Issue(s): Daredevil #53
Aside from some very minimal changes to the script, there don't seem to be any changes from the original story.
We are seeing a lot of these retellings around this time. It's possible that the idea was that now that Marvel was so popular, there was an appetite to share the origins with an audience that maybe didn't have the opportunity to see the originals, perhaps with the added bonus of "modernizing" the art. A more practical explanation, though, is that the bulk of this issue could be used as a fill-in, with only a framing sequence necessary to keep things in current continuity.
In this case, the framing sequence deals with the aftermath of Daredevil's fight with Starr Saxon last issue. Daredevil ended up letting Saxon go, and is waiting for the other shoe to drop since Saxon knows DD's secret ID.
The issue ends with Daredevil deciding that Matt Murdock must no longer exist.
But we'll get to the latest insane twist in Daredevil's secret identity hijinx in the entry for next issue.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: It's not clear that this takes place directly after Daredevil #52, and Daredevil #54 begins with some time having passed after this, so i'm allowing normal publication space between issues.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: Essential Daredevil vol. 3
"I hope you'll be pleased with me" takes on a whole new meaning after what happens to Karen later.

I think that was the tagline on her video boxes.
