5.0 out of 5 stars For the fan not the fanatic, January 1, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Harry Potter Years 1-6 Gift Set (Widescreen Edition) (DVD)
While I value all posted opinions of this product I strongly disagree with the notion that this product is dumb. For anyone who has waited many long years and not purchased any of the movies until now, or anyone who was hooked later in the series, this set is a real value. All the released movies are bundled neatly together and they don't consume much space in my movie library because of the slim packaging.

This set is certainly not for the collector as there is no bonus material whatsoever. This is fine for us as we generally never watch the second disc anyway. If you have been waiting to buy or are new to the series and you don't mind the lack of bonus material this set really makes it easy to start your collection.

If this does not describe what you are looking for then I suggest you do as the other reviewers have suggested and look elsewhere or wait till the complete set releases in several years. For what this product is however (all current movies/no frills), this is a great set.

***Update***

W. Price has educated me that this review shows on the Blu Ray page for this movie as well. He has correctly noted the following.

"Just a note, since this review is cross-posted on the Blu-ray version: the Blu-ray discs *do* include some bonus features (deleted scenes, documentaries, etc.) accessible from the menu button. However, they're easy to miss because there is no title menu and the movie begins playing immediately."(W. Price Nov. 28, 2010 10:28 AM PST)

For clarifications sake, my reivew is of the DVD VERSION.

Yeah I agree with you. Waiting for the super ultimate edition with all the extended cut versions of the movies... well, you're going to be waiting an awfully long time. I don't really mind not having all of the extras. I saw the movies in the theater and I have no issues with the theatrical releases. This isn't like Lord of the Rings which had tons of content cut. For those, I will wait until they release the extended versions on Blu-Ray.

thank you for letting me know there is no bonus material - that's what we live for.

For this price you can buy this now, and sell it on ebay and buy the complete set with frills in a few years, and probably make all your money back on this set! I would like the bonus features, but for this price, I will wait for the deluxe complete set, and just get these videos for now :)

I absolutely agree! I was just saying yesterday that I want to sit down and watch all the HP movies again as I get ready to see #7. This set is cheaper than renting all the movies individually and by purchasing the set I can watch at my leisure and not worry about late fees at Blockbuster.

Thanks for the note. I have not followed this review since I wrote it a year ago. I have updated my review to include the info you have mentioned in your comment. I thought it was fair to give you the credit so I included your quote and sited you as the source. I also clarified that my reivew is of the DVD version.
