The transfer is crisp and clean. The show is shot and aired in high-def, and it comes across beautifully on DVD. One of the little details I love is that the episode listing inside the case is created like a MODE magazine mock-up. The only thing that annoyed me about this set was that it is called "The Bettyfied Edition." I am not fond of the trend behind giving box sets silly names to trick consumers into thinking they are getting more than they would if the set was just called Ugly Betty. But that is a really nit-picky complaint for an otherwise outstanding box set.
