Subject:        Critique of the Arden Editions?

In light of the current string about single-volume editions, I'd like to
ask people if they have any substantial critiques of the Arden editions,
which are my favorites (I also have the single-volume Norton
Shakespeare, but I tend to disagree with the Oxford editors). I think
annotation is indispensable, and the more of it the better (as long as
one knows it's highly qualified).

In fact, if anyone knows of editions with more annotation than Arden (I
know that the New Cambridge editions have nearly as much, but not of the
same quality), I'd love to know about them (I'll look for the Contexts
editions that someone mentioned).
