That is wrong. All Universal Studios releases are region free. You can see it has been confirmed at slickdeals and here.

Other than the better packaging, is there any reason to get this?

$40 cheaper. The UK version has an episode guide booklet that the USA version doesn't. Here is a comparison video.

I was under the impression that the UK set did not have the bonus features the US version has. Has this been rectified? --Peter

Sorry - I assumed the blu-ray had the same content as the UK DVD release. --Peter

False. They are exactly the same.

I'd really like to get this, but $30+ per season is just too much for me. Here's hoping it eventually drops down to $15 or $20/season (ie, under $100). --Peter

Couldn't agree more. It's hard to justify paying $30 per season especially when 2 of the seasons (2.5 and 4.5) were really just network-imposed 2nd halves of one season. I'll just wait until it drops some more. Definitely getting the UK release though.

The price keeps dropping on this -- it's down to $150.85 shipped now. It's getting hard to resist.

remember this is basically 6 sets (I know it is actually 4 seasons, but it was released as split sets)... so @ $150, it is still $25 per set.... If that is good for you, then jump... if not, then wait until / if it drops further..

I think the UK package looks awful a big ugly tin but ended up biting on it none the less, i ended up getting my income tax check from H&R early so treated myself otherwise i would of never dropped 150

i still hate the UK package, i know its better packaging disc safety wise but i just thing it looks butt ass ugly

bet you would

i honestly don't see what you see in the packaging.. it is the most bland and boring package i have seen and is fat and ugly.. the US packaging (as in the look of it) i think looks way better but the way the disc are set up is awful very prone to scratching.. as is alot of complete series these days which pisses me off (ie shield set, new six feet under set, wire etc) these companies need to learn how to package dvds properly

Emailed them to request an adjustment on the order already on the way and they gave me a $20.71 credit, making my final price $142.92. Cool!

How did you get that price ($142.92), free shipping, or just the difference in the exchange rate of when you ordered vs. today, or something else?

Don't know. Emailed them for an adjustment, expecting $13 and change, and she ended up giving me over $20.

If you look in the upper right hand corner of the first post... I changed it yesterday. I guess you need a moderator to fix it.
