Technet Subscription with Media - $599 vs $349 - Pro? DVD's the diff?

There is a $250 difference between Professional and Media subscriptions. My understanding is that the Media subscription is the exact same as the Professional subscription in terms of keys, activations, etc. Then the Media subscription comes with the actual DVD's.


My questions are:


1.) Are the DVD's, the actual RETAIL DVD's with the Windows Logo, etc?
2.) What is the limit on the amount of DVD's shipped to one's house? How often can one order DVD's?
3.) Do the DVD's come shrink wrapped with the COA?
4.) For a $250 difference between subscriptions, is the Media (DVD's) the main or only difference?

Thank you!

Decide what? I just want to know the answers to my questions. That page tells nothing. Thanks for trying to help though.

It's crazy they'd charge $250 extra for DVD's so I thought there had to be something extra.

Thanks
