Is Blu-ray or HD better?
Hi-Def DVD: Blu-Ray vs HD-DVD player technologies. On paper most will concede, that at its best, Blu-Ray has the advantage over HD-DVD in technology. Both formats have the info recorded at 1080p, although early HD-DVD players (notably the first – the Toshiba), only offers 1080i output, not 1080p.
Is Blu-ray still used?
Yes. Blu-ray has not gone the way of VHS tape, although many folks still have a few in their collection even though they may not have played them in a while. But the numbers of “New” adopters, folks that are planning to get a new or a newer bluray player has gone down.
What’s the difference between DVD and Blu?
A DVD is a standard definition device. You won’t get high-definition movie viewing on your DVD, just 480 SD. On the other hand, Blu-Ray is made for HD, and you’ll get the best picture possible, with 1080 HD capability for your Blu-Ray movies. So if you are looking for a quality picture, Blue Ray is the clear winner.
