I used to, because I used to go out to eat, when I had more money, at this resturant a lot two years ago and the dvd people would always come in. They came in so much I was starting to think maybe they gave the owner free dvds, or maybe some of the profits. There was also a woman who would come up and down my block a lot who would sell dvds. However, she stopped once she sold someone a bad dvd and wouldn't take it back and they called they cops on here and the cops took all her stuff. I never bought a lot of them, though because they weren't great quality. Either the volume was bad or the picture, or both. I also don't buy from them anymore because the sellers usually refuse to take them back. I don't like buying from them because they can be too push. Like they get annoyed if you don't spend 20 dollars or something. Now, I buy mine from Amazon and there's a local dvd place by me that has good price and if you want to buy used they're really cheap.

Hi there i must confessed i also have some pirated dvd's here. The fact that it was cheap and the copy was clear is a big savings for my money. I know its prohibited to buy that pirated things but because of our current poor situation so no choice but to go in pirated im just being practical. Anyway, i know theres a campaign not to get pirated cd's or dvd's but what can i do like what i said i'm just being practical and i am contented with it.

me too.its too difficult to minus your money specially when you are saving.and i like watching movies at house.were you can lie down in your bed or were you can sit comfortably in any position you like and when your done you can rest directly or sleep not like in the movie house you still need to drive yourself in going home its too tiring.and most of all you can cost lot more expenses cause when your hungry you need to buy snacks at the movie house!thats another expense!hehehehe!thanks!

I buy DVDs from strange places, i can't always find good movies in regular stores, i have to search for movies that never gain popularity, and in them, there are often good movies... i like movies that make me think, so wherever i can find it i buy it, i don't care if it's pirated or not... usually these movies are very cheap anyway, so there isn't much difference...

well i know there's a lot of campaigns here against piracy but they just can simply stop it...coz lots of people are patronizing it! like what you said watching movies on cinema nowadays are too expensive while pirated dvd's are way much cheaper...and quality is good...satisfactory...and so i must admit that i am one of those who have this pirated cd's at home...hehehe! but now, i am not buying it anymore coz sometimes i just borrow to my friends and most of the time my husband just download movies from internet and qualities are also very good... have a nice day!
