I was about to place my first-ever purchase with Half.com, for a DVD, when I noticed the word "Laserdisc" in the description. This is really weird, since I was under the impression that LDs were in a different section. Apparently not?

The title was listed as "Over-Half", but was still a good deal - for the DVD. It had "(DVD)" after the title of the movie at the top, so I'm confused. Is there anyway to know for sure if this is a DVD or a LD?

It's a laser disc. Don't buy it.

They don't have a separate section.

Remember, Half.com is just the middleman. These are individuals selling their stuff. They list it wherever they choose, and then describe it however they like. This guy is selling a laserdisc. It doesn't matter that he chose to put it in the DVD section -- the description clearly says that it's a laserdisc.

You don't want to deal with the hassle of trying to get a refund on a half.com purchase. That takes a lot of work and several months, to boot. Don't get this unless you want the laserdisc.
