I only hope blue ray takes off picture quality over the top was it worth $1000 ? it is built like a tank beautiful to look at and if I will be able to rent new movies that would be awsome stew happy day all

I agree, and in my opinion, most people have never seen how good a 480p picture looks from a standard-def DVD. But as I've said, we tend to be new toy lemmings and we all follow the first one off the technology cliff. Oh're leading the pack, aren't you? Happy

HERE IS MY PERSONAL STORY JUST FOR YOU. When I was in grade school about 1946 o **** I operated the 16m.m. sound projectors for our school (that was the start of my life in electronics) Well the school gave my dad money to rent movies for a school event. Anyway dad took me to this gentlemans house we were taken downstairs and there it was a real small movie theater . On the side walls there were 100s of 16m.m. movies and a projection booth with 2 projectors and 2 huge speakers and a large movie screen. Ever since then I have wanted to have a system like this Now I do hi-def is the neetest thing since sliced bread and the best part is now anyone can have a nice home theater system for very little money MARRY XMAS TO ALL MY FRIENDS HERE AT CNET GOD BLESS YOU ALL now back to my poker game ha ha stew
