    Wonder if this is going to be vaporware or if it will actually come to fruition. Perhaps as storage-media only? Otherwise that should be enough room to have lossless video! [​IMG]

    Lossless video? You'll probably need another order magnitude increase for that. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Still... pretty cool though I doubt it'll ever be used much, if at all, for movies -- long running TV shows maybe...

    I'm guessing bandwidth would be a bigger problem for lossless video.

    So, we believe this, but not 51GB HD-DVDs? [​IMG]

    Let's not go completely crazy, now! Some things will always be vaporware! [​IMG]

    (I stopped waiting for DK4 in 1998 when Half Life came out.)

    I suppose the difference in credibility and thus believability is due to the fact that the Blu-Ray group has no reason to lie now, having already won the HD format war. While with HD-DVD it was important for them to try and play down the 50GB advantage that Blu-Ray had over it.

    I read from pcmag that curantly blu-ray is unable to do double layers. so the 50 gig disk is hype at this point & so is the 400 gig & what i hear is 1 terabyte by 2010. HD-DVD on the other hand could easily do a triple layer holding 45 gigs. So Why again did blu win?

    I'm betting on HD-downloads.

    [​IMG] Huh?! Studios have been using 50G dual layer discs for some time now. Something is not computing here. How old was that magazine?

    To each their own I suppose. Although I'd suggest you make yourself a little better informed before making your HT decisions.
