I got an R2 copy on eBay at a decent price. It's the German BMG edition with almost no features. I did see some screen shots comparing it to other versions and it looked great. Haven't gotten around to watching it yet, waiting for just the right moment.
I'm curious about PAL DVDs. Will there be a 4% speedup on all R2 & R4 discs? I got the "Hong Kong" TP Pilot, and hearing Coop's voice like that bothered me more than the phasing problems. That was my first experience with the "PAL problem". I almost bought an R2 Season 1 set, but was afraid from what I'd read about PAL that the whole thing would be sped up.
Evidently, some people notice and are more bothered by it than others. I'm just wondering if I have to stay away from all PAL DVDs, meaning R2 & R4 imports.
