Here's a decent reason to buy this version and then wait and buy the special edition as well when it comes out.  Actually, here are a bunch of reasons:

1.  So you can watch it now.  Why rent it (and spend 5 bucks) when you spend 20 bucks and watch it several times?
2.  What will the 20 bucks you spent mean to you in four months?
3.  To be able to say to people 'yeah, I bought it.  I own it.'

Duh.

yeah i bought kill bill today at best buy, but they have a special where you can get kill bill and RD for only 20 bucks, i figured mine skips a lot now anyways so i went on ahead and got that. as for people just wanting to rent it or just copying the movie, i call you cheap bastards. how fucking lame is it that you would refuse to buy just volume one now. in the meantime im going to watch it over and over again whenever i feel like it because im not a cheap bastard. i thought about just renting it and burning a copy, but hey, i have morales. besides 20 bucks for kill bill and a new un scratched RD is a pretty good deal.

I just bought the DVD today, and im kinda dissapointed, I mean it barely has any special features!
And I dont like buying different versions of the same movie, but o-well, the music on the menus are kick-ass! ;D

here's my review of the Kill Bill Volume 1 DVD (Region 2, Germany):

PICTURE:
The image itself is nothing too special but the DVD delivers a decent transfer with lots of color and nice sharpness. But the DVD looks as if they had somehow been a bit lazy on detail. the presentation could be a lot more high-res  it seems

SOUND:
The Dolby track does its job very well. there's plenty use of surrounds and the base kicks in nicely. I wish there would've been more constant surround sound in terms of ambience and all but overall this is neat. expect the DTS track to kick even a bit more

MENU:
A very nice job. The menu really has styel. above average

EXTRAS:
Apart from the vol 1 teaser, vol 2 teaser and the vol 1 bootleg trailer (just one of them), there is the "Making Of", which is the one that was shown on TV almost half a year ago, and two performances by the 5.6.7.8s from the movie, in poor stereo quality.


Overall, the DVD serves its purpose as a blank-filler until we fans get something decent.

I hope the pep up the image quality a bit and some EX encoding would be nice as well. and yeah... EXTRAS... where are they....?
