Huge sturdy box - some will love it, and others would have to find space to place it.

Good show, good set. I was concerned about the quality of the box, since many reviews were highly negative about it. Turns out a very sturdy box, that would fool quite a few people into thinking it's real wood. Box has a heft to it and real brass hinges, it's really should not be a concern to anyone.
- the supplied poster book does not fit into box, so you have to store it separately
- box is huge. The dimensions are 14x7.5x6 inches. Collectors and devotees of the show would love it. Casual fans, like myself will struggle to find a shelf space big enough to accommodate it. There is lots of wasted space. Blu-ray set contains 25 disks, but there are 42 slots in the box to fit in paper cards and fake blood slides. So the box could be almost half the size and still fit the entire 8 seasons plus bonus disk.
- Assembly is required. This is minor, but when you get the package, there is outer cover, that you would have to discard, then the box itself and the disks are housed in the temporary small container within the box. It takes good 10 minutes to slide them all into slots within a box. I almost wished the carton box that the disks are stored in temporarily would have more finished look, so I would put that on shelf and not the box.
For casual fans, especially if you already running out of space to store all your Blu-Rays, this gift set would be a mixed blessing. I really wish they would release just a regular, no thrills compact Blu-Ray set that I can use to watch the show.
