Some CD's I buy original, especially those that are not-so popular that they go down to the 300 price range...

But for those that cost over 1400-1900 for a set of 2 (and sometimes just 1) CD, I will have to go back to my favorite little store in Greenhills that has those tunes burned from the original, and for dance/house/chill music that doesn't need ultimate quality in terms of build, the pirated price can't be beat ;D

Yep, some CD's original, especially those hard-to-find.

But surprisingly dami na ring pirated na hard-to-find. Hehehe

most of the time, i buy orig cd's, lalo na if the album is really worth keeping and collecting. otherwise pirated na lang. but what i do is buy the original, make a copy then yung yung lalagay ko sa kotse, so the orig cd won't be subjected to scratch.

pag music, hindi na ako bumibili, download nalang tapos burn. pag kasi bumili hindi naman lahat ng songs maganda. kung burn, pili yung mga songs and lahat gusto mo. pag movies lang saka bumibili.

Balance yung akin. But most of the time I buy original CD's kasi I listen to heavy Metal and Death Metal and other Rock music e. Wala gaano mabiling pirated na ganong klase e. Pero yung iba pwede naman ma download sa internet e.
Sa DVD orig binibili ko kung naka DTS and Superbit lang. Pero kung dolby Digital lang, pirated na lang para mas mura. Pero mas madami ako pirated kesa orig na DVD kasi mas practical (pag napanood mo na minsan di mo na papanoorin ulit diba?).

Agree ako diyan. Nakakaasar lang minsan, galit na galit yung record companies sa piracy, hindi naman dinadala dito yung orig na CD.

Like yung CDs ng Sevendust. Ever since first album nagpapabili na lang ako sa states, pero sa greenhills kaliwa't kanan yung pirated nun. Mas malala kung Nightwish at Meshuggah, naubusan ako sa Recto.Halos wala naman mahanap nito sa tate at wala sa mainstream stores, hindi ko naman masabihan dad ko na maghanap ng Goth na record store...

tama!  >:( tangina walang kwenta mga tindahan ng cd dto sa pinas! lahat wala! pucha kahit mainstream artists na lang wala pa rin! tapos d rin naisip ng mga record companies na maybe the reason kaya bumababa sales nila is dahil ang papanget ng mga nilalabas na music ng mga 'artists' today. puro manufactured corporate bullshit..
Title: Re:pirated or orig?
Post by: -cardo- on March 24, 2005, 07:19:05 PM
both!!!  ;D but most of the time pirate ako hehehe. pero kahit pirate, picky na rin ako hehehe. sayang din yun 100. petot.

pag games sure na pirate! eto sobra na talaga kase mahal yun orig, as in 4k ang orig PS/xbox games. pambili ko na lang ng speakers ;D

to test an audio cd if it's any good(or have atleast 3-4 good songs) i buy the pirated. if i like it, i get an orig.

ganun din sa DVD, most of the time i get pirated version. but if i enjoyed the movie and really like it, i wait for the orig DVD version. there are also some stuff in the orig that are'nt in the pirated version like interviews, special scenes, comics, figurines, etc. like the spiderman 2/LOTR series gifts sets, T2 Tin case ed etc. and yun Jack Attack mini movie sa Incredibles DVD!!! wala sa pirate eh... and the SHREK 3D which came with 3d glasses. my wife and i had so much fun with this!!!!  ;D

just like this special ed. of band of brothers. kung may pirate lang na ganito hehehe  ;D

Not advocating piracy, but here are some of the places where I have found bootleg software and audio:

- Basement of Makati Cinema Square (Initial D Stages 1-4 for only a thousand bucks :D !)
- Brochiere branches
- Divisoria Malls
- Tutuban Area
- Quiapo
- Sidewalk Vendors

I'm buying orig kung for keeps and talagang hard-to-find ang album  
Title: Re:pirated or orig?
Post by: Dondie on April 10, 2005, 06:39:12 PM
IMO, one thing that's driving consumers back to Original software is value.

For example, collectible items packaged with some movies. Shirts, action figures for free.

Or like for GT4 in Japan, there is an available package with bundles it with a nike shox pair of shoes and nike gt4 shirt.

The eyetoy scans the gt4 logo on the shirt then the nike1 car comes out. Things like that, special and extras. :)

I take pride on my CD collection .. over a thousand CD's, Isa lang ang bootleg ko which is the DAVE MATTHEWS BAND - LILLYWHITE SESSIONS (kasi naman, di talaga nila ni release to.. they released EVERYDAY instead, then yung BUSTED STUFF was the original LILLYWHITE Session except for a couple of songs).

Pirated DVDs are ok with me before but nahalata ko lang na nowadays, the quality has deteriorated badly.  Ang pangit ng video sobra.

Specially for me since I use a Projector.  Pag sobrang laki ng screen size, halata masyado na pixelized ang image.    There are times nga, kala ng nagtitinda nagyayabang ako.  

Pag ordinary lang ang movie, puede na pagtyagaan ang pirated.   But for big time movies with good soundtrack, iba talaga pag original region1

Post by: Jay-r on August 30, 2005, 09:27:24 AM
i usually download songs off the internet.  :) even albums if i could find them. i got a bunch of original cds, if i cant get them online i sometimes buy the original ones (depends if i really want the album). but if its those two cds kinda album which are like a thousand or 800 or 900 il just drop by ruins and buy the fake one. haha  ;D

fake dvds? hahah got a whole lot of them. ;D ;D

Try ABC torrent. It's better. ;D ;D ;D

I go orig, too. that's one reason why i don't have so much CDs now. Sound quality of paratas are poor when you get a good system going.

I use JET AUDIO instead to rip cds. And that's on the full format (WAV) so i still get the real thing afterall :D

But i only advocate doing it for personal keeps of hard to find cds and dvds only. :)

Depende kung gusto ko talaga I would invest in original

Lalo na Audio CD. Pero there was a time na ako nag bu burn ng mga audio cd from mga MP3 compilations na naheheram ko.

Sa video Puro halos pirated talag... I'd say 85% of my collection.  ;D that would include AVI files and DIVX files ko na nasa DVD-R na.  ;D

Pero May mga orig DVD pa rin ako like T2-judgement day (region1 yung metal casing) Matrix (region 1) tsaka Lord of the ring trilogy (lahat galing astrovision- Region 1)

Sayang lang yung pinaka-unang orig DVD ko na "Saving Private Ryan" region 1 yun. Nawala!!!  :'(

 :D Of course original not pirated CD, DVD from your favorite Muslim vendors in Quiapo, Greenhills. You can afford to buy a vehicle, you don't have a budget  for a quality product? Original CD's have a much better sound compared to a pirated ones which always skips. I prefer the sound quality of CD's compared with MP3, I-Pod and other downloaded music.  :)
Title: Re: pirated or orig?
Post by: Leo C. on July 30, 2012, 04:38:02 PM
For sound quality music e.g. classical, standard, vocals, .. orig and not MP3.

For disco, dance, rap, heavy metal, ... pwede na MP3, downloaded, or pirated. ;)
