so who is the clear winner? R 2 or R 6?
also, an easy safe way to buy the R6?
Trouble with the Jurassic Park box set is that it comes with the super s**te Lost World.
I bought the four-disc R2 set for £12 a while back. Glad I waited.
already have the R1 4 disc box and the 3 film Japanese DTS Superbit set - not buying it again Happy
More to say...

Popular pirated Jurassic Park DVD in China mostly copied from Japanese R2 Superbit. So Universal Pictures makes a better Region 6 version to battle pirated Japanese R2 superbit Happy

The DVD format is dual-layer single sided, also known as DVD-9,
Warner put DVD-9 on cover to emphasize the superior quality just like what priated DVD do for years.

Chinese consumers believe that DVD-9 means great picture. Most of them don't understand what DVD-9, DVD-5, DVD-10, DVD-18 means. (dual-layer single sided, single-layer single sided, single layer dual sided, dual-layer dual sided respectively)

Many European R2 and Asia R3 DVD also use the term "DVD-9" but usually print it on back of DVD case not in front.

Note for buying Hollywood R6 DVD from China:

When you purchase Hollywood R6 DVD, you only buy those distributed by following distributors, do NOT buy others.

The Region 2 SUPERBIT is the disc to own for those concerned with image quality and have the Home Theater system to back-it-up.
Jurassic Park, DTS soundtrack and highest bit rate
Feedbacks from some Chinese customers that Universal Pictures Jurassic Park 1, 2 and 3 Region 6 DVD that released by CAV Warner in Nov last year are probably the best PAL release ever. The bit rate hit 9Mb per second, even higher than Superbit edition.

The English DTS soundtrack for Jurassic Park 1 and 2 are exclusively remixed for R6 editions.
