Star Trek TNG Purchasing Question

I'm looking to make the plunge into an entire collection of Star Trek TNG. I'm wondering if anyone has purchased collector's editions, knows of a good collector's edition, ect.

I'm currently looking at this one from Amazon:
Amazon.com: Star Trek: The Next Generation - Complete Series: Movies & TV Amazon.com: Star Trek: The Next Generation - Complete Series: Movies & TV

But there is such a wide aray of reviews it scares me--especially for the amount of money. I am a Prime member and returns are a given if something is even slightly wrong, but I'm wondering if anyone has made a purchase of a similar stature and is really pleased with what they've gotten.

Regardless of the HD remastering I wouldn't even touch the one you posted OP. For that price I would expect a much better storgae/case/box etc. Most of the lower star reviews mention the cheap packaging, and when buying DVDs/Blu-rays that kind of thing is fairly important imo.

If you don't care about the packaging or the HD release, then go for it if you want it. If you purchase it direct from Amazon then there is no danger of it being a bootleg, and if the discs don't work like some of the reviewers have had problems with then getting a replacement will be easy. Only you know if you are willing to spend over $200 on this collection, and if it would be worth it for you though.

If those videos are anything to go by, then yes I would.

Honestly I'm not actually a fan of Star Trek, I was just offering my opinion as an avid DVD/BD collector. If I was a fan though I would be impressed by the remastering clips and would certainly hold out for the blu-rays.

Yeah the more I research the more I am thinking of just getting the Blu-ray seasons.

I'm wondering now if I should stick with my PS3 to play Blu-Rays or grab a blu-ray player.

PS3 is still one of the better blu-ray players you can get so I wouldn't bother getting a stand-alone player if I were you. I guess you could consider it if you already use your PS3 a lot and wan't to give it a rest sometimes. Otherwise save the money/buy something else. I expect the blu-ray collection of TNG will be quite a bit more than that DVD set anyway.

Sounds good mate. Thanks for the help. Appears I'm going to buy them one season at a time as they come out and simply use my PS3 which will be revived once The Last of Us comes out in April.

Again thanks for the help.

Just so you guys know, with the workload of remastering all those episodes, Paramount contracted out the even numbered seasons while they did the odd numbered ones themselves. There is a noticeable difference in the quality of the remastered seasons 1 and 2. The Paramount ones are the better looking ones. They did this so they could get them out faster to market.

Of course if you are a TNG nerd like I am, you don't need to buy them, you already have them menorized .

That's the sad truth about it, they know they can get an arm and a leg for them so they do so.

I know. And I know they would have a put a hell of a lot of work into these blu-rays, but I still think they overcharge. People will pay it though, and as long as they will they will keep charging a lot. I'm sure they will come down in price eventually, I'll just have to wait
