A number of reviews have commented negatively on the video quality. I find that they present themselves just fine on my 64" TV. Yes, they are a tad grainy and obviously not shot in HD, but the video qualtity does not really impair the viewing experience, and they are certainly light-years ahead of VHS.
The packaging is also nice, with all of the discs in individual cases, two discs per case. The menus on each disc are easy to navigate, allowing the viewer to select clearly identifiable segments of each particular show. For any fan of history, firearms, or both, this collection is a must.

I'm not normally a fan of history, but this set is well worth it. Fascinating, accurate. Watch one episode and you'll be hooked. It's that good.
