Has anybody purched DVD's from this Ebayer?

Has anybody ever purchased from this Ebayer? They have a lot of "uncut" "unrated" DVD's my question are these legit region 2 (or whatever region) DVD's or are these bootlegs? How is the quality? I definitely see a couple I wouldn't mind having

Eyes Wide Shut Unrated
Dune
CIA Trackdown

Your thoughts??

Sorry about that guys, here is the seller, thanks for laughing it over instead of flaming me too, shows how much class DVD talkers have vs other boards

With feedback responses like: Customer error, unfamiliar with compatibility standards. Have consulted w/ info

I'd be a little suspect of the seller

I would be wary....seems to me that everytime somebody complains about quality, compatability, etc...the seller probably offers a refund, and they both agree to withdraw the feedback.

That way the seller keeps a good rating, and nobody complains about receiving bootlegs. IMO, it seems like they have a ton of copies of dvds that are worth good money, which usually would mean bootlegs.

They all look like bootlegs... Especially due to the fact that if all those "Uncut" versions were region free we'd all be buying them.

From one of this seller's auctions:

If you have a rediculous machine loaded with proprietary firmware (ie: Sony Playstation) designed to prevent playback of DVDs from other country's simply because they are pal, you may need to through the junk away and get a 30 buck Apex-brand player.
Man, if I could just get rid of that proprietary firmware that kept my DVD player from playing PAL, I'd be all set.

Bootlegs...the fact that every box cover says "Stock Photo" below it should tip you off. He probably doesn't even have boxes for the discs he's selling.

How can you say that. The few random ones that I clicked on he clearly stated what region they were. Riget was correctly stated as Region 2, Pi as Region 1. I don't know if the Nadja release is legit though. Region 0 doesn't necessarily mean bootleg.

I would be wary of the seller, but just going by his description not everything is a boot (and in fact 90% of the small amount I checked seemed legit).

Of course they may be DVD-Rs or the like.

"buyer sells"

So is the buyer selling or the seller buying? What is this world coming to?

I agree with fnordboy. At least some of the auctions I checked out seem to be legit. He has different region discs and the prices are all over the place (a bootlegger's prices are usually a bit more consistant). I'm not saying that I think he's 100% legit, but I've seen far shadier DVD auctions on ebay, so lets just label the guy as "questionable" . The weird thing about this guy though, is that he seems to be located in either the US or UK (with prices either in dollars or pounds). I guess it could be two guys who use the same account (don't think it's against ebay rules).
