Poll: Do You Copy Blu-ray Movies?

Postby Ian on Mon Dec 20, 2010 1:19 pm

With Blu-ray growing in popularity, I'm curious to see how many people are making copies of movies. This isn't a question of if its right or wrong to make make a copy, but how many people are actually doing it. If not, please say why (media costs, time, etc).

Do You Copy Blu-ray Movies?

The whole Blu-ray thing seems too costly, not something I really need yet. The burners are expensive, media is expensive. I'm still happy with standard DVD movies for now.

I have done it but for now the price of blanks is the thing holding me back. I paid 250 for the LG GGW20l that does bd and reads HD DVD before they all were gone as I have both players and movie types. I figured I wouldn't use it much for a while but wanted the capability for when prices start falling on media.
Now some of the off brand stuff is fairly cheap, just haven't picked any up yet.
The burners are now at 100 on sale and should continue to drop and get faster, just like CD and DVD burners have done so now or soon is the time to jump in I think.

I'm not into high-def yet. No Blu-Ray in the house.

LTH BD-R media is dirt cheap right now. The only problem is that a lot of the older Blu-ray players don't support it.

I've seen them for sale cheap and surprisingly my drive is supposed to support them. Don't know about my first gen Panasonic player though but so far it has played everything and every movie I stuff in it, though some it loads extremely slowly. BD10a, their very first one and a beautiful machine to look at, also does a excellent job of playing back DVD's and BluRay movies. And for a bonus round it supports AVCHD disks and DVD Audio disks.

same as redk9258- no high def, no BluRay. Otherwise, I would :D, but the drive would have to support some kind of quality scanning.
