When I saw that "Desperate Housewives" was coming in a boxed set format, I immediately sold my 7 individual sets on Eb@y and pre-ordered this set. I am SO glad I did.
The box is not wood, as many people on message boards have been asking. However, it is a very sturdy, thick, pressed cardboard (one of the sturdiest box sets I've seen) covered with a beautiful glossy finish. Inside you will find the individual season sets in the dreaded thin slip cases. I know many people complain about these, but really, I have never had any discs that came in this type of holder to be permanently damaged. I have had some surface scuffs in the past, but nothing that ever affected the playback. The individual seasons are the same as the previous releases, with all the same features, just in these slip cases. The artwork on these slip cases are not of the previous releases...these match each other...but the artwork on the discs all appear to be from the previous releases. I would also like to note that I have had no issues as far as glue being on the discs, discs being dislodged, or any of the issues that I have noticed in other reviews. Perhaps I lucked up with a good, clean set...?Read more ›
Great show- awful packaging...and isn't the packaging the whole point of a Complete Collection???
Edit: After arguing with customer service twice, I was able to get most of my money back. I had to pay $20 for a new set. I will certainly be testing these out before 30 days runs up to avoid that scam again.
Second edit: after receiving a second set, many discs were still broken. However, they were different than those that were broken in the first set. By combining the two sets, I now have a full working set. The second set also did not have glued discs like the first one did. I would suggest ordering 2 sets of you would really like this set and doing what I did. Return the broken set. A quick way to test them is to simply "play all" and press fast forward. The broken discs will stop halfway (or less) through an episode. This review aside, this is my all time favorite show and a day does not go by without me watching it. I just wish they would have used better quality discs to avoid this frustration.
One more thing: I bought a black cd holder case off of amazon and put the discs into it because the cd cases of the DH set are really cheap/flimsy. The discs slide around which would make them get scratched.

I love this show. And was excited to get it in the mail. I began watching them and then my discs started skipping mid episode. At first I thought the disc was scratched or dirty. Read morePublished 4 months ago by JerseyJay
