he positives include a really handsome package (though it's saddled with cardboard sleeves that make extricating the actual discs very difficult), newly color timed video presentations, a surplus of bonus material, including a lengthy book included in the package, as well as lots of audio options. The two negatives are that we're almost certainly dealing with upscales and that some of the audio options are lossy. So each consumer is going to have to weigh these attributes to decide whether or not they want to spring for this generously appointed but still fairly pricey set. I will put in my two cents' worth, which will no doubt raise the ire of some videophiles. I do not find at least two of the video presentations here to be the soul crushing abominations some have alleged, and I truly have to wonder how much native high definition sources could have helped what have always been pretty rough looking source elements. Make of that what you will, and decide according to your own tolerances and stash of cash.
