When I was in high school in the mid-90s, my parents got me the National Geographic CD archive as a Christmas present. I seem to remember the 30+ disc set ran something around $120 when it came out.
I just saw an ad in this month's NGM about their new DVD Complete collection (looks like it runs to December 2008); Amazon has it for under $50. This is top of my Christmas list for the year; I'm just curious if anyone's seen or used it and can comment on the quality of the scans. NGM's website claims they're scanned at 1200 dpi; I'd love to see a side-by-side comparison between the 2009 DVD set and the 1996 CD set.
Does anyone already have a copy? I'm given to understand it's only been on sale for two or three weeks now.
