4.0 out of 5 stars Particular format a bargain, 1 Feb. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Midsomer Murders - The Ninth Collection (10 Disc DVD) (DVD)
I always try to wait for these 10 disc collections to come out. (Haven't always been successful!) I have an all region player so can enjoy the episodes in this set so much earlier than the U.S. versions come out. Broken down by price per disc you just can't beat the value. My one quibble in the U.K. versions was that they did not come with subtitles, but that fault is rectified in collection 9. Haven't seen these yet, because I am in the process of re-viewing the series in order, but am really looking forward to the "new" Barnaby and his family.

I agree, being a "Yankee" from mid-Atlantic. Not only do I have trouble with some British accents, but am also hard-of-hearing. I do find that headphones and audio-adjustments to my TV help in some cases. MY BIG BEEF -- both Amazon.co.uk and AcornDVD.com often omit specific info on whether subtitles are included -- should have a mandatory line: Subtitles: Yes (with language listed) or No. It's terribly expensive to return a dvd set to the UK for lack of subtitles!
And yes, I've told friends to buy a $60 region-free Philips player and buy UK series at no more than half the US price, even allowing for shipping. (USA series are NOT less expensive from AmazonUK) Best example: 5 years ago I purchased the complete UK set of Inspector Morse for under $70.00 total including s/h. At that time the complete US region-1 set was slightly under $300.00. Additional savings in s/h when you purchase several UK sets at once.
As an added bonus, AmazonUK automatically deletes the VAT when shipping to the USA, reducing the cost further by 16%.

The tenth collection is taking so long to come out. With the American set 25 having 5 episodes instead of the usual 4, it might be better to buy it in the U.S. version. Still pondering....
