If you don't already own a player, which one do you plan on buying?
What planet are you on?
The Blue-ray v. HD-DVD matter seems to have been resolved.
yeppers.... blu-ray all the way! PS3 rocks!
I knew VHS was dead when movies were being released first in DVD format.
It'll be a few years before I switch over--it will depend on $$ (price drops) and when the good stuff isn't released on DVD
I'm thankful I didn't have the money (or desire) to upgrade my DVD players and movies. HD format is dead! I remember the Beta/VHS war years ago. Looks like Blue-Ray is the winner however I'll only buy movies in that format if (and only if) some of my most-wanted titles will be released that way. Of course, without a Blue-Ray compatible player, they will be usless to me until such time.
I can't see me switching over 700 titles anytime soon.
Blu-Ray... The War is over. Just got a PS3...(BluRay 2.0) Best player on the market and well worth the price
I decided when I first heard of the battle of the formats that I was going to wait until the dust settles. And even though HD-DVD has thrown in the towel, I'm still not planning on rushing out anytime soon to pick one (blue-ray) up. Here's why:
(1) Right now the medium (Blue-Ray) is still overpriced imo - so are the players. I'd wait at least until the next generation of units come out and/or some hefty prices drop. By that time we should be able to get a glimmer whether this is going to be another S-VHS kind of story (yep - got one of those. Had laser discs too...in fact I miss my Pioneer m-90 mulitplayer that the storm so kindly relieved me of).
If everything starts coming out in blue-ray and regular dvd offerings start looking skimpy, then we'll know what's coming.
(2) Chances are the next generation of equipment will be hi def dvd recorder/players and or "burners" which will come in future generations of computers.
So when I can get a machine at a relatively "reasonable" price that can burn in HD (providing broadcast signaling ever catches up with it - an "HD" download from your cable system isn't really full HD, you know) then maybe I'll get around to shelling out some bucks for one, if I'm not watchin' cable in the "afterlife" by then.
P.S. VHS isn't completely dead (altho I'm told one can't be found in L.A.) We still use 'em to viddy t.v. shows we can't watch.
I'm not sure I understand what you say. HiDef DVD just died???
Sorry for the confusion. I used the term "high def" to describe the image quality - not to imply a resurrection of the format called HD-DVD.
I thought so. My friend who is an inventor of electronic entertainment equipment says to wait until prices come down. They always do. BTW, i paid $1,099 for my first portable VCR over 20 years ago.
I have HD-DVD and it still works
there going stop disc for HD-DVD Burnners
they will never make a Blu-ray bunner it will take 10 hours covert from MP2 to MP4
Neither. Bit torrent
My older brother bought a Sony Hifi Betamax so he could record
music on it for his D.J'ing job. He paid $1,400.00 for it in the mid 80's.
Blu Ray won the format war, so get blu ray, not HD-DVD as they will stop production of it
I'm in L.A., and I just saw one at BestBuy, if you really WANT one. *shrugs*
Thanks. I'll tell my girlie.
No problem. I like being helpful. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to go wandering, and drooling, in your gallery, for a while. :wink:
all the way!! (although I do have a ps3 as said earlier) what I did was to upgrade the ps3 HDD to a 250GB hitachi drive, and just put what I download onto the PS3 HD. Then all my media is at my fingertips:biggrin1:
My gallery? (blush)
Yuh-huh, I'm SO not believing the shy routine. :tongue:
