Fantastic series ... well worth it at this price
yep it is.
I put my order in. THEN posted the deal

21038361-0Y4kR

Very good price! Does anyone know if this comes with an ultraviolet copy of the whole series? I know that some of the separate releases do.
Best I can tell from the reviews is that these are the same versions as the separate seasons, just boxed together.
so if some didn't have ultraviolet copies before , seems doubtful this box set does.

But that's not set in stone. Wont know for sure till it tuns up.

You could make them yourself in much better quality with makemkv and handbrake. You need a fairly decent processor though.

@steve: okay cool thanks, I might just go with it and see
@Stsonic: an idea, though my mac is a little old and probably won't handle it, it'll probably explode! Lol
Converting 1 epsidoe at 1080p on an i7 3770 takes 1 hour. Converting to SD would probably take about 20 minutes.

Does anyone remember the price in the black Friday deals?
Was this not priced around £28?
Do I replace my separate season 1-4 with this or keep hoping the 5th season will come down to a reasonable price?
Or subscribe to Netflix and binge for a week - well I did. Top deal.
Had these all on Blu Ray as they came out, watched them, loves them, sold them.

Should I buy again nd relive the wonder?.....oh go on then
Here we go netfix again lol netflix is not blu-ray not even close when will people learn.
Buy a big hdtv and Blu-ray player and then choose not to watch the best quality available ???

I bought my set thx op
For all interested if you choose to watch then sell it on? cex will give you £24 back at the moment but that can change on a daily basis also you should get a fair return on ebay even after the ridiculous fees that they are charging now, in-fact ye your prob better just using cex now.

Dunno when you last watched Netflix but the majority of TV shows are borderline bluray quality now. Super HD on dedicated devices.
I'm finally working my way through this awesome series on netflix. Almost finished season 4. Can def see myself watching it again so this is a fantastic deal. Smiling sweetly at hubby now lol!
lol superHD read the reviews of superhd vs blu-ray.

I've never watched Netflix nor would I although ive have seen what it can do Netflix/streaming will not be at blu-ray quality any time soon the internet sevices can't steam 50 gb discs in all there glory even the stand alone untouched blu-ray movie file with hd audio track averages around 30 gig.
Do you know any isp that will steam 30 gig in the 2 hrs it takes to watch the film?
not to mention all those that are capped. And wait till we get to 4k how are they going to steam that at full bitrate?

Netfix video bitrate is a 3rd of blu-ray quality and the audio is a joke no better than dvd.
what's the point buying all the hd gear , t.v, Blu-ray player, a/v system and then going backwards by using a streaming service?
blu-ray disc holds the best quality anything else and your really not getting the best from you equipment or watching your fav movies/tv shows at there best quality meaning you loose something in the experince.

Please watch any game of thrones episode on any stream service and then watch the same episode on Blu-ray, there is no competition.
super hd is a marketing gimik designed to compete with blu-ray, to make people think there getting beyond hd with superhd.
It should be titled "sub par hd" and what surprises me is how many people bought into this.
Netflix is now a well known name because people believed there marketing crap. oO

How can we move forward to 4k when people stop buying blu-ray because there happy to watch poor quality streams, all to save a few £ instead of moving forward to 4k were stuck in the past and what happens if discs go and there's no physical media then what? were all stuck with stream service and at the mercy of our isp service?

No internet company is going to allow you to stream a 30GB movie when you can achieve the same quality at about 10GB.

I'm not advocating Netflix over blue I'm just saying its 2014 and its pretty close especially for TV shows. You have not seen Netflix yourself so I don't know how you made your original claim.

What happens when Netflix start to release 4k content in the coming months? Will that still be worse than standard bluray...
@Exhausted. You can watch the fifth season on US netflix with a simple add-on in Firefox. UK site probably cannot get it yet due to Sky still having the rights..... To wade in a little further to the quality argument, depends what you want I suppose. Personally the ability to access content on all of the devices I own, starting and stopping at a point I last got to without the pain of having to decode and copy to my phone/tablet far outweigh the gains of watching on a Blu-Ray on my TV.

AIthough I felt the series really lost its way in the 4th/5th seasons this is a great price.

