If studios are really interested in quoting sales figures, now is not the time to have second thoughts about HD-DVD. It's time to expand your collection. Buy all you can afford. I have twenty-eight and counting. I'm doing my part, what about you?

I'll buy when they actually have titles out I want to buy. I already have over 40, but I don't see me buying more than one or two in the next few months, if that many. If they want more of my money, they are going to have to earn it. If they want my recomendation to freinds and coworkers, they are going to have to earn that also.

As much as I watch HD-DVD's, I just know from my DVD buying pattern that I rarely watch most of the movies more than once so I can't justify buying HD-DVD and would rather rent. I have 6 titles of which 3 I doubt I will watch again. I will buy the Matrix trilogy and LOTR trilogy for sure when they come out.

I have 65 HD DVDs, but there's only ONE on my list for the next six months (which is on order). So far, there just isn't anything worth buying in 2007 (that has been announced). On the other hand, there are 18 BD titles that I'm interested in and count is rising. Unless Fox, Disney, Sony, MGM, etc decide to go neutral soon (which I thought would eventually happen when I bought my HD DVD player -- but now realize it may not), I'll have no other choice but to invest in BD technology as well.


Even if HD DVD comes through with their rumored "300 titles" in 2007, I would still seriously have to consider BD since there are a LOT of movies from Disney, Sony, MGM, Fox (among others) that I'm interested in.

I've owned HD DVD since the start of December and have 16 already...considering either Constantine, Casino or Deer Hunter as my next purchase.

I bought my 28 and then there's been nothing to itch my google checkout account in the last month. The sinister lure of the Sony Siren is calling, but thankfully I can't afford the hardware, but the software is tempting... come on Universal/Warner, give me something to buy!

I'm more or less in the same boat. I'm beginning to wonder if Universal has alrteady shot its wad, despite having an 80 year back catalog. There aren't enough BD titles (yet) for me to justify buying into it.

Just got my HD DVD for xmas...but I've got 7 HD DVDs so far...and I hope to get a ton more in the future!


I just can't find any reasonable places to buy HD DVD in Toronto. THe only places I've bought them so far are Best Buy and Amazon.ca that were reasonably priced. I checked Costco and Sam's Club but none of them carry it.


Are there any good (affordable) distributors of HD DVD in Toronto besides BB & FS & WM?


I want to pick up Lucky Number Slevin & Clerks II

I had the same problem. Check the net prices at futureshop and BB and you can also try BayStreet Video.

My solution has been to place orders at Amazon(us) for 4 HDdvds at a time. They usually list them at 20 or 24 US and my total bill including expedited shipping is usually around 100US or a cool 120cdn on my credit card. It's still much cheaper than 40 a pop at BB and FS. Just shop them and compare to see which ones are worth importing to save you money.

In Western Canada Walmart is the best buy after that Future shop or Best Buy just check internet first as instore prices are higher than the same store online. Won't buy anything over 23.99 or 24.99 after that Amazon.com is better deal even with shipping.

I want to help HD DVD but I'm no millionaire, I will only buy movies that I like. If the HD DVD camp can't deliver on content, well that's too bad, it will loose. At the same time, I am not jumping on Blu-ray anytime soon, not until the war has officially ended.

Yeah..i haven't bought a HD DVD or $23.99CDN (except Goodfellas, I saw it for $26.99CDN at BB so I had to buy it).


When i do buy from amazon.ca, i make sure I buy $50CDN worth so I can atleast get free shipping.


I'll check out the HMV warehouse. I have a friend who said they could get me wholesale HD DVDs before I got my HD DVD Player, so i'll talk to them see if they can. Thanks for your help.

I ordered 4 last night via Amazon. Hoping for some good new releases...



There is no movie on BD now or coming down the pipe that would compel me to cross to the Sony side. I will not be Rayed. When those studios get my movie money it will be for SD DVD versions only.
