Great item works fantastically well. And at a great price.

I'm using the box to connect my Playstation4 to a pair of sterio speakers using phono leads and it handles the job perfectly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money, 26 Dec. 2013
For me W. Eugene Smith is my favorite photographer of all time. His composition and knowledge of exposure is second to none and he's created some of the most powerful and thought provoking images ever taken.

I came to this book expecting a quality retrospective of the man's work composed in an order by the man himself. However I got two lovingly recreated samplers of his work aimed as the basis of creating his "big book". The images themselves in the two books are often old and damaged and the printing methods were fairly basic at the time. This has resulted in them loosing any form of there original exposure at best and at worst becoming completely unrecognizable from the original image. The only Interesting part of the two scrap books is looking at their layout.

The third book does a bit to rectify this. With high quality thumbnails of all the photographs in the original two samplers it demonstrates just what a talented photographer Smith was. Unfortunately these are small and don't do the work justice. The best of both worlds for me would be for the authors to recreate the original two scrapbooks layout with higher quality images of his photographs then this product would have been perfect.

What were left with is a collection that is only intended for historic purposes and the study of the photo book layout, not a chronicle of his work lovingly recreated for fans.

I would advise to avoid this product if you are interested in his photography and go with other W. Eugene Smith books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Offer, 2 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this box set last month and after just finishing the final episode of season 5 i have to say its one of the greatest shows i have ever seen if not the greatest. The characters are compelling and the story could only come from lots of research. There are may times through out the series where i was shocked that this kind of corruption would happen on such a large scale but at the same time are pretty sure it does. The extra features also show an interesting look into the real world we live in and how it has influenced the show but what makes this show what it is is how it treats its audience with respect believing that we can work things out for ourselves with out being force fed the facts countless times as most other television shows. Quite simply a masterpiece that should be watched by everyone old enough to.
