There isn't one that covers everything unless but that one from Columbia that came out a couple of years back. I heard there was packaging problems with glue on discs Ermm Most of the other sets cover certain periods in time in various formats.

I heard great reports about the Jack Johnson one. I have "The Plugged Nickel" one only myself and everything else I have are albums which I reckon is the best way to go and that way you can cherry pick.
 
I have heard bad reports about "In a Silent Way" set as well.
 
The second Quintet below I would recommend altrhough I do not own the set I have most of the material. Great time for Miles.
 
Miles Davis Quintet 1965-1968 (Exp)
 
The Complete Live at the Plugged Nickel 1965
 
The Complete Columbia Album Collection
 
Maybe they have fixed the set's issues above. Check it out. Expensive but if you hardly have any it could be cheap when calculated against buying albums.

Ive never gotten any of the box sets since a lot of that stuff overlaps from other albums, and I have just about all the essential ones. The only one I'd like to get is the complete Plugged Nickel set since those performances are pure fire.
