    sopranos Box sets 1 - 3 have been re-released in R2 in Digipak form (as opposed to the giant box sets containing the individual snappers).

    I know that the new sets now have:

    16x9 Anamorphic Transfers (same as R1)
    5.1 Dolby Digital Sound (as R1)

    but the reverse of the 2nd box doesn't mention the commentaries - are these actually present and are these sets exactly the same as the R1 counterparts (apart from lack of foil/metallic look cover art of course).

    cheers

    Just ordered seasons 1-3 from play. No idea what they're like, but for £30 each you can't go wrong:) Thank god I avoided the previous R2 releases...

    Watched episode 1 of the first season last night, overall very impressed. Sound is good and the picture is excellent for a TV series. Crisp and detailed, and although there are times when I thought the detail was a little "lost" in the blacks, overall it gets my thumbs up....so far:)

    Ive got the new Digi Pacs Series 1-3 on release and have to say they are excellent. Ive only seen a few Sopranos before and am extremley impressed, its like being able to watch the godfather for 39 Hours. Almost finished 3rd series.

    Havnt tried any of the commentries but they are on the DVDs so no worries there.

    At there current price there a steal, go and get them before they hike the price.
