I imagine many others on here will probably be doing that too.
at least someone understand my point of view!

the album is GREAT (so it deserves my money, no question about it ok? ) and i'll actually buy the CD+DVD version (with std Jewel case and booklet...and Fast Cars) from an UK store next month as i usually try to buy everithing U2 related but this doesn't erase the fact that with just a little effort the collector edition could have been truly perfect (just add 2 pages to the Book containing lyrics and replace the pseudo-hard-paper-case with a single's slim box...i wasn't asking too much,was I ?).

I got pre-ordered it online a month or two ago for £11.99 too and got it in the post this afternoon.
But I would have been perfectly happy to pay the higher price that a lot of people seem to have been paying.

The album is awesome (but then, I already knew that)
The DVD is awesome
The book is awesome

Love it, love it, love it

I am no longer going to buy the collector's edition. The cd/dvd edition is probably cheaper, it has the official cover (which you just gotta have), it has the official lyrics and liner notes (which you gotta have), and it still had the dvd. Judging by what the content of the book seems to be, I don't think I want a book of Bono's pictures and what not.

Sorry, but this collectors edition just might be another ploy to get you to spend more money. They want you to buy the normal and the collectors.

Yeah, I also didn´t like the book, sadly it is the only way I can get Fast Cars.

Oh. And I'm not crazy about the Fast Cars mp3 either. NOT ENOUGH BASS. And you can tell Bono came up with that unimaginative verse style in, say, 10 minutes.

The fact that it has the cd and dvd is good enough for me, but the things inside the book, I was led to understand has been done my Bono or other members of the band? That's true isnt it?
Im sure it is...there's a R.I.P BOB bit on one of the pages, so I assume it was done by Bono/The band.
And that ALONE would sell it to me!

I dont really understand the American Dollar compared to the Pound, but from all the prices ive read from the Americans on this board, it seem quite expensive?
It cost me £11.99 here in the UK....
wow, where did you get it for £11.99?

I just got my Limited edition! A store in Amsterdam is already selling it even though it's not officially out until Monday. Very happy with it! And it was worth the 29 euros I paid for it (even though now I've only got 25 euros left for food until Friday when my wages come in again...).

I'm sure I'll survive! Got the album, dvd and book now. That's enough to make it through the week!

And the BBC is showing a Band Aid special tonight I just saw in the tv-listings. I'll manage...

Well I got it today and it was only £11.99 for me, and I'm impressed with it. Sure it ain't perfect but I am glad I bought it. Lux very cool to me and I like how it is different. Obviously the album is awesome which is the main thing.

I'll just get the normal CD in the future to get the cover/lyrics and to put in my CD Rack.

Vertigo Fly: the same here! I'm getting the normal cd (once I get some money again!) for the lyrics/cover/booklet. I love the special edition...
