    So I just got the Complete Series from Shout Factory.

    Well it seems as though some of the episodes experience slowdown, like lag a little bit, but it's not all the time.

    I'm watching it on an HDTV, and on the left side, there's a thin white line going down the side, of course though theres 2 big black bars on either side, it's not full screen.

    I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this, I haven't gotten through all of season 1 yet, I'm only on the second disc.

    I have not had this problem at all. Just finished Season 1 on an up-converting DVD player on my 1080p Toshiba.

    Hm, so I tried in my PS3, and started playing the 3rd disc of the 1st season, it was upscaled and looked awesome, but once the second episode hit, it completely changed, the quality, I mean.

    I've watched all of season 1 on my PS3 on a LED 1080p Samsung and it looked amazing. No lag, lines or problems. Anytime I've had problems like that (lines, picture cut off, etc..) its been due to connection problems with my cables (interference from outlets?). Try messing with your connections and see if that helps.
    As far as extras, haven't had a chance to watch most of them yet, just checked out the character models slide show and that was cool.

    Yeah, my T.V. is also Samsung. But I've noticed that while finishing Season 1....that some episodes look amazing while others look..not so amazing and have a white line down the left side of the ones that look not-so-amazing.

    PS3 upscaled to full screen and using an HDMI cable to connect. I dunno if that's just how the episodes were put on the disc or not. I'm tempted to call Shout Factory and see what they will do.

    and I ordered mine from Shout Factory.

    As in 'worth buying all over again"? I'd like to know too, got the Rhino sets here, and I'm glad they included the final cut where OpOp returns Megatron's spark. Is that on the Shout release?
