This is not a discussion of what a person can or cannot afford. I really don't care if someone shares internet service with 4 other people. It's a discussion of whether blu-ray discs are worth the extra money. I say no, since there are better formats coming out.
There are always better things on the horizon, the question is will they become mainstream and have your favourite films released.
We have 4K on the horizon, i look forward to it but i certainly won't be rushing into it straight away, for one i cannot currently afford the display, it needs to be large and preferably a projector but if it's a television then really i feel 80 inch minimum to take advantage of 4K, for two there will be some films which are not worth upgrading over the blu ray edition as some movies don't have that much resolution for various reasons and for three i feel you need at least 6K film scans, not 4K scans, to actually get all the detail, a 4K scan doesn't actually get you 4K of detail, you need to scan higher and like i said not all films are going to have the resolution anyways.
Discussions often veer off the subject matter, it's one of the fun things about the internet, they veer back on too, this forum is one of the better ones in allowing this to happen and is lightly moderated, i'd stick around if i was you, as i get older i am starting to understand there is no point in getting annoyed at the world or anyone in it, well maybe just a little annoyed with the Tories/Republicans and Papa Smurf.
