I know this is the Blu-ray bargains forum, but I thought it might be worth mentioning for anyone making an order that there are some DVD-only titles in this sale at pretty nice prices too. I ended up getting The Complete Hal Roach Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly Comedy Collection at $19.98 and It's About Time - The Complete Series for $14.98. Remove the blu-ray filter on the search results to see the DVD titles too.

The cheaper one is all three movies on a single disc without any special features, which the more expensive version has across 3 discs, one for each title

I've got the identical Roan DVD set. Obviously blu is an upgrade over dvd; but beyond that does anyone know is this transfer a major upgrade over the Roan (which was probably the best of the PD dvd manufacturers)?

I ended up getting the Alton blu set a few months ago (The one with all the extras). I still haven't watched any, but dvdbeaver had pretty good things to say about T-Men. The DVD set is in the comparison, so you may want to give the review a look. This blu set has some great noirs, and I just decided to bite the bullet and pay extra for all the goodies. Looking forward to diving in the commentaries.
