The Blu-Ray will not be anywhere near twice as good quality yet it is a hot deal to pay twice the price for the Blu-Ray??!?!?

I don't remember tape cassettes being twice the price of vinyl LPs despite the fact that tapes were impervious to scratches and with dolby much better sound quality!

Why then are we as modern comsumers prepared to pay twice the price for what is essentially a small improvement?

I would vote it cold but as this is the cheapest price for this BDR that I can see then i will not vote at all. Still paying over the odds if you but it though.

Blu-rays overpricing will see it go the same way as Laserdisc!

Err, ok, possibly they will, but this film, right now, is not cheaper anywhere. All LCD TVs will be under £500 one day so should we stop posting those deals as well as there's loads on the site? How about SD Cards? :thinking:

And tapes never sounded better than vinyl - EVER!

£4.99 for DVD? I got the HD- DVD for £2.99! Not Blu-Ray I know, but it's good quality none the less, even if it is a dead format.

Yes, because its good to get the heads up when they do drop in price. Its kind of the point of the site. You wouldn't get any deals posted if you work on the assumption that everybody knows everything already . . . . .

Great film though!! :thumbsup:

Hey, why let facts get in the way of an inflammatory statement! :roll:

For the record(!) as you point out vinyl is an order of magnitude better sound quality wise than tape. Actually though, it's a good analogy in that the difference in sound quality is related to the quality of the equipment you play it on.....just like Blu Ray. The increased quality is more apparent the better the kit, i.e. the TV, you play it on.

Not really.

You generally buy one TV every five years, maybe 2 for a couple of rooms.

The quantities and prices are entirely different so the underlying issue is entirely different.

If I upscale a top quality DVD then it is comparible to a low quality transfer Blu-Ray.

Why then would one pay twice for a Blu-Ray what one can get the DVD for?

There is an obvious quality improvement of the Samsung over the Bush which is why one would be willing to pay the extra money. Hence why I bought a couple of HD Sammys (32" and 19").

I also own a PS3 btw and have a couple of BRDs. One of which I got for free. That will be all I will be buying until the prices become more realistic...

Read the reviews for the Oceans 13 Blu-Ray:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Oceans-Thirt...662920&sr=1-12

Well worth 3 times the price of the DVD which is probably a better transfer quality! Couldn't be any worse!

I am no troll.

I am just of the opinion that Blu-Rays are overpriced for the quality improvement that you gain from 'some' of the transfers.

My audio analogy was a poor one. Certainly tapes probably did cost more than LPs when tapes were first released.

you have posted that oceans 13 stuff in at least two threads ive seen, kinds trollish.

i have voted hot, but shall not buy as i already have the dvd and hd-dvd versions. but the fact is that blurays are supposed to have 5 x better picture, so double the price is good. plus blurays are expensive so under a tenner is a good deal - if you dont think it is then why post in here???

and i have oceans 13 on hd-dvd - anything wrong with that version???

btw your links dont even work - you cant link like that, it has half of the info missing.

tomatos tomatoes, vinyl is collectable for more reasons like it was around when music was massive and people like nostalgia, plus dj's use them to mix.

How many vinyls and tapes do yo think actually get used these days?

DVD and Blu Ray are currently both formalts in use, in a few years blu ray will beat DVD no doubt but both are current formats plus dvd players are useful as they are generally now small and cheap and not bulky and heavy like video recorders.

Much as I agree with the principal of what you say, it's apparent from the never-ending deluge of pointless DVD posts that no-one will pay the least bit of attention to you. (Enchanted for a fiver being the most recent and blatant waste of a front page deal slot - like it hasn't been that price for ages!).

Ho-hum...

I think playing the numbers game between formats is getting into pretty shaky territory (especially with the whole HD-DVD thing coming into it for some films) For a start, how does one measure the quality? Resolution would seem a perfectly reasonable way of doing so, but with Blu Ray having more than four times that of DVD, surely anything up to £20 could be argued to represent good value?

Also, when V for Vendetta was first released it would have been more than a tenner on DVD from many retailers. Give it more time and no doubt the Blu Ray will drop in price too.

sigh, when will people stop denying progress?

maybe we should go back to flicking bits of paper with a stick man, that is cheaper than dvd?

if you want to watch something in its best form then you have to pay for the pleasure.

i can download any film i want, watch it upscaled, yet i have over 100 bluray films

the reason is, i love watching films in their best form.

i wont pay the silly 'retail' price for these films, but i remember when vhs films were £50 each, like all advanced technologies, you pay more to start with and then as it becomes the industry standard, the price falls to a reasonable price

It occurred to me after my earlier post that when DVD was in it's early days it was hard to get anything cheaper than £18 per film. I think the resolution ratio from VHS to DVD was roughly similar, but people still lapped it up (I know there were other benefits as well, but still).

Trollish?

That is a new one on me mate.

A troll is a troll. I am making a valid point about a subject that I believe in by backing up my point with an example. That does not make me a troll.

The Oceans 13 example backs up my point so well that I decided to use it on 2 seperate threads to make the same point.

Why would I use a different example?

Oh, maybe to avoid being labelled "trollish"?

I will from now on live in fear of being picked up on your potential trollometer. You are clearly the forum specialist in these matters...

P.S.

For those who missed it. My point is that many Blu-Ray transfers offer no major quality improvement over upscaled DVD. So why pay a premium purely to have the movie on Blu-Ray? Simple really.

Don't get me wrong.

Some of the Blu-Ray transfers are amazing.

The Pirates of the Carribean films are fantastic for example. The new Godfather trilogy also looks amazing. Well worth the money.

I am just pointing out the fact that you are essentially paying a premium to own the film on Blu-Ray over DVD on a few transfers. No really noticeable quality difference.

It is the same as when I bought the DVD of Quadrophenia. I paid about 3 times as much as I could of got it on VHS for. It was the VHS on a DVD... Utter pish.

Anyway I think I have bored enoiugh people with this.

I am off to sign up to a "Blu-Ray is overpriced" forum so that I can avoid such issues...
