Note

PLANET EARTH (2007 release) just dropped to 7 // 8.93 shipped so a hair under $15 shipped with a Fee Free CC. I'm pretty sure this is a new price point. I'm not sure if it might help anyone who ordered it a week or two ago, but Amazon Uk seems much more amenable to adjusting for post purchase price drops compared to the US sibling.

PLANET EARTH

Seems to be on backorderd at Amazon so select Amazon in teh right Hand Sellers option to see the best price.

Those who post "same transfer" in reviews usually have access to both U.S. & European editions, and can compare them either visually or thru automated tools like BDinfo. (Some titles may have comparisons on sites like Caps-A-Holic.)

Theatrical releases belonging to the same "big six" studio in both U.S. & UK usually originate from the same transfer, varying only in cuts & dubs; sometimes the transfer is the same even if the studio is different. (Gladiator's botched initial transfer by Universal was used for both their UK version and Paramount's U.S. version.) To save mastering costs, many of them use the same masters in both U.S. & UK where possible, most commonly WB & Universal; even dubs are often the same on both discs. (It's not unusual to see both "Castellano" -- Castilian or "Spanish" Spanish -- and "Espanol", usually Latin American Spanish, on subtitle and/or dub lists in both U.S. & UK; the EU insists on the former while the Americas obviously prefer the latter.)
BD players: PS3 Slim 250GB; Sherwood BDP-5004 (region-free); HP P7-1010 w/ LG WH12LS38K, AMD HD 6570, TMT 3, 5 & 6, PDVD 11, Nero 11
A/V hardware: Vizio E3D320VX 3DTV; Sony HT-SS380; Vizio Co-Star (Google TV); Radiient HDMI switch (PC also has Hanns-G HL227 & Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers)

Thank you, RBBritain! That's good to know. Should save me a few USD/EUR on importing discs that I can then spend on importing (other) discs!
