Customer Reviews

Too bad really.
Keri
It's either in the production or the packaging, which may have caused damage to the DVD that is causing the skipping problems.
Grandpa Clyde
It is beautiful, but to me, the contents are what matters most.

What I was able to watch of the DVDs was really great, but all of the disks started skipping part way through and I was unable to watch the complete story. I even had Amazon replace the first set I received hoping that it was a problem with that particular set, but that was not the case. The second set I got had the same problem.

It's either in the production or the packaging, which may have caused damage to the DVD that is causing the skipping problems.

These are great stories, however the "Masterworks Collection" is a rip-off. All of the disks start skipping around the second episode. Too bad really. I had to pay more to buy Bleak House and Little Dorrit seperately.

I thought I had purchased a defective set but after reading some of the reviews here I am convinced this is a poorly designed product. I cannot even describe the frustration we felt when we sat down to watch Little Dorrit and Bleak House. Every single DVD skipped and froze. It was impossible to watch. I wish I had not spent over $100 for this. My advice is not to purchase this product.

I can't believe Amazon is still selling this item. If it were not for the fact that ALL the discs are defective it would be a great deal!! I should have listened to the reviews left by others, but I trusted that Amazon must have fixed the problem and would never knowingly sell defective items. WRONG!!!!!!!! Believe me, the discs are DEFECTIVE and DO NOT WORK!!! DO NOT PURCHASE THIS ITEM!!

The discs are messed up, and freeze or skip, rendering the entire purchase a waste of time, as you'll absolutely end up asking for a refund. DO NOT PURCHASE. But the films are excellent, if you can find discs that play.

Great films, (I've seen most of them before--checked out from the public library) but packaging is still a problem--mine still came in the cardboard packaging, with the disks held in slots in the cardboard. Whether or not the packaging is the cause, the first disk I tried kept stopping and finally wouldn't play at all, so I'm returning the whole set.

I made the mistake in buying this thinking they had solved all the technical issues everyone else wrote about. They have not. This is a piece of garbage in terms of quality. The DVD's do not play and if they do, be prepared for them to freeze and then having to skip a lot of the story. Amazon should have pulled this product a long time ago and demanded it be fixed. As of May 1, 2013, this is still a problem, obviously, and do not make the same mistake I did.

The item was damaged and all DVD's were unplayable. Seller was quick to make a refund, but I am still without my movies.

Are vol 1 & 2 just repackaging of the previous Dickens vol 1 & 2? Or is there something new about them?
