    Communication speed is specified in bits while data download speed is measured in bytes.

    i.e. 8 bits = 1 byte

    So for a UL750 connection: 256 kbps (kilobits) = 32 kBps (kilobytes)

    You are getting the maximum possible speed for your connection plan.

    Since uTorrent was purchased by Bittorrent Inc., the official Bittorrent client is essentially the same as uTorrent

    i wonder to know that one day a picture released in theater and next day it is available for download on torrents with a nice quality does any law does not govern these torrents.

    There are lot of tussles going on between the MPAA and P2P networks.

    MPAA and movies studios are crying foul over P2P and claiming it as piracy. They say that P2P sites are robbing the studios, artists and others out of their rightful revenue when people upload and share copyrighted contents on P2P sites.

    The advocates of P2P claim that only the studios (and sometimes top artists) are denied the share of revenue. The lower artists, support crew, staff, etc. whom the studios are championing never get the share of the revenue anyway.

    In my personal opinion, the studios keep the DVDs (and BDs) exorbitantly priced and that is leading to piracy to a large extent. The manufacturing and distribution cost of a DVD is no more that $2 ($4~$5 for BD) and yet the price of a new DVD is $20, $24 for special 2 disk edition and $30 for Blu-Ray. If the price is cut by 75%, the studios will see a quantum jump in sales offseting the loss of revenue by lower price and still earn huge profits. Piracy will come down drastically (if not totally eliminated).

    The Chinese are pioneers in the 1st day copies. They have a big network. The master copy is created from diagital telecine converters (not camera prints). The copy is transmitted to the Chinese factories where DVDs are pressed in huge quanitities. The DVDs are as good as original (maybe minus the chapters and extra content). A lot of it finds its way on P2P networks and online movie sites.

    There is very little the studios and law agencies can do about it.

    ......... also when those 20-24$ dvds reach india, its market price becomes unreasonable. Nobody likes to use counterfeit products.almost everybody would buy original copyrighted dvds if their price is kept within reason. How many original dvds can a middle-class person buy per month. 3/4 max. desire to watch a good film is almost as intense as carnal desires. u cant put a bound to it. so, as long as the studios do not rectify their hunger for more billions, the piracy problem will b there.

    I agree ... but did you know that if you wait for a month , you can get those dvd s at a reasonable price ....... I am a movie [original] collector/connoisseur ....what i do is i satisfy my craving to watch the movie as soon as it is released by going to theater ... and wait a month before buying the dvd ....

    Cause Indian Companies buy the distribution rights from the Studios directly and start selling it for reasonable price ... But it takes atleast 2-4 weeks to come out in this form ..... so if you have patience you can get it ...

    that is exactly what i do.
    but indian distributor only release a handful of films which they r sure would be hits. All the others, specially old ones come from different source. and therein lies the problem.

    In the west, the DVDs are priced $20-24 when new and the price starts dropping after 3/4 months. After a year, the price is almost half. This does not happen in India. But Moser Baer has brought the price revolution that I talked about (check my link in signature).

    If MB can do it, I am sure Hollywood studios can do it also. If DVDs were sold at $5, I may have to dedicate a room for storage (check my collection).

    very good collection. i have about 99% of those films in the list in my coll. (excluding hindi films and tv-series). recently acquired the x-files complete.
    u have two films which i have been searching like a raving maniac. one being gene wilder's the woman in red and the 2nd is the jeeves tv-series.
    anyway, i will create my list someday and upload it.
    once again, pretty good coll u got there.

    The reason that my collection so limited is because:

    a) I prefer originals (DVDs)
    b) I am not travelling so often these days; I find the Indian DVDs slightly off quality.
    c) I would like to own those which I would like to watch often
    d) I am now thinking in terms of BD but these are quite expensive as of now.

    who said ur collection is limited........
    u have some gems which even i dnt have. its the quality of collection that counts and bro, u have very good taste.

    oh, and another thing, i probably didnt see "fierce creatures" in ur list. had a thought that u might want to add it in ur collection. it boasts of the same cast from A FISH CALLED WANDA, and is a great comedy. kevin kline gives another gr8 performance. though this didnt bring him another oscar like the previous one.

    Thanks. I will look up at "Fierce Creatures" next time.

    The reason, I say my collection is limited because I have seen people with over 1000 (original) titles. I don't know what they do - buy every DVD?

    LOL. And where do you store your 5K collection?

    If 35% are originals, that makes it 175 or so. Not bad. I, too, have some torrent downloads (a total around 20 titles) which I intend to buy soon:

    - The Bourne Ultimatum
    - Iron Man
    - Knight Rider
    - Star Trek - The Next Generation (still downloading)
    - David Attenborough's The Living Planet (I am reserving this as a BluRay collection)
    - A few animation films like Madagascar, Monster Inc., etc.

    My aim is not to have any bootlegs ultimately.

    I wanted to watch Dracula (Horror of Dracula) which Christopher Lee starred. But is not available. Not in shops(near my place) or in internet.

    thats how i think too;
    i mean, how would i feel if i were a director and found out all my major hits were being downloaded and seen at home.terrible.

    anyway, since my majority r from torrent, 1 dvd holds 6 films(700mb)(generally). and i have over thousand such dvds. i keep the originals in 1 rupee plastic cd holders and then keep em safely. cause i have seen the original cd/dvd cases do more damage due to friction. my favourite, "dog day afternoon" original cds were ruined that way.

    Actually it's my Dad who said it's a good movie. I read lot of stories like Christopher lee performance was so good that people thought he is actually the Dracula himself.

    'bela lugos' that's the first Dracula movie Right ?

    BTW. Have you seen Sound of Music ?

    yeah bela lugosi became the first vampire ever..

    and yes, the opening scene with julie andrews in that wind swept valley is the greatest cinematic moment on silver screen.( to me)background score "the hills r alive" contributed mostly to that scene.

    heh heh, well , lee's performance was so great that he had to play vampire over 10 times in his entire career. that man never got the media attention he deserves. it happens a lot to people who achieve fame early in career. same thing happened to orson welles. he practically ate his way to death.

    That was awesome. I mean the scenery was just great. Better than any new movies could ever do with computer graphics and stuff.

    The hills are alive
    With the sound of music
    With songs they have sung
    For a thousand years
    The hills fill my heart
    With the sound of music

    Compared to both of you jay and evan ... i can only call myself as Amateur collector

    My collection has very few old movies for the same reason u described ....... I too insist on an Original DVD/CD ..... so old movies are hard to come buy .... But i am always searching especially when i go abroad ......
    There is also the other problem ..i also collect Song Albums and game dvds .... so my financing is also a bit stretched
    [PC Game DVD costs minimum rs 1200 and max of upto rs 2500...and thats only a single dvd]

    Hopefully one day i ll have a Fearsome collection .....
    But i have quiet a dvd collection of Multimedia in general ....

    Bitcomet has always worked the best for me.
    My top download speed is about 260-280 kbps and the average comes to about 150-210 kbps
    My broadband plan is Combo500 . So, I get the max. of my speed, about 260 kbps.
    As your plan is 750UL, that may be your max. achievable speed.
