After posting the regular edition of this box set yesterday I realised its finally available for the lower price in the special edition.

This special edition of the greatest natural history series ever made, features all episodes from the original series, the Planet Earth team's video diaries, a breathtaking highlights package of the series' greatest moments and superb bonus extras including two spectacular full-length Natural World films.

This edition also features full 25fps instead of 24fps on the regular edition meaning smoother presentation.

Regarding the problems with box set I thought this was worth a mention from member bagand96:

I bought the special edition set from thehut.com (same group as Zavvi) a few months back and my set was fine, with none of the problems described in the AV Forums set. Its very easy to check anyway as AV forums list the disc serials for both the bad and corrected sets.

I reckon there's a very low chance of a bad set anwyay now, and even if you do get one, 2Entertain will replace free of charge, its a known issue and their customer service will help. AV Forums thread report they also chuck in a free Attenborough DVD too.

So even if you are seriously unlucky to receive the problematic box set you will be provided with the fixed version plus a free Attenborough DVD free!

Thanks bagand96

Really odd to differentiate a special edition with an extra fps ...



Well I compared it between extra features and also on fps because one of the main complaints on the regular edition was the fps that had to be scaled back for distribution in the US. I couldn't really differentiate between the 2 frame rates but obviously it must matter to some people, so thought i would add it. AV Forums discuss it here - avforums.com/for…tml

Well that's Mrs Halloway's Christmas present sorted. Thanks OP.

Thanks to this thread I will pass. Waiting for the right deal on this series but this doesn't seem to be the one.

nice of you to steal the wording and links that i provided on my posting.

isnt there a rule on here about giving props to orginal posters links?

Not full HD though?

I think I'll wait for The Planet Collection, which I believe includes this and frozen planet. currently £40 pre order but I'm sure the price will drop

Apparently the Planet Collection features the non-special edition of Planet Earth (missing the video diaries). If you want it, I beieve it was at Choices for £25.99!

I knew about the issues with some of these box sets as i visit AV forums quite regularly and weirdly had this same thread from AV forums on my bookmarks as I was looking at buying it a while back. I thought I would add the link to help others but after thinking about it i don't know whether that information is correct for this deal as I am unsure when this edition was released. Sorry if you think I copied your deal or your wording but I never saw any of the wording I just searched and saw your deal price and then added mine as it was cheaper.

All I do know is I have the regular edition of this and it was visually stunning.

I'll copy my comment from the normal edition post:

for those worried:

I Have The Special Edition From Zavvi And The Contrast Levels Are Fine

I don't have a bluray drive on my laptop, so forgive the quality, but you can clearly see the horizon isn't washed out by contrast unlike the inset image on the right.

This is a great price for a great set. Its what Blu-ray was made for.
