I have to agree. I've just replied to an off-list email making a similar comment regarding HANZAB at the current discount pricing. It does seem to be of questionable value accumulating a stack out of date volumes at $30-40 each when the money spent would cover a substantial portion of the cost of a volume of HANZAB.

I love because it has excellent coverage,
including indirect coverage via Abebooks, Alibris, Books&Collectibles,

As to the original question I'd say saving up for HANZAB is the first
reference library priority (Andrew Isles has HANZAB discounts at present).
