HD DVD Player, Worth Buying? Go Blu-ray!
From my experience owning both an HD DVD player and now a Blu-Ray player I can say that it probably isn’t a good move to buy an HD DVD player. Oh, the quality to my untrained eye is comparable to the Blu-ray player, although Ratatouille [Blu-ray] looks incredible on the Blu-ray DVD player and is the best looking movie you can buy if you want to see how good Blu-ray can be. No, the reason I’m not recommending the purchase of a HD DVD player is because the battle between the two competing DVD formats is over, unofficially speaking and Blu-ray has won.
When Disney decided to go with the Blu-ray format I thought that was the first big red flag for HD DVD, but now that Warner Bros. will support the Blu-ray DVD format the battle has been lost for the HD DVD format. Initally the biggest reason I bought the HD DVD as to be able to see The Ultimate Matrix Collection [HD DVD] and since the movie was made be Warner Bros. that is what I had to purchase. Well, now Warner Bros. has moved and the Matrix will be available for the Blu-ray format and I’m fully confident in stocking my DVD collection with Blu-Ray DVD and have no fears I’ve boarded the Beta max train of obsolescence.
If you are considering a high definition DVD player, stick with the Blu-ray DVD players, although the HD DVD players have come down in price lately, but that is because they will soon be part of the dinosaur crowd.
