Breakdown of what's here

"I haven't watched all the movies yet, just spot-checked them, but since Video Asia is known for bad quality I figured it might be helpful to give a quality heads-up. As Video Asia collections go, the quality on this one was much better than most of their products... but, it's still Video Asia, so don't expect too much. I checked these on a regular old tube TV... if you have a high-def flatscreen it'll probably look worse.
Have A Good Funeral, Amigo... - runs 1 hr. 32 min. 11 sec. Sharp widescreen picture.
Sartana: Angel of Death - runs 1 hr. 33 min. 46 sec. Sharp, widescreen.
Blood At Sundown - runs 1 hr. 39 min. 44 sec. Slightly faded reddish print, mastered off a VHS with some tape damage, causing jittering and some digitization of the picture. Slightly letterboxed.
If You Meet Sartana, Pray For Your Death - 1 hr. 30 min. 30 sec. Letterboxed, sharp, maybe a bit greenish.
Light The Fuse, Sartana is Coming - 1 hr. 35 min. 24 sec. Sharp, letterboxed.
I Am Sartana Trade Your Guns for a Coffin - 1 hr. 31 min. 14 sec. Full-frame, picture's slightly soft and faded
Price of Death - 1 hr. 28 min. 30 sec. Letterboxed, sharp.
Sartana in the Valley of Death - 1 hr. 18 min. 43 sec. Letterboxed, sharp.
One Damed Day At Dawn Django Meets Sartana - 1 hr. 21 min. 55 sec. Sharp and letterboxed (but the letterboxing may be fake matting, since it looks a bit odd)
Django & Sartana Are Coming, It's The End - 1 hr. 23 min. 42 sec. Full frame, not very sharp but not terrible. There's a "7" bug in the lower right corner all the time, burned into whatever tape this was dubbed from. If you're one of those people who lose their mind over watermarking, this will make you apoplectic.
This is hardly the "complete" Satana, since there's no "Django Challenges Sartana," no "Sartana Kills Them All," no "Sartana Does Not Forgive"... not even "Trinity & Sartana, Those Dirty S.O.B.'s" which is readily available on cheap DVD collections. But, since most of these films are hard to track down otherwise and was raised in the days of VHS bootlegs so can handle less-than-pristine quality, I was quite happy with this set, more so than any other Video Asia product I've bought. It still wouldn't stop me from buying these films again should a more reputable company like Wild East decide to release better prints. For now, though, it'll do."
Sartana 10 feature film collection

(5 out of 5 stars)
"Despite the various pre-publication write-ups, the actual contents of this DVD collection include:
-Blood at Sundown (1967)
-If You Meet Sartana Pray For Your Death (1968)
-Have a Good Funeral, My Friend...Sartana Will Pay (1971)
-Sartana: Angel of Death (1969)
-Light the Fuse...Sartana is Coming (1971)
-I am Sartana (1972)
-Price of Death (1972)
-Sartana in the Valley of Death (1970)
-Django and Sartana's Showdown in the West (1970)
-Django vs. Sartana (1970)
My only disappointment is the absence of the 1970 film "Sartana Kills Them All," considered by many to be one of the six 'official' Sartana films. Otherwise, a remarkable collection."
Quite good and a very good value

"The picture quality varies from film to film, but all are watchable (excepting ~30 seconds lost in Blood at Sundown) and some are very good.
Although this set doesn't contain every film with Sartana in the title or referencing the character Sartana, it does include every one starring Gianni Garko, and eight of the ten movies included are ranked in [...] members' poll of the top 148. Only one of the "missing Sartanas" appear in this list of favorites. I think the producers are entitled to call this the complete saga because of the inclusion of all "offical" Sartana flicks.
There can be title confusion, so here is my list of the ten movies in this collection:
1. Django and Sartana's Showdown in the West/ One Damned Day at Dawn: Django Meets Sartana/Django and Sartana
2. Django and Sartana are Coming, It's the End/Django vs. Sartana
3. Have a Good Funeral, My Friend, Sartana Will Pay
4. I am Sartana, Your Angel of Death
5. Blood at Sundown/A Thousand Dollars on the Black/Sartana (Germany)
6. If You Meet Sartana, Pray for Your Death
7. Price of Death
8. Sartana in the Valley of Death
9. Light the Fuse, Sartana is Coming
10.Sartana's here: Trade Your Pistols for a Coffin/ A Fistful of Lead
