It is a nice box, and all 14 albums (16 cd's) fit in it, with 2 coasters with the box photo on it, and 1 poster of the 14 albums. The CD's themselves are in the original gatefold LP vinyl covers, and are in cellophane like the records. The price on this was right for me (I got really good sale price), much cheaper than purchasing these separately ($12.50 a disc).
One downfall is the small printing of the lyrics, and the lack of artwork available on the CD remasters. Secondly, the only live album here is the UMMAGUMMA live set. The Delicate Sounds of Thunder and Pulse are not included. Neither are the greatest hits selections of Relics, A Great Collection of Dance Songs, and Works. I purchased these separately.
Novelty notes: I just discovered after cycling through the discs, UMAGUMMA disc one and disc two are mis-labled and reversed on the CD printing. Secondarily, the second disc of the wall cd sleeve is misprinted. The lyrics are side 3/side3, rather than side 3/side 4. The Pink Floyd Website has an e-mail address to send your information to to get a correct sleeve listing. Thes two things show how painstakingly they put this box together!!!! This makes it special to me due to the show of overt greadiness of the record company that they would not check the labeling before producing 10000 copies.
Overall, worth getting if you have not purchased the previous editions of these albums, but if you want more artwork, and easilly legable lyrics, then purchase the albums separately in the last series of re-masters. I'm happy with the set, and I hope you are too.
***Update 1-20-2013*** My original review stands as it does, but in October 2011 Pink Floyd re-released there entire catolog again in the "discovery" series, and they are putting together another box set of their studio albums. I finally broke down and bought it at a very discounted rate to actaully physcially see how each album is different. After Listening to it and seeing how it is put together, if you want to buy the complete Pink Floyd catalog, either set will do. It is mastered differently (but I myself do not note much difference), and the is still mini lp sleeves, but the care to the tracks and discs appear to have no mistakes with labeling discs or sleves, but the sleves are still very tight to get discs out of. There are 13 page artwork/lyric books with each of the discs, and there is a nice 60 page artwork book, story book that was included in it. Overall, I after adding the discovery set to my collection, I am very surprised that this box set album cover replicas are better qulity, and the poster and costers were nice, but the expanded artwork to each disc and the 60 pagebook (as well as the price) make it a better choice at this time.
