So, what is the difference? Besides having to buy another player and the same movies again. It's all a ploy to take more money from you.

DVD's are here to stay... Blu-Ray is just a passing fancy at the moment since as I type this better tech is being developed in China and will be out sometime in the next one to two years.. Besides Blu-Ray is rather expensive and not everyone can afford it

How long are you going to keep making topics blabbing on about how good blu ray is and asking when people are going to change and so on...

I will keep buying dvds as long as they are avaliable. It's stupid to say there is no difference because there is a change in the quality of what you see on blu ray, but not enough to be important if you have a good television, and even an upscaling dvd player.

Still seeing it at a good cinema is still the best way in quality.

I am never buying another DVD, the VHS to DVD was a big step up, but the DVD to Blu-Ray was just amazing smile All respect to the people that are not "quality" snobs and think DVD quality is just fine, but there are alot of people who have a stick up their behinds because they want to have all their movies on Blu-Ray but are angry about the fact that their DVD versions are inferiour to the Blu-Ray releases.

The difference between VHS to DVD was a lot compared to DVD to Blu Ray.

I do like your comment on the 'quality snobs' though, that seem to try to force and think they are superior to others who still watch DVD... idiots.

It might be going by the tech specs, but on the eyes it's vastly different.


It's not big enough in quality to warrant going straight to blu ray, unlike VHS to DVD.

Not missing out on an important change. Doesn't make the film experience inferior.

I do see great differance on my TV, and I think the film experience dose get alot better with Blu-Ray, but then again this is very subjective.

Also some movies like say a regular comedy (shall we say Monthy Python or perhaps American Pie) don't care too much about the quality there, but if it's going to be a movie like King Kong or Gladiator I would want that to be in Blu-Ray because of the superiour camera/effects, and say cinematography which is normally better in thse types of movies.

I definitely see way more of a difference from VHS to DVD, it's like night and day.

That said, I'm gonna keep buying DVDs. I don't wanna drop the cash for a Blu-ray player or PS3, plus the extra cost for Blu-ray discs. DVDs are much more affordable and much more plentiful. I can't even get a ton of the movies I'd want in Blu-ray, they're non-existent.

1) No, that's not fact. Like, at all. Blue Ray is DVD with different quality. DVD from VHS was an entire reformatting.
2) "Quality snobs", huh? Hypocrite.
