High cost could kill B-Ray.
Back in the VHS/Beta wars one of the things that killed Beta was the high cost. AS VCRs gained in popularity the prices came down, BUT VHS prices dropped fast than Beta prices to point that Beat machines cost twice as much as VHS. And we all know who won! John
I WILL LOVE MY BLUE RAY UNTIL I DIE
But at 69 who cares,. Also at my age when someone offeres me a lifetime warrenty I usually crack up .If blue ray fails I still will be able so see Casino Real over and over and over. Rite know I'am looking for an old tube short wave radio like the ones they used in world war two. I know those beauties had millions of controls to play with so I can twist the night awayMy last thought for today I grew up with knobs even the telephone had a knob to turn The best knob was the volume control it sort of gave you the feeling of power volume buttons are crap. So what the manufatures did they would put use a volume control what would give max. volume at about +2 so just a tweek of the control you could blow out the windows man that was power stewe
Until the contents come down in price,
I will not buy either players. I personally think blu-ray can drop their price very easily if they chose to do so; I think the price are artificially jacked up (just like oil/gasoline).
AH THE ONLY WAY TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM
The only reason I bought the Blue Ray player is that I'am getting so old and I wanted mabey my last toy . Yes its a true mess. I go rent a movie, and find out its in the h.d. formatI alse feel that folks that buy a PS-3 player are not going to watch blue ray movies on them so thats not going to help, The only answer to the problem is if they make a disk with blue ray on one side and h.d. on the other. But blue ray does put out a beautiful picture look like 70mn.m. film good day stewe
I'm happy....for now...
My hizzle dizzle is so nice as it is, that having BluRay at this time is almost pointless. I dont see enough hd-bluray dvds out in the marketplace at cheap prices to justify the machine. As it is now Netflix GameStop keep me supplied with plenty of SD videos that look great on my tv. If I need a dose of HD I just turn over to antenna and watch Nascar or Nature.
As soon as I see more HD content on disk, I will spring...now...theres just not enough.
BlueRay ahead by 70% wow!
Blu-ray seems to have the upper hand seeing as there is more industry support for it over HD-DVD. When Universal finally gives in and releases movies in Blu-Ray it will be game over for the war.
AERO A LITTLE BLUE RAY GOOD NEWS
