I love Star Trek and was pleased to finally make the big purchase for the Next Generation dvds. I was, however, very disappointed in the packaging. The discs came in several separate sets of plastic holders. These holders were damaged with several discs not secured in their place. I had to remove all of the discs and put them in another holder. I love the dvds and especially the bonus materials at the end of each season. I would recommend them but would add caution about the packaging.
it's got all the discs, with all the episodes, titles of each episode written the respective disc, so mission accomplished. we've only watched four episodes on two different discs so far; in one episode it skipped ahead a couple chapters and wouldn't allow rewindng to the previous spot. can't swear it's not my dvd player, but it plays all else OK, so.... probably could get better packaging and no wrinkles if you paid full retail, but for the price it hits the spot.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? looks about right; packaging is not robust but who cares
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? about right
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. jury still a little out
I grew up with TNG, so having them on DVD is great and that's the bottom line. There are two downsides to this particular set, but they both have nothing to do with the episodes. One: the packaging is horrible. The clear plastic is very thin and the top lid and side panels ripped off right away, but oh well, there's a grey, harder plastic box it's in, so that keeps it together, just not covered. Two: The 3 sets of green plastic that the DVDs are in aren't labeled. The DVDs are labeled with season and the episodes they contain, though. Luckily, I have the book "Star Trek TNG: The Continuing Mission" that has a list of seasons and the episodes in each, with descriptions, so I can better find the episode I want. It's a great book, too. I'm sure you can look online, though, and find a listing of that info if you didn't want to buy the book. Overall, a great series and DVDs are good quality. If the organization bothers you, you can just file them in a better container with labels.
Very fast shipping and it was packaged well. I've heard issues with cases being broken due to quality of materials used, but Overstock packed it well and had no issues. The cases supplied aren't of the greatest quality, but the price was well worth it.
The Next Generation in one complete, perfectly produced (picture/sound), convenient edition! The series itself well written, wonderfully acted and directed. As TV series come and go, this one lasted seven seasons which tlls you how good the story lines are and producer Gene Roddenberry mind captivates. You don't have to be a science fiction fan or 'trekkie' to enjoy this collection. The entire cast excels. Best price on the internet.
I bought this for my boyfriend for our anniversary, and he was just ecstatic about it. He describes it as "everything I've ever wanted, in one gigantic box". The packaging is not that great - the plastic is brittle and cracks easily, but you can't see the cracks when it's sitting on the shelf. Overall, I'd say this is a great set, and you will not find a better price than Overstock (trust me, I checked extensively).
This TV series from about 1987-1994 is excellent and I highly recommend it to anyone and all ages. This new set containing the full 7 seasons is not much different from the "silver boxes" 7 seasons set that has been available for several years and which Overstock also sells. The differences are: (1)This set has new & slimmer packaging and (2) This set has a disk #49 with some new special features for the 20th anniversary of this series. The other 48 disks are the same with all the episodes and the same special features.
This is a must have for anyone who likes Star Trek! It has a ton of behind the scenes commentaries. I gave the set to my husband for his birthday and he loved it! However, I was really disappointed with Overstock's shipping. They didn't wrap the dvd set in any packing material so the dvd case arrived chipped. Not the care I would have expected toward such a pricey item.
