    Ok since the SS shots showed a couple of spots on the film I decided to pull out my BU disc and see if those same spots were on here and they are. See the pics below. Notice the spot in the shark pic at the bottom on the sharks fin. The other shot has a spot at the upper right corner.

    goto the settings on power dvd and you can make it save the pic without stretching it. the button looks like a pick or a tool symbol

    Right click on the movie when it's playing then select configuration. now while on the general tab select advanced then select the capture tab. Under captured aspect ratio at the bottom select current video window size then ok. Now take a screenshot.

    yea, what he said ;)

    a guy on the other zombi thread said that the SS disc has the 5.1 soundtracks. wasn't the BU disc the only one that was supposed to have a 5.1 track?

    if so, it was rumor wiz. it looks like both versions have a 5.1 mix now.

    Not a big deal, but I'm sure some of you would want to know. SS is the clear winner for me here. Even if there is a slight loss of detail, it looks fucking fantastic, and it has gorgeous packaging and nice extras to boot. Sadly my Best Buy didn't have any today, but I'll check tomorrow. Damn good price too.

    Is it just me or does the SS version look cropped? I agree though, quality-wise it looks about the same as the BU disc. I can't wait to buy it just for the extras and beautiful, sexy packaging. :cry:

    EDIT: Just looked at the screenshots again and the SS version isn't cropped, it's just the way the screenshots were taken... it seems to be squeezed a bit. No wonder the faces look stretched, hehe.

    Wow - clearly for me, the SS disc wins. It has everything that BU seems to have, and a bit more. The yellow haze issue is gone too. SS, based solely on the screenshots I've seen, is better. Let's face it though, they're both hge upgrades to what we had!

    I'm leaning towards the SS version, too. I'm guessing some of the blurring may be due to the way the screens were captured.

    If I had to decide based on the screenshots, I'd go for the SS version, no doubt about it.

    I'm going to try Best Buy again today, but I called yesterday and they said they didn't have it. Has anyone found it at any other stores?

    Case anyones interested, Dvdcompare.net has updated and says now that the SS version is the best one to get, based on transfer and extras. they had preferred the BU version, but that was before the SS was released.
