The biggest problem with the Saturn port are the slowdown issues that are VERY apparent when the game is played on Turbo 3 (Tournament standard speed setting).

I don't mind the aspect of the game here and I usually play on 2 stars, so I still like the Saturn version. However, since I have a Saturn controller adapter for PS1/2, there's little reason for me to play it over PS1.

Anniversary collection houses Hyper SF 2 which is essentially an actual official update to ST. PS2 port is a near perfect translation as the the arcade release for Hyper Street Fighter 2.

Sold!
I'll have to get that for PS2 and to me it would be a viable alternative to SSF2T (and having SF3 would be a nice bonus anyways).
Really though, assuming you never choose the earlier version of fighters, how is it any different than ST? As far as I see, selectable versions IS the update for HSF2.

Yes, i suppose it would be a decent alternative to ST and having 3rd Strike thrown in is def a welcome bonus for sure. It's affordable price point is also another wonderful reason to own SF Anniversary Collection.
It is to my understanding that as a result of meshing so many iterations into one cohesive game, certain characters played under the ST rulebook either lose or inherit a particular trait they had or didn't in CPS2 ST. But i suppose this would only really affect those that play the game at an advanced level...

Yeah, I'm very much casual in my game playing, and even if I did play as a tournament, it would be casual in nature (among friends and such).
...but as I said, I take actual play control pretty serious.

Thanks for your opinions. I will definitely put that in my collection. Don't know why I haven't already, maybe because I mostly played Third Strike on Dreamcast.

If you say so.
I've been known to persistently tangle with SNK bosses though. Usually keep it on normal difficulty, but I tinker with settings as it suits me.

Also, this thread has confirmed to me that SSF2T on CCC2 is a sub-par port. That's really all I was wanting to address.
