Great Season But Image Quality is lacking,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: CSI: NY: Season 8 (DVD)
Season 8 has it's flaws creatively, but it is definitely one of the better seasons for sure.
However, the one thing that bothered me about this DVD set was the image quality. Compared to past seasons of CSI:NY and even this year's releases of CSI and CSI:MIAMI, season eight of CSI:NY has a noticeable dip in quality, possibly due to excessive image compression. Some images are blocky (artifacting) and some jagged images (aliasing) appears in some of the action/tracking shots. I know that this problem isn't because of my equipment, as I own (and tested) the other CSI shows and seasons on the same gear with no other problems.
A curious problem to an otherwise great DVD set.
If this sort of thing doesn't bother you (and admittedly, after two episodes or more, your eye adjusts) by all means get the this set; CSI:NY is a wonderful show. However, its image quality does hurt the overall presentation.

the last season (no.7) had it too, at least mine did, I think Paramount no longer cares about quality control.

it's because they used 4.68 GB DVD's instead of the Duel Layer ones

I am currently watching "Miami's" final season, they didn't do it there...I wonder why "NY"?
