About a month ago i bought this same software from Amazon and the one i bought was/is the retail version (it was something like $99)... The box, multiple CD's, basic instruction pamphlets (though you'll get far better info here...).
I'm using it now in fact to begin the transfer of my miniDV tapes to HDD and so far it's soooooo easy to use. At $99 it was a great deal. For the $75 on-sale price it's an absolute steal.
For programs i pay for (unlike Java, Adobe Reader, etc), i've pretty much moved away from download only situations. I like having the physical CD/DVD on-site for those just-in-case moments.
