Stargate Atlantis first season was a hit and miss one. The opening episode was strong as was the closing few episodes, but there were some points in the middle where it seemed like it was really struggling to find an identity for itself. A few of them felt eerily like Star Trek.

So far the second season of Atlantis has been noticeably stronger than the first, so this DVD may be worth buying just so you can have the start of the series in your collection.
