I wondered about this myself, although at this price its as cheap as a dvd anyway practically. I did a bit of reading and found some interesting information as follows (this is on various surces including blu-ray.com forums) --

"The myth: old movies won't look good in high-def. Well, show them the Blu-ray of John Ford's 'The Searchers'--a movie made in 1956, and they'll stop that rant altogether.
Also, some folks state the reason that new movies look better than older ones is because of the fact that old movies were shot on film and new movies are shot with HD cameras. Rubbish again. Take for example some recent major Hollywood stuff like 'Live Free Or Die Hard'--shot on 35mm. The new 'Indiana Jones' movie was shot using 35mm too.

Besides, film has more resolution than current HDM (Blu-ray, HD-DVD) offers--generally measured at 4k (more than twice the resolution of 1080p), there's more information in the negative which is MORE than twice the resolution of current 1080p HD discs. So old movies are naturally shot in 'HD'--ULTRA HD--and there's no reason why they can't look good on Blu-ray, unless they botch up the transfer.
The truth is, more than 90% of movies are still shot using ol' photo chemical film--not HD cameras, and most of them look superb in HD. So don't hesitate to buy older titles on Blu-ray, in fact it must be a priority because you'll see more detail than you ever did in an older film than you did watching the standard DVD.

A perfect example is 'Blade Runner'--it's oozing with clarity and detail, specially the all new 'Final Cut'; scanned at 4k (enough to gather all information present in the original elements) and digitally cleaned up with care it stands out as one of the best older titles available in High-def.

I think a key issue for anybody considering an upgrade are the wealth of extras this set offers. The Amazon customer reviews are well worth a read. :thumbsup:
