The vast majority don't have these in hand yet. There's a shortage of these sets in fact.
I just got my copy this evening.
Here's my brief thoughts on looking over I-IV. I still need to look at V and VI, probably do that tomorow.
I've done a quick breeze through of TMP-TVH. The bump in detail is quite something. TMP has a lot of detail.
The movies generally look OK on my 50" Panasonic plasma, but I wouldn't want to watch ST:IV on a larger screen. TMP-TSFS look decent. TVH gets waxy faced and it starts to get obvious even on my 50" set from 7ft back.
I would bet anyone with a nice home theater projector would be appalled. It's fine with my setup, but I can see it, and I wish they hadn't done it.
The set leaves me rather torn. For the uninformed non-videophile who watches a 42" flat panel from 8ft. back they'll never know (since they're not even sitting close enough to resolve very much detail from HD) they'll like it. It of course does look quite a bit sharper than the DVDs.
EDIT: Oh yes the audio on all of them has been superb. Which is an important consideration too.
