I dunno, I guess I just don't "get" the excitement over bluray. I didn't get it over HD channels either. Sure it's a bit better, but is it worth spending a few hundred more dollars to get a set of DVDs that are slightly better than the ones I already have? I don't think so.
Stating it's merely "a bit better" is MASSIVELY
underselling the difference in quality IMHO. Take the TNG Blu-ray's for example, the increase in sharpness, clarity, contrast, colour rendition etc is colossal
- a bit better is not even close. The DVD's are pitiful in comparison.
I fully understand some people don't wish to invest in new technology - fair enough. But Blu-ray has been plagued by this ridiculous "it's not much better" nonsense since inception - often by those (not suggesting you here, Star Grinch
) who haven't really observed the format properly, or worse, not at all - and are merely parroting the bullshit.
