    I still have absolutely NO interest in Blu-Ray. I stick to normal DVD's.

    Now THAT is cool. I own 3 copies of the DVD version. Just a matter of sending one of the tab things in... Nifty! I was planning on getting the BR version anyway.

    Will they honor an "upgrade" from HD-DVD to Blu-ray?

    Cool! I bought a couple versions myself (Best buy and Wal-Mart). It'll be worth it to get a rebate.

    Then you haven't experienced HD movies. Once you go blu, you'll never go back.

    I have experienced them. HD movies are great, but I'm still sticking with regular DVD's. I'm perfectly fine with them and their price. I see no need to go HD. There are more important things in life.

    Edit: 7,000th post :D

    I agree - the difference can be quite profound.

    Take a look at the transformers trailers on this site

    Apple - Trailers - Transformers - HD

    If you run the 480p and 1080p trailers side by side (effectively SD and HD versions) - you can really see the difference. If you have a decent screen resolution (I am running 1920 x 1200) - you can fit the windows to screen to give an equivelent view - then freeze frame on the same part of the movie.

    Below are a couple of screen caps I took to show the difference (especially the car badge - whach can be barely read in the 480 version - but is clear in the 1080)

    480p

    1080p

    I already have those movies mentioned or dont want them; besides, does 10$ do much anymore? Itll cover the taxes I guess. Id rather see "a buy one get one free" or "buy one get one half off" deal.

    Though I have both normal and BD movies, I can agree with you. An upconverter can do so much for normal DVDs, thats why I continue to buy them. I usually only get Blueray when they are on sale since $30 is ridiculous.
