I'm one of those people who tends to buy many of the latest gadgets, more money than sense perhaps, though I blame it on having a depraved childhood.
I have a DVD collection probably in the region of 350-400 films, however, over the last year I have started replacing some of my favourite films with Blu-Ray versions which I used to play on my PS3.
Recently I bought the Sony BDP-S350 +6 Blu-Ray film package from Blockbusters so we didn't have to keep carrying the PS3 from my study into the lounge. Just lately I've been spending a fair amount of money building up my Blu-Ray library of discs, mostly from Eb*y and Pl*y.com etc.
Due to the costs involved and the fact that I allready have most of the films already on standard DVD format anyway, I am beginning to doubt the sanity of what I've been doing. After all, even a standard DVD looks quite good after its been upscaled by the Sony player, and though its still not quite as good as Blu-ray, they do look pretty good.
This morning a moment of sanity returned, and I'm starting to think about what I'm doing. What prompted this, was that I was about to order a large screen HD projector from Play.com, merely because my son has one, stupid idea really, though it did look good. (I just dont need one...lol)
IOW. Are we all being ripped off...
Whats your thoughts on Blu-ray, are you replacing your old DVD's, or restricting Blu-ray buys to just new films or perhaps you regard it as a complete waste of money.
So far I've mainly restricted myself to buying new titles on BR and replacing about 25 of my favourite films.
Yes the films do look good, but is that little extra defination worth all the money we are spending.
