Don't Cheap Out,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Frasier: The Complete Series (DVD)
I hope everyone considering buying this set reads this before doing os.
DO NOT succumb to the ultra-low-priced version of this DVD set. It comes from China, and the possibility that it will have one or more bad discs is extremely high. We've found at least one bad disc in every season. They simply won't play in ANY of the DVD players we have in the house (and we have three standalone players, and six in PCs. None of these DVD readers would work on the bad discs.
Further, there is NOTHING on the CDs except the episodes. If there are extras (like blooper reels and such), we ain't seen any yet. Lastly, the menus are just barely there (and look like they're home-made.
Pay the money and get the retail US-made/produced version. You have been warned.

Thanks for the tip! Are you saying the USA version has extras? Where can I buy the one made in the USA? How can I tell where it was made before I buy? (amazon doesn't specify) Thanks!

The menus were never that special, they were always relatively simple looking. They had pictures of a cast member and the episode list (when I got them from Netflix, that's what the menus looked like).
What I don't understand is if this box set is purely the season DVDs being packaged together, how are the extras not there? Like Frasier: The Complete Second Season Season 2 has this whole list of special features, and I don't understand how it can just disappear...

I bought this in January and I am on season three. Season two had lots of skips on them and three out of four on season three would not play! I examined the disks and found scratches on them, they are brand new why are there scratches on them? I am affraid to open anymore.
I tried to give a small company business but i should have go to the big guys.
