2.0 out of 5 stars Decent, but not great 12 Nov 2009
By Enjolras - Published on Amazon.com
This set is basically a rehash of prior NatGeo documentaries. I had seen some of these before, such as Relentless Enemies and Kingdom of the Blue Whale. While good, they're not great - and certainly not up to the groundbreaking standards set by Planet Earth and the folks at BBC. They tend to provide overly dramatic storylines for the animals and focus far too much on the human researchers. The fact that this is mixed with with documentaries on things ranging from astronomy and sports makes it difficult to recommend this set as a gift for anybody, except perhaps a diehard NatGeo junkie.

2.0 out of 5 stars I am disappointed and now wary! 11 Nov 2011

I bought this set based on the reviews I read on the site, here, on Amazon.com. I guess I was so eager to watch more nature documentaries after viewing all the BBC stuff..(Planet Earth, Life, and others) . I also watched Great Migrations, a recent NatGeo production and release. I thought, wow, I will get this set for more viewing thrills, even though the reviews I read here hinted that the video was not as good as the BBC stuff but still left the impression that at the very least it was good.
In my humble opinion, this set is way overpriced at around $ 70 if you factor in tax and shipping. Problem is there is no way you can tell how bad or good video is without watching and opening the package. I watched all six discs in the set. I honestly felt I was watching DVD quality material. The material itself seems to have been put together with no rhyme or reason.there was no particular theme to the pack. The claim that this was high definition, was laughable. The extras were all in Standard definition and looked bad when projected on a small screen. Really, let's face it, the BBC really knows how to put a set together. As I said earlier, Great Migrations a NatGeo recent release was excellent with Great video and very nice coherent themes. The narration was top notch.
This release (Nat Geo. Ultimate High Def. Collection) was very disappointing to me. I really regret buying it. Oh well, I can always use the pack as a bookend or a paper weight.

4.0 out of 5 stars But it is not suppose to be Planet Earth 13 Nov 2009
By A Regular Joe - Published on Amazon.com

It is hard to compare this set of documentaries to Planet Earth because the film makers did not intend for these films to be another or type of Planet Earth. They did not have the time or funds to create a look at the entire world that Planet Earth does and I doubt they wanted their pictures to be compared to Planet Earth. Instead we have here a classic cross section of National Geographic documentaries with superb picture and sound that should thrill any family to own. Some inclusions weaker than others, this is a great set on blu-ray for less than $10 a film.

The video quality is clear and the content is educational. I bought a used one but it looks like new lucky with cheaper price. Hope other buyers would also consider the used one.
