There is not any distinct difference, while I still often choose Blue Ray ones.

Hello James,

can you specify more how the above wording isn't true. If you have more ideas please share in detail, so that I can understand.

The quality of a blu ray depends more on the effort undertaken in the transfer from the film.
You can't beat a good blu ray transfer IMO eg. Casino Royale.
The frustration of key/security changes could kill the industry for the people who stand the most to gain - dumb marketing.

It doesn't matter what you choose to watch DVD's on, Blu-Ray and HD DVD do the exact same thing, but Blu-Ray people say that the scenes in the movie are almost exactly like the movie when it was in the cinema.

What are you trying to say? It is hard to decipher exactly what you are trying to convey.

The difference between HD DVD and Blu-Ray is that HD is supported by companies like Microsoft and Intel. HD DVD's hold about 15GB, and longer movies have a greater chance of being broken up into two disks. Blu-ray is supported by companies like Sony and Samsung. Blu-ray disks hold about 30GB and almost always have extra scenes since they hold so much information.

So which one you will choose now? It is for all who have their own choice. After this reply how will get turn from their answers.
Please reply.

They are both incorrect. What is this for?

Actually HD DVD's held 15GB per layer, and there were dual layer disks (just like DVD's). So, HD DVD could hold around 30GB on a single physical disk. BR can hold 25GB per layer, and 50GB on a second layer. I'm unsure of how many extras have been included on BR versus HD-DVD, since I never invested in the HD-DVD technology.

I like BluRay. It is a better but more expensive product.
