Transfer Quality Question for James Bond and The Net

Is there much differance from the last editions of Die Another Day and the World is not Enough to the new editions in the ultimate set?

Any differnace from the old to the net edition of The Net?

Yes, I did a search for this question and didn't come up with anything.

While the original transfer was very good, the new one (from screen caps I have seen) is better. I actually like this movie a lot, despite fans discarding it as a James Bond movie.

Although I find TWINE and DAD to be among the weakest James Bond offerings, their transfers are the best I've seen yet (and I've watched both movies in the theatres & on first-run DVDs for comparison). Plus, the DTS audio packs a considerable punch (especially during the action scenes) and there aren't any sync issues with the DAD track like there were with the first DVD release.

The original Die Another Day DVD had horrendous edge enhancement. Has that been cleaned up? I thought D.A.D. was the only of the Bond movies that wasn't getting remastered?

Isn't DAD the only one that dropped features from the original release?

Although Jim's comparison link pretty much says it all, I wanted to confirm that yes, Lowrey Digital has cleaned up the transfer (there is a screen at the end of all the films, including Die Another Day, that detail the restoration process).
