Not a good purchase for several reasons

"First, House is still in production for at least this current sixth season, so when the series does end you can probably expect a "Complete Series" set with extras not in the individual five season sets that are simply being bundled together here.
Second, buying separately is a better deal. Seasons one through four are easily found for around twenty dollars a season and season five for a little more than that if you are willing to shop around.
It is true that the original Season One was on dual sided discs, but season one is being reissued next month on single-sided discs, so you can easily escape that problem. I was burned by the original dual-sided season one set, so I can advise you avoid it.
I obtain my three star rating as follows:
House as a series is thoroughly entertaining. I could watch Dr. Greg House watch paint dry and feel like it was time well spent, so I give the first five seasons 5/5 stars.
This is not a good deal any way you look at it - as a completist or a bargain hunter, so for value I give it 1/5 stars.
Averaging the two scores together I give this set 3/5 stars."
Let the Buyer Beware

"I should say that I bought the boxed set for seasons 1-4 and I bought season five separately, but if the producer is the same for this newest box set, you'd be better off buying the set at a store with a generous return policy.
When I got my set, I was thrilled. Then, as I played through each season, I started to see skipped scenes and freezing and episodes starting in the middle instead of at the beginning. In two cases, I didn't get to see the resolution of the cases at all.
Because it takes so long to watch all the episodes, by the time I realized there was a problem it was too late to return the set. I notice that the set I bought is no longer being produced; I assume that the manufactor is simply making seasons 1-5 instead.
To pay $100.00 for defective disks is unconscionable. I love the show but certainly wouldn't recommend this set to anyone."
Save yourself some money....

"..and buy the seasons seperately. The seasons all added up are currently $15 less than this boxed set, and this set makes no mention of any special features that buying them seperately doesn't include.
Soooo, unless you just have to have a boxed set (which the 6th season won't fit in), I'd just buy them by themselves. (obviously all at once else shipping makes the savings moot)"
House order on Amazon

"I purchased the House series as a Christmas gift for someone that absolutley loves the show. The show itself is great, no problems there.
When we received the package, I noticed right away that instead of getting the nice white box that claimed to store all of the series, we received each season seperate without the white box. We decided to just deal with it because it's not really about the box, but it was a little frustrating because I thought that was what I was getting!
Also, in a few of the sets, the discs were sliding around because the prongs that hold them in place had broken.
I've decided that I probably won't purchased DVD's through the site anymore because you never know what you are really getting and it could end up damaged in shipping. I'd rather pick it out myself at the store."
