[OT]: "Triumph Of The Will" on DVD - Connoisseur/Meridian vs. Synapse

Disclaimer up-front: I'm not a nazi.

Does anyone know which is the better version on DVD? Synapse's is more recent, so I'm inclined to think theirs is the way to go.

Synapse's boasts a new windowboxed transfer from a fine grain print, newly translated (and easy to read) removable subtitles, a short film by Riefenstahl called Day of Freedom (i think) and a very interesting commentary track by some historian. i know the price is a bit higher (usually around $30) but in my opinion the additional material on the Synapse disc makes it worth it. plus i know Don had a lot of restoration work done to the print, and i'm sure it looks much better than the opposition.

Nor am I but I am still interested as hell to see the movie that whipped Germany into a ultra-nationalistic frenzy.
