6. Re: Morning Tech Bits May 15, 2009, 10:44 tron
i own blu-ray because: i own an HDTV and wanted a player that would upscale my existing DVD collection; i can find blu-ray discs used or on sale in the $15 - $20 range; blu-ray discs come with all the extras that are on the DVD special editions.

that said, i am still hesitant to go "all-in" with it. i only own a few blu-ray discs, and use it primarily to upscale my DVDs. if blu-ray catches on in a big way, i'm ready - if it doesn't, no big deal. i only invested a few hundred dollars in it, and it has already paid off as a DVD upconversion unit.

i do hope it takes off though. the blu-ray movies do look absolutely incredible, the extra features are amazing, and the menus on blu-ray discs are very fast and much more intuitive than DVD menus. to all of you waiting for the 'next big thing', when do you expect it will arrive? i don't see anything coming in the next few years...
