I recently did a large order direct from 20th Century Fox. A number of the discs were scratched, though sealed in factory packaging with the plastic strip & not loose in the case. They are all factory pressed, & as I ordered from the Fox web site, not counterfeits. I have come to the obvious conclusion that they were resealed customer returns. I am deciding which titles to return (this is a big pain).
I’m going to post scans below of the worst of the bunch. Assuming that they play all the way through now (the really bad one with a score of “5” does not play through), Does anyone know if the other 4 are likely to deteriorate farther over time? All the discs scanned poorly, but these are the 5 worst. I haven’t played the other 4 yet.
