    Spotted it on CD WOW last weekend, arrvied today. Absolutely superb. Only managed to get an hour in (had to go to feckin work) but PQ and the DTS is excellent. Theres only 2000 made, I have number 1345. Its region 3, and comes with a bamboo pen, bookmarks, soundtrack and a making of book (albeit in chinese). Just thought Id share that anyways!

    It's an EDKO release isn't it..? I'd buy it if the picture is better than my standard EDKO R3..? Can't find it at CD-WOW BTW, only YESAsia..?

    I havent seen the other versions, but the PQ is very good and the audio is superb. It seems to be gone completely from CD Wow. It cost me €45 which I thought was great value. Finished the movie last night....one word - amazing. I dont know when I enjoyed a movie so much. Great twists, great fighting, just **** hot. My only regret is I took the pen outta the wrapping, but sure what harm. I wont be selling it on...

    A second Japanese SE boxset has gone up at YESAsia, but it looks like it's missing english subtitles... I've just ordered the EDKO SE... Great film BTW

    I tend to find that the Japanese versions of Korean and Chinese movies do not generally have English subs

    Had stayed away form this also due the poor picture quality on the original R3 release which I have at the moment.

    The comparisons in the link posted by zantarous do look to be a marked improvement though. Now what to do..........buy or not?

    Will give it some thought as I would like the set but I can live without I suppose. Just wanted to a better picture.

    Got mine today from cdwow.com (no. 0554), and the packaging is stunning (didn't expect such quality), the book is quality and I can confirm that the picture quality is far, far, far superior to the single disc version (which I have as well). Soundtrack is included as well in a lovely case.

    Stunning set, absolutely stunning. Any fan of the movie who can afford it should definitely go for this set if you can still get it. cdwow look to have sold out (I'm glad I got in when I did).

    This is what Limited Editions should be like.

    Got my boxset through from cd wow. Sounds like I got it just in time. Think it's no.1260. I was so excited!(How sad)! Brilliantly presented. Haven't watched film yet going to watch tomorrow. Can't wait. Loved Hero so expecting it to be brill. Also Zhang Ziyi's in it, no.2 on my 'most beautiful women in the world' list! Roll on tomorrow! :clap:

    Just finished watching 'Daggers' and have to say it's an amazing film. To me I would say it was equal to 'Hero' which is great because Hero is up there with my alll time favourite films :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Hi,
    I paid (I think) £29.99 from cdwow.
    Take my advice and buy it, because there were only 2000 made and they will soon be like golddust.
