I've got 'em.

I watched part of the original Empire (which I haven't seen in years) and I'm still amazed by what LFL and ILM were technically able to achieve considering what they had to work with.

Anyway, the quality is pretty good considering what I was expecting. The video won't blow anybody's socks off and this is definitely a flawed master by modern standards. Blemishes pop up from time to time and, to me, small object detail is substantially less than new DVD-authoring techniques are capable of. That could be due to a non-anamorphic master being used. I also noticed a few minor instances of color smearing. The black level seemed kind of weak too.

One thing I think fans will universally like is the animated menu. Again, I've only seen the Empire menu but it ROCKED. It was an animated of the speeder/Imperial walker battle on Hoth. It was a brief "animatic" style animation, but I think it actually works better (in some ways) than the ridiculously extensive menus on the other discs.

In short, I think many of Zion's original points are going to be seen here.

Sounds like they did it on purpose allright, but why would they not want a Anamorphic transfer? Based on your experience, they could have done it very easily. Why go against the system that is now a standard on dvd?

Just finished watching ANH or rather Star Wars and this is the most I've enjoyed watching it in quite a while. The quality is better than I expected, although I'm watching on a 27" tv, (still saving for a widescreen) so the imperfections probably weren't as apparent as they would be on a ws setup. I have a couple bootleg copies but never watched them much because the quality always hindered my enjoyment. This version is not perfect but it didn't interfere with my enjoyment, I got lost in the story again. Some scenes looked better than others, the outdoor Tatooine scenes seemed to me to be some of the more grainy areas.

I'm not an SE hater but like I mentioned in another thread, the color timing issues on the 04 set are what really prevent me from watching those versions. It was great to see this film again with the right colors, no annoying blue tint to everything or desaturated lasers and other oddities. Some little things I really enjoyed while watching this disc (excluding the obvious OT vs SE stuff) were:

-The 77 crawl. I had never seen it before except for the excerpt on the EoD doc so it was cool to see that and I think I may now prefer it to the EpIV ANH version.

-Starfields! It was great to see some nice bright starfields again even though they do blink in and out occasionally. It's a shame they've been so dimished in all later versions.

-This was a surprise, but Luke's lightsaber on the Falcon was actually fricken blue! Even the couple shot where it was white still had a hint of blue, it was just washed out. Even the sabers during the duel looked good to me, Vader's could just use some extra glow.

"no annoying blue tint to everything or desaturated lasers and other oddities."

Not quite true, I think THX did retime the movie for the LD masters, there's still a little blue thing going on (look at the opening Tatooine matte painting) and I think they definetly look a little desaturated, but it's a hell of a lot closer to the film than the DVDs, and I think it's a global issue across the whole film uniformly, and therfore a pretty easy fix, rather than that fucked-up shot-by-shot random colour pallette crap LFL shoved onto the shelves in '04.

But, yeah, if you look at some of the fine detail like stars, and (what I never noticed before) the detail in the edges of impact flashes, particularly whenever the blockade runner takes a hit, it's stunning to see just how Lowry's algorithms chews up and averages out fine detail - there's stuff in this crappy old master tape that is just an amorphous blob on the 2004 transfers.
