Default which version of Casino Royale to get?

I'm looking to pick up Casino Royale but don't know which version to get. I don't care about extras, and the first one is cheaper. Does one version have superior A/V quality to the other or are both about the same?

They both have the same transfers, its just the extras and packaging that differ.

I suggest the Australian import for the full uncut presentation.

The review on this site suggests that the collectors edition has an improvment in AQ

Yeah, but they have both been reviewed by different people, so you cannot really judge it based on that.

If I'm not mistaken the newer release does have a higher bit depth and sample rate.

Yeah, but the reviewer of the collecters edition has seen both versions and reports the collecters to have an improvment in Audio

I'd go with the 1st release because I have a feeling that it's going to be going out of print this year (if it hasn't already).

I have the Thai uncut movie-only DVD and the uncut two-disc Australian DVD with poker set in a aluminum case.

I wanted to hold out for the Aussie import but perusing the Walmart Black Friday displays, I found the US two-disc collector's edition Blu-ray for $10. I will never be able to get the Aussie release for that low.

Right now, most Walmarts have it for the normal price of $15 so if you can get the Aussie release for that low then get the Aussie release. If not, the US two-disc set is the better value.

How many more minutes of screen time is added in the uncut edition? Does it make a difference?

The C.E is less than $15 at Wal-Mart right now, so for a $2-3 difference i would definitely go for that one, rather than the first release. I haven't heard the LPCM 5.1 (48kHz, 16-bit) AQ from the non C.E version but the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 definitely sounds fantastic. Anyway, like i said, for a mere $2-3 difference i'd go for the C.E.

If I recall it's under a minute?

That's it? That's not worth it then, you might as well watch the theatrical cut. It's virtually the same runtime.

There are some pretty obvious cuts (jumps) in the first cue of the score though that I found distracting and would rather have the uncut version for that alone.
