I'll tell ya why, Monty!!!!!
I too just wanted to know why Lagosian who is so clearly HDdvd biased, (although he says go format neutral in his sig) posts in virtually every BD thread here when all he ever does is blast BD...?
I just re-read dozens and dozens of his posts where all he does is blast BD and Sony and holds up HDdvd to some lofty messiah like standard, all the while saying that, "I have a Sammy..." so it's ok, because he's dual format. He goes into any thread here no matter how trivial and starts sh*t.
What's funnier is I even found this post with him blasting yoyoiner from months back (he has since been banned btw...)

Almost every post that you have is a spin on the superiority of BR and how HD DVD would soon perish. Anyone is welcome to read your posts and decide for themselves.
What does it matter if you choose one format over the other? It's your money...you are the boss. But do not insult our integrity by outright misleading posts that border on LYING.
I own a Sammy and love it, and would never say anything to offend buyers of the BR format which I wholeheartedly support. But I would not lie and discredit HD DVD which so far, has been the best overall PQ provider since inception.
I believe that there is more than enough room for both formats.
If you love BR and hate HD DVD, own up to it! Spare us the "I own both format crap...because YOU DON'T!
That's pretty funny. There he was blasting Yoyoiner for what he himself now does here daily. Blasting another format every post.
sheesh, hypocrisy, much...?
all ya gotta do is look at the post history. When is the last time lagosian even said ONE positive thing about BD recently...? yet he's here in virtually every BD thread.
AHA! Found this post from Lagosian in November...

Don't think that a lot of people are blind to the fact that if it had not been for HD DVD, Sony would have stuck us with the bad PQ of "House of Flying Daggers" and "The Fifth Element" as the standard of HD PQ. In its infantile state we would not have seen the difference or cared! Given Sony's reputation I would never have supported Blu-ray if other CE companies were not involved.
I like the war!
It is assuring us of the best PQ and AQ for HD that we could possibly get. I hope that BOTH formats survive for posterity sake, if nothing else.
all makes sense now what he's doing here. He HATES Sony, LIKES the war!
wants both formats to survive! THAT's why he's so Pro-HDdvd now. Because they're the underdog and the tide has been turning towards BD!
but I'll bet he'll deny this even though these are his exact quotes that anyone doing a search can find. Just think, a member who LIKES the war and wants it to continue.... I guess if the new Universal releases really do start to take off and BD stalemates he'll start saying how great BD is so that it will balance out.
Does anyone remember that if it hadn't been for Say, SONY and BD, that next gen HD media would have been red laser? I believe at 720P max...? Sony and BD FORCED HDdvd to uprez...
