Blu-Ray Vs. HD-DVD - Page 3

post #21 of 25
It also depends on the movie. Some movies just look better then others. And unless your viewing on a huge projector screen then i think the difference wont be that great. The good thing about blu-ray which may prove better is it allowes for alot less compression. In fact i will double check i believe the sound is uncompressed on blu-ray.

For the most part, newly released titles that exist for both BR and HD DVD are exactly, or near exactly the same. I have both a Toshiba HD-A1 and PS3 and the only reason I have more HD DVDs is because I use analog audio from the Toshiba to play Dolby TrueHD(tm) and I don't want to kill the PS3 laser by playing movies (if necessary). If there's a BR only movie, I'll get the BR. If it exists for both and is TrueHD compatible, I'll get the HD DVD.

However, I'll also read reviews and see if there's a difference between both versions.

Now I have no proof behind this comment,

However as I can see things at the moment I personally beleive that Blu-ray is more likely to hang around than HD DVD. If you are a person to collect his films i a certain format you may wish to stick with Blu-ray.

Just using the indicators we have to judge this by, I agree with the above. After seeing that my local Fry's only carries Blu-ray discs and also Blockbuster video, add to that the fact that Blu-ray is outselling HD-DVD and has more movies out on its format, I think the safest bet is Blu-ray and is the reasoning I had for purchasing one. If you do decide to get Blu-ray, I highly suggest looking at the online video rental from Blockbuster! I get my movies in 1 day and all shipping (sending and receiving) is free!

Indeed. Im simply going by the indicators also. This doesnt mean HD-DVD is going to dissapear but IMO Blu-ray is the stronger format ..atleast for now.
