    Hello,
    I'm interested in acquiring a DVD of Men in Black and I've noticed that there is:
    - Deluxe Editon
    - Collector's Edition
    - Limited Edition
    Leaving aside the issue of sound formats please [​IMG] , is there any difference in the image quality of the film presentation? (I can look up the various other features at online store sites, so I'm only wondering about picture quality differences.)

    I don't know about the image quality (I've heard it's the exact same on all the discs, but never experienced all of them myself), but I'm somewhat of a specialty packaging nut, so I went with the very slick-looking LE.

    I've seen all four and found the image quality to be identical for each of them. I'd recommend the Deluxe Edition. It's equal in content to the LE and costs less. (Okay, it loses a reproduction of some production art, but otherwise it presents everything from the LE, and it retails for $15 less.)

    The choice is obvious. Buy the MIB Limited Edition. Why not have the best if it's available. Just my opinion.

    The DTS Collector's Edition is the one to get.

    If you want the most bang for your buck, the Deluxe Edition. The SRP is $5 more than the original Dolby Digital release ($19.99), and it contains 98% of the extras from the LE along with the MIB 2 promotional material.
    The LE still retails for $40 and the DTS version, which loses a tiny bit of video quality due to the DTS track and all the extras, still retails for $30.
