this is from wiki

Blu-ray Disc (also known as Blu-ray or BD) is an optical disc storage medium designed by Sony to supersede the standard DVD format. Its main uses are high-definition video and data storage with 50GB per disc. The disc has the same physical dimensions as standard DVDs and CDs.

The name Blu-ray Disc is derived from the blue laser (violet-colored) used to read and write to this type of disc. In part because of the shorter wavelength (405 nanometres), substantially more data (almost 6 times more) can be stored on a Blu-ray Disc than on a standard DVD, which uses a red (650 nm) laser.

Yes much then!If you have a TV that can resolve 1080p, the picture … Yes much then!If you have a TV that can resolve 1080p, the picture difference is truly astounding. If you only have an HD-ready TV that can resolve 720p (which will probably then facilitate upscaling to 1080i) then the difference is far less pronounced.

the only difference is the blu ray picture is a lot clearer and sharper but blu ray disc are so exspensive so you are better off just bying a normal dvd
