5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie! Don't buy the blu-ray/dvd combo, September 14, 2010
This review is from: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (Special Blu-ray/DVD Single-Disc Edition) (Blu-ray)
This as a great movie. Follows the book great. I have the movie 5 stars.
DO NOT BUY the blu-ray/dvd single disc combo. The quality isn't as good because the blu-ray is on one side of the disc and the dvd is on the other side. Summit is just trying to cut corners and save money. I hope they release a real blu-ray of this movie.

I'm wondering how this person knows it's not good quality. Is this based on past purchase(s) of a Blu-ray/DVD combo on one disc? How does this person know already that this particular combo is not of good quality on the Blu-ray side?

And you know this how? The bluray releases Dec. 4. Also, I don't think they can put a bluray and dvd on the same disc. The technology is different.

I'm not the author BUT under description it says
"number of disc: 1" and on the title it says "SINGLE DISC".

so there you go. i agree with the author. the quality is going to be horrible if one side is blu-ray and the other is dvd. i mean is THAT POSSIBLE?!

The same thing was done with the recent release of "Letters to Juliet". I honestly can't say that I've watched one of these double-sided discs, and therefore I don't know what the quality is like. However, I have to say that if the DVD and Blu-ray can be achieved on the same disc, then what was the point of differentiating the two technologies in the first place? Why do people bother to upgrade to Blu-ray if combo releases like this are just going to become the norm? They say it's an attempt to cut corners and save money, but they're already releasing the DVD by itself, so what's the point in doing this, except to cheat the people who have invested in Blu-ray? I switched over to Blu-ray because I want the best picture/sound quality possible, and I don't want to be cheated.

Wish I had known this before I purchased the Blu-ray/DVD combo. My blu-ray side won't play; I get "Unknown" error from my player. But the DVD side plays and I thought it was excellent. Definitely not worth the price I paid since I can go to Wal-Mart and buy the DVD for half the cost I paid. But I love the movie and really enjoyed watching it.
