Good for seeing some of Tesla's inventions but poor quality

(3 out of 5 stars)
"I just viewed this 50 minute long DVD and found it kind of boring but useful regarding seeing some of Tesla's actual inventions at work and some of the real documents, by and about him, displayed. It also shows the inside of the Tesla museum in Belgrade. The PBS Tesla documentary, Tesla - Master of Lightning, is much more interesting and goes much deeper into Tesla's life (it's much longer in duration). As well, this DVD is a poor quality transfer of the VHS tape; it has video dropouts and missing pieces, similar to what happens when a film has damaged sections chopped out, causing jump cuts where some information is lost. I cover Tesla at the beginning of a course I teach about information technology and, along with the PBS Tesla documentary, will use brief segments of this DVD to further illustrate Tesla's inventions and importance; past, present and future."

A very satisfying (though not great) DVD from video tranfer

"Tesla, who died in 1943 was an amazing amn
that we used to produce here in Western
Civilization, until the big Corporations
started to clamp down on independent inven-
tors who wanted to build a better mouse
trap! There is not too many more sad fights
in the world of inventions than the ones
between Tesla and Edison! This movie tells
a very complete story!"
An old fashion documentary

"I have next to no time to read so I rely a lot on DVD documentories. They're easier to pay attention to than a book when your tired. USUALLY, when you search for things on Amazon, the best one out of the bunch is the one at the top of the list. Not so in this case. This is a very old fashioned documentary from, I really don't know when. I had gotten use to very energetic and exciting narrarations. This reminded me of a high school lecture I would have fallen asleep in. Very much on the boaring side.
The up side to this DVD is that you get a bit of visual illustrations of his work. Theres a part in the program where they have the president of the Tesla museum explain and even deminstrate some of his work. You also get to see things like the photographs of his hands that he took when he was working on photography lighting, as well as the sphere he was creamated in. There are a few things like that that you probably wont find anywhere else, but my not be completely worth the 5-10 seconds of show that that get.
This DVD is very informative, but not very big on keeping your attention. You're most likely to miss something cool just because the show had a hard time keeping you into it with the dull droning of the narraration. Much like in high school.
I'm not trying to discourage anyones interest in Nikola Tesla. He was awesome. I'm just suggesting that you may want to look at the reviews of some of the other videos."
