Agreed, but then for this sale that's why I only bought Flight of Dragons, Starsky & Hutch, Year of the Dragon & Showdown in Little Tokyo on BD. Honestly, I'm spending more on other sales this week than anything on Amazon (where I've only bought Mortal Engines 4k because I wanted to use my $10 Whole Foods credit).

I placed a WB Shop order for blu-rays that had been sitting on my Amazon wishlist forever. The order went thru yesterday afternoon, and I still haven't received a confirmation email. Anyone else have this issue? Usually, email confirmations are automatic.

By memory -- WBShop emails have always been 'sometimes' esp during sales.
If your payment card has a temp/pending charge and the Order history is there, I think you're OK.
Trying to contact WB or Araca to ask questions doesn't seem like has been a very useful pursuit in the past

Has Warner Archives gone to burning their Blu-rays? All of the ones that I've bought from them in the past were pressed. I thought that they only burned the DVDs.

No - 100% pressed. I think you misread MooMoo's post

Re: Warner Archive Sale - 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

I'm considering an order. They're charging sales tax, & as we have the highest sales tax rate in the USA, it's 4 for $48.50 for me (& they're actually undercharging on the tax....... it should be 4 for $48.88)

I'm still not used to an 11% surcharge on internet purchases........

The highest sales tax in the US is 11.5% (Puerto Rico).

I wasn't aware of PR. That's even worse due to the poverty level. We're around 11.1 depending on the city.

Addict that I am, I ended up biting:

blu: Performance
Frankenstein 1970
dvd 13th Chair
Coquette

Sad thing is all 4 are upgrades of films I already have! And I only have around 3,000 I haven't watched.......

Re: Warner Archive Sale - 4 for $44 + Free Shipping

Got my order today. The following comment probably belongs on the dvd board, but this is the only Wac thread I can find.

For the first time ever, I received a MOD that after a quality scan I didn't feel the need to rip & re-burn. It wasn't as good as a TY scan, but Coquette was on a Verb & it scanned 95/838.

On the other hand, 13th chair was a dual layer on a POS CMC disc. It scanned 70/14,000+. I split it into 2 dvd5's with software & re-burned onto 2 TY's. Fortunately, the 2 films are about the same length, so each disc has 1 film.

I am not aware on any blank dual layer media today that isn't absolute garbage. Both Verb & Falcon used to be decent.

That's good to know since I think my DVD-R days are behind me. Anything I'd want to permanently preserve would get ripped to a hard drive and stored digitally.

I always back up important burned discs & music/movie files.

How about backing up to BD-R instead of DVD-R? Are BD-Rs any better than "absolute garbage" these days. You seem like the most knowledgeable person around on this subject. Optical Quantum used to be good. I'm not sure about Optodisc. What have been your recent results in finding / testing of quality BD-Rs?

I'm also not at all familiar with burned blu's, other than I've heard they're not real reliable. None of my pc's have a blu burner.
