Thoughts? Opinions? Views? 
Personally I love them but when I digitized them I consolidated the Singles Box into the 26 A-Sides and the 18 B-Sides. I reshaped the EP box into three folders: those released in 63-64, those from 65-67 and those in stereo. 

What's the buzz, tell me what's happening

Have had a look for these over the years but never found them at a decent price. Maybe I was looking in the wrong places. 

Still need to get the recent vinyl singles box. Would love them to do an EP one.

I spent a little over three hundred for both. I digitized them and they're very expensive mantel pieces. They sound great though.

Unless your a collector, what's the point of this set if you already have the CD's?

For a long stretch of time many of these songs were only available in Mono here. And they sound great. Do they sound as good as the Mono Box? I'd let you decide but they're better than the 87's

Actually, If you look at my pics in my Profile you'd know I have a lot of mantel pieces

Are they in both mono and stereo, or just mono?

Everything is in Mono except:

Magical Mystery Tour appears both in mono and stereo on different discs. It was in Mono on the original vinyl release I believe.

There's also a stereo disc of four songs that were, at the time of its vinyl release in the 80s, hard to find. These are  "The Inner Light", "Baby, You're a Rich Man", "She's a Woman" and "This Boy

In the singles box every thing is in mono up to and including the Get Back / Don't Let Me Down single. Of course You Know My Name is in mono as well.

They (EP and Singles) were in mint condition and sealed. I purchased them in person. I'm fully satisfied with what I paid.

Well, in theory, you could have got both for like 120 plush shipping  The cheapest listing's say they're near mint.  Granted you have to be careful when buying them that cheap.

I went looking on after you first post. I found issues to say the least. 

I'm very careful when I buy things from Discogs. I just bought a British copy of Jimi Hendrix's War Heroes which I haven't received yet. The seller said the disc was gold colored. It just occurred to me it could be starting the bronzing process associated with disc rot. As long as I can get it ripped I'm fine with it. 

I always request pics from discogs sellers and Ebay too if they're using stock photos.

The point is I'm satisfied with my purchase. I have a feeling the equivalent grading of what I got would be close to what I paid especially after shipping which from some countries is astronomical.
