I watched this over the weekend. The disc contains three different "vignettes" of underwater marine life titled "Sunrise," "Mediterranean," and "Caribbean." They all contain the usual reef marine life including, but not limited to, corals, sponges, anemones, clown fish, damsels, angels, and a variety of tangs. Even has the occational sea shrimp.

All sequences are static scenes, no pan & scan, no narration. There is an accompanying musical score which was written especially for this disk by the award winning Gutleut Studios in Frankfurt, Germany which ebbs and flows along with the scenes and the accompanying ocean sounds.

The total running time of the entire disc is 114 minutes. Each of the three scenes last 38, 33, and 43 minutes respectively. It is shot in 4K resolution with the audio track presented in 5.1 DTS-HD High-Res Audio Surround Sound. Picture quality in my opinion is near perfect - you can distinguish the floating particulate and plankton in the water. The near neon color of fish is extremely well represented.

Having owned a 180 gallon saltwater "marine" aquarium for 15 years I can say that nothing is more immersive than the real thing! However, having said that, this is the next best thing and is EXTREMELY more affordable . After I initially watched this. I replayed it and sat in my favorite chair to enjoy a little reading. I found myself constantly looking away from my book to enjoy and take in the sights and sounds of the "virtual" aquarium being presented on my screen. If you've ever owned an aquarium you know exactly what I am referring to.

At any rate, overall, I would give this a 4.5 out of 5.0 for PQ & AQ and recommened it to all...especially if you want an ocean experience on a goldfish bowl budget!

This DVD is the typical aquarium DVD except on blu-ray. I was not especially impressed. I've owned 4 now...still looking for a good one.

I immediately noticed an annoying buzz and pops on one of the sound tracks.

Though it is hi-def, the depth of field is very shallow so much of the image is out of focus.

It appears to be an amateur production. I'm returning this to Amazon.

It has three aquarium choices...and that is it for the options. No way to turn off the audio.

Why does every aquarium DVD producer think we want to hear this new age music along with the video? And why do they never show the whole aquarium? So you get fish going on and off the screen. I want a virtual high-def aquarium...which means aquarium sounds and a view of the entire aquarium - minus the edges. This music is annoying.

My blu-ray player is a PS3, and with many game titles you have the option of playing your own music while you are also playing the game. That is what I am looking for. A virtual high-def aquarium with aquarium sounds, mixed with my own playlist of songs from the PS3 hard drive.

I have a Sony 1080p/24p LCD Tv and the quality on this Blu-Ray is awesome! Its not a pan type shot. It is a still camera pov. Lots of colorful fish. I am having a party at my house next weekend and i plan on playing this during the party. The only thing i did not like is the lack of set-up features-none. The main menu has the 3 locations to play and you check the ones you want to play back to back but you DO NOT get a repeat option unless you have one on your BRD player. Otherwise a perfect display of BRD 1080p!

Our living room is tiny and our furniture faces a giant plasma screen TV. It is hard to sit in front of it when it is off and ignore it- it is like a gaping black hole-but when friends are over and it is on, it kills the conversation and steals the attention. The aquarium DVD gives a nice ambient glow and is relaxing to look at, but easy to ignore, much like a real fish tank. There are cute little crabs and lots of other neat aquatic creatures, and the colors are amazing. We watch it on mute because it plays sleepy, ambient music. My niece can't ignore the TV when she is here but when I turn on a show she ignores everything else, and the aquarium DVD entertains and inspires her without being all-encompassing. I

This Blu-ray has 3 "aquariums" which unfortunately only one looks really good while the others were OK. This reminds me of the screen saver application from the yester-years which looked great on a monitor to stop coworkers in their tracks and gaze at your screen. Here, the concept does not work as well. Why? Well, I was hoping for some diver swimming and taking High-Def underwater footage. I wanted to feel like it was a personal journey into the great depths. Granted this is probably as real as it gets to having a fish tank, I was just hoping for something more lively.

On the plus side, there was a blue fish on the first "tank" which kept chasing other fish around which provided some laughter. At times the lighting made it look so real that I had to get close to my TV and stare in awe. I'm curious to see how it looks on a higher end TV like a 50"+ OLED or LED using a Digital cable. I'm using a 42" Sammy TOC with 120Mhz on HDMI hooked up to my PS3. So overall, it's great for just a virtual "tank" to having looping on your TV with guest over or when you need relaxing images and music when alone.
