I got this from Play a wee while back (couple of months) i can say it was safely packed in a cardboard box with bubble wrap very secure.

But for the sake of a quid or something you may want to stick with Amazon.

Hot price :)

I think this a a fantastic mini-series and I have the DVD box set already. My question is whether its worth spending another £25 to get it on blue ray, when many of the sequences are "shaky shaky camera" and will probably look the same on DVD or Blue Ray.

Has anyone compared the Blue Ray version to DVD?

Rated hot BTW - especially for those who liked the series but don't own it...

There's a very detailed review, including comparison with the DVD version here

’Band of Brothers’ boasts an impressive 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer that effortlessly outshines the miniseries’ DVDs and HD broadcasts in every regard.

What more can you say , its the best war drama/film ever made (on a par with Das Boot ) . If you love BoB and have never seen the mini series Das Boot then what are you waiting for , heat added.

I own both the DVD and BD boxsets and the biggest improvement is definatly the sound, from DD5.1 to DTS-HD makes it so much more atmospheric amd "cinematic"

The picture quality improvment is mostly seen when watching on a very large screen, i watch films (and these big budget TV Series) on a 120' Optoma projector and the BD are far superior even with the grain and "washed out" look added by the director, on a 42' LCD TV the difference is hardly noticebale to be honest.

My opinion is if you have the money, large TV and a decent Amp and speaker setup then this is worth every penny of £25 but if your watching on a <50' TV with two speakers and already have it on DVD then its not.

Price wise its pretty much this price everywhere online so i havent voted either way.

Same here, I was initially wary after some complaints from others. But mine came very adequately packed and in perfect condition. :thumbsup:

probably because so many "others" like me who complained and returned ours along with a handwritten note of complaint (boxset was sent to me in a about 1mm thick cardboard foldpack), so you guys got a properly packaged boxset. :roll:

anyways finally received my replacement from Play, this time it IS properly packaged in a box with a layer of bubblewrap around it, so no dents. But when I opened the factory sealed shrinkwrap, just like last time, there are many quite obvious lines and scratches on both sides of the metal tin case, but it's looks to be factory sealed and not re-sealed, I guess it must have happened due to poor handling & storage in the factory. (but my "mint as new" R1 DVD set bought from eBay has less lines & scratches than this factory sealed UK BD set, weird :thinking: )

anybody noticed the lines and scratches on their metal tin case? (whether it's bought from Play or Amazon or anywhere else)

Got mine from Play, no damage and Quidco too.

Still, however you choose to do it, under £25 for this is not bad going at all.
#13
i had mine from play also, came in a crappy jiffy envelope it was in there extremely tight but suprisingly no dents or damage :)

I bought this a few months back for £35 and a bargain at that I thought.

I've had Blu Ray for a while now, most films I've watched you go WOW! at first but soon get used to it after a couple of minutes, but this is the best constant wow effect, really gritty and sharp as a pin gives it a far better feel and atmosphere to the entire series than the DVD (which I already had) - £25 for this box set is a steal.

Heat added.

Exactly if you have a 32" LCD upscaled DVD is good enough Blu-Ray is overkill
