Why do you buy orig?
« on: Jun 12, 2003 at 12:35 PM »
That question has been asked to me a lot of times. How about you? Why do you buy orig when there's pirated DVDs going for a tenth of the cost?

Mods: If there's a duplicate thread just merge this na lang. TY!

pirated discs are not a viable option as they have to been as a cheap imitation of the real thing. as with fakes, even if they look original; you can't shake the feeling that's somethings missing. in the case of pdvds, this comes at the expense of the video, audio quality which are compressed and special features that are eliminated.

In terms of audio and video qualities, is there a difference with pDVD9s? (pDVD5s obviously have lower audio and video qualties). And is it true nakakasira daw ng player ang pirated DVDs?

Because the people who made these movies deserve to be paid for their efforts, just like any single person on this board who goes to work in the morning expect to get paid.

They work hard to bring this product to you and for me to NOT buy orig it means I would be robbing these people of their intellectual property and their right to make a living.

I started in April 2001 with pirated discs.  Back then, p-discs were bit-perfect replicas of the real thing.  In fact, wala pa ngang mga dvd-5 noon.  Would you believe, may mga insert pa? - talo pa nga ang Viva!

As expected, the quality of subsequently-released pirated titles quickly deteriorated.  Lahat na ng klase ng depekto makikita mo sa mga japeyks: madilim ang video, severe pixellation, out-of-sync ang audio, humihina ang audio during scenes where the sound should be much louder (e.g.: explosions), sobrang lakas (distorted) ang LFE, skipping, hanging, etc., etc., etc.,  ad nauseam.

Sabi ng vendor, papalitan pag may sira.  Kaya lang, magsasawa ka naman kakapalit at kakapabalik-balik.  Bakit nga ba hindi, e sira din yung binibigay na kapalit.  Minsan nga, nakabili ako ng defective disc sa Greenhills; nang bumalik ako para magpapalit, wala na yung binilhan ko!  

Sa sobrang buwiset, original na lang ang binibili ko.  Walang problema.  May delivery pa sa mga R1 (suki ako ni Parc).

 1. because of the glamore that it  brings.
 2. audio and video quality (only for those with HT setup)
 3. to protect legitimate businesses (astrovision) :P

I guess because it's the only thing available where I'm at.
But then again, I would only want origs because just like other things, you get what you pay for...  ;)

Same thing here. Minsan napaka-brittle ng case ng pirated DVDs. Minsan naman mali-mali yung synposis nung film. As with the original, me kasama pang scene index list whereas wala nun sa P-DVD.  :)

Well, you can just be very picky with the titles to buy and for rent only because of the price when you buy orig.  Just look at your collection if you have halo na orig and pirated.  Parang gusto mong tanggalin at itago ang pirated at dapat ang mga nakikita lang eh mga orig.  

If you buy pirated, since madami kang nabibili, problem is storing them.  Minsan nga sa sobrang mura eh gusto ko lang panooring at itapon na para hindi magcluclutter at maging space occupying.  Anyway, it is nothing to be proud of and for display.

And....buying orig is the right thing to do.  If you want to watch lang naman, you do not have to buy....just rent it out.

 ;D ;D ;D

Another important question is why not buy the fake ones?

Simple.  I don't buy the fake ones kasi, I like my DVD clear and crisps in terms of videa and audio.  I don't like the missing features.  I hate the wrong subtitles provided in fake DVDs and lastly I don't support Piracy coz I'm no pirate!  

Why settle for less when you can buy the orig at a sale price!  ;)

Maybe its always that way when you consider the price of an original DVD from the pirated. But then, for me buying original DVDs can always take the backseat if I'm getting financially short--and I have two mouths to feed.

Toti-  Hindi naman.  One of the problems with collecting DVDs is storage.  And mahirap din magtago ng mga gamit na walang resale value.  Yung orig DVDs pwede mo pang ibenta in the future....

That's just me though

Buying original dvds are like investment in the future.
 
While pirated discs you can just scatter it around in your house and wala value after you watch it.

And Nirvblakr is right! Mahirap itago and when you display it with the ORIGS, ang laki ng difference, parang may inferiority complex or racial discrimination.

For the sheer joy of having the orig copies of the movies you truly love.So when you are asked by anybody what movie you love best, you can,a after identifying it,  easily  say that" i have a copy of that!".

For me, it must be the Video encoding.  At least I know I'm getting the best possible video quality for that movie, pdiscs, kasi tend to lower the video encoding so that it would fit on a DVD-5.  And of course DTS/DD titles, on Pdiscs usually takeout one audio track to fit into the DVD-5.  

Original the best, Quality, Complete features, Value for Money, and of course integrity.

Quality? I think there's no diff between the orig and the peyk except on DTS coded discs - parang hindi kuha completely ng peyk ang DTS coding... that's why I buy orig!!!

Quality of Audio and Video - most of the pirated DVDs being sold only have single layer disc which means they downgrade the quality of both audio and video.  

Another thing is the special features and lastly the packaging and inserts.
