I was half expecting to receive the version that comes in a race-car-shaped collector's tin, since that was the picture I saw the first time I checked it out. Later, when I bought it, the picture was an image of a newspaper, which gave me pause. What I got was the complete series in a standard plastic DVD box (which may actually be better for the long-term protection of the discs than the cardboard sleeves that come in the collector's tin!) So far so good in watching them, but I'm only on the first disc.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Not even close; the first time I looked at it the image was of the collector's racecar shaped tin; the next time it was a picture of the NYTimes newspaper!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fairly close to accurate.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. So far so good; I've watched over half of the first disc and all is well to this point.
This was my first time trying out Overstock. and I couldn't be more happier with the service, product selection, and customer service. Aside from getting what I ordered, I was happy somebody even had the complete collection of this iconic classic animation gem. It was delivered on time and shrink wrapped nice and tight. Thank you Overstock.com for making my first purchase with you all a very satisfying experience.

After looking on-line at several web-sites for the special packaging of the Speed Racer boxed set, I decided to buy from Overstock. I already have half the episodes but I wanted the special packaging. I was looking forward to giving my little son the birthday gift of a box of dvds that looked like the Mach V toy he has been playing with and set it apart as something special. I was very disappointed to find I was sent just a regular dvd box. The day has come and gone as has the opportunity to share something from my childhood with my son in a special way with a little wow factor. Thanks for that Overstock. I'll remember you the next time I buy on-line. I'll certainly shop with more reliable sellers in the future.
