Sit on the sidelines and enjoy DVD until there's a whole lot more data and experience.
Picked this up from a report from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas recently.
" Tape is dead. DVD recorders and hard-disk video recorders are sending the VCR to the retirement home. But before you rush out to buy a DVD recorder, remember that current models can't record high-definition TV (HDTV) movies, which you'll be watching before long. So you may want to wait for an HD-capable DVD recorder. The first ones will show up this fall. Naturally there will be an ugly format war, a la Betamax vs. VHS. This time around it's between a high-capacity DVD recording technology called Blu-ray Disc, backed by most of the major CE and PC companies, and a rival system, HD-DVD, backed by Toshiba and NEC. Pricing hasn't been set, but it's safe to say the first high-definition models will be high-ticket items."
Blue-ray Disk, or HD-DVD, who's gonna win ?
