But, because neither technology is available, they had the features of each layed out side by side and asked people which they thought was better based solely on this info. Who knows what info they presented and how truthful it was.
IMO.. studies like this are a crock of shit. In another few weeks, we'll probably see one done by the DVD Forum stating HD DVD was chosen 5 to 1 over BD.

Or will that point become negligable once world + dog + cat start producing BRD's?
dolphinius_rex wrote:In the long run, the new hardware costs, and greater difficulty in manufacturing such high density media... we should see much less competition from lower end manufacturing plants (read many Chinese and Hong Kong Based) so the quality level should be higher in the media as well. Hopefully we will see less code abuse and screwing around with brand names as well!

jberry wrote:not to be argumentative (really am not as your posts are always good) but I am not sure how anyone can have a preference...any preferences now are based on what marketing you have read and not on hands on use....for me I think they are both nonsense....fighting it out and all...
for me I need to be able to see that MANY users (only pros here since I cannot buy HD or BR) have used the products and have been able to critique them properly, which is not the case here.
I would like a unified format, in the end there will be 2...and all players will play both, the only recorders that will sell will be the next "super Multi HD BD" that will record both....so in the end the only thing that will matter is what the media testers (i.e. you) have to say about burns and media quality. Of course we cannot do this, so in my opinion any such surveys or preferences at this stage of the game is spurious at best....but certainly interesting to argue about!!!!
Now if only TY would make a silk-screened surface!!!!
jberry wrote:nice points again dolph....but as I said above I do not think it matters at all....the likely scenario is that both will be out there, and end users will have drives that do both, so in the end it will be guys like you who do the reviews who will sway people more (unless HD buys out BR or other way around). In any case the cost will be prohibative for a long time...so I am happy waiting for your Benq 1640 review.
BTW where is the review...takin yer sweet time (HAHA). Seriously thought....quiet on the burner front so I am looking forward to the 1640.

With my luck, it'll be out around the same time they pop in to stores
