    Just spent about 25min going over the detail and comparing with the standard DVD version. I don't understand why Microsoft wanted to showcase this encoding with their WM9 codec, it's just about on par with the DVD. There's even a little insert in the case:

    Curious what size display you're viewing this on.

    Viewed on a 15" LCD with a 400:1 contrast ratio. I have a 17" flat screen CRT here but didn't think it was necessary to switch.

    Interesting - I've been hoping someone would post a review of this. I think it would be interesting to hear what you think about the standard dvd transfer and the WM9 version on the same display.
