I see this crop up here from time to time and it was just mentioned in another thread I started, and it puzzles me. Having maybe purchased roughly half my 100+ collection of DVDs used, I don't understand the negative reaction some people have to buying used. Is it because you got burned with some bad discs? Of all the discs I've bought, only one was bad. Memento Special Edition had a really off color scheme with very washed out scenes and purplish skin tones. Fortunately I already owned the regular edition and had a pretty good idea this was NOT how the disc was supposed to look. Close inspection of the disc revealed a myriad of tiny criss-crossed scratches in one area. It almost looked like someone had deliberately taken a pin and scratched up the disc. I bought it from The Warehouse and was innitially afraid they wouldn't give me my money back ("I don't see anything wrong with it: the picture looks fine,") because after all it didn't skip or break up or anything. But they did give me my money back and said they had occasionally seen this before. Anyway, the point is, that was my ONE bad experience vs. maybe FIFTY good experiences that saved me a ton of money... So do the rest of you know something I don't? What's the supposed drawback to buying used?
