If you watch a lot of movies then I'd definitely go for one. It depends on what you're watching but the difference in quality on a lot of the Sony / Disney titles for example is huge.

But don't go for the one from HMV - that package is £20 cheaper at Blockbuster :thumbsup:

Wow, thanks, just saved me £20 if i'm tempted

Also can you play normal dvds on a blu ray player?

yep you sure can!!!!!

bluray is very good, especially if you have a stinkingly good telly.

make sure you dont skimp on the cables though, you need good hdmi leads, be warned they can be veeeeery pricey!!!

What a load of rubbish, all HDMI leads arethe same, ignore this fool.


Anyway, I don't think blu ray is worth it, imo not a noticable difference from a good upscaling dvd player.

don't need to spend too much for a good HDMI cable, I wouldn't buy the 50p stuff in Tesco, but you can get a decent one under £10.00

for OP Blu-Ray defo much better than DVD, huge difference, I use the very first version of the Japanese PS3 to play my DVD's, abt 5yrs old now and that is still massively better any DVD now, obviously you need a good TV to go with it too :thumbsup:

let the blu ray vs DVD war commence...

I love blu rays, but I watch a lot of films,

in some films the difference is not that much but in others its huge, make sure you read reviews on the blu rays your thinking of purchasing.

:thumbsup:

Sure if you pause it and compare you can see a difference, but with a good upscaling player and a blu ray whilst watching them live you really can't tell.


depends on the film mate..

some transfers are better than others.

Irrespective of the transfer the blu ray version of any film will be superior to the dvd equivalent.

imo dont bother,theirs a reason Blu-Ray hasnt caught on, the picture improvement isn't worth the expense unless your a massive movie fan with a big telly:-D

I have both a blue-ray player and an upscaler, happy to watch movies on both, upscaling is much better than standard DVD on a good telly, and you're hard pushed most of the time to tell the difference.

seriously dude, you need to understand to get best out of a blu-ray movie you need to firstly watch with your eyes open and ideally it would work best to use a HD TV :whistling:

Maybe you should wait to buy a ps3 if you like video games at all.

Still unsure about venturing into BR.

I've often considered buying a player but came to the realisation that my viewing habits have changed. I rarely use my DVD player anymore as I prefer content on demand. It would be nice to have some of my favourite films in 1080p but I have a reluctance to replace/upgrade my existing library.

Hmm...

I believe I get the top titles from Lovefilm quicker because I order them in Blu Ray..I may of course be wrong.
