Others have already covered details on this, so I won't rehash that. Technically the edit is fantastic, I could not detect where any changes were made in the video or audio. I really enjoyed how the story flows in this edit. A very well done take on the movie.

There isn't much I can add to what others have said. The editing, both video and sound, are topnotch with neither having any obvious cuts/transitions. PQ and SQ are excellent, and the pacing of the edit works well. Hal fixed my biggest issue with this film, everyone seeing Starkiller Base destroy Hosnian Prime regardless of where they were in the galaxy.

I just wanted to drop in and say how much I enjoyed this edit! Even though I liked The Force Awakens a lot, I was never enamoured of it, especially in its third act attack on Starkiller Base. I felt the rhyming with Episode IV became too evident and plain unnecessary. Going in this edit, I was skeptic that such an apparently minor restructuring could transform this movie into an absolute blast. Pushing the Starkiller Base firing back to the third act drastically helps the movie. It not only breaks the mirror-structure, but it also injects the background to the Sequel Trilogy with so much more logic, and the emotional payoff comes along with it. The addition of the Leia deleted scene also helps this drastically, and also builds off of the character we see during the Hosnian Prime destruction. I also loved the incorporation of the Rathtar snippet in Rey's vision. Congratulations.
Truly, this is the edit of Episode VII.

Nonetheless, I must say there are two visual imperfections that brought me out of the movie. After the crawl fades away, the starfield seems to change in size instead of simply brightening and panning without resizing. I don't know If this was an issue in the original movie, though.
The other one is the fact that black bars on the left of the frame appeared every once in a while. I don't know why this happened, but I hope you can fix it before you release a V4, which would be the absolute definitive The Force Awakens edit.
I cannot recommend this edit enough! Well done!

Another great edit from HAL9000 that beats the theatrical cut. Adding higher stakes to Starkiller base really sells this movie. This is what Disney should have released. It's certainly what I'll be watching and showing all my friends from now on.

Not going to spend a ton of time echoing what others have already said, but this has become the "theatrical" TFA in every meaningful way for me since its initial release, and with the recent release of V3, I honestly can't see how anyone could prefer the actual original version to Restructured anymore. Technically flawless, narratively superior, more emotionally resonant... it's a crime that this isn't what was actually released in theaters in 2015.
