    I hope this is in the right forum.
    I just had a *great* experience with an online vendor. Eureka movies (of http://www.eurekamovies.com) sells VCDs. I found the link to them here on the forum. Considering Star Wars isn't out on DVD and I don't own a VCR here at my university home, I purchased their Star Wars trilogy on VCD. I don't know if they're OAR - I don't know what kind of sound or transfer they have and I don't know what the visual quality is - But heck, it was a treat for me. The fact that there is a legit digital copy of Star Wars out there was something I had to have.
    In any case - instead of getting the Star Wars Trilogy - I got the first seven Star TREK films in a boxset. You can imagine my dismay - I already own 1 and 2. Three ain't bad, four is worth a laugh, five is an exercise in why Bill Shatner shouldn't direct, six is fun and seven made me cry.
    I emailed Dennet Chew - my contact at Eureka - at 9PM on the 2nd of January. By 4:11 AM on the 3rd of January I had received an email that stated that there was no need to return the mis-sent item and that the Star Wars Trilogy was being sent immediately via Fedex.
    This is what good customer service is all about. Everything I have done with Eureka so far has been handled by their staff with the utmost of respect and care. I would handily recommend them to anyone who has need for a VCD purchase.
    As soon as I get these new discs, I'll post my impressions of the visual and auditory quality.

    Almost all commercial VCDs are pan&scan for scope films.
