Be careful, in the product's details they say you will be able to download the updates when they are ready. Well, that's not true, I bought the until 2010 version of the Complete National Geographic, and since then NO downloadable update has been made, I got in touch many times with them and they didn't provide me any solution. So if you want to download updates don't buy the Complete National Geographic, because they don't made downloadable updates as they say in the product's details.

P.D. Living in spain it is so much cheaper to download the updates than buy the new dvd's with the updates because of taxes.

It's worth getting it for this price (49.95 at this time) but don't expect National Geographic's traditional picture quality. They probably switched to digital printing sometime around 2000 (haven't pinpointed the exact year yet) and all issues since then look good. But even issues from the late 1990s are strongly lacking in the quality of the pictures.

Rendering is very slow.

On the positive side, the search works as it should and that alone makes this collection worthwhile. Imagine being able to search for a country and read all the National Geographic articles about that country since 1888 until now.

Search engine needs work...

By Armchair Anthropologist

from Yakima, WA

Pros

  • Color
  • Complete Pages

Cons

  • blurry images
  • Blurry text
  • Cumbersome
  • Inacurrate Search

Best Uses

  • Browsing
  • Education
  • Research

Comments about The Complete National Geographic: 125th Anniversary Edition:

The search function is hit and miss. A search for "Mount St. Helens" yeilds "O" results. Yet there are several articles about and including Mount St. Helens, even with THAT SPELLING of the name. A more useful search engine would be an exhaustive concordance. Many of the scans of magazine pages from before 1990 are blurry and hard to read. The scanned pages are uneven and not placed professionally; many are crooked.

Comments about The Complete National Geographic: 125th Anniversary Edition:

I really enjoy this new old (some of it) information. I always learn a lot and children are facinated and learn concerns about where they live, where animals live and the whole world in which we all live. The pictures are very beautiful and you can learn a lot just seeing how others live as well as the environment in which they share their respective habitats.

Very Difficult to Read and Navigate

By greg

from illinois

Verified Buyer

Pros

    Cons

    • Installation Very Slow
    • Pictures Very Small
    • Very hard to read

    Best Uses

      Comments about The Complete National Geographic: 125th Anniversary Edition:

      The installation took more than four hours on a modern machine. When started, the text and images were very small necessitating resizing to view each page and then resize again, and again for each page and similarly for each image.

      Worst possible presentation short of being totally illegible

        Comments about The Complete National Geographic: 125th Anniversary Edition:

        This version is much easier to navigate than the original, which I also have, simply because there are fewer discs. I have been enjoying National Geographic for 60+ years and absolutely love it. I recommend this to anyone who loves and cares about our planet. This set of DVDs is simply the best ever. Look, read and learn....

        It won't Load

        By DIckM

        from Sacramento, CA

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about The Complete National Geographic: 125th Anniversary Edition:

        I'm envious of other people's success with loading this program. In spite of all the recommendations offered by National Geographic, I am unable to load the program. We were really looking forward to enjoying a wonderful program, so are very disappointed that we can't. We will be returning it to National Geographic.

        Gives the Society a New Life

        By MLKahnt

        from Kingston, ON, Canada

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about The Complete National Geographic: 125th Anniversary Edition:

        I initially bought this for myself with money originally planned for Christmas presents. I have decades of the print edition, but in the Internet era, turning to find the right issue for the topic I wanted was not as easy. This gave new life to all of the research and knowledge documented over more than a century. I've bought three more since and given them as gifts. Well appreciated gifts.
