3.0 out of 5 stars False Marketing, 28 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was extremely disappointed about the amount of time each DVD contained. I did not look at the DVD specs, but thought that 6 DVDs would entertain me for days and days, possibly even weeks, only to find that I had watched the whole lot over a couple of evenings.
Each DVD is only about 45min, with no extras. You think you are buying the absolute definitive because you get 6 DVDs, they could just as easily have fitted all the episodes easily onto 2 DVDs.

Having said all that, I really enjoyed what was available. The layout and progression was in a format that made sense and was easy to follow. There just could have been much, much more. When buying this assume a 2 DVD set spread over 6 DVDs

2.0 out of 5 stars Works with modification, 28 Jun. 2011
The clasp system did not work in the socket of a Compaq Presario. The rotary numbers only turn once the opposing clasps on the lock open fully. This was not possible in my machine. I did manage to get the lock to work by filing the single clasp at its base so that the opposing clasps had more room to open in the laptop locking hole. Once modified, the unit works fine.
