Not the latest BOX SET with 4 DVDs with X-tra material!!!!!,
This review is from: Friends: Complete Season 3 - New Edition [DVD]  (DVD)
I collect this series, and due to space limitations I want the NEWEST box set consisting of TWO SLIM cases containing FOUR DVDs, including one DVD with EXTRA MATERIAL. This reduces the required shelf space to a staggering 1/3!!! as compared to the original edition. The product AMAZON offers as NEW EDITION is an old product from 2002 or earlier containing THREE SLIM cases, one for each of the ordinary DVDs, and the BOX set is therefore 50% thicker. I bought series 1 and 2 in a local store, but series 3 from AMAZON. However, at arrival I was disappointed discovering the Season 3 box set wasn't what I expected! You can't tell the difference between these boxes by looking at the picture, because the box front design, as far as I can tell, is identical!!!
Required shelf space for 10 seasons: Original edition 48cm, Amazon "New Edition" 24cm, and LATEST edition: 16cm.
What about the empty cases and boxes for the series? - Many must have the complete 10 seasons by now and need the space saving for their own collection! Yes, they are available, but is it slim cases and is it the a set of two slim cases for the three DVDs?
