    I've got a R1 SE on order so will report back with a comparison between the DTS v DD track, and black levels. :thumbsup:

    I need a new mouse mat :D

    Just watched the DVD and it has a great picture - black levels were really good, and I was watching it on my Panny AE200.

    One thing that has confused me was Tarrantinos death in the movie.. I am sure I remember seeing how he got shot up.. Although it was a long time ago now! One minute he was complaining about not being able to see, next he was dead. Or looked dead..


    Anyone?

    OK - I've had a quick look at both R1 and R2 DVDs and I think picture quality is better - more solid looking, less washed out and with deeper looking blacks - on the R2 release.

    Soundwise the Dolby Digital 5.1 track on the R2 is fine, and there was no real difference between this and the R1's DTS track (in fact the R2 DD track seemed a little louder, if anything!).

    I also preferred the R2's menus... !

    :)
