It's good for 49er fans to get a release in this series, but as many reviewers have already noted, limiting the set to the 5 Super Bowl wins is a shame. With the exception of Super Bowl 23, none of the SF Super Bowls really were great games in terms of being close or exciting games, and even SB 23 was pretty dull until the 4th quarter. There are a number of truly great SF games that could have been added to easily fill out a 10 game set (The Catch I and II games, the 1989 Montana comeback win in Philly, and the 2002 playoff comeback vs. the Giants, to name just a few), as NFL Films has done for some other teams.

Perhaps it is just my copy, but the the picture and audio quality of the SB 19 disc is poor. The color is washed out and the sound is muted. The copy of the game that has generally circulated among game traders is superior, and I would recommend that if you have that one already, you may want to retain it. The quality of the other discs are much better, although the color on the SB 24 recording seems to be a little dark.

Also, if you have personal recordings of these games that include pre and/or post games shows that you want to keep, you should hang on to those recordings. The discs do not include any pre or post game materials, not even the well known farewell interview with Bill Walsh after SB 23. Each game has been edited to remove some huddles and insignificant plays so as stay under 2 hours (apparently to fit on a single dvd without further compressing the quality of the recordings).

All in all, as a 49er fan/collector, it's nice to get this set, but it is a lot less than it could have been - It doesn't seem like NFL Films put much effort into it.

I agree with the other reviews. While this is a long over due set. It is hardly complete.I mean here where have the team of the decade rewarded with just a 5 disc set.The 49ers won their first Super Bowl in 1981 and sustained their greatness for many many years after. Even being the first team to win 19 games in a season. But the bears get the full season package and i think they didn't even make the playoffs the following season. Then it was Walsh who put a guard in the backfield first but all you here is the bears and fridge. What is it with you people. And the Eagles,winners of uh, oh yeah no Super Bowls but lets give them a 10 disc set. While i will enjoy this set I am disapointed in how the NFL markets their game. The 49ers deserve to be represented the same way they have always represented the NFL. With class.

While I love a Super Bowl set, how can they shortchange the Niners--and consumers--like this? The SAME PRICE for 1/2 the games that other, less accomplished teams get to have featured? I would love to hear the explanation for that one....

I'm hoping that there are sets in the works for teams with lots of Super Bowl wins that include other games. A valid Niners set would have to include:

- the 1981 NFC Championship game vs the Cowboys "the catch"

- the dramatic 1983 playoff game vs the Lions

- the 1988 playoff drubbing of the Vikings

- the 1988 NFC Championship game win in Chicago

- the 1990 divisional round win against the Redskins

- the 1994 NFC Championship game win over the Cowboys

- the 2001 Wild Card shoot-out win over the Giants (a great game even with the controversial endng)

Look there- I'm not a 49ers fan, and I named 7 games that I'd imagine a Niners fan would love to have just off the top of my head. I'm sure more research would reveal lots more. Montana had innumerable dramatic regular season performances, and there was a great Steve Young comeback in Philly one year, if I'm remembering correctly.

Other teams like the Raiders and Redskins who have multiple Super Bowl wins have been rewarded with sets of just the three Super Bowl wins, while the Bears got a FULL SEASON and the Eagles, who have NO Super Bowl wins just got a loving 10 DISC set!!! I'm happy for the fans of those teams, but GADS! It's almost like the Raiders and 'Skins fans are being punished for rooting for a successful team. And now it looks like the 49ers have joined the ranks with this 5 disc set. All three of these teams desreve the full 10 disc treatment, like the Packers, Cowboys, and Giants got (and PLEASE improve on the lame Vikings set).

This series is great but it is missing some key games like the 1980 49er vs. saints, the game in which the 49ers came back from being down by alot to winning. The 1981 NFC championship game against Dallas. I still look forward to this set but having seen the dallas cowboys greatest game series. they included superbowl and championship games as well as a few playoff games. they have 10 games in their set. I still look forward to seeing Superbowl 16-29 and it will be good. maybe warner could release the nfc championship game on a disk of it own like the Philadelphia eagles 1980 nfc championship game.

Why do teams like the Giants, Eagles and Cowboys have bigger sets. Where is the 1981 NFC Championship? 1994 NFC Championship? 1998 wildcard win vs Green Bay?

I mean it's not a bad set, but I think teams like the Steelers, Raiders, 49ers and Redskins got snubbed just because they won alot of SB's. They have way better histories than the Eagles. And they had alot of other great games outside of the Super Bowls.

Great DVD set of all 5 of the 49ers SB victories. These are the original network broadcasts of these games. Just a reminder to all the people who think the quality is poor. The quality is what it is, we didn't have HD broadcasts back then. The disc of SBXIX is grainy and the audio isn't that great but to have this game on disc is fine with me. GO NINERS!!!

I ordered this boxset today despite some of the negative reviews. Ive been a fan of the 49ers since the NFL came to British tv screens for the first time in late 1982. To me it was a no brainer that I had to get these dvds. For years I have found it baffling that NFL films had such a lock on what was released to the general public as opposed to dvd or vhs releases of games from the network channels like CBS, NBC etc. In England, important football (or soccer!) games that take place are later released for the public to buy. Its par for the course and has been since the advent of video. Only recently has that begun to happen in the States. As an example, when I bought the Team of the Decade 88 yearbook for the 49ers long long ago, I think the tape ran for about 50 minutes. No lengthy footage was given to any of the games including the bloody superbowl! For years I believe that fans in the US have been shortchanged by NFL films. In my opinion NFL films should compliment the network broadcasts rather than being the only archive footage sold.

As for the dvds I take on board and accept totally what people are saying. A five disc set is ludicrous for the 49ers. For me, the greatest performance may just be the NFC championship destruction of the Bears in their own backyard. But there are LOADS of other matches that deserve a place in this set and supposedly it is volume one. At the end of the day it is the whole games, it is the original network broadcasts, it is the superbowls and it is the 49ers from their greatest (up to this point) period. We have been short changed for so long that for me this is an essential buy. Now bring on volume two!

Good to have the full super bowls together, but this set is shortchanged by not having other key playoff games included, like some of the other team sets. If they ever do a version 2, my choices for additional games would be:

1) 1981 NFC Championship game vs Dallas (actually played Jan 82)
2) 1994 NFC Championship game vs Dallas (Jan 95)
3) 1994 regular season win vs Dallas
4) 1988 NFC Championship game vs Chicago (Jan 89)
5) 1998 Playoff win vs Packers (TO TD on final play)

I'm a ny Giant fan; however, I have pre-ordered this 49ers set because, as an NFL fan, I really enjoyed watching the San Francisco 49ers, especially during their Superbowl years. This is a great set, but I am also disappointed that this was not a ten game set (like the Giants, Eagles, and Cowboys) or a 12 game set (like the Bears). The 49ers were involved in so many great games (I won't list them because it has already been done in other reviews) and it makes no sense that some of the non-Superbowl games were not included. I guess we can only hope that a subsequent set will be issued.
