I've had various editions of these three serials over the years, on VHS and DVD, from numerous companies. For quality though this is easily the best and believe me there are some shockingly bad prints out there. (I guess because it's out of copyright so anyone can release it?)

The only thing missing is any extras. If you can find the American 2004 edition by VCI Entertainment of 'Flash Gordon Conquers The Universe' however this situation can be rectified as it features interviews with Buster Crabbe from 1970 (20 minutes) and 1975 (30 minutes), Buster Crabbe TV commercials, 1932 Olympic Footage (which was how he gained the Flash Gordon role), Photo Gallery and Biography. It's another good print too.

If you intend to watch these old Saturday morning serials...then get this version, because the transfer is the best.

The films where made circa 1936, and its a scream looking at the effects which are not that special.

However it brings back splendid memories watching these old timers. Jean Rodgers in the first episodes "Flash Gordon Space Soldiers" is absolutely gorgeous.

You can keep your Sam Jones; Buster Crabbe is THE definitive Flash Gordon. Cited as an inspiration for Star Wars, Flash Gordon the Serial is a must see for fans of fantasy / Sci-Fi. Admittedly it has not aged well but it has charm. I loved working my way through (but it does get a bit repetitive).

In this box set you get all 3 serials and as the last one was made in 1940 so this REALLY is the complete collection (unlike my Indy Jones box set!).
