I just watched the Blu Ray and the picture quality is amazing, I think it is the best quality BD picture I have seen.

All those silly people getting to shops early to queue to buy the blu ray! order online if you can, I got mine through the post nearly a week before the release date here in Britain.

Yep, they were straight forward in telling us of no extras on BLU-ray, so I don't see the problem.

Well I read somewhere that the reason for the Blu-Ray was to have enough space for the best possible transfer of the movie, so to get the best quality picture and audio they could.

The DVD I have no idea why they couldn't put a few extras on though.

It's extremely crisp. I was afraid it would look like crap on the small screen, as do the commercials on tv. But on Blu Ray it's very nice. And this is coming from a guy who watched Avatar in 3D in IMAX.

Nope, I'm not wasting my time watching a terrible inferior version when I have the blu ray. I put the dvd in to see and it's like VHS quality compared.

Oh yes they do, dvds are upscaled in a blu ray so the quality is closer to blu ray quality, but in a non upscaling dvd player, it looks awful.

I have watched the DVD that came in the combo pack. It looked alright, like any other dvd. At times it looked a little fuzzy, but nothing too bad. I enjoyed it.

picked this up. the blu ray/dvd combo. i compared the 2 on my pc since it has a dvd rom and a sony blu ray rom. there is a noticable differece but not by a a huge margin. the dvd version seemed a bit lighter and fuzzier but man the blu ray version was so hi def it wasn't funny.

I watched the blu ray on my "46 sony bravia via hdmi and i'll have to say that film the looked better than when i saw it on imax. it's the best looking blu ray film i've ever seen. i don't think films can get more high def or more "blu ray" looking than avatar. my tv's @ 60hrtz though. my friends "46 bravia runs @ 120 hrtz so i wanna see what it looks like on his tv. must look spectacular.

it's probably one of the reasons why it's the best selling blu ray of all time, dethroning , the dark knight. it sold in a week what did what dark knight did in a year, if i remember correctly.

avatar's the type of blu ray that can be turned on and left on merely for the crisp beauty of it. i have the nice 5.1 surr. snd set up that enhanced it all as well.

9/10 on thae blu ray only because they should've included 3d. I'll be getting that version as well.
