Got the hd dvd player with my xbox 360 set it up on saturday, purchased latest harry potter dvd (amazing film anyway)

all i can say is

got a 50" panasonic plasma and a jamo surround sound system.

colours are so strong and vivid, the detail is nuts

recommend geting the player for the 360 comes with a wicked remote which u can use with normal dvds in the xbox too!

got 5free hd dvds coming as well. Serenity. Children of men, world trade centre, i forgot the otheq 2. Got them as a free promo!

didnt think blu-ray was much different to standard dvd to be honest, but my opinion is that it was in a ps3 and ps3's are crap

Not seen a bluray yet. Its supposed to be better? But i got a good deal with my hd dvd playes my dad wants a ps3 so will get that nxt year.

re price, dvds were the same if not more when they were released 8years ago! I worked in a music/dvd shop and average dvd was 20 some i.e titanic were as much as 27 so hd/blu ray not that bad really

no region coding on hd-dvd james

however, if you buy a combo disc, the standard dvd side will be region coded so you will need a multiregion dvd player to watch that side

get transformers, its amazing in hd.
even my missus noticed the difference and she thought hd was just a gimmick until she watched transformers and was amazed by the difference in quality

Blue-Ray and HD-DVD are the same quality and the PS3 is more capable than most standalone Blu-Ray players.

Children of men is a good film, WTC is absolutely shocking; I was so close to just giving up watching it half way through
Welcome to the world of HD though

I think the prices will come down over time. I can't really justify paying 23 for a DVD but that's just me.

Quality is much greater than DVD but all paid at a price.
