So the BR set for this is 180 and the DVD set is 92. Can anyone tell me if it's worth paying twice the price for the Blu-Rays. Mainly, is there any difference between the two, episode- or feature-wise? Or it simply twice the price because of the higher quality format.
if you want the truth here it is............you are being brainwashed by corp.america that blu ray is better than dvd............if you already have the tz series and you have an upconverted dvd player,how much better can they get this to look in br........people double, triple dip,quadruple dip,etc. for these old shows.i dont understand why...how much better are they going to look? i admit i double dipped for TZ on new years on amazon deal of day AT A GREAT PRICE ($74.99) but that was more for space reasons, sold my old set for a loss.........NEVER AGAIN. once i buy a dvd thats it,after all how many times am i gonna watch it,especially tv series which can take weeks or months to watch and believe me i have shows i havent even sniffed at yet.
Thanks for the input. I don't have either set yet, mainly I was just curious if it'd be better to pay for the DVD's since they are so much cheaper. Is the Blu-Ray set pretty much the same as the DVD set as far as features? If everything is the same I would rather just go with the cheaper DVD set.
I personally think its worth the extra cash for BR. I've only rented one of the discs but I ordered the set today. The difference is pretty substantial on a nice TV. Blu Ray won't be replaced by another physical media for at least a decade, and it looks amazing. The DVDs are great but you will absolutely see a difference between the two, audio and picture wise.
The added detail on the BR discs combined with the remastering makes it worthwhile. You can see all the glorious detail present in the 35mm film negative. The added commentary tracks are also a nice bonus.
