Really? I thought this war had already been fought? Microsoft lost.
But seriously, in reality, there was no real difference between the two as far as audio and visual quality are concerned. It all boiled down to who pitched their product better and to whom they pitched it to.

It does't really make any difference as HD-DVD has been discontinued, no new movies, no new players. It's the current generations betamax.

Yeah but Bluray is a total disaster.

They change the encryption keys and algos so often that I have to perform a full player update EVERY time I buy a new movie (Every 2-3 months or so). That takes approx 30 minutes. And this last time on Easter eve? 2.5 hours and multiple updates some direct and others from website through DVD-R later the movie "Hop" /still/ wouldn't play. $30 for a plastic Frisbee.

Blueray /literally/ makes kids cry! It punishes people that buy the disks while the pirates get everything they want for free anyway. I am totally done with Blueray and I hope it rots in hell!

Currently a 6 month old LG 3d stand alone player. But same issues with an older player as well.

Google "Can't play bluray disk in my player", the horror stories are rampant. Seriously a full class action lawsuit needs to be brought against all blueray player manufacturers, Sony and the publishers for this total disaster of a "product".

Wow, and I was annoyed about a few movies that when I played them recently, had a little stutter. Arcsoft TMT 5 has served me very well.

Yes, but what happens is, opps, key change, entire line of new movies comes out, fail to play in player till update, 3 months later. ooops, entire new encryption routine is instituted and all new movies use it (as they are released). All old players need major upgrade or they simply will never work again. Then depending on manufacturer, upgrade may not be available for weeks or months after movies are released.

It's SO BAD that some disks actually come with a disclaimer that "This disk may play properly on your player"... WTF? How do they get away with that? Over the last year especially it's been a real crapshoot and has just been getting worse.

Time to bail...
