Are you asking if they are combo HD and SD DVD's? If so, no, HD DVD only. The Order of the Phoenix is the only combo in the set, but the rest are HD DVD's only I believe (as they are if you bought them seperately). And to keep the cost down, HD DVD (only) would be the better way to go seeing that many already have the previous 4 on DVD.

Well I purchased the Order of the phoenix on combo, but would love to have the other's as well....I have the other's on SD DVD but the P/Q on HD is so much better, plus the price is about right at this point might wait a little longer to see if something comes down a little more

So, is the Harry Potter Box set of HD DVD's identical to the HD DVD's if you bout them as individual movies? The PQ I mean.

yes from what I have read the box set comes with a few extras and is packaged a little differently...

Of course. HD DVD is HD DVD. The only difference is that I believe many of the individual titles were Combo's.

in all honesty, I wish I had the individual DVD's. The packaging sucks to get movies out. It doesnt flow very well, kind of like a box with a bunch of junk in it.

I ended up going with the box set. Cost about $10 less due to the extra shipping charges with Amazon.
