I have read all critical reviews regarding the packaging of this product. In my point of view, however, it's actually not that bad at all. Although I feel it would have been much easier to navigate if there were no more than 2 disks on each tray, I don't think it is "the worst packaging ever" kind of thing. I owned the previous set (Agatha Christie's Poirot The Complete Series 1-12 [DVD]) - and compared to the previous packaging, I actually like the new packaging better. At least, the new plastic inner cases are more durable and sophisticated looking than the previous paper & easily breakable plastic combo. If you own Jeremy Brett's Sherlock Holmes Complete Collection [DVD], the inner case design/material of the Poirot Definitive Collection is quite similar. The only downside is that unlike the Sherlock Holms collection that holds only 1 DVD on each pile (= max 2 DVDs on each tray), the Poirot collection is holding up to 2 DVDs stacked on several piles (= some trays holding up to 4 DVDs).

It is understandable some people worry about scratches and damages to the DVDs - but if you look closer, there is little space between the disks so the DVDs are not really directly contacted each other.

Anyhow, I guess "seeing is believing" - so I have uploaded some photos to "Customer Images". I hope they will help.

----------

(UPDATE): In case if you still feel a pain in navigation, I would recommend you to reorganize the DVDs inside the box so that every tray holds 3 disks evenly (except the last tray of the second box which will hold 2 DVDs). First, take out all the DVDs from the box (at this point, I would also suggest you to check the back of each DVD to make sure there is no initially faulty disk. If you find any visible damage, contact Amazon immediately for exchange.) - then put 3 DVDs back on each tray. It may not sound like making much difference but I've found it better than dealing with 4 DVD trays :-)

At last, we have a complete collection of Poirot episodes that can truly be called 'complete'. It boasts all 70 episodes of the ITV series starring David Suchet as the Belgian sleuth, from the first 'The Adventure of the Clapham Cook' to the final 'Curtain'. Everybody will have their own favourites. They can wander around the series, picking random stories, or do as I am doing, and starting from the very beginning and seeing them chronologically. As I haven't seen them for many years, the stories appear fresh, ready to see anew.

The discs have subtitles, should the viewer require them. The packaging is very poor, consisting of two large volumes of discs put in a larger case. Each volume has the discs crammed in, so that as many as three discs are squashed on top of one another, so that two have to be removed each time.

I can't help thinking that this clumsy presentation was thrown together in time to be released just after the final episode, and also for the Christmas 2013 market. I'm certain that there will be a better set coming out in the near future, most likely one on Blu-Ray as well. ITV have been very greedy in milking Poirot, putting out 'complete sets' every few years, although further episodes were still in production at the time.

Lastly, I have a massive gripe about the Piracy Warning. The one with the extra loud noise and the girl copying on the computer is shown, and unlike other discs that carry this, it cannot be skipped. We are forced to listen to it every time we put a 'Poirot' story on.

Grow up ITV! We are not naughty little children. That collection has been bought with our money, and we should not have to be forced to listen to that every time.

The Poirot stories are really five star, but I have to remove a star for the packing and that piracy warning.

Of course, the Poirot series all together in one set is fantastic. A stunning televisual achievement, and wonderful to be able to work through from the very beginning again. The old episodes still hold up very well! Extra features are sparse, with the excellent ITV docs from the end of the series (Being Poirot) and the Orient Express adaptation, but only one feature new to DVD - a short interview with David Suchet. Similar features with other major cast/writers/etc. would have been very nice, but you can't have it all.

Now to the packaging. It's not perfect, but it really isn't the end of the world. When presenting 35 discs space is an issue, and unfortunately here discs are stacked in twos. Every fourth disc does require removing/replacing/holding/balancing three to unearth the one desired, which is annoying. I do feel that this set would be better in four DVD cases rather than two huge ones, as the sections can get a bit caught. This afternoon when replacing one of the first discs and closing the box, the next disc section caught a later disc and quite literally fired it across my living room floor at some speed. Obviously this is not ideal, but I don't expect it to damage the discs at any point. This first run of the set erroneously uses the collection nine disc art for the penultimate disc, which rather wrecks the aesthetic, but other than that the presentational style of the set is actually very good (look at the cover, it's really quite beautiful - and the two big DVD cases look pleasingly bookish when facing spine outwards from the cardboard casing). While it might not be the easiest to navigate through, this is absolutely no reason to be dissuaded from buying. Enjoy a piece of television history, complete at last!
