    I´ve got the R2 Special Edition released couple years ago.
    Never been happy with the transfer though.
    Picture Quality that is ,always found it lacking in the detail division.
    Is this the version for me????
    All the reviews of this are not comparing these two versions (of course).
    And all say this transfer is great comparing to the original US version which was according to all reviews i´ve seen horrible.
    Also you do get the original Mono sound on this R1 special edition which means alot too me.

    So you guys how is it???
    Should i double dip (or rather triple dip this DVD,i had the original R2 version also)

    Cheers

    I have both the re2 SE and the old reg 1 version. The region 2 has better pic quality for me. the reg 1 is very grainy. Dont know about the new se reg 1 though

    Well received my R1 special edition yesterday and it´s nothing new.
    It appers to be transfered from the same source as the R2 special edition.
    The same lack of detail and blurry picture in the 4´th of july celebrations.
    They just don´t seem to have a better quality print. :thumbsdow
    This is the "best" looking transfer we will ever see of this classic and it´s a shame :rolleyes:
    Extra wise it´s the same as the R2 special edition plus the featurette that was on the original DVD (which is not on the R2 special edition).

    Cheers
