So what's new? Just ONE thing: the packaging. This set takes up MUCH less room on your shelf than the old collection (it's about 2 inches wide). Everything else is the same as far as I can tell... the dvd's are exact copies of what was already released (I was kinda hoping for less annoying menus, oh well).
One minor problem is with the slim double-DVD cases: they don't hold the discs in place securely, and discs will often fall out when opening the case.
So the verdict? If you like "Are You Being Served?" and don't already own the collection, this is a very good deal... I paid much more for this set several years back. Do you already own the older set? Then stick with it, unless the shelf space that it takes up is driving you crazy.
Other than that the cds are great.
When we originally received the discs, they were fine for the first play-through. They discs were handled gently and replaced in the cases as soon as they were removed from the DVD player. After finishing the series, the entire set sat on the shelf for a couple of years. When I wanted to start watching the shows again, I was dismayed to find that disc after disc had problems. Ranging from glitchy playback to discs that simply wouldn't play anymore, the poor quality of this product was extremely disappointing. I've had the odd single DVD fail after years of use, but when I have problems on half the discs from a set, it seems indicative of overall poor product quality.
I really wanted to purchase the set to be able to watch these shows, but I'm fearful of getting another low-quality product.
