I absolutely love these movies, and this collection. If you're looking for Lord of the Rings on Blu Ray, this is the one you want! This collection includes the Extended Editions of each film, which gives you about 3 extra hours compared to the Theatrical Editions (each Extended Edition is approximately one hour longer than its corresponding Theatrical Edition). Each film is actually split up between two discs, so you'll have to change discs about halfway through each movie. But hey, it's just like having an intermission where you can stretch your legs and go get some food! Keep in mind the Theatrical Editions of these films are about 3 hours long each, so the Extended Editions are about 4 hours each. My collection arrived well-packaged and in great condition. One thing I would have liked better is if the outer box was a little more sturdy/solid - it is not as flimsy/weak as some collections I have purchased, but it is also not the best. But if it's just sitting on a shelf, it's not really a problem...if you were handling it a lot though, the box may come apart fairly easily/quickly.
