There is an interactive episode feature for each episode on the Blue-Ray version that I don't think is on the DVD version. It's similar to what they did on the Rome DVD's (information text and video pop-ups on the history of the period and production info) which is pretty impressive. This feature could make an impact on your opinions if it's not on the DVD version.
I haven't really gotten too deep into the set yet- like I said, just the first two episodes and just the interactive episode feature for the pilot episode so far. Between the regular episode, the interactive feature on each episode, and audio commentaries on 6 of 12 episodes, I could watch each one 2-3 times.
I haven't gotten to the extras, but from the descriptions of them I think they are essentially features that ran on TV in the run-up to the show's premiere. Not necessarily bad, but not new either. I will say though i've gone through the Character Dossier feature on the first disc- I did think it was a nice feature and interested to see how it expands on the remaining discs.

Also, the enhanced viewing has a ton of great stuff, but I wish there were less interviews about how awesome everything and everyone on the show is; that gets old really fast. Also, I groan each time Terrance Winter pops up to explain the perfectly obvious about what's going on in different characters' heads.
