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

You're kidding right? BD are the most durable discs out there. They're the only ones that are virtually scratch-proof (unless you just set out with the mission to deliberately scratch them). BD are more durable than DVDs that's for sure. Sounds like somebody is a bitter HD-DVD adopter that got burned in the long run. Let it go, dude. It's not coming back.

WOW!!! What the hell are you rambling about? This is one of the most incoherent rants I've ever read on these forums. You have absolutely no clue what the hell you are talking about.

Sometimes opinions are best kept to yourself. I'm sure you'll eventually reply with another ridiculous post after reading this. that's okay, you go ahead and pop a blood vessel and the rest of us will continue to enjoy a format that is superior to standard DVD.

Todd P. James, how's your HD DVD player owners unite website going? And the discs being flimsy is your perception because you bet on the wrong format. Blu Ray discs are the same size, shape, and thickness as CDs, DVDs, and your beloved deceased HD DVDs.

You claim that DVDs and HD DVDs are more durable. Where is your evidence? That is just you making stuff up. And friction is two solids rubbing against one another. A solid material spinning against the air doesn't create friction and heat. shows how much you know.

How do you know it is a piece of junk technology if you haven't tried it? All of your gripes about Blu Ray in the past were about things that no longer apply like the price of players and the addition of new profiles. You say the studio chose for you the format. But the fact is that the two formats were not equal. I could not get movies from Paramount, Universal, The Weinstein Co., and certain Warner Bros. Titles on Blu Ray. And I could not watch Fox, Columbia, Disney, and Tri-Star titles on HD DVD.

Now that there is one format, I am granted choice. Choice of any movie from any studio. You never addressed the advantage of not having to chose a studio with a format. Personally I have no love for blu ray over HD DVD. I didn't buy until the format war was over. I love having choice - not of format, but of content. It's all about content.

guy you have no idea what you're talking about, my daughter watches nightmare before christmas every night before bed...for 6+ months and that movie still plays and looks like it's brand new. you're just a hater dude, i am a proud owner of over 150+ Blu rays and I already have 25+ on pre-order. invest in a playstation three, it's more than just a gaming system, pfft, i don't even play video games and it's the coolest thing I own, netflix/blu ray/browser/radio/playstation home/playstation store...blu ray is pushed because of Ps3, because ps3's are #1 blu ray players...

stop being a hater and just enjoy the product

That is wrong. A sloid material and air create friction. You can look it up on wikipedia. Nevertheless Todd P. James has no idea what he is talking about.

C. Heublein,
>> A [solid] material and air create friction. <<
Perhaps, but the air flow would also carry away the generated heat, so it's probably a wash. I expect the heat from the electronics is more significant.

But yeah, OP sounds like a troll.

So the space shuttle coming in at (whatever speed it comes in) X speed doesn't create friction with air???

And yes...a disc spinning creates heat with the air...enough to warp a disc, probably not.

I don't know what you're smoking, but as for me, you can have my blu ray player when you pry my cold dead fingers off the play button. I have bought my last DVD.

Lots of older movies look gorgeous on blu-ray. Check out 2001, Blade Runner, James Bond Classics, Casablanca, Wizard of Oz for some great examples. Even grainy movies though they may not be as nice looking do still have more detail beyond the grain than DVD. At bare minimum even if a film didn't have more detail it looks natural, not like it had detail digitally removed like DVD's do. And it's not just about resolution, HD also had much more vibrant and more accurate colors.

And Blu-ray has lossless audio.

This guy (HDDVDFAN07 aka Todd James) started a website two years ago to bring back the HD DVD format. Everyone on his own site told him it was OVER but he lives in an alternate reality and apparently would rather sulk until he dies instead of enjoying the next generation of HD movies. What a loser.

He probably misses Beta too.

Apparently you missed "the joke" of the post. It was in reference to the 'tard who said "solid objects and air" don't create friction.

At the end of my post...I even said "enough to warp a disc? I doubt it".

Go play with your legos EDM.

Cause my grandson was playing with them within earshot. I got "lucky" and missed the wars/conflicts by being the "wrong age" at the right times. Besides a permanently broken arch bone kept them from "asking".

And yes, the laser warms the disc...but "laser warmth" is not "air/solid friction"...

but neither warmth, created either way, creates any issues. The Discs have, what, a 20 year life expectancy??? I seem to remember somewhere standard dvd has a 20 year shelf life...anybody know the particulars on that one?
