unable to accurately review,
This review is from: Top Gear - The Great Adventures: 1-4 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)I'm not sure how to review this item, since I cannot view the DVDs I purchased. I realize I purchased them from the UK, but when you are shipping to the USA wouldn't it be wise to send a DVD that has the correct "code" so it can actually be viewed in that particular country? I just opened them and they are not compatible with our DVD players here in the USA. So I will be returning them. Hopefully, you are able to send me the correct ones, or I expect to be reimbursed in full. I would like to give a really good review next time around.

In the Product Details it states;
Region: Region 2 (This DVD may not be viewable outside Europe. Read more about DVD formats.)
What more information would you like?
In any case, I would think it would be safe to presume a DVD bought from the UK would be Region 2 and thus unplayable on NTSC format DVD players. In the same way I would expect a DVD purchased through Amazon.com would result in an NTSC copy plopping itself on to my door mat.
You state 'unable to accurately review' (sic) as your review title. So why have you written one in the first place and left a rating of one star? Amazon reviews are for reviewing the product not amazon's service (which isn't deserving of one star either).
Something's gone wrong but it isn't Amazon's or the DVD's fault...........

Due to the way film and dvd licensing works, it would be illegal for them to sell you a region 1 dvd.

You sir, are quite clearly a blithering idiot. You buy a DVD from a .CO.UK site and complain that it is region 2??? Not to mention the fact that it quite clearly states that the disc is Region 2 and might not work outside Europe.
The error here is your own, and spitting out your dummy because you screwed up is just childish. Amazon are not at fault here.

I can't follow your argumentation if you ship to the US you should send it with Region Code 1 ...
Why do I say that ?
1. You might have moved from UK to the US and taken all your DVD's and Player with you and therefore need Region Code 2
2. You get want you order
3. I live in Germany, if I order a car in England do I automatically get a left hander ? :-)
