
- Always check the sellers feedback. If, after looking at the feedback and there are negatives for selling fake DVD's, there is a chance it's a bootleg so do not buy. (Be wary of malicious feedback).
- If the person selling the DVD has had feedback for selling fake ones, then steer clear.
- If a seller is selling a new film very cheap or the film is yet to be released then chances are it's not legitimate.
- If the seller has loads of positive feedback for selling original DVD's then you should be OK.
- If at all unsure then ask the seller.
- If you are still unsure, use your common sense.
If you use all or a combination of the above tips then you should be a happy buyer who, if you choose, will be able to sell on your authentic original DVD after you have watched it.
I hope this guide helps you buy only original DVD's.
