HD-DVD, Blu-Ray… DVD


There are a lot of options out there right now, and people are coming out with the second generation Blu-Ray and HD DVD players. I am seeing more Blu Ray titles being sold, but when it comes to quality both are pretty damn good. Samsung, Toshiba, LG, and other manufacturers are all trying to come out with the perfect player. Some concentrate so much on the new formats that they forget about the DVD format, but every year there are leaps and bounds in this technology. Things seems to be a lot clearer this year, but I still want to give it some time.

Most of my collection like everyone else is now DVDs, it was a lot easier to switch to DVDs since the quality and benefits over VHS were clear as day, but with two formats to choose from we don’t which camp we wan’t to be in or in both. They are also including these players and burners in PCs, so as it spreads in PCs it will be used more then before. I have to say that the quality of each format is nothing short of fantastic but I still want to keep my DVD collection and see how this goes.

  1. we’ll just have to wait and see which format will “win”
    but i belive that blu-ray has the upper hand, first of all its from sony, who release a good number of movies every year, so their titles are obviously going to make it to blu ray, and then u got the playstation which will eventually find its way into more and more houses.
    i think by the end of 2007 there will be a very clear picture on who will be on top of the next gen media type

  2. Zombie: I never had that huge a VHS collection so I started with DVDs! And I do have a good collection!

    Yazeed: I stil dont know! You would be surprised, they sold more HD DVD units then they did Blu Ray, its just the PS3 made a splash with the PS3! So its up in the air!

  3. everytime i go to best buy and look at the HD DVD for the xbox360 i feel so tempted to get it but then i think to myself .. na i should wait for a clean winner .. i have a 42 HD plasma and my cable provider have 3 HD movie channels that should keep me going for a while till HD players go down in price .

    its gonna be a stalemate.

  5. well the hd-dvd players were available way before the bluray players were available

  6. DJ: I know what you mean, I’m tempted too!

    Calrsb3rg: I don’t think so, we shall see its only a matter of time!

    Yazeed: yup they were, but the Blu-Ray gets popularity because of integration with the PS3
