Blu-ray Sucks! Amazon keeps pushing a format that I hate and will never buy.

Josh - You're the first to respond, and I think you nailed it on the head. Someone needs to get out their calipers and measure disc thickness. Maybe since BD has 6x the information he thought it would weigh more. ;-)

I mentioned Olivia Munn was overrated (IMO) in an earlier post. I kind of like Erica Durance, but I'm sure there will be those of you who feel the same as I do about Olivia ;)

Susan - LOL - It was so hard to see VHS trump the superior Betamax! The serenity prayer comes to mind...

For those of you who don't think this talk of Smallville adds to the discussion, you are wrong (We just haven't got to that point yet). Smallville has been released on blu-ray for season 6,7,8, and 9 coming out in September. I will say they are not quite the greatest picture on blu-ray, they are better than the DVDs (so now it adds to the discussion). We also get to see Erica Durance in HD ;)

Torgon,

The OP did not add to the discussion, so anywhere we go is up from there. I have never been a Smallville viewer, but you all have me intrigued. I did enjoy Kristen Kreuk's spin on Chuck, but don't know anything about Erica. I do know having to choose between Yvonne Strahovski and Kristen Kreuk or Rachel Bilson from the first season of Chuck would be a dilemma I would sign up for. Erica just looks like the typical hot young actress in her photos on imdb, I will have to actually watch the show to see how much more than that she is.

The character's name was Alicia Baker played by Sarah Carter. Is that what you were looking for? She was also in DOA based on the Xbox/Xbox 360 games, lol.
@C. Barbus,
I think Smallville has really gotten better in the last couple of seasons. They have already renewed for season 10. It's changed a lot from it's first four or five seasons, where it was about the 'freak of the week'. Now the storylines include some notable Superman villians.

Imdb says Sarah was in one season 3 show and two season 4 shows. I recognize her from an episode of White Collar and as an aspiring forensic investigator in a handful of CSI:NY episodes this year. She was after the lead forensic guys job, at least that is what he thought. Understand why she is memorable.

Why is this guy so concerned about disc size? If we all whip out our discs you'll be impressed by mine. My format choice is laser disc.

prob still uses beta max too, tho that was the superior format back in the day and listens to 8 track still., some people just don't like newer tech.

I've replaced 90% of my DVD collection (about 500) with Blu Ray and I can say with the utmost certainty that Blu Ray is better. The picture is better, even on the worst transfers, the sound is always better, the extras are better, and even the menu system is better. Finally, the discs themselves are made from a harder material and do not scratch like DVDs. Yes, I have a 5K Anthem broadcast quality scaler. In fact, the better your equipment, the more difference you will notice.

Anyone who does not believe that Blu Ray will not be the standard for the next 20 years is fooling themselves. DVDs had a great run but the end is coming, and for good reason.

Thanks Leon, for the update! Blu-ray is up to 25% of the market?! Cool. It was only [edit] 15% June 2010. At this rate, and after the Black Friday and Christmas sales, it will probably accelerate it's market share even more! Most people I know are not buying blu-rays simply because their DVD player hasn't died yet. Now that blu-ray prices are almost the same (and sometimes cheaper) than their DVD release, and companies like Disney are including the DVD with all of their BD titles, market share is growing faster and faster! I love Blu. I'l pop in a DVD at home, and frequently the fuzzy picture or flatter sound are distracting. Love that I can replace my older DVD's with a used BD for $5-10 now.

As for 5D DVD - Can you find an article that has been published in the last year? This made a big noise in 2009, but no word yet. Besides, 5D is supposed to be DVD compatible, which means it will play in a BD player too (At least 1-2 layers). I'm sure if 5D ever does see the light of day in 15 years or so (yeah, in 2009 they said 5-10 years, but there hasn't been any noise for 2 years), the player will also play blu-rays, which will be even more seated in the market by the time this pipe dream sees daylight in the US.

Long story short; blu-ray is here to stay for at least another 5-15 years. Sit on the fence or get off it. There's always a better widget on the way!

I think you were looking at april of 2009 there ivan cause as of april of 2011 blu ray was at 20 percent not 8 and thats still pretty sad. Sounds like you need a better place to get your info and a better hdmi cable.
