5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray version has extra content, December 5, 2007
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
For those of you with both high-def formats, you should be aware that the Blu-ray version not only has over twice as much bonus content, but it's in full 1080p video. The HD DVD version bonus content is only in 480p (DVD quality). The Blu-ray version also has over a dozen foreign language tracks, while the HD DVD version only has three.

Checkout http://www.highdefdigest.com/ for a good review of both formats. I have both a blu ray player and an hd dvd player. For me personally, none of the "bonus" material matters much, whether it is 1080p or 480i, I won't watch it. Now if the deleted scenes had been stitched back into the movie...that would be different. I imagine when they re-re-release the full 7 movie set we'll get that. :-) Additionally, the interactive hd dvd content, while very cool, is not something I'll use either (and my kids are too young to watch the movies right now). Since both versions have the same video encode, it really comes down to audio for me. Of course most people will tell you, that the average person can't tell a difference between uncompressed pcm and dolby truehd. I know I can't on my current equipment.

Actually, uncompressed PCM and Dolby TrueHD should result in IDENTICAL sound quality. That's because Dolby TrueHD is a lossless compression format that decodes into a PCM stream identical to the original, uncompressed PCM stream. Any differences you hear will be due to differences in your hardware setup (e.g. the particular decoders in your HD DVD vs. Blu-ray player), not what's on disc.
