Can't find this cheaper elsewhere online so could be a bargain for an excellent second world war series!


Based on the bestseller by Stephen E. Ambrose, Band of Brothers tells the story of Easy Company, 506th Regiment
of the 101st Airborne Division, U.S. Army, Drawn from interviews with Easy Company, as well as soldiers' journals
and letters, Band Of Brothers chronicles the experiences of these parachuting into France early on D-Day
morning, fighting in the Battle of the Bulge and capturing Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchtesgaden. They were also
a unit that suffered 150 percent casualties, and whose lives became legend

yes it does make it more realistic as the quality is much better, when you have experienced hd material - no dvd is not good enough.

You been hiding under a rock or something? :)

Blu ray looks and sounds 10x better than DVD.

and DVD sounds and look 10 better than VHS.
SRD sounds and look 10 better than Blue Ray.

Yo,I wanna be happier to,let me get them!!

The acting and story are better on blu-ray ;)
Seriously the mass consumer with average size TVs and audio equipment arn't impressed, Blu-ray only has 3% of the market when Sony wanted 50% by the end of this year (remeber they invested heavily to make 50% happen, so we are going to pay)

I got mine from play.com

may pre-order here though...

right, watching this on blu-ray at my mates then watching it at home on dvd playing through a playstation3 which does upscale dvds to a point. And to be honest little difference, im not going to say no difference. but to pay an extra £20 for blu ray material is a joke but this boxset is worth £30 anyway because it's a truely amazing series. But i won't being paying an extra £20 for a name, so for that reason i wont be voting.

saying that though i got planet earth on blu-ray from woolworths but slgiht difference is that i had never seen it and didnt previous own the dvd version, so im really stuck in the middle on this one.

sorry how can you have watched it when its not out yet!!!! apologies if ive missed something but thought it was not due for release until 10/11...

on another note, goto say when i watch fantastic 4 silver surfer on my PS3 upscaled i was blown away,,,,,, but i think one of the problems is dvds with the right upscaler are at thier best, but BLU like HDDVDs are a bit hit and miss and you need to have the settings set right to start with, so will agree abit with you ,, however ill not be cancelling my pre order,,,:thumbsup:

Hmmm, I'm in 2 minds.

Heat added cos it's the cheapest yet but do I want to shell out £32 on a TV series?

As for the debate?

Well I have HD DVD & Blu-ray - LG BH200, multi-region (Blu-ray & DVD) & dual format, the only way to go in my view.

The one part many high def enthusiasts won't often admit is that a lot of high def really isn't all that.

It seems like the stuff that is rated is the ultra-smooth 'de-grained' stuff, which does not strike me as especially great either, it makes everything look odd, too smooth
(which is why the PS3 gamers rate the stuff aimed at them as amazing).

Play are doing it with art cards though. My pre-order was at £29.99 (+ Quidco), so it will have to take an almighty price cut elsewhere for me to even consider cancelling it. ;-)

You can see some comparisons between the HDDVD version and the DVD version here;

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=901348&highlight=Brothers

And i would think the Bluray version could possibly be improved further on that. Clearly a massive difference (plus the audio track will be much better)

I'm not saying there is no difference, of course not.

I am saying that on the type of HD TV most of us have (32" - 50" and probably to 720p resolution) the differences will not be startling.

A lot of high def can leave you feeling decidedly underwhelmed
("is that it.....and you paid how much to get that"!? being a common comment) .

I wouldn't call it 'massive'.....maybe it looks better on a 60"+ set or a high quality projector
(but even then I've seen people with projectors saying upscaled DVD @ 100" is very good & not the awful horror some Blu-ray fans want to make it out to be).

My own bet would be they will be using the exact same transfer as the HD DVD one (why spend on it twice), so the image is probably exactly the same one.

Besides, we've had all that malarky before.
When Paramount originally released on both high def formats they tailored their Blu-ray releases to reflect the slightly higher bitrates Blu-ray allowed.
The net result was that they looked the same.

You might see a better audio track, but that really only benefits the few with a high quality receiver & high quality speaker set.

i put a similar offer on the table yest n was voted cold. it worked out cheaper than this with quidco, so why was it cold, seems a bit silly really. first post aswell u lot are a tad harsh on first timers i think:roll:

People banging on about upscaling DVDs being as good as HDDVD or BR are kidding themselves.

I deliver HD TV show masters all around the world for a living. I do not know of one single HD client that accepts up-converted from SD to HD shows - not one. And we are talking up-converted to HDCAM, SR etc. on professional equipment such as the Alchemist Platinum standards converter, not your under the telly HDMI DVD player. So if my TV clients don't think it's as good done professionally, it ain't.

What's the saying? "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear" (although you could probably mock it up to look silk purse-ish from a distance when squinting.)

I suggest you click here

i have upscaled a dvd & compared it to the same movie in blu ray format on my ps3. If you cant see a big difference there is something wrong with your eyes or your telly. I agree that blu ray is a bit of a rip tho, thats why i use Lovefilm to hire them rather than buy.
