All I`m saying David is, and you already know how I feel about these format wars, like Andrew, I`m tired of firmware updates, tweaks of any sort, stuff that is really uneccesary that hinders your enjoyment of your system. I`m not bashing Blu-Ray. These guys need to get their acts together.
And all I am saying is that Blu-ray DOES have their act together, compared to what to they originally claimed they would accomplish with this format.
It was never introduced as a DVD movie replacement... it was introduced as a "blue laser" technology with massive storage capacity that would EVENTUALLY provide the most advanced package of benefits.
BUYER BEWARE: This is a two-year development roll-out, NOT just a new technology for watching HD movies!
