                          Loved it until I got to the reason I bought it. In being the 125th Year compilation I was missing ONE [only one:)] very significant [for me] reverse of the October 2008 reverse map "Jerusalem's Holy Ground."

                          What's up with this. I already had the "Complete" NG through 2010 AND IT WAS MISSING FROM THAT ONE TOO?? That was a main reason for gettng this edition.

                          BTW I wish you'd make it easier for us MAP NUTS with an EXTRA index for maps through the years!

                                  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.
