Re: Is It Worth It???
In a word, yes.
I have connected Blu-Ray players to standard def TV's and the picture is better than DVD because I see less macro-blocking noise. I also feel that the color saturation is much better.
On any HDTV, regardless of input resolution the difference is substantial.
Finally, with prices of HD-DVD below $300 and Blu-Ray below $500 ($600 if you buy the Panasonic with 5 free discs) it is now at a price that makes it worth buying so that you can see what your HDTV can really do.
