This is the BEST of all versions, and Colin Firth is the Ultimate "Mr. Darcy".
As for the DVD quality, it has been remastered to look clear and crisp - colors have never looked so vivid!
You won't be disappointed. :)

Restored Edition was worth re-buying

"After lots of confusion on which reviews were pertaining to the restored edition and which the original, I finally decided to just get it and I was NOT disappointed! The film is amazing, and many will give details on that - this review pertains specifically to the technical changes in the restored edition.
I was SHOCKED how many details were lost in the original version. Having worked in a photolab for over a decade and having a degree in photography I am very much of a color snob. The quality (or lack thereof) in the original version was disappointing - the fact that I watched the movie time and time again speaks to how good the acting and film were to overcome the visual lack luster.
I oooo'd and ahhhhhh'd in each scene seeing details with fresh eyes on the new version. My biggest complaint is that sometimes the skin tones looked OVER saturated, causing people to look a bit on the red or orange side. But I would happily put up with that for all over the rest of the splendor the colors bring. The rooms in the houses truly look lush and rich - beautiful tones, not just beautiful shapes and textures.
Truly worth the investment as this is by far still the best Pride & Prejudice available on film :)"
