It is heavy and well made with gold colored edges. The DVDs are better protected too because they snap into the book and do not get scratched up due to the sliding in the small edition. I own both boxsets so I can confidently tell you the differences. The content itself artwork wise and DVD wise are exactly the same. If you are lucky enough to find one for sale get it before its sold as this is a highly sought after edition! Very rare. I highly recommend this edition.
(Original post) I love the special edition box. Any fan would geek out with it, especially since it has pages from the book of shadows
But I've had several episodes that won't play properly. They'll start in the middle or later. Plus, the disc with the last 2 episodes of the series won't play at all. Haven't tried the bonus disc yet. Am disappointed in the fact that I've had to skip several episodes and now the last 2.
The dvd's (as everyone has stated) do slide in and out of cardboard. Each time you pull one out or put it back in you get this SINKING feeling that you're damaging the discs somehow. I pulled a few out to look at them and I have to admit some of them did NOT look good. There were scratches or some sort of small speckled substance on them. I decided to put one of the WORST looking ones in the dvd player (or bluray player in my case) just to see what would happen before I attempted to clean it. I was SURE that there would be problems playing this because the disc looked terrible. Guess what? I watched the entire thing and there were no problems playing it. I was kind of shocked. I suspect that some folks DVD players are able to read discs better than other dvd players. I really do NOT feel like going through ALL of these discs right at the moment, but I will have to do it soon before time runs out.
The transfers for both video and audio quality are great as I expected. From what I've seen so far, there is no music deletion from the show (which surprises me). This show would always start with a song while we got to see VERY COOL aerial shots of San Francisco leading up to the first act after the epilogue. Like I said, from what I've watched so far, it's all there. One thing that I don't like is I noticed that there is no "play all" feature! What I mean by that is on the disc I'm watching now, there are FOUR episodes. You simply choose which episode you want to watch. If you start with the first one, once it ends the next episode should play, right? It doesn't. It goes back to the menu and you have to manually choose the next episode. For the life of me I can't figure out why some dvd releases allow you to do an "episode selection" or just "play all" while others just allow the episode selection only. I suppose if your DVD player has a "repeat entire disc" function that it will play the entire disc on its own, but most dvd players I've used only allow to repeat title or chapter and not entire disc.
It's too bad they couldn't have used softer materials that hold the dvd's themselves while leaving the book material the same.
So once it got here I took every disk out and checked it. Some had little glue bits on it. I used my finger nail and they came off. I then took a damp towel and cleaned them. I did notice that the cardboard sleeves are not ideal, but if you are careful with it its not go bad. I am on season 5 and have not had one problem. There was one disc that was much worse then the others I cleaned. I almost couldn't get all the glue off. I was anxious about playing that one. Once I got to it though there were NO PROBLEMS. What a relief.
One of the things that made me buy this version with the 'bad rep' was how wonderful amazon is with returns. I knew that if I was unlucky and got a severely damaged and un playable disk(s) then they would work with me until the matter was settled.
So my advice is that if you want this season desperately and are willing to chance it like I did. THen buy through amazon. Check your disks, clean them gently if you have to, and watch them to make sure they are okay and don't skip.
All and all I have 4 out of 5 stars because there was a little glue (it took me no time to clean it off) and the disk jacket is not ideal for DVDs. However I am so happy to have the product and have a cute little book of shadows memorabilia.
