I've currently got the Blu set on pre-order here in the UK, but if the PQ of the Blus isn't up there with the HD-DVDs then I'm not sure spending £30 just for the extras and enhanced AQ is really worth it (especially in the current financial situation). Of course, if the PQ of the Blus is
right up there with the HD-DVDs then I could always sell the HD-DVDs and maybe even make a profit!! I do love the series though and have loads of the books written on the 506 PIR from Stephen Ambrose's 'Band of Brothers' through to Webster's 'Parachute Infantry'. Dilemmas
I don't think you would be disappointed. It really is superb.
I also played with BD 1.1 stuff. It's pretty well done with interesting popup info. There is two sets of 1.1 info, one with factoid, maps, and short PiP documentaries, and other with PiP survivor commentaries. I don't know why they couldn't combine the two, because in order to see one or the other, you have to restart the entire show. Hopefully these were true PiP and not double, or triple encodes.
