The best place to buy rare edition DVDs?
We hear everyday, or read on dvdcompare.net of how other region DVDs have more extras like DTS on a US movie that has been released in Japan and the american region dvd doesnt have DTS..

Where do you find online these kind of "rare" or hard to find dvds? Can you suggest an online place with delivery to the European Union?

Just buy them from a retailer in their country of origin. I've bought loads from Korea and Hong Kong. As for DTS being a deciding factor, well I wouldn't spend a load more on a title just because it has DTS.

DTS was just an example to make my point!

You bought dvds from a retailer in Korea and H.Kong? So you visited the countries?

Here's some that I've used in the past:

http://www.cd-wow.com - Only populist titles from all over
http://www.dddhouse.com - Hong Kong based, usually cheap
http://www.koreandvds.com - Korean & Hong Kong based
http://www.dvdfromkorea.com - Korean, often has rare titles
http://www.yesasia.com - Expensive, but good for rare titles
http://www.buyoyo.com - Sometimes good for very limited titles

If you like Eruo imports try http://www.xploitedcinema.com, they've also got some Asian stuff, but I suppose their prices on that stuff can't compete with companies based in the region.

I've never claimed to be helpful, but I do speak the truth. I've also fixed one of Mal's URLs because I'm such a nice person.
