I am dead serious. You pay money for an original DVD and they stick it on some cheapass manufactured DVD that degrades faster than a G05. This has happened too many times for me to have any trust in pressed DVDs. I know my verbatim MCC02RG20 and MCC004 are never going to degrade this bad, if at all!
What’s the point of buying a boxset of something you like only to have it degrade after warranty has run out or receipts are lost. It’s like you are paying to own something that you have to copy multiple times on recorded media just in case it dies or is already dead out the box. What’s the point of owning an original that doesn’t work!?! Oh yeah I had to watch my favorite TV show on backed up media with reduced quality because my originals just decided to die for no reason! Awesome.
I’ve also had heaps of original dvds with unreadable spots and some that don’t even read right out of the box. What a joke.
This is bloody ridiculous. Are they asking people to pirate things? I am so reluctant right now to buy anything because I fear my hard earned money is going to degrade into oblivion. FFS and they have the nerve to try putting all these protections and BS on the stuff we pay for! Piss off.
