    I've got a 40" 1080p. One of the best.


    and you'd have to TELL me i'm watching blu-ray. Same with you brainwashed retards. Just because someone tells you something looks better, you guys buy in to it.

    It does look a bit better, but it is not significant. At all.

    It is stupid though. Consumer whores are the only ones that give a fuck about Blu-Ray.

    If it didn't come with the PS3, nobody would want one. Why? Simple. It's like the mini-disc of video. Sure, the quality is a TAD BIT better, but hundreds better? 10 bucks per movie better? If you truly think so, you're just buying in to bullshit.

    And I've got some land on the moon if you're interested in buying.

    Whats the big deal really?

    I can buy regular dvds on amazon for $10-$15
    Does better picture quality really matter enough to cough up $10+ extra dollars? Especially if its only a slight difference.

    if you were a video/audio phile it would...if you really care about film it does matter

    if your dvd collection consists of dumb ass mainstream films then chances are you dont care.....if you actually are into cinema and film...then you care

    ^No. If you care about what some company TELLS you is great, you'll care.

    Even with the PS3, blu ray will probably fail.

    you dont have a technical understanding for audio or video so you dont give a shit....when you understand how things work you tend to care more....it has nothing to do with what a company tells you....

    the fact of the situation is that the potential of video quality is higher with blu-ray.....you not being able to see that much of a difference is simply a limitation of your device....not a limitation of the format....

    I have a 32" set in my bedroom...blu-ray wont really help me much there....

    theres a 52" in the living room....blu-ray makes a big difference.....

    ive a/b dvd to hd signals on storage devices on plasma sets....there is a very big difference in signal quality......

    you stretch a 480 line signal to 1080 lines on a bigger set its gonna look like shit.....you do it on a smaller 1080 set and you wont notice the difference as much....a 1080 line signal from the source will give you superior picture...granted of course that the original source material was recorded in that higher format.......

    what movies have you seen in hd that didnt provide you a better picture quality? You do know that blu-ray picture quality surpasses the quality of HD programming from cable or satellite right? ive a/b'd that as well with a copy of the 5th element on blu-ray compared to an HDTV stream off cable....

    since your saying dvd = blu-ray....your basically saying that dvd quality is pretty much the same as HD quality tv

    Your main argument is cost....its a stupid fucking argument...dvd was expensive as fuck when it came out....blu-ray will drop down in price and you wont notice the difference when you have no choice but to buy blu-ray in a couple of years...the same way you were forced to abandon vhs....


    and im starting to think maybe you didnt see the difference with blu-ray because you saw older blu-ray discs...which didnt use the best transfers..some of them looked worse then dvd...if you look at newer discs coming out...theres a big difference in quality...especially with newer films using superior recording HD camera's

    your arguing for the sake of arguing with no validation in any of your statements....

    and these are small images....the difference is magnified when you increase the size of the set your viewing it on

    Point is - Unless looking side-by-side, you'll never notice the difference. Pretend you can to justify your purchase or fanboyism, whatever... but you can't.

    Again, it's like mini-disc. It was better, but not good enough to stay. Consumers need something more than a slightly better picture for a lot more money in order to convert. Blu-Ray isn't replacing DVD. That's all you need to know.
