I was very excited to see this in AVCHD and am glad I waited. The quality is amazingly crisp with the exception of a few artifacts in deep blacks. This only happened though for a short time. Otherwise it was breathtaking.
No noticeable audio problems. I heard what Landstander heard (dialog quieter in places) but I’m not sure this is exclusive to Avatar. I’ve heard this in many other fanedits (as well as commercial releases) and they all have similar problems. I’m not going to hold Kevinicus responsible.
This cut is much better than the official release (though I still like it a lot). It is quicker paced, no voice overs and much of the environmental vs industrial has been vastly toned down.
Overall, 9 out of 10.
