If anyone could provide links to the best, that would be great.

I'm also looking for the best set of Life. And would the Planet Earth/Life combo be sufficient.

I've seen numerous of these Planet Earth sets and some are 550 minutes, 563, 543, 600. What are the differences? Some are on four discs, five or six????
I got the planet earth/life box set a few months back and I love it! It includes the special edition of planet earth. Be aware the discovery version has different narrators than the original bbc version's David Attonbourgh. Both are available in the US

Thank you! I went to Best Buy today looking for this set. The only one I could find is the Oprah Winfrey-narrated version. No luck on Planet Earth. So I'm in a quandary and it's doubtful I will be able to get this via U&S.

There will probably be sales on BBC Natural History Unit titles next week (Monday is Earth Day). Currently Amazon has Frozen Planet for $19.99, I'd look for some sort of a Gold Box offer early next week. Costco (always YMMV) currently has several titles for under 18 dollars.
US/UK films that need to be on blu-ray:My Darling Clementine (1946, Ford), Out of the Past (1947, Tourneur), Thunderheart (1992, Apted) , Lone Star (1996, Sayles)

Foreign films that need to be on blu-ray:
Raise The Red Lantern (1991, Zhang), The Best of Youth (2003, Giordana), Still Life (2006, Jia), 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days (2007, Mungiu)

I scored an Attenborough narrated version of Life on ebay the other night for $35. My local best buy only carried the Oprah narrated one.

You can get the Attenborough Life set for between $30-$40 on ebay from what I could tell. It’s $47 on amazon right now……@ least it was when I looked yesterday.

I saw first 3 episodes from 2007 transfer - was surprised to see 4,5 mark, because on Panni 50ST60 the picture was quite mediocre - almost all footage, except aero shots, has noise, dithering, low resolution, etc. Almost painful to watch. Life is way better.

I just bought the globe, brand new, from Ebay. But I noticed that mine didn't include the small plaque(?) that shows what edition it is out of the numbered collection. It didn't get ripped off because the padding is still intact. Anyone else have this problem?

I also noticed that there wasn't a listing for the Planet Earth Globe DVD. The first globe I bought, I thought was the blu ray but it turned out to be the DVD. I'll be adding the listing shortly.

So I have a superficial question regarding packaging.

To anybody who owns or has seen the boxset of Planet Earth: Special Edition and Life, does anyone know if this is a complete repackage, or if the individual digipacks are simply placed in an outer box?

That a typo, did you mean you scored one for $25?

A few BB near me are carrying Life. Hope they still have a few when U&S hits.

Does anyone here have this collection? Is it the two digipaks or is it two regular blu-ray cases? Can anyone post a pic or describe how this set looks?

Keep in mind that the standard for blu-ray in 2007 is quite different than it is today. This was used on demo sets everywhere. Life came along wayyy after the fact.

That, and it's not like the HD video cameras used for Planet Earth were nearly as advanced either.
Forget The Evil Dead; what George Lucas has done to Star Wars since 1997 is truly "The Ultimate Experience in Grueling Terror".

It's been a while since I looked at it, but I'm pretty sure that's it. I'll check when I'm home later, and let you know otherwise.
So it sounds like the original digipaks are stored in the outer box.

Thanks! I was looking for an unboxing but couldn't find one.

I think I'm going to end up going for the individual sets, since I'd like each set to have its own slipcase. But this is a nice set.

By the way, strumdogg followed up his reply with a photo of his set as well:

Yeah I got the individuals, too. I think I paid like $47 total for both at Best Buy (on separate occasions).

Last year around Earth Day, I believe Best Buy had them on sale for $26.99 and $19.99, respectively. AND they had U&S going on at the time. I totally failed by not taking advantage of that.

I think I'm just going to jump on them at Amazon's current price ($57 for the two), since I don't think they'll be going on sale again until either the holiday season or Earth Day again next year.

or this?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Life-Blu-ray...&keywords=life

I'm assuming this will work on a U.S. blu-ray player? And that there should be no differences between this and the U.S. set, right?
