It's hard to hear what anyone's saying.

I own seasons 1-9 and I was impressed at the quality of the picture and sound on the dvd sets.

Paramount/CBS has really screwed up on Season 10 of Hawaii 5-0.

The tenth season of HFO has absolutely NOT been remastered. I bought this for Christmas thinking that it would be the same quality as all the other seasons. Boy was I wrong. I've seen VHS tapes taken from old television reruns that look and sound better than these dvd's. This whole season reeks of being thrown together overnight, and they want $37.00 for this garbage! I feel like I've been totally scammed here. This effort would be worth 5 or 6 dollars at best. Save your money, don't get ripped off.

Edit: They have since raised the price to $39.00. Nice.

I have purchased and own all of the previous nine seasons of Hawaii Five-O.This is perhaps the best television series ever made.My ultimate goal was to eventually own the entire series on dvd...all 12 seasons.I own many other CBS/Paramount dvd set releases of television series and movies.The quality has always been top notch.I have often told friends how the remastering of older tv shows by CBS/Paramount has been beyond belief !!!.Bright,sharp,crisp,vivid,clear and colorful images that simply pop off the screen.It all ends with the tenth season release of Hawaii Five-O by CBS/Paramount.A transfer that one would expect from a two bit unknown studio. Either Hawaii Five O went from recording on film (to) video tape for season 10,which would explain the sub standard video quality,or it is a poor transfer from CBS/Paramount.Season 10 was released unusually soon after season 9,no doubt to increase sales due to the popular new Hawaii Five O,and benefit from Christmas sales.But if they took a shortcut on the remastering of season 10 due to this,shame on you CBS/Paramount.You will lose many loyal customers,and also your reputation.

As an avid Five-0 fan, I eagerly await each new release. The video quality of season 10 is so poor that you would expect to find it in the $5 bargain bin at Wal-Mart. This is a slap in the face to all of the faithful that have purchased the first 9 seasons. At first I thought I was having a problem with my equipment. After testing the collection on two different systems as well as a PC I realized that CBS & Paramount had ripped me off. It's too bad this wasn't produced by a reputable company like Disney. When they release old films they have truly remastered them.

Paramount/CBS has really screwed up on Season 10 of Hawaii 5-0.
The audio is terrible. The volume level is way too low.
There is no depth to the audio even when you turn it up on your monitor.
This set should be recalled and redone! The previous 9 seasons were well done, but they really messed up on this one.

I grew up watching Hawaii Five-O. It was my all time favorite series. I own seasons 1-9 and I was impressed at the quality of the picture and sound on the dvd sets. Season 9 was packaged in a low budget lousy way even though the quality of the dvd's was great. Season 10 is like something you would find in a dollar store!!! Wow, what happened? The picture is terrible and the sound is even worse. I noticed on the low budget packaging that the dvd's were made in Mexico. None of the other sets have this listed on them. CBS must have outsourced to a third rate company to handle such an important project. Why would CBS put out such a bad product just after launching the very successful remake of Hawaii Five-O that is now the best show on TV??? It is not very enjoyable to watch season 10 like this. I would even wait for CBS to get it right and purchase season 10 done right. Shame on CBS. Jack Lord was a perfectionist and gave his all to make Hawaii Five-O the best show ever. He must be rolling over in his grave!

I must agree with other posts that this release is far sub-par. I own all previous seasons, enjoy them and applaud CBS/Paramount for their release. Viewing season 10 makes me appreciate the other seasons even more. Picture quality varies, but never reaches what I expect from a remastered dvd. The sound is terrible. Audio levels vary within scenes. Interference/hiss are distracting at times; certainly more noticeable than on any other season in this series. One can only speculate as to the reason for this quality dive. Perhaps a new remaster team (or none at all). Perhaps a rush job to cash in on the new television hit. Whatever the case, there can be reasons but no excuses.

The episodes themselves are enjoyable, but not as good as earlier seasons. You can read other reviews for highlights and missteps. That's subjective. There does seem to be consensus that the video and audio quality leave much to be desired. CBS/Paramount should recall/redo/refund/exchange.

Will CBS/Paramount ever learn that the fans of classic tv shows are not stupid ?? .... I have read all the reviews of this season of Hawaii Five O and cannot believe that this studio has tried to pull a fast one again .... I cannot believe they didn't learn from there mess of "The Fugitive" Seasons 2 & 3 .... The back lash that they received from that mess was unreal .... But did they learn from that ?? .... It looks like the answer is NO .... I bought season 10 and have watched just one episode so far but I agree with all who put up 1 star reviews about the video and audio quality .... The picture to me does look washed out and I had to have my tv volume on 43 to hear it clear .... And to really cheap out I think having all the discs in one package instead of the way it was packaged before with the three seperate sleeves and the synopsis of each episode on the back is really weak .... Maybe someday this lousy studio will put out a show right from start to finish and quit thinking that the public who buy these DVD sets wont notice that they released them the cheap way .... For once CBS/Paramount look at what people are saying about your products and remember these people know what there talking about .... Get it right for a change .... Don't do to this classic series what you did to "The Fugitive" .... Your buying public and fans of these classic shows deserve better ....
