I currently do not own the previous releases and have always wanted to do so. I guess what has kept me away is pricing. I like the show, but not enough to pay Star Trek-like money.
CBS usually does do a great job with their releases, I just could not swallow the asking for price for a show in which I am just a moderate fan.
Current pricing for the old complete set: $289.71
Current pricing for the bundled seasons: $410.00
Current pricing for the reissue described here: $126.99

And there is no import available for the original sets which we have seen all too often being less than half the U.S. release.

The new price is something I can swallow and have just ordered it!

I was lucky in that I owned the previous DVD set and sold it for about $100. No idea how it was fetching that much. I immediately bought the blu ray set. It's one of my favorite shows of all time and I love the set, a huge improvement over the DVD set.

Granted you can see all the episodes on Netflix but the set is loaded with supplements.

Netflix (and others) change content ALL the time. Granted I have been watching them on there lately, there is no guarantee these will exist next year, next month, hell even tomorrow. Physical always rules for this reason.

Found a deal on SD - by making this a combo with a bookmark on Barnes & Noble's website it is now $73.77, tax and shipping included. Amazon order has of course been cancelled. I have a suspicion that on street date, if Walmart carries it it will be $69.99
Even without the deal, B&N has it for $84.

I did. There's still always a chance someone would go lower but for now this is the best deal. If Amazon goes to $69.99 I obviously will change my loyalty. I will set up a deal alert of $70 on Camel^3
