Putting the record straight!,
This review is from: James Bond - 22 Film Collection [DVD]  (DVD)
Without going through every review,i can't be sure,but i get the impression that almost every review on here is for the blu-ray box set and not the standard one. I'm sure hidden away there are some but the majority talk about the more expensive blu-ray set which gives a false reading for the overall score! I have purchased the cheaper version,partly because i can't afford almost a hundred pounds...and partly because i'm not that bothered about all the extras,all i want to do is watch the films! I see some bright spark has given it one star for having no bonus footage...you didn't think to check first!? My score is based on the quality of the films and to me they are fine,if i wanted to spend a hundred pounds i would have done! So i'm happy with the item i purchased.

That "bright spark" was yours truly, Mr Raby, and I DID think to check first, which is why I didn't subsequently purchase the DVD box set, my point was that many people might be buying the DVD set expecting to have the same extra features as the Blu-Ray equivalent, and would no doubt be surprised and disappointed to discover the DVD set has ZERO extras nor does it have the bonus disc (such as it is), I was merely providing a warning to those who might be purchasing the DVD set, that they will get no extra features on it, whilst also lamenting the fact that DVD buyers like myself have been treated a little less than equal on this new release (the Bond films were all released as single-disc affairs that still included many extras a few years ago, so it's not as if disc space is an issue here) but I'm glad you're happy with the DVD set you purchased and I wish you many enjoyable hours of viewing...

I see your point - but feel you could handle the original review with a bit more criticality. I think somebody can be quite within thier rights to criticise a one-star review that gives the minimum possible score for only one gripe. It is annoying enough to get an idea of the quality of a product with people confusing reviews for buyer feedback, without these 'making a point' reviews that grossly exaggerate the problems with a product (although I have been guilty of that). I appreciate the warning Re extras though - but one star seems harsh for the product which isn't bad for the price.
