    Default Anyone get the Pacers DVD yet

    I haven't had a chance as I guess it is only available at the Pacers homecourt gift shop. But if you have gotten it, is it just the 4 games or are there any extras???

    A guy over at RATS got it at a Borders. He said the menu's are really cheap, as is the music. Also, video quality ways VHS at best. just the four games, no bonuses or extra features. What do you expect for 20 bucks, i suppose...

    Not sure if you can complain much about video quality from '95 or '98 when you have today's HD standards to compare.

    I pre-ordered mine from Amazon for $22. Should arrive in the next few days.

    As long as I've got the '00 Knicks-Pacers game on DVD, I'm happy.

    I went looking for it today, Best Buy in Avon didn't have it, Wal Mart in Plainfield didn't have it, I sure as hell ain't goin to the home court shop to get it...unless i go to a game in the near future.
    Sorry, I didn't know advertising was illegal here. Someone call the cops!

    I got it in the mail today from Amazon. Just watching the first 5 minutes of Game 6 2000 ECF vs. New York made it worth it.

    Man, if I had a nickel for each time that post above me had been made, I'd have like 40 cents.

    The set is exactly as advertised you get games with a little pregame commentary and that is all.

    Still, having the Bull game with Reggie hitting the shot makes it worth it.

    One MAJOR disappointment.......I thought maybe the eastern conference championship game would at least have some locker room interviews or celebrations shown. There are none. You get the game and a few minutes after with Reggie wearing his championship hat saying to be glad to move on. If folks had known this I suspect many would have changed their vote to the Rik Smits Orlando buzzer beater.

    If anyone has the video "Long Shots: The Life and Times of the American Basketball Association" is it worth seeking out?

    Damn Best Buy by my house didn't have it, despite having about 654984616 Colts DVDs. I'll have to try the one north tomorrow.

    I managed to find quite a few copies of the DVD at WalMart out here in Southern California. I was pretty surprised, it had its own little "new release" section and special promotional area and everything... Pretty cool.

    25 dollars for it.
    Just watched the 2000 ECF game 6... ahhhh how sweet that was.

    I really look forward to seeing the others in the coming days.

    The only bummer, as others have stated- is that there is no commentary or special features... Just the game broadcast with normal commentators (Bill Walton, YAY!!!! *sarcasm off*)

    But still having these four games on DVD is really nice, and the packaging is nice looking as well, a good dvd to have on display around the house if I do say so myself.

    I got my copy a couple days ago and finally had time to watch most of it. I wrote a review for Amazon.com and posted some pictures if you're interested.

    Better Than Old VHS Tape Recordings, But Disappointing, March 15, 2007

    For $22, you get what you pay for with this collection.

    The set I received via Amazon was slightly bent and scratched across the front surface. One of the four DVD's was noticeably discolored (darker than the other three). Didn't bother me much, but for some it may.

    The menus are very very basic. "Play" or "Pick a Quarter 1-2-3-4" for each of the discs. No special features, nothing but the game.

    The video quality is as expected of a basketball game from 1995-2000. Noticeably sub-standard quality on my HD-TV, but again, expected.

    The biggest gripe I have about the set is the somewhat misleading description that the games are "in their entirety and original broadcast form." The game itself isn't edited, and it is in its original broadcast form, but the pre-game shows, post-game commentary, in-between commercial talks, and halftime reports are obviously missing as the game goes straight from halftime to the start of the third without skipping a beat.

    The games themselves are fun to watch, especially the 1994 game with Reggie exploding in the 4th while mouthing off to Spike Lee. However, they could have been a lot more entertaining with additional footage, commentary, etc. The fourth game in this set (2000 ECF Game 6 vs Knicks) will only be entertaining for big Pacers fans who want to relive the joy of finally winning the Conference title.

    I really wish the NBA would have done something special for either Reggie Miller or the entire 90's Pacers team with a highlight set or something of the sort, instead of putting out this plain set with games Pacers fans own or see repeatedly on ESPN Classic.

    Overall, I would recommend this set to the average NBA fan who wants to relive these historic Reggie vs. Knicks/Bulls games, or the Pacers fan who doesn't have these games recorded on VHS. However, for the Pacers fans who have these on VHS, all you're getting is the luxury of having them on DVD without having to do the transfer yourself - yet lacking all the fun commentary and special reports of the original broadcast. For $22, it's a good deal. However, I'd be willing to pay much more for a product that was actually put together with some effort.
