Who didn't buy the new Terminator 2 set?

As a proud owner of the original tin case of the Terminator 2 'Ultimate Edition' I passed on the Extreme Edition. I don't own a Hi-Def TV and I'm not too interested in what Jimmy C has to say about the film. So, I passed on this one. What about you?

Of course, I passed on the UE as well...

I was going to pass on it but once I saw how cool the metal case looked I had to buy it.

I have the UE so I passed on the EE. I also passed on the F&F "Tricked Out Edition" I'm tired of studios putting out crap like this when they are so many other things that deserve to be released or re-released.

I have the UE tin case flipper. Won't get the EE (but I wish I had the 2-disc tin).

I've mentioned it before... but i'm not a great fan of Terminator 2 and will therefore NEVER own any edition no matter what 'gimmicks' they use to convince me into a purchase.

On the other hand i think the first Terminator is a great film and would consider any future re-releases (granted, it's a damn fine DVD to begin with)

Didn't buy the EE.

UE is great...no reason to spend $15 bucks on a movie I already own

Passed. Since I have the original (which was free) and the UE, and haven't watched either yet (haven't even opened the UE, since when I got it I wasn't sure if I'd keep it)--I don't need a third one to sit unwatched on my shelf.

Nope, gotta draw a line somewhere.

That and my tv sucks so the improved picture won't matter much to me.

I passed on it as well. I have the UE, which I've always been satisfied with, and I don't have HDTV yet and my PC is only 1.6ghz.

I am a poor college student, but if I did have money to burn, I would probably get this release, I will have it one day, unless the hyper edition comes out before that day

Nope. UE has everything I need. I don't really get around to listening to commentaries much these days, and the transfer/sound on the UE is good enough for my setup.
