I will add that I found it interesting that they threw in the first two episodes of Season 3. I just hope that doesn't mess up the flow of future releases in any way, and I really hope it doesn't mean this is as good as it gets. Also, the episodes were out of order on Disc 3, but I was just glad to see they were all there.
Thanks, Sony, and keep them coming because I personally feel that this great show really starts taking off in Season 3.
This is just preliminary review. I will amend with updates.
While I do recognize that this is a DVD-R, one can expect the discs not to have scratches. Unfortunately this expectation was wrong. Disc 1 and Disc 2 (out of 3) were scratched. I do not know what the quality of playback is yet, as have just received the package 30 minutes ago.
The DVD case will not stay securely shut due to the bottom tab being snapped off. So far, every expectation has fallen through. The product did not come with ANY inserts or even episode list. This is a VERY bare bones offering. Unfortunately, this is the only way to get the second season without resorting to alternative means. Hopefully playback will be trouble free.

After having a chance to actually view several episodes, I am somewhat irritated and displeased. While the episodes are very clear when they play, I have had some glitches and picture freezes on 2 of 3 DVD players.
The first DVD player (Panasonic) would not recognize any of the 3 discs. I next tried a Sony DVD player which met with better success, but had several freezes. The third DVD player (a generic cheap POS) played the discs with the same glitches and freezes as mentioned before.
Spending the ~$30 for this quality of product is exceptionally frustrating. I would need to think long and hard before purchasing again. $20 would be more appropriate.
The episodes are crisp and clear, though i'd take 1 star off for the presentation of the 3 disc set, the First Season had the full color Benson logo from the Disc cover on the DVD's and a nicely done menu on the discs, Season 2 has only the Title on the DVD's and what looks like a made from home DVD makers menu, listing only the Episodes names.
In my opinion the series deserved better from the producers of the 2nd season, and i hope they learn for the 3rd-9th seasons, which i heartily look forward to.
I should not need to point out, but i will, that both Rene and Ethan both went on the great things as Odo in Star Trek DS9 and Nelix in Star Trek Voyager, 2 very fine actors to make those roles their own.
I hope that the following seasons come quickly.
Next Season Didi Conn, who was in Grease, comes in as Bensons secretart Denise, replacing Caroline McWilliams (Marcy Hill)Benson - Season 2
