THE WAIT IS OVER! 😀 I just visited hmv.co.uk and found that the original versions of the Star wars trilogy are available for preorder n-n-n-now, and based on the fact that they’re limited edition im not gona hang around, and im sure none of you SW fans out there want to either, so I dont know about you but im gona go get mine in order to avoid dissapointment..
I’ve seen the quality comaprisons and it blows the laserdisc one away. I’m on the Originaltrilogy.com forum now and they are big into Fan preservations and edits and there is this laserdisc Transfer project called the X0 project. The XO team bought the absolute best Laserdisc player ever made to get their transfers, it gost like $2,500 and weighs like 80 pounds or something like that and it got all of the high end features available for the technology. And even after cleaning it up and doing all that they can the DVD kills it by a mile. The clarity and detail is much more improved. Heres a link to the comparision.
Okay — are we sure that these aren’t screengrabs from the SE trilogy discs a while back? Because those images are bigger than anamorphic, and the DVDs coming out in November will be non-anamorphic. So the quality shouldn’t be anywhere as close as the SE discs, simply because of the size of the image.
