This is a win!
on June 5, 2015
I waffled on whether to buy this since the reviews were hit and miss, but I watched every disc and had no problems. I’d never have known it was a UK export. I had concerns about some of the other customer reviews, so for anyone who wants to know:
1. I have a US Blu-ray player, and every disc ran fine. I suspect that some people had problems because their firmware is not up to date. (If your blu-ray player has wi-fi, you’ll probably be fine.)
2. The discs run at 1080p. The pilot episode is a bit grainy, but all the rest have a great picture. It’s a softer HD than most movies use (probably because it was shot for TV) but it’s MUCH cleaner than DVD or even HDTV quality.
3. The menu always gave me the chance to resume and picked up right where it left off.
4. The menu of Season 1 is hard to navigate because they picked a bad highlight color, but the other 6 seasons’ menus are fine.
I honestly thought this deal had to be too good to be true, but I’ve got no complaints.
