Just got notification that my D-Theater copy of Die Hard shipped yesterday.


If I'm lucky I'll get it for the weekend. At any rate, I'll report back on the quality of the movie after a viewing.

Hi Tom,

Let us know how it looks......... BTW, of all the titles that you have seen, which one(s) have the BEST picture quality??

Thanks, Tom B.

U571 and X-MEN are the best. WSR rates DIE HARD a 4, which means it will look better than the DVD, but not as sharp as we'd like (likely due to the filters used during filming).

I'm still waiting for Die Hard to be delivered. I ordered X-Men yesterday, thanks for the heads up Matt.


One thing I will say about the quality of D-Theater is all the movies I have look better than a DVD, and I'm temporarily using an Infocus LS110 which has a lower resolution than HD (it's 800x600).


Movies are:


U-571

Independence Day

Terminator II

Back Draft

I cancelled my order with BestPrices.com and ordered it from DVDempire.com and they shipped it within 16 hours. I should have it tomorow or Thursday, but will likely not be able to view it until the weekend.

kipp,


There are coupon codes you can use with DVDEmpire, and they don't charge shipping on orders with 4 items or more. Search Google to find current coupon codes. I ordered a handful of titles, and it average about $25/title.

I used a $5 coupon and it came out almost exactly the same, only better, because they actually shipped them to me! At least, according to the tracking number they did.

I pre-ordered Die Hard, The Transporter and Courage Under Fire from BestPrices back on March 27th. I got an email on 4/12 saying Die Hard had shipped. A couple of days later, I got a copy of The Transporter. A few days later, I got an email saying that Courage Under Fire and The Transporter had been shipped. Guess what was in the two packages that came a couple of days later? Yep. I now have 3 copies of The Transporter.

BestPrices wants me to wait up to 14 days in case they mis-shipped the order. I won't be buying from them again.

I've had nothing but trouble from them on every wingle order I have ever tried with them for six months. I'm 100% done with them. They are simply inept.
