ymmv

Basically I think everyone's mileage is going to vary depending on their particular equipment. I mean, Jason, I totally believe you saw what you said you saw on the check discs; and I also believe those who are seeing things in a more pronounced fashion on their own equipment. For those whose equipm...

banding

Got my discs on Sat. from DDD and have watched the first five episodes so far. The banding on these discs is pretty horrible. I've seen the "music staff" that people have mentioned--seems to be banding coming off of the bright highlights on the hallway lockers. It's apparent in many other scenes too...

me too

I got my DDD delivery on Saturday as well. (I paid for priority mail.) Have watched the first five episodes so far. The quality of these DVDs is disappointing, but it's easy to overlook/ignore as the show, like, totally draws you in.

Man, this show is amazing.

sticking it out

Thanks for the (mostly) positive encouragement to hang in there with the DVD order. I agree wholeheartedly about the VHS deterioration factor... I'm in the process of converting my family VHS home movies to DVD for that very reason. (I've considered just converting my VHS MSCL tapes as well, but I'm...

comparison...

Question for those who have the original 3 episode DVD and the new box set: Would you say the quality of the new set is better, worse, or roughly the same as that of the original 3 episode DVD? Thanks. Answers relative to the first disc will give me a point of reference. I ask only because I may can...

Howard, thanks for the posting the links to those stories/messageboards. I've been told that if you have nothing nice to say about someone (RR, in this case), then don't say anything at all. So I'll keep my trap shut about his statements on that board. But best of luck with the garnishment in Sacram...

bonus disc-go-round

I mentioned this a while back but thought I'd bring it up again given this topic. If you want to take the copyright questions out of the equation, why not just set up a list of people interested in seeing the bonus disc and then mail an original bonus disc to the first person on the list? That perso...

Re: Did you use visa or debit?

Hey there Smackey - just outta curiosity, did you use an actual Visa or a debit card (check card) with the Visa logo on it? Actually I used a Bank of America Mastercard (a credit card... not a debit card). But judging from Andrewgd's post above, the same should hold true for either credit or debit....

Don't be afraid to cancel.

This is for credit card orderers sticking it out with AU for fear they'll never get a refund if they cancel. Dispute the charges with your credit card company! You never got the product and, as many on this board have proven, you can get a credit back from your credit card company. If you're staying...

made the switch

I too made the switch from Amazon to Deep Discount DVD. Honestly, ever since I washed my hands of AU, learned my bank was getting me all of my money back, and placed an order with Amazon, my life has become too safe, too boring. I needed to reinject some more chance and adventure into the mix, so I ...

nevermind

You can disregard the above post. I went ahead and ordered, and hopefully I successfully "shared the love" with all outstanding posters in that thread. For those scoring at home: Shipping estimate: November 25, 2002 Delivery estimate: November 30, 2002 - December 2, 2002 (I took the free shipping)
