Having watched Star Wars I knew I had to see this early work of George Lucas, but with all the reported "enhancements" I once again bought the blu-ray and didn't watch it until after seeing the fan-restoration. While not a massive fan of the film in any form, with TMY2C's cut the aesthetic is maintained in the way that it isn't in the Director's Cut (where the added elements feel alien among the low-budget original footage) and you are not distracted from the story, even when the video quality unavoidably takes a hit.

Even with that I would think that one would be unaware that they are watching a fan effort (such issues crop up too in official restorations), this is definitely the version I would recommend to somebody else.
