Default inetvideo shady?

I just got a shipment from inetvideo, and I had ordered all new HD DVDs. However, when I opened up a couple of them, there were fingerprints all over the discs. The product descriptions indicated new.

I haven't tested the discs at all. Also, the HD DVDs weren't expensive by any means. Is it okay to just let it slide, or would you contact them and complain?

I've used them in the past and while their shipping is slow as molasses I've never had a problem with them. I'd let it slide but I'll let others chime in.

I have purchased discs from many sources and some have had fingerprints on them and yet they were clearly new sealed discs...Manufacturing these things is not exact and I am sure more than one was put in the case by hand if the machine broke down etc...

Yeah, I thought of that, but the packages were in cheap cellophane that certainly did not appear to be from a factory.

If the security tape was in place don't sweat it...If no security tape I'd question it...

Definitely sounds shady to me. I've come across a few eBay sellers repackaging used discs and selling them as new as well. Cheap wrapping, fingerprints, and incorrect cases give it away every time.

email them and tell them what happened... They may credit you for them. It's also not totally their fault. They may purchase 500 "new" from a distributor and 497 are new and 3 were meant for the used pile.

I've ordered used hddvd's from them and that's how they ship them. Sounds like you got the used copies instead of new.
