^^^ A better comparison would have been to DL DVDs and on that front SL BDs look even better. A quality DL DVD goes for ~$1/disc(8.5GB, 1/3rd of a SL BD) but a SL BD costs half!
The main thing holding me back from BDs is the player situation. I have lots of quality DVD players with all the features I want, even thought I tried many different BD players and finally settled on several that matched my needs the closest, they still pale in comparison to my DVD players
Why in the world the developers(SONY) would have come up with a format that lacked so many features that were a given(or at least on Sony DVD players) is beyond me, like they didn't even care
Oh Kelson, you linked a internal BD player, do you have a suggestion for a good USB BD burner? I'd like to be able to also use it with my laptop which kind of eliminates internal burners. Laptops with BD burners
are all but impossible to fine, some play BDs but very few if any burn them.
