Default The Warner Archive Collection

Hi,

Hope this is the right place. Have any members here bought any of the Warner Archive Collection on-demand DVD-R's. Comments on the quality of the release - including the artwork/disc - would be useful as there's a few titles I'd be interested in.

I see they're releasing Ltd Ed Blu Ray 'On Demand' titles too, come Feb. Quite excited to see what's coming.

My two cents athough it won't count for much - I haven't pick up any on-demand discs but I've heard only bad things about them - people receiving discs that were scratched and unplayable. In general I think a burned DVD has a much shorter shelf-life than a pressed-on DVD, and despite some fascinating titles made available (Green Slime, Savage Mesiah, Carny) I've never been confident enough to pick up any. The prices are expensive too...

Here's a link that might be worth reading (and not as pessimistic as my thoughts above)

Ah, interesting link - thanks. I didn't want to fork out full price for something so so, and the fact they're burned does put me off. It's a shame they can't offer a much lower price. Also, the Warner Bros site direct doesn't seem to ship internationally - so it's Amazon or nothing.

Pah.

Don't know where Wes heard that,but it's total bollocks.
I have over 40 of these and they're all fine.
FAR superior to their vhs counterparts.

I've had good experiences and heard good things from my mate who buys loads.
BUT I think they're seriously overpriced.

They are overpriced Bruno for what they are,but as this is the only way to see some classics,it's worth it.

Most of them are available from Amazon UK for 10-12.

40? Jesus. Is the Amazon warehouse based in your living room, reaps?

You haven't got any for sale or trade by any chance?
