My wife and I just watched this edit for our May 4th celebration. Excellent work.

The colors are fantastic, the blend of different editions is flawless, and the quality is everything one could hope for. I really appreciated the addition of the secondary purist audio track, since we do prefer Obi-Wan consciously lying to Luke over saying he himself would want Luke to have the saber.

It is worth mentioning that (as noted in lapis-molari's review) the subtitles only match the main audio track and not the purist, but that is a very minor issue. The subs also tend to paraphrase some sentences. I noticed the different '97 SE audio mix, but again that's a perfectly viable creative choice. None of these affected our enjoyment of the movie.

This is definitely our Special Edition go-to. Highly recommended!
