Buy the stand-alone blu-ray disks...

"This set is bizarre and seems thrown together from an odds & ends bin of spare parts. Inside the exterior "trunk", the disks come in two different sizes of folding cases that do not at all resemble a product family. You're really stuck storing all of the disks in this case forever because none of the disks has sufficient labeling to be on the shelf by themselves.
For uniformities sake, I'd much have preferred to buy the 5 blu-ray disks individually- especially knowing that another three movies will have to be purchased to complete this "set" in the future."
Very Cool Box Set

"I know many people want to wait for the box that will come out after the 7th movie, but as I want to watch the movies again prior to 2010, this made for an excellent hold over until then.
The box itself looks and feels like an old piece of luggage and there are lots of fun things inside. Each movie comes as a two disc set enclosed in a case resembling a text book. There are two extra "books", the interactive DVD game and an disc full of Harry Potter extras (various short documentaries for each film).
In addition to the DVDs, the box also contains trading cards and bookmarks. The cards are very cool, but the bookmarks are the highlight of the extras. They are of metal construction and are very detailed. There are bookmarks of Hedwig, Harry's Broom, a Golden Snitch, Gryffindor Shield, and Voldemort's Prophecy.
If you don't want to wait until after The Deathly Hallows or you just want a really impressive set to collect, I highly recommend you pick this up."
Extended Versions, Please

"I have to agree. As owner of the first four movies, and as I sit here watching an "extended version" on Disney channel, I would love to see WB come out with a set of the "directors cuts" or "extended versions". I love the movies, but as I watch these extended versions, I can't help but think that I'm being cheated out of key scenes when I watch my theatrical versions. Please, next time you do a special edition, make it the extended/director's cut."
Picked up the set today

"While I'm new to HD DVD's, from the few I've seen, I'm very impressed with this set. Going from the first 2 movies seen so far, the graphics are VERY crisp and clear, so much though that sometimes you can see the difference between live actors and the CGI sets, something more blurred out from the less sharp DVD's.
The sound is great, after watching 'Phantom of the Opera' by ALW, I was a little disappointed in its sound, and was hoping that the HP set was not as bad, and I was happy to find that the sound was great!
Extras, the three plus hours of extras on the bonus DVD is nice, there's a card set that's like the cards in the 'Chocolate Frogs' which comes in the envelope invitation to Hogwarts in the first movie. A very impressive bookmarker set within with a flying broom letter opener, three bookmarker in the shape of a owl, seeker ball and the snake symbol from the second movie as well as a Gryffindor badge. All in steel and would I think cost a bit if sold separately.
It all comes in a nice box that's shaped like Harry's trunk, everything nicely packaged and sweet. As for the price, if your want all five movies you're already looking at $130+ for the HD versions, so if you can afford it, this is a cheaper way to go and one of the better Limited Edition Box Set's as I've seen, whether it's HD, regular DVD's or VHS."
