Default Went ahead and upgraded to the ultimate Matrix collection

Yesterday I had posted that I found the matrix in the blu-ray jacket at walmart for $15, I had originally planned on getting the three movies separately but I didn't see them separate.

So i bought the box set for $99 at best buy. I know online is cheaper, but I still feel safer buying locally in some cases. They also had the pirates of the caribian trilogy box set but I decided to get the matrix first then maybe replace those later. I am updating my library slowly to blu-ray from DVD.

Considering I own all three matrix movies and don't dislike any of them, i figured i'd buy the box set as they don't have them separate. pirates i can do it either way. but i think i'd watch the matrix more.

Paid $19.95 for mine and all I had to was mail in my Matrix Revolutions HD DVD cover, which I promptly reprinted.

Like the others have said op…..return it if u haven’t opened it and get it online.

There are a lot of better prices out there…esp. since the set has been out for almost 2 years now.

I have no idea how best buy bases their pricing, i wonder if it's location based.

stuff like blu-ray players and other electronic devices seem to be pretty universally priced, but with dvds, blu-rays etc it seems like the prices jump up and down. Especially with box sets. At least i was able to pay a good part with graduation gift money o technically only $60 came out of my own money which amazon sells it for $73 Unless Florida generally has a generally higher price for discs then other places who knows.

Well I've opened it already since I don't usually buy box sets often i'm not familiar with the usual price range. I do know it's not uncommon to find box sets at best buy for $70 to $100 as far as buying online I usually have only bought electronically on line e.g. software licenses. I hear a lot of mixed things about amazon some good and some bad so i still tend to buy my movies locally.

Typically best buy across the country will have the same prices.

The $20 version people are getting from the UK.

Oh i wanted to add while i may have not gotten this collection at the cheapest deal I could have. As a professional in videon/TV/film etc many tools i will have to purchases in the future will be much more expensive then the average consumer will want to spend. Also I exclusively use Macs for work and every day use. So we all know Macs and apple hardware aren't cheap. I'm just saying in comparison even $100 for a box set of blu-rays is cheap compared to a $1500 computer or more.

I'd say, if you love the movies and plan on watching them often, then the price is justified. Hope you get your money's worth (I was happy enough paying $52).

I'd also stick with the US version, since it has the "Animatrix" in full 1080p included.

....there is no spoon.

Shopping online is perfectly safe! 80% of my collection is from Amazon alone!

is the non us version what people got for $20? i'm confused here, why would someone from america be buying from the UK ? when there is a us version of the movies presently available ? Anyway I have decided to start saving on movies and got a netflix account, problem is they don't have everything i want in HD or not streaming etc.

i believe it's the same transfer, has the same extras and audio as well just doesn't have the animatrix.

Ahh then you just stated the value i put into this version. I've never seen the anamatrix nor the matrix revisited both things are supposed to be included in this set. I've heard of the animatrix but never saw it so really i'm getting a bunch of footage and apparently a whole couple of movies i haven't seen past the trilogy in buying this version.

Yeah, Blu-Benny says they're from the UK. Some folks import movies for various reasons (price, different editions, etc). Some folks also don't mind that the "Matrix" box set is only for the trilogy and not with the "Animatrix;" some folks don't even want the extra disc. I know any Amazon site can ship to the US or anywhere else in the world, but with different shipping costs. It all depends on how particular a buyer is.

Netflix is worthwhile. Returning and buying the "Matrix" set elsewhere would be cheaper too, but I'd still say keep it if you're happy with it and have the money to spare.

99.99 divided by 4 equals 24.9975. Basically you payed $25 for each movie. Amazon has it for $71.99. That would equal $18 for each movie which is much better. Hell if you just wait a week or so Amazon might have it as Deal of the Day for much less than that.

You way overpayed for that, my friend.
