Picked this up on a super deal ($54.99 CAD). We already owned most of the movies on DVD, and have been progressively upgrading to Blu-ray as certain titles go on sale. All I really wanted was to watch the movies in blue ray.
Samsung 47" 1080p LCD (60 Hz)
PS3 for Blu-Ray playback (HDMI to TV, Optical for Audio)
Marantz receiver w/ 5.1 audio configuration.
The first 5 movies are very straight forward conversions, not a lot of extra stuff to go with them. Movies will auto play from the beginning, rather than having a Title menu to interact with. Order of the Phoenix is a 2 disc set, and has some extras to is.
Visuals are 5/5 for the last few movies, 4.5/5 for the first 2 or 3. Some of the dark scenes have bad film grain and a tiny bit of artifacting.
Audio is 4.5/5 across the board, with a few scenes being very quiet voices during conversation and the background music being too loud over top. Acceptable, but just annoying to fiddle with volume once a movie.
I'd highly recommend the boxed set as an upgrade, then get the next two *sigh* movies as they arrive.
