Yes the PAL is better but the NTSC is not bad. The audio quality is probably best (lossless PCM) on the PAL while the conversion software only offered Dolby Digital AC3 sound for the output on the NTSC. Even the AVI file is very good with its VBR mp3 high bitrate sound. The quality of the original PAL disc being so far above average was why I decided to go ahead and create some conversions. If you can play a PAL disc though it's the one to have. Or maybe copy all three with discs being so cheap now.
