    i don't like sony getting a foothold... i'd bet their royalties are higher than hd-dvd... they make hardware that competes with other vendors version of blu-ray... thus their competition has an added expense that sony doesn't have to pay.

    Very true idjut. We were just discussing in one of my classes how when there is competing formats it is rarely the better product that wins.

    Wow, somebody who gets it.

    I would've thought after the debacle that was Beta, UMD, MiniDisc, etc., people would never embrace another attempt by Sony to create a media standard. Oh well, what actually led to the current situation is little sketchy, but it IS what it IS.

    Well, *hopefully* the war went on long enough for Sony, the other studios and the CE manufacturers to get a good sense of the price point where the "regular consumer" says yes to HDM.

    At the end of the day I just want a solid, HD media experience, that doesn't cost an arm-and-a-leg.

    I'll be investing into a BD solution +very+ soon. I may, or may not sell/bail on my existing HD-D gear/media (though a quick offer turned up 2 or 3 buyers almost instantly, so that' one possible direction).

    Yeah I'm happy with DVDs, until I'm forced to move on.

    Same here. I don't need an HD movie, to me it all looks the same.

    After having had HD-D for a few months, I'll be migrating to BD pretty quickly. I'm planning on replacing 300 and Blade Runner Final Cut HD-D with BD versions as soon as I decide on the BD player (might be a PS3, seems like a decent mid-range, plus of course, there's some kind of game machine tossed in there )

    It's better, I don't think that's up for debate - now the specific equipment, movie, person watching might introduce_some_ variance - the BIG difference is whether it's *important* to you and your movie watching experience. We're huge movie enthusiasts, so we like the best experience possible, and without question, that's HDM (whether it's HD-D or BD).
