    Its good, it has a lot of technical issues, but a lot of it looks very good, while the rest looks fine. Some of it is amazing, and ALL of it is great in terms of content. I love the box set, very nice.

    Well, its not on the top list for a few reasons, the lists over there and in general are pretty technical, there are quite a few technical aspects of the Box set that are pretty problematic, there are numerous banding issues, along with black levels and a few other things like sharpness, etc.

    Over all it looks very amazing in many parts, and the content its self is awesome... just awesome, but technically it has lots of problems, which is why its not on the top tier of the AVS list.

    I watch it on BBC HD and when people come round and ask what HD is all about, that is one of the things i show them. I will be getting this but it is not out here unti the end of October.

    Nice...so when are people going to learn to write it properly:

    Blu-ray

    Uppercase "B"
    Hyphen between "Blu" and "ray"
    Lowercase "r"

    Blimey, even the title of the forum is incorrect as well!

    Ya, it's mostly ok. I wish they wouldn't have crammed 3 episodes per 25 gig disk. Most of those problems are from compression.

    I watched the First CD last night, and WOW some parts a beautiful.

    Examples.

    The shark eating the seal in slow mo

    The HUGE water fall in Brazil

    umm. The time lapse of the flowers growing

    The tropical forest underwater (SOO VIBRANT)

    And the ice underwater

    Yeah it suffers from a lot of compression problems thats for sure. They should have used all BD50s, not 25s. And they should have taken a bit more time, there isn't much excuse for banding issues, I guess it was just pushed out the door a little too early.

    The BBC have delayed releasing Region 2 Planet Earth until mid-November. Maybe they are fixing the technical issues?

    I guess they show the content of the movie, but not the quality.... what camera are you using and what settings? I guess its too hard to do it justice, because we see it through the image, compression, internet, and then our computer screens which are totally different displays than your TV. That and the poor lighting inside houses and such.
