A very nice reprint, but the errors have NOT been fixed
on 18 July 2013
This is a beautifully produced book. It's of the same physical quality as the proceeding D&D 3.5 'Premium' reprints ... except ... this one does NOT have the errata fixed. The Premium Players Handbook, Dungeon Master Guide, Monster Manual and Spell Compendium, all include the promised errata but this product doesn't.
If you need a copy of the Magical Item Compendium and you can get this one cheaper then the older (original) version, then sure, buy this book. Just be sure to realise that it has the exact same errors and typos as the original book had back in 2007.
I purchased my copy when Amazon and even the WotC website were still listing the book as including errata. So I am pretty disappointed. However, it's still a very nice 'Premium' quality reprint of the original book, and as long as you aren't paying more than you would for the original, and you purchase it knowing it hasn't been corrected, then it's a good purchase.
