Rated 4 out of 5 by NapTownGirl No Extras/Bonus Features :(
The best part of the series was the ten minute tidbits at the end of each episode showing how everything was captured on film, etc. I am not sure why, but none of these are on the Blu-Ray edition, but they are on the regular DVD set.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hope2Help Best DVD set...EVER
IF you haven't seen it, you need to. If you have seen it, you know what I'm talking about. This is the same series the Discovery Channel ran, only it's unabridged and has David Attenborough narrating, instead of Sigourney Weaver.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Frantic Prestine picture clarity
Prestine picture clarity that is hard to believe. HD is definetly the way of the future. Great price, fast shipping to Alaska, perfect for get togethers for friends and family. It can completely captivate you or you can talk with guests without it being overwhelming. Good extras. If you like nature, it is a must have.
Rated 5 out of 5 by brightsunflower Cheaper online
I went to the store and purchased this DVD in blueray and then found out a couple days later that it was half the price online. So I returned the store bought one and got one from walmart.com. My kids as well as my husband LOVE this DVD...great quality family time!
Rated 3 out of 5 by RVs2airplanes Good, not great
I read a lot of positve reviews about this so my expectations were pretty high. I got the BBC version that some say is 1080 P; it's not. It is 1080i, same as the Discovery version. Not bad, but not great. I'd say the same for the sound. I paid $39.00, which is a pretty good value for what you get. I don't think I would pay full price at $80.00.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveToShop415 This is not 1080p!!
After MUCH research I thought I found the format of Planet Earth on blu ray in 1080p, as I had heard the 1080i versions were not as good. None of the websites will tell you which version is formatted in 1080p and which are actually 1080i. When I received this, I was disappointed to learn it is the 1080i format. However, the picture quality is still exceptional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by easyEvega WOW! Amazing.
This Dvd is one of the best wild life documentary out there. Worth every bit I spent. Every person I know that has a blu-ray player has me bring it by. I only bring 1 of the dvds & tell them to get the rest at walmart.com.
Rated 5 out of 5 by warthog11287 A must have!
I bought this when I finally picked up a blu-ray player. I currently have a Samsung 40" LN40B550 1080P HDTV and a Samsung BD-P1590 blu-ray player. A few of my friends recommended that Planet Earth be my first blu-ray purchase and I am glad I listened to them. The images are amazing and the picture is crisp and shockingly colorful. If you have a blu-ray player, you should have this series.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Biznisnut An excelent value
Plant Earth is the perfect film for Blu-ray HD. Whether it's 1080p or 720p, it will look great...and even greater if purchased on sale!
Rated 5 out of 5 by greasylips Planet Earth is beautiful. I don't know how they were able to get the shots of animals like they did but it was amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hiteshINtheFLESH amazing
not all blu ray discs out were shot in 1080 full HD. all old movies are just upconvert 1080i. alot of new tv shows are still 720p HD but planet earth...you will make full use of the blu ray player. incredible show, the quality and the resolution is unmatchable. got it for 40 bucks blackfriday while everywhere else it's atleast double that. if you find it for 40 bucks, it's well worth it.
Rated 5 out of 5 Planet Earth
You can't go wrong with this DVD. It is very educational and the picture quality is unbelievable. This has to be one of the best filmed documentaries out there!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ZeeDr Must Have
Very good show of nature and our planet narrated well. I think this should be in every house. Opens our eyes to many things we never knew about Earth.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SJDealster It's Alive!
The sights and sounds bring planet earth right into your living room. A must see.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BargainSommelier Stunning Filmmaking
To sum up this box set I'll quote my brother-in-law who works in home theater and mobile installation:
"We always keep Planet Earth on file to showcase the benefits of bluray and the clear difference in picture and sound."
I think this is a fantastic series. I never saw it when it was on television and originally Netflix-ed the first disc. Decided immediately no need to waste a Netflix rental on this set because it was so amazing I was going to purchase it for sure. I originally purchased this set from Best Buy for $44 or so. But, then I returned it when I found Wal-Mart had AGAIN the best price. Amazing series of photography and great narration. You won't believe your eyes, and a great value for almost 9 hours of breathtaking entertainment.
Rated 5 out of 5 by yetAnotherNicknameThe3rd Incredible footage
Many hours of incredible nature action and scenery. You'll want to sell the farm and travel after seeing it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by hovey1 very educational product
This is one of the most valuable dvds I've ever
purchased. My grandchildren and friends alike
love Planet Earth. This is a great way to enjoy
our planet without even leaving your home.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JTolli Great Buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by mike8itall Amazing Experience
I´ve bought many BlueRay discs looking for the ultimate hi-def experience.
I´ve finally found it, and at a very low price.
This series coupled with a good surround sound system is simply unbeatable.
