So I was just watching CNN and their "Technofile" segment came on talking about HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray. In the segment the host and an expert had a Toshiba HD-A1 setup on one flat panel TV and the Samsung BDP-1000 setup on another. The Toshiba was running "The Break Up" while the Samsung was running "Terminator 2". The expert talked about the price difference in how the Toshiba is half the price of the Samsung Blu-Ray player. However, and this is what made me go WTF, the expert said that (and I'm paraphrasing here) the downside to HD-DVD is that you won't get as many features as Blu-Ray due to the fact that Blu-Ray can hold extra space compared to HD-DVD. In conclusion, the expert said to hold off until early 2007 before jumping into high-definition movies. By then he expects there to be many more titles and more hardware support and a more clear path to a winner. Just to throw in my two cents, but what version of HD-DVD and Blu-Ray was the expert talking about? Up to this point it's HD-DVD that has been jam packed with features. Yes, they are just ported over from the DVD versions, but the "in-movie-experience" and "bookmarks" feature (on WB movies) are right now exclusive to HD-DVD. The inclusion of lossless sound right now is on HD-DVD only. Most Blu-Ray movies are barebones or also have special features ported over from the DVD version of the movies released. Now if he was talking about the FUTURE, then I can understand, but he didn't mention anything about the future, he was speaking as if it were the case between the formats right now. He didn't even mention how the HD-A1 is firmware upgradable via the internet or CD sent from Toshiba, to kind of future proof the player for a little while. HD-DVD is really starting to seem like the "little engine that could" in all of this.
