Monahan (42) Why? There will be something better in the next year or two.

otoh (54) Only by default, by virtue of having a PS3. I do now buy (non-porn) Blu Rays when they are not too expensive, and rent Blu Rays when available. But to be honest, I don't find it a big deal; you notice the difference if you specifically look for it, but it has little or no impact on my enjoyment of a film.

RustyJ (145) Yes I do. It's a huge difference if you use FullHD TV or projector too. Sadly many of porn blurays are only 720p for no apparent reason.

manholelover (24) No I don't. With everything you need downloadable these days I don't see the point.

lk2fireone (194) What Monahan says makes sense. There will be a new technology coming out soon that will be the next "must have" that will replace BluRay. Anyone remember the floppy disk, or VHS or eight track or ...

pat362 (371) I own 2 and I didn't buy any of them. The first one was offered free of charge when I bought my 40" LCD TV. The other is because I own a PS3.

I agree that there will someday be somrthing better than Blue-ray but I don't expect to see that in the next 2 years. At best they might come out with a better Blue-ray player but that's all.

DVD players were invented in 1994 are still being sold today. Blue-ray were invented in 2000 but the official release was in 2006.

Drooler (220) Can anyone say "Betamax?" "DAT?" Sony seems to have this unfortunate tendency to do the R&D to create superior technologies that don't seem to interest people nearly as much as they'd hoped.

But it's normal for the consumer to avoid buying things that are better, but otherwise problematic. Blu Ray to me seems to be just one more format with lots of expense and the potential for obsolescence soon enough. It's better, yes, but not good enough to replace what I've already plunked my dough down for.

No, not really. All of those items had long lives and there is no reason to suspect that Bluray will not either. I am sure down the road something will come along, I suspect that will be streaming (Netflix). For this to take over there needs to be an infrastructure change for most people to be able to have multiple megabit connections. Too many people have lower level connections.

Bluray was never a "must have" technology like DVD was. It was meant to be the next step, not a radical change. VHS to DVD was the revolutionary change that caused people to replace their movie collections. 99% of people do not buy movies on Bluray that they have on DVD already, the quality difference does not warrant paying for that. They want people to buy their new movies on Bluray and that is reasonable.

Bluray does offer a better picture and is worth paying a little extra for. Bluray itself will be surpassed at somepoint, certainly not in the next few years, but the idea of high definition will not. Bluray will be around for a while.

Now if you went apeshit and bought a new 3D TV I would say you wasted your money, at least for the 3D part. That is already slowing down, again. 3D sounds cool, but until it is actually three dimensional it will not5 stick. The 3D on a 2D screen simply is not going to work.

Yes new technology comes along, but you might as well enjoy it once it becomes affordable.

slutty (111) Like pat362 I got one free with a TV, and I think it is significantly better than DVD although I doubt I would have gotten one if it hadn't been free, but the expense is usually not significantly different (well Redbox is like 50% more, but that still isn't exactly expensive).

While Sony certainly fucked up the betamax thing trying to keep it a proprietary technology, they didn't do that here, and they developed Blu Ray with a bunch of heavy hitters in technology as I understand it.

I think its worth having if you have a nice, large TV, and I doubt it'll go anywhere anytime soon or at a minimum whatever comes next will be backwards compatable.

Sony learned it's lesson when it comes to video formats. Whether you watch it or don't. Make sure your format is available for porn.
The only reason Betamax never took off was because VHS welcomed porn with open arms. It took far too long for Betamax to realise that porn was a goldmine for the video tape industry.

As you know that hasn't happened with any other video technology including Blue-ray. That's part of the reason why I don't expect to see anything new for a long time to come. Blue-ray is just starting to become popular because players are now becoming affordable. I don't think it would be wise for any company to release any new piece of technology with a world recession still going strong and not looking like it's getting better.

dalars (1) With the quality that I can download, only the collectors will buy/use bluray.

Even pirate downloads are HD now, it's crazy!
