    Is this the best version to get, or should I consider the R1 Superbit?

    TIA

    This might help

    Comparison of versions of Fifth Element

    Personaly I would go (and have gone) for the UK SE.
    I prefer the higher resolution of PAL video and the 2:3 pulldown on NTSC films annoys me especially on sweeping pans

    I have the R2 2-disc SE myself and I have to say that if picture quality is important to you then you may want to go for the superbit version. The R2 SE looked a bit grainy on my projector (Z2). Don't get me wrong, this is a good bargain, just the transfer isn't perfect...
    Maybe this will help -

    It looks grainy on my very old, 29" Toshiba telly! Were you being polite, mrbloke? :smashin:

    Anyone that has viewed and can recall the 'quality' of the terrestrial broadcast of this film, will know what to expect. Grain, scratches, dodgy brightness/gamma... it has it all! :oops:

    Still glad I have it, though! :laugh:

    How about the PAL R4 Superbit version

    http://www.ezydvd.com.au/item.zml/223716

    I had ordered the R1 Superbit (which is superb with a great DTS soundtrack) when I saw this.

    Not seen any reviews on the R4 though!

    I have the R3 Superbit and it's probably one of the best pictures I've seen.
