The transfer on disc one is however absolutely brilliant. I did a comparison with the Ultimate Edition (R1) and this new version is far better. There is plenty of fine detail on show, with fleshtone and colour looking more natural and better defined. There are also no signs of grain in the print, which was a drawback on the Ultimate Versions transfer. There are also no digital artefacts or any signs of edge enhancement. This is an excellent transfer and it's just a pity I couldn't get the Windows version to play.
The disc also features a Dolby Headphone track.
Overall this version doesn't have quite as many extras as the Ultimate edition, but it nice to see all new featurettes.
If you have the Ultimate edition and are happy with it, then you could probably do without this edition. However the image is stunning, the sound is good, but the hassle of downloading the license for the high def version will put many off.
