Re: On Tuesday, which version of ST:XI will you buy?

Ok, because i am insane, i just called my Best Buy. They are closing the store at 10 pm and then will reopen at midnight for sales of the movie. I asked the girl if they were doing anything special other than selling the movie and she put me on hold...then came back after a bit and said they weren't picking up on that end. She said, "Well, they'll probably be playing the movie on one of the big screen tvs,...but other than that, i don't know..."

So i guess i'm gonna wait til morning....... gah!

Randi: They did not have the movie. However, one TV was showing what I believed to be scenes from the extras. I was more interested in figuring out which TV to buy

Re: On Tuesday, which version of ST:XI will you buy?

Well, I was going to go to Target and get my Star Trek case blu-ray discs, but no, now I'm saddled with babysitting my niece from 8 AM to 5 PM. Just great.

Almost 11 here. I think I'm gonna head out to Best Buy and grab the blu-ray. Then head up on some dark hill and watch the Leonid meteor shower. Hell of a Monday night, I'd say.

I just got the single-disc DVD - it felt weird to actually *buy* a DVD for once...

I live in downtown L.A. I'd have to drive a bit to get somewhere where I'd see anything.

Re: On Tuesday, which version of ST:XI will you buy?

I got it at Midnight at Walmart, the 3 Disc Blu Ray Special Edition for $19.96.
I have watched it once already and will be repeatedly watching it again!

Blu-ray is superior in image quality, features and technological adaptability.

By a quotient so insignificant that it barely is noticeable. And yes, I'm decked out with everything I need to take advantage of BR's "far superior image quality". I've done the side by side comparisons, with the DVD in the DVD player and the Blu-Ray in the BluRay player. Yes, the picture is better on BluRay, but not really by much. Definitely doesn't deserve the "BLURAY!!! WOW!!!" reputation it has gotten.

Seriously, I'll stop buying DVDs when something that is actually far different/better than the current DVD format comes out.

I disagree. Plus, Blu-ray discs are superior in data storage compared to DVDs. The price of Blu-ray players is plummeting, and the price of Blu-ray discs are also dropping rapidly. While DVD will still be around, Blu-ray is a worthy successor.

Oh, and I remember when DVD replaced VHS, there were people ardently defending the VHS format, that the difference between VHS and DVD was negligible, so it all comes down to what you really want.

From an audio/video/content/storage perspective, Blu-ray is superior.

Actually, that's not quite true. A single-layer DVD can hold 4.4 GB of data. A single-layer Blu-Ray disc can hold 50 GB of data. That's more than 10x the information. I can't really think of that as "insignificant".

Re: On Tuesday, which version of ST:XI will you buy?

Well, i gave in, i bought two copies.

Yeah, the two disc DVD edition, which the cover BTW, looks really cheap and piratey.The sleeve is cool, with Pine on the front split up by the wording, but i was expecting a better sleeve inside, it just has Pine and Quinto poster prints that are not even that clear. And in general, the DVD/BD covers couldve been better designed. Like using the poster art of the Golden Gate bridge with San Fran being attacked, which INMHO, was the best image of the posters (Oh, second best, next to he silouette of the Ent). I do like the use of the classic type face though, thought they wouldve gone with the movies version of it but hey, its only a case, eh?


And the BD version, 3 disc. Ready for my Blu Ray player next year. so i have something to look forward to.
