I don't know if one person commented on all the Vedas but whatever Suktams I studied all of them were commented upon by Sri Sayanacharya.(The commentaries are available in printed format but I don't know about online links.)
All traditional Panditas give nearly same meaning but a few explain mantras in quite distinct ways.Some employ Vedantic ideas to explain mantras and some even use Puranic narratives.
And in my personal opinion it always good read at least 5 or more commentaries for a mantra rather than sticking to a single person views.
