Define marginal, because from my standpoint, the difference is more than marginal. The only dvds I purchase now are those priced $10 and under. Anything above that, forget about it.

Oh good, another HDM is dead thread. I was worried -- it's been hours.
Couldn't this insight have been posted in one of the countless threads on the same subject?

There is always someone who complains of this type of thing.
But this is a discussion forum, they churn constantly.
And to answer your question yes, but i didn't.

HDM is only a marginal improvement over over DVD if you don't have the eyes and ears and equipment to appreciate the difference. Blu-ray is a high end complement to DVD the same way that a Ferrari is a high end complement to a Honda. Do you really think that the folks at Ferrari obsess over the success of Honda?

Not when new posts address new topics. But complaints are warranted when a topic has been discussed at great length in many many threads, some on which have been locked.
If the answer is "yes," then the discussion should continue in one of those many threads. The proliferation of theads on the same topic makes AVS difficult to read and navigate, and leads to pointless redundant discussions.

Who really cares. This is a high definition content discussion forum. Take your "DVD is champion" argument to a forum that cares.

I don't see why it must totally and utterly destroy DVD for me to enjoy it.

HDM is here to stay even if it doesnt completely take over SD media.
45% of America has an HDTV, assuming at least half those people would like to take advantage of the HD part of their TV theres no choice but for both DVD and Blu Rays to coexist.

Well they you are excused from having to bump my thread if it bothers you so much.
This whole area is pointless and is here merely to spawn discussion.
