As a student on a budget, I thought it was pretty cruel of my university to insist on this edition. The editor's introduction is informative but not exactly inspiring, and the other 'extras' (annotations, glossary, references, index) I would have thought of as par for the course with a text like this.
The annotation system is a nightmare to navigate as it doesn't work with numbers or page references, only superscript daggers - you have to skip to the back of the book, find the relevant section and then skim until you find the right word reference. It's particularly annoying when the only enlightenment you get is 'Hume discussed this in the last section' or something along those lines.
Finally, because this is a relatively recent edition (or at least more so when I bought it in September 2010) it was difficult to come by any second hand copies. My verdict? Don't fork out for this if you can get a different edition cheaper; the supposed perks in this really aren't worth the money.
