The seller has been asked to respond by Mar 13, 2015. Once we receive the information, we'll continue our review of this case.

Man, they really make people wait a long time. Seeing as it isn't even marked as SHIPPED, you'd think they could expedite the process.

I agree, it is a long time. Mine is the 12th, so another week. They are covering their bases, but I just want back my $21.99

Re: The Official AMAZON Marketplace / EBAY / HALF bargain thread

Ebay is pretty consumer friendly on refunds as long as their is no tracking # showing delivered. At that point, the way to go is "Not as described". Paypal's policy is the consumer always wins that one.

I'd rank LEGITIMATE return friendly (I think it is 100% wrong to lie on a return; most of the 3rd party sellers are little guys like us) as follows:

1. Amazon (they are so return friendly i won't sell on there; scammers are often rewarded
2. Ebay
(a very distant 3). half (they are not real return friendly).

So few people even sell on Half anymore. Most listings I see these days on Half are the handful of remaining Super D shops left that sell on every site.

Yeah, I even gave up selling on Half.com about a year ago. Once they started restricted anything and everything, it just wasn't worth my time (and I didn't make much money either).

Re: The Official AMAZON Marketplace / EBAY / HALF bargain thread

You sure you're not confusing Half and Amazon? The latter is the one with all the sales restrictions now. I only sell on the former now...and my inventory doesn't move nearly as fast, but the lower seller fees help to soften the blow.

It's sad & frightening, but I currently find ebay the most seller friendly of the big sites, & they're awful!

Re: The Official AMAZON Marketplace / EBAY / HALF bargain thread

Keep in mind 90% of the music was replaced in QL. Also, season 3 was a DVD-18 set. I couldn't get them to play on 3 different players.

Also, I think the Netflix version has the music intact. I'm not 100% certain on that though. Just finished season 1 and everything seemed like it was there.

Thanks. When I read this, I thought it was $13 EACH, but it's for ALL 5 seasons. http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...condition=used

Deep discount appears to be selling new copies of the 4 disc special edition of Magical Mystery Tour Deluxe Box Set (Blu-ray/DVD/double-vinyl EP) for $11.84 plus $3.99 shipping. It says there are 9 copies left.

I'm with you. A real mess of a film (I, too, am a fan).

One of the reviews says "no" in spite of the listing:

I ordered this set and THEN read the whole page where it stated this DVD/Blu-Ray set was for region 2 only and would not work in the U.S.A., tried to cancel it but it had already shipped. I requested a return anticipating it being useless to me. It arrived quickly and was such a nice looking set, I decided to try the disks anyway. Well when I inspected the Blu-Ray disk it clearly said ALL REGIONS and played fine, Same with the DVD. So that warning on the page is not correct...

^Thanks for the clarification BobO'Link. I didn't even notice this when I ordered my copy. I am a huge Beatles fan so I will take the chance. Hopefully the review you posted is correct.

The older film transfer is pretty bad, as seen in the screenshots:

The remastered music sounds great on both the Blu-ray and included EP.

Does the blu have a music only 96/24 section? I'm assuming the EP is vinyl?

^The listing indicates the EP is vinyl - a recreation of the original 7" double-EP release with 3 tracks on each disc.

No, there isn't an isolated music soundtrack. The two primary audio options are a brilliant 5.1 DTS-HD MA surround mix and 2.0 PCM stereo mix. Both are at 24-bit/96kHz.

It is a vinyl EP of very good quality, a nice pressing.

Re: The Official AMAZON Marketplace / EBAY / HALF bargain thread

Got my Magical Mystery Tour set in already!

Say what you want about the movie but this is an extremely nice set and worth it for any Beatles fan.
The BD says "All Regions" on it and the DVD states "NTSC" though I haven't had the chance to try either of them yet.

Nice case, book, vinyl eps with another booklet in them. Fucking cool man! Especially for the price!

Looks like it has a decent amount of extras on the BD as well.

*I watched the "movie" this morning and the BD played fine and is indeed all regions. Great music. Horrible film.
