The UK disc seems to be the best available.
After all the kerfuffle about the cuts to 2 scenes , the German disc only adds to one and then the quality is so poor it's almost pointless.

Despite being only 21 seconds longer than the UK and US discs the German disc does add 53 seconds to the Quaid/Capshaw scene in the train but rather than adding nudity it just makes the scene a bit more steamy. The quality means nothing really of interest is on show.
The other censored dream scene where the guy comes home to find his wife having sex with another man has nothing added.

So unless a steelbook is a must there's little point in going for the German edition although it does include the English commentary and a 1983 VHS quality time coded interview with Quaid.

Anyone interested in the German steelbook for £19.99 delivered let me know and you can buy mine.

How much better is the transfer on this compared to the Scream Factory release?

It's a port of the Scream Factory release, so there shouldn't be any difference.

Their press release said they did their "own additional restoration", but no one seems to be making a big deal about it so I'm guessing it's not really worth the double dip.

To those who own this release, would you say the film itself, the transfer, and the version of it (cut or uncut) is worth a blind buy? My local Cex has it for £8

I bought the US Shout Factory edition, which this is a direct port of I believe. And... I still havenít watched it yet, so I can be of no help to you whatsoever. But it has a cool cover, so Iíd say go for it!

Yes, one my favorite discs. Great transfer, extensive extras... even if you aren't going to like the movie overall, there are enough elements and scenes in there to be entertained by.

If there is one downside it would that annoying piece of score they chose for the menu:
