Comparison:

  • Sneak Preview
  • Workprint
Release: May 28, 2010 - Author: Leatherface666 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Workprint (WP): 126:51 (stopped till the last frame)
Sneak Preview (SP): 115 min (without Universal logo & stopped till the last frame, no credits (there aren't any, there's just some music)

The differences of the WP and the SP's not only the running time, but also the fact that the SP's a real movie with score, sound effects etc. The WP is in the true sense of the word a WP. There's no score, no sound effects etc. The WP contains three counters: two are equal to the counters in the SP + one below these two, which rises from R-1 to R-16 during the movie. In my opinion, one owns the ultimate version with the SP. But read for yourself.
I'd also like to mention that the time index might be various and I've probably overlooked sth. or the tape ran just slower.

The SP begins with a textbox which says that version's a sneak preview version etc., then the Universal logo. The WP begins with a counter instead.
