Re: Those with LEGIT Voyager DVDs, please help

Hmm, those look pretty dodgy to me. They don't match my set (neither the packaging nor the disc art) and I've never seen a legit set use those kind of disc sleeves set loose like that. They could be re-issues I guess, but I'm surprised to see the disc art be different.

For what it's worth, all the other Trek I see there matches mine.

What disc art? unless printing just the name counts as art these days.

Re: Those with LEGIT Voyager DVDs, please help

I figured it was obvious I was talking about the design of the printing on the discs. Pretend I said "disc text" then.

Also, it seems I was right. Found this on the Amazon listing. I'm sorry to say that it looks like you were had, Trekker82.

Re: Those with LEGIT Voyager DVDs, please help

It does appear that my copy is a boot leg... Why can't people just be honest. :|

I wonder if the image quality is the same? I think if I were to re-purchase, I'll wait until they are remastered... whenever that will be.

I just looked back on my Amazon order, I paid $262 to "kingofsales" 4 years ago.

Re: Those with LEGIT Voyager DVDs, please help

I'd say as long as you're happy with the quality, it's not a total loss. Just a pity that some scumbag made money off of you.

As for judging the quality, maybe you could take a few screengrabs and compare them to the galleries at Trekcore?

Re: Those with LEGIT Voyager DVDs, please help

I think that's what I'll do tonight along with testing all of the discs. I haven't watched them all yet. I think I'll be waiting a while for the Voyager remastering at this rate. I'll post some comparisons this weekend.

Re: Those with LEGIT Voyager DVDs, please help

I'm not sure if TrekCore tweaked their photos at all, but mine are straight out of VLC player. It doesn't look bad to me on my TV, comparable to DS9 DVDs...

The left are TrekCore's and the right are my screen caps:

Really? 'Cause yours look way better to me than the ones on the left. I wonder if Trekcore's caps are from the NTSC or PAL DVDs...may explain the differences.

At any rate, if those are your caps on the right I'd be happy with the DVDs you've got.

I thought that mine were sharper, but the saturation was better on theirs. On the TV it looks fine, just like any other older DVD TV show. I can't wait to see what the show looks like when/if it gets re-mastered. I think for now, I'll save my $ and stick with my bootlegs- I just hope that all of the discs work.

Of the two, I prefer the saturation on yours...the left shots' skin tones are a little bright pink for my taste.

My friends came back from India with a mass of pirated dvds, so I sat down to watch season one of Ugly Betty and half the time during the end credits their was a TV announcer telling you about the weather or what was on next.

They weren't even trying.

But it was sold for a dollar bought from a carboot, it's not like they had to try.
I refuse to buy DVDs in Asia (or on the street for that matter) due to a very deeply engrained revulsion at supporting organized crime. That includes refusing to watch them when friends turn up with them.

I once had the wonderful opportunity to deliver a statement at a conference on organized crime in Central Asia, into which I was able to include a reference to a number of conference delegates I'd watched buy pirated DVDs and CDs at the Osh market in Tashkent.

The fight against organized crime, I said then, begins in this room. I still hold to that. I paid full buck for my Voyager DVDs on amazon. The people who made it and the artists who worked on it deserve to get paid.
