Blu-Ray has better players? No PIP. No interactive features.
No ethernet plug.
All HD DVD players have these features. And have had them
since day one.

You are mentioning features, I was referring to the players themselves. BluRay has the better quality mfg players Sony, Panasonic and Onkyo while Toshiba is the most common HD DVD player. Toshiba is fine but not one of my favorite choice of brands.

Also I prefer my 7.1 audio above the features you mentioned.

Brands are irrelevant as a whole. It's only when you consider specific products from a manufacturer that brands come into play.

If you were to say that as a whole Sony is a good manufacturer, many would disagree.

Blu ray has better players, better picture quality, better audio quality much greater studio support and much greater CE support. It is also beating HD DVD in sales of both players and movies. Unless you buy both there is no sense in buying HD DVD

OTAHD agree in part, but at the end of the day with HD DVD your choice is Toshiba, Toshiba or Toshiba while with BD you have a choice.

how would you know, you never tried to make an intelligent post on here.

On the other hand people don't need to listen to me the facts are all around them and extremely clear to anyone that does not have his head in the sand because he wasted his money on HD DVD.
They can look at this ad by BVHE


or read Michael Bay's comments on Transformers HD DVD
[Link: usatoday.com]
where he sees that the HD version could be much better if it was a different market.

or look at [Link: blu-raystats.com] and [Link: hddvdstats.com] to see that the vast majority of BDs have lossless (or uncompressed audio) while the vast majority of HD DVD have lossy

or they can listen to bozo liars like you or many other HD DVD supporters and any HD DVD supporting company. Like when Paramount tells gullible morons that Transformers sold 190k on HD DVD when the official VS numbers are 90k.

I guess in your case it is easier to try and trick people instead of giving intelligent reasons why they should waste their money on HD DVD.

A shame that these threads always have to degenerate into this nonsense. All indications are that both formats are going to be around for a while. Further, those who own both will tell you that there is essentially no difference in image quality between the two (if thy're honest).

I own the A20 HD DVD player and love it. It's never, not once, stalled, locked-up, juddered (?) or any other malfunction. Standard DVD upscaling is great. My old SD DVD collection never looked so good. And, I got this player for under $200.

Now I intend to buy either the 40gb PS3 or the Samsung 1400, depending on reports on the noise level of the newest PS3 (would prefer this player).

In any case, for less than $600 I'm covered for both formats, far cheaper than the coming dual-format players.

Don't see the reason for all the squabbling over formats. You're covered on both. Then, when future BOGO (buy one - get one free) deals on HD disks comes along it won't matter which format's on sale. In fact, I hit the CC/Amazon two for one sale two weeks ago and bought a bunch of Blu Ray disks (along with many HD DVD disks). They're now sitting in the cabinet waiting for the new Blu Ray player.

This has nothing to do with squabbling over a format. On the contrary, numerous forum members have and continue to discuss the different formats of high def DVD and the pros and cons of the players all the while being civil. Unfortunately there is one member who continues to resort to insults, name calling and worse. I for one have brought it to this person's attention earlier on before he degenerated to what we have today. Just do a bit of research into past posts to see for yourself. matter of fact, in some circles the posts by this person could be used as a defemation or slander suit as his/her posts are intentional and are harmful.

IMHO, I think at the end of the day this person should just be ignored. No one should answer any of his posts.

on that we agree it is about a handful of posters without integrity posting total BS in every post, and hate it when facts are thrown in so their constant replies it to tell others not to listen to those posters.

Anthony if you think that Transformers was bad then you really should check out Fifth Element on Blu-Ray! The SD DVD version looked and sounded better then the Blu-Ray version. That must mean that Blu-Ray is JUNK!!! As for the audio comment that Blu-Ray has more lossless audio who cares? Seriously the VAST majority of consumers give a damn about that! If they did they wouldn't be using their iPod with an FM modulator for their daily commute.
Who says you can't put 61" plasmas up on cantilever mounts using toggle bolts? <---Thanks Ernie ;)