Read my comments again I have seen also you comment "No internet company is going to allow you to stream a 30GB movie when you can achieve the same quality at about 10GB" clearly you have no idea mate sorry but never can you get the same quality otherwise all blu-ray would be 10gig.

Also no isp can stream 30 gig inside 2 hours hense no streaming company can provide blu-ray quality.

As for your 2nd question even when they release 4k streams yes blu-ray will still be better they can't provide the high bitrates for 2k so even there 4k stuff will be massively compressed so as to stream out there.
as for any upgrade to 4k it will be very minimal over there current service and still not at the bitrate of 2k blu-ray ad the pixel resolution maybe there at 4k but the quality will depend on the bitrate of these pixels which define the detail.

this has been an on going problem basically if all were equal internet wise aka all getting the same everywhere and the isp could provide super fast lines equally to everyone then streaming would be a viable option over blu-ray but I have a 20meg line and Its one of the fastest in the uk and it's still not fast enough and no mate sorry 30gig and 10gig are not the same quality like I said earlier streaming is a 3rd of blu-ray bitrates.

You don't have a clue. That is like saying a DVD is better quality than a 720P bluray rip because the file is bigger.
Bluray was pioneered in the early 2000's. and came to market late 2006. Over time different formats come out which can do the same job requiring far less physical data. I understand you like all your media physical which is great, but that does not mean you can be so blind toward newer technology..

Hanbrake can make 1080p bluray rips from anywhere between 10GB-15GB which have absolutely zero reduction on quality. Do yourself a favor, rip a few and test for yourself before you spout nonsense to me about bitrates.

You make me laugh I have over 18tb of hard drive space I know all about mkv video encoding etc etc.
I have more files than you can imagine and I have over 1000 blu-ray the funny thing is you really have no clue and your openly saying these things and there are so many people on here that know this stuff.

you think you know handbreak you don't the mkv container keeps the same info in a smaller size over m2ts but going through handbreak or anything that encodes in essence looses something in the process.
I cant believe you just made that statement there's bount to be somebody else than can jump in and correct this I'm not wasting my time on you any more.
believe what you will but at some point you'll realise just how wrong you are.

you've now proven to everybody how clueless you really are lol zero reduction.
I guess all those blu-ray are just oversized and wasting space what were they thinking using 30gig for a movie when 15gig is just as good all these mastering studios are really clueless and using 50gig discs when 25gig discs will do and are cheaper wow they really have it wrong X)

I'm wasting no more time with this what do I care I know I'm watching the best quality and I really don't care if your not.

OMG my life is ruined I openly made a fool out of myself on an open HOTSPOT forum HOTUKDEALS. The horror my life is over.
They use all the data because they have to, the format was made over 10 years ago which is my understanding.

Forgive me if I am wrong and you are correct, the difference would be minuscule if there actually is any. Just please have mercy on me so I don't feel the need to choke myself now I openly made an absolute tit out of myself on HOTUKDEALS lol.

Whether you like it or not, streaming will over take physical in the years to come and all these folks choosing streaming will be the reason it will get better. Bluray is simply not good enough a leap from DVD for the average joe to care about. I remember buying my first DVD player in 1999 and it was amazing, never had that same feeling with Bluray.

I think the technical Blu-ray is leaps and bounds a head over DVD in picture and audio. The problem is most modem players do a good job of up scaling the 480 lined DVD so the difference is less.
Great price, orders, I'd take blu ray over netflix all the time.Hot

Just £5 less and I'm there....
watching "Fringe Division" (as my wife likes to call it ) on Netflix currently.
its certainly better then say getting a DVD ripping it to HDD and all that.
May not be as good as a dedicated bluray setup but generally good enough. kinda funny but can sometimes find the clarity a bit off putting ... oh look how much make up the actors have on today lol.

If your a big fan its a good deal on bluray.
personally I do like the show but doubt I'll watch it more once done watching.

I really can't understand why everyone is arguing over whether A is better than B is worse than C. This is a good price for all 5 seasons of Fringe on BR. It's a great TV show too. Hot deal. That's all most of us need to know (or care about).
I got a first order discount on mine, came to £33.24

Glad to see this price is still ongoing
and getting it for 33 quid is even better
