Since they're also releasing a set for Atlantis, the possibility is very high.

Same, also wondering how their new DVD set compares to older DVDs + their upscaled BRs - already have the older DVDs, wondering if newer DVDs would be better than the BR and/or old DVDs at letting my SHIELD TV AI upscale them

The new VEI DVD complete series is apparently based on the same squeaky clean masters as the BR's. Thus, they can't be better then the BR's, and as far as the older DVDs, that would likely depend on how much you prefer clean image with some loss of detail to a grainier image with more detail.

I wouldn't be surprised if we end up with seasons 1-3 (16mm) looking better on the original DVDs and seasons 4-7 (35mm) better on the new VEI version.

Regarding Stargate Universe, VEI may very well be dropping it in the next few weeks, as the Stargate Atlantis announcement quickly followed this release. All three series have been re-released this year on DVD, so it looks incredibly promising.

If 2020 has any upsides, it's been in finally getting some long languishing TV series titles on BD, from completing The Office to 30 Rock and now SG-1.

The seller on Amazon is VEI. Costs a little more there, but free shipping. Probably about the same total either way.

The screenshots look great! Here is what one of them looks like after running it through Topaz Denoise AI with 0 denoise and 15 sharpening:

Couldn't afford to order this before Christmas like I intended .
Besides the bad packaging looks like a big enough upgrade to me to buy after the new year .
Can't be any worse than the original DVD box set's I bought that have a crazy amount of microblocking .

I ordered directly from VEI after comparing costs with Amazon...saved just under $15 dollars going with VEI since they don’t charge sales tax, and their base price was lower than on Amazon.

Not sure if those screenshots hint at an upscale but the DNR is annoying. Hoping it translates well in motion because we all know screenshots don't always tell the whole tale.
That being said it still looks better than the DVD and being Widescreen is a huge plus.

Was something wrong with the Atlantis Blu-Ray set released in 2011?

Can you please let us know if all the special features were carried over? Commentaries, episode featurettes and documentaries?

I'm confused, this is only available on Amazon.ca? Not the US branch?

Wouldn't it be funny if we all purchased this only to have Kino or some other boutique announce a fully remastered set.

EDIT: Apparently Amazon.ca don't ship to the US

What episode is this? I'd like to do a comparison with the 1080p version from iTunes.

cdittmer; Thank you very much for all this information. I was wondering if you could upload a video sample, I don't know, 20 or 30 seconds of video of an episode of season 1. Well, seeing photos is not the same as watching the moving image. Since I improved the first 7 seasons with VEAI, but there are always halos and rare artifacts. So I would like to see a moving image, to see if those weird things are appreciated too, or they really did a better job.

If you can't put a link to the video here, could you upload it to Mega, for example, and send me the link privately? 20 or 30 seconds is enough

Here are scans of the booklet that come with the set and lists all of the special features. There is a bonus disc of features as part of the set in addition to features on certain discs.
