5.0 out of 5 stars firmware upgrade required Jan. 3 2009
Format:Blu-ray
I had no problem playing this on my PS3.It was well reported that a firmware upgrade was required for this Blu-Ray and more recent titles. Note that Blu_Rays use Java script and the players are more like computers and, unlike DVD players, need to firmware upgraded regularly. Check with the manufacturer, some of whom are faster at posting upgrades than others.

As for the films, these are the best Bonds out there. They look and sound pristine with the original mono mixes for purists.

1.0 out of 5 stars Manufacturing Problem with this set Oct. 30 2008
Format:Blu-ray
I bought this the day it came out and am glad I went home and threw the discs on right away to check them out. The first disc in this set "For Your Eyes Only" would not play in either of my Blu-Ray players (BD-P1400 and BD-UP5000) - after the Legal bit at the beginning before the menu it would simply spit the disc out saying it could not be played. I checked firmware on both devices and they were up to date. I returned the set to a DIFFERENT store, of the SAME chain I purchased it from, got a replacement, and decided I would check it prior to leaving the store. Had the fellow put it on their player, and same deal with only that first disc of the set. The others play fine. So 2 copies, from 2 different stores, same issue. Im pretty sure they pulled them from the shelves.
I will not buy this set again until I hear whats going on with it. Hope this helps anyone about to buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another decade, another Bond boxed set. Aug. 31 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Here we are, yet again, with another one of these James Bond multi-disc boxed sets that MGM/UA/Fox/your grandmother seem to love re-re-re-releasing every five years or so. As usual, the movies are apparently chosen at random with little-to-no rhyme or reason given to the selections, but if you're going to buy only one of the three current Blu-Ray sets, then The James Bond Collection, Vol. 2 is the one to get.

This set contains three of the very best classic Bond films: "From Russia With Love", "Thunderball" and "For Your Eyes Only." Each of these is among the most highly-rated among Bond fans and each stands alone as some of the most well-written, tightly paced and serious films in the EON canon.

The hi-def mastering on these Blu-Rays is, frankly, outstanding -- particularly in regards to the older films, "From Russia With Love" and "Thunderball." While the recent Ultimate Edition DVDs represented the pinnacle of what could be achieved with standard definition mastering (and they do upscale very well in Blu-Ray/upscaling DVD players), these new discs showcase Lowry Digital's fine work in restoring these films to a hitherto unparalleled level of quality, allowing them to stand up to more recent releases like "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of Solace." If you're a hardcore Bond fan, you'll want at least one example demonstrating the full range of Lowry's efforts in this regard. With this box you'll own three of their best.

The packaging looks great but is, of course, rather flimsy for something so expensive. Also, no "Goldfinger" or "Dr. No" -- would it kill Fox/MGM to include four films in these things?!

P.S. Update your Blu-Ray player's firmware before you even *think* about taking these discs for a spin.
