Recently I just bought a 8 titles from
buydvdnow.cjb.net

All the titles are multiregion, some with DTS some with DTS ES

Quality are good, they are just started their business
Good thing is that , you can ask them to find titles if what you want is not in the list

WRONG
Why does this myth persist? You are wrong. Most asian DVD's are region 0 for 2 reasons:

1. If they are an asian movie, the studio does not belong to the MPAA. They can region code anything they want, usually 0. You'll notice these movies also do not show "Unrated" or the standard MPAA ratings of G, PG, R, etc..

2. Hong Kong manufactures DVD's for the world. If a movie has already been released in its' intended market, and this is an asian/south pacific release, it will usually be region 0 as they end up manufacturing DVD's for multiple regions.

Asian does not equal bootleg
Region 0 does not equal bootleg
Asian Region 0 does not equal bootleg

Asian Region 0 does not equal bootleg
I want to add something to this excellence post. Somehow the MPAA decided that Asia (including Asia minor and Australia) region should have a total of 6 region in the area. Region 1 - 6 comprise the whole Asian region. This can be a pain for DVD producer so that why you see most Asian movies region 0.
