              The quality of the scans are very poor. The navigation through the product is poor. Trying to actually read through these is very unpleasant. The pictures did scan well but the articles themselves are blurred and hard to read.

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

                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.

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

                  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.
