I'm not pleased with the changes either... Lucas' constant fiddling is maddening; most especially since he seems so out of touch with his most loyal audience. However, the picture quality is quite good (not what it could have been, but still above average), I expect the audio will be excellent & the incredible supplementary package alone is worth the price of "admission." If you are a Star Wars fan, this will be by far the best way to view Star Wars. Compared to the Special Edition DVDs, you will have vastly improved picture & audio quality and, honestly, who really cares about the extra changes this go around when Lucas already shat on his legacy with the "Special" Edition ("Special" like "Special Sauce"... at Burger King) anyway. If you buy the Blus, you can enjoy the best available picture & audio quality on those times when you can deal with Lucas' tinkering & you can always resort back to Definitive Edition laserdiscs or the 2006 2-disc DVD OOT releases on those viewings where you just can't. If you want to make a statement by boycotting the Blus, be my guest. Just don't pretend that its because of anything other than a strong desire to see the unmolested original trilogy (I completely sympathize with this plight) on Blu as the rest of this package is great.
