I ordered the US edition and have received 3 replacements now and they are all damaged and all scratched discs on numerous of the titles. Is the UK set any better? This is getting ridiculous.

Are you sure they're scratches and not just glue scuffs? My Hitchcock set had marks on a number of the discs, but I was able to buff them off with a t-shirt, they were just glue from the sleeves/pages of the digibook.

Not just that but the box itself was damaged badly

Ah, could be because the set is older and the boxes have been bumping around in a warehouse for a while. I got the Criterion Antoine Doinel boxset as a gift last year, and it's a few years old. The copy Amazon sent me looked like a truck ran over it. I sent it back for a replacement, and the second one was just as bad.

Given that THE BIRDS features a huuuuuuuge number of elaborate optical effects, I'm not sure how much they can do in the way of restoring it. Much of the dirt and such may be inherent in the negative. The non-effects parts of the film actually look great on the BD.

I thought the grain in some of the non-effects scenes (particularly the earlier scenes) had a weird clumpy appearance (it improved as the film progressed to the point that I no longer noticed it). Particularly noticeable in several shots of Tipi Hedren's face (when looking at her forehead). It always looks like some weird video compression/distortion to me when I see that, but apparently is is just really CLUMPY grain?

I'll have to check those scenes out again. You mean the pet store stuff at the beginning?
