    Default Blu-Ray Disc

    Hi,

    Was shopping for BR disc and came across some shops selling them at $19.90.

    However, the packaging is like those Code 6 DVD.

    Anyone had experience watching it ? How's the quality (sound & audio) ?

    Thanks

    what title? Chinese or English movie?

    buy from amazon, it is DAMN cheap. less than $9 you can get good blue ray discs(DD-true HD, DTS, 1080p).

    buy more so you can save the shipment.

    hmm, so the $19.90 ones are pressed in PRC ...

    I guess it is "you get what you paid for"

    Thanks bro, for the additional info.

    So far I bought 2 only. GI Joe - $59.50, and Blood - The last vampire - $49.90.

    Dare not try those pressed in PRC. That's why asking for opinions here

    If buy from Amazon, will it be detain at custom for censorship ?

    The cheapest Blu ray disc are @ $39.90 so those that you paid for @ $19.90
    are most probably DVDs disguise as Blu ray don't be taken in.

    Quite a number of Blu ray discs are locally pressed as some titles are launched earlier
    in Asia before it's US releases.Not to say their PQ & AQ are inferior but I personally
    prefer US releases.

    Hi Zeisser,

    I did not buy those at $19.90

    The 2 that I had at the moment cost almost $110

    Thanks for the info on the DVDs disguising as Blu Rays
