Digital City www.shop-4-dvd.com Complaint - "The Practice" Full TV Series 168 episodes

Review by Storybook on 2007-07-14
I ordered "The Practice" full series from Digital Cities (www.shop-4-dvd.com). I received the 22 DVD's promptly but I was not happy with what I received. The discs came without any packaging in plain unmarked envelopes.

The video quality was poor, images often pixilated, and the FX TV logo appeared at the bottom. Also periodic advertisements scrolled across the bottom of the screen.

I wonder if they didn't just tape these episodes off someone's TiVo. No chapter index, no cast and crew credits but luckily no commercials. However, because of the way they taped the episodes you can't skip through the opening intro. You have to fast forward through it, watching carefully for when to stop.

I wonder if these DVD's are even legal. I emailed the company 2 times but haven't gotten any response yet.

Heads up! This is a low quality product.

Question: How much did you pay for those dvd? You bought those dvd because you thought you got the best bang for your buck, but instead you got ripped off.

You got ripped.......They taped them, report them.

You have purchased pirated DVDs taped off cable or satellite. Pirating is illegal. Contact your local FBI office and provide them with all particulars. The reason for the FBI rather than local is that the FBI investigates all copyright cases. Don't let these pirates take advantage of somoene else.

Hey thanks for the response. I paid 99.95 plus 18.00 for shipping. Maybe I will go to the FBI, but if I do they will probably want the DVD's. Then I'll have nothing. I'm sure I'll never see the money again.

How can you make sure someone is legit out there? I hope my credit card info is safe.

Yes I just had the same problem!! I ordered the dvds marked "great quality" and the quality is terrible. They are exactly as you have described. I would never buy from them again. I think they must be illegal or fraudulent.
