Did you actually take a look at the dates of the original posts and then decide to double post anyway? That's a thing that makes me go hmmmmmm.

This is going to be another BETAMAX VS VHS ordeal. I'm staying away from both formats for a while to see what happens. Sure HD-DVD might not have the capacity of Blu-ray, but, you have to think about how cost effective is it really to change to another format. Will it be effective to purchase Blu-ray medium for data storage? It may seem Blu-ray has the upperhand right now for data storage but, the BD-ROM drives are going to cost you a good arm and a leg. No word on the media yet but, I've heard so far Pioneers BD-ROM drive will run you a good $950+. All that and to barely think that regular DVD5's are barely dropping in price and DVD9's are still about $79.99 for a 30 pack. Right now DVD9's will cost you almost close to $100 or more buying in bulks. So what happens after HD-DVD & BD-ROMS are launched? All of your DVD-R players will be rendered useless and we will all have to conform to the new standards ie: purchasing new players. What are you really going to do with that DVD-ROM player? Blu-ray may have up to 8 layers for recording but, have you thought about what would happen if you got a little nice scratch on that BD-R? Sure it might have scratch resistant coating on there but, that does't mean it's going to be 100% protected from scratches. In the introduction of DVD's if you got a scratch on it and if the disc were two layers the second layer would have a lot of trouble being read by a DVD-ROM now think about that nice scratch on a BD-ROM disc that has 8 layers. How hard would it be to read an eight layer disc that has a scratch on it? I'd imagine it would be 10 times harder to read an eight layer disc than a two layer disc. So I wouldn't run out and start throwing money on either formats just yet.

Thumbs up RE : Blu-ray Disc

Blu-ray, also known as Blu-ray Disc (BD), is the name of a next-generation optical disc format jointly developed by the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), a group of the world's leading consumer electronics, personal computer and media manufacturers (including Apple, Dell, Hitachi, HP, JVC, LG, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Pioneer, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, TDK and Thomson). The format was developed to enable recording, rewriting and playback of high-definition video (HD), as well as storing large amounts of data. The format offers more than five times the storage capacity of traditional DVDs and can hold up to 25GB on a single-layer disc and 50GB on a dual-layer disc. This extra capacity combined with the use of advanced video and audio codecs will offer consumers an unprecedented HD experience.
