I'm only aware of 3-disc BD too.

I've had the two-disk DVD version for almost a fortnight now.
I have been enjoying my DVD (gift from a connected friend) for almost a month now.

EDIT: Yeah...I think that there's only the 3-disc BR, in the US anyway. I can't find any other version on any online site.

No matter, as I'll be buying that version anyway.
WalMart has the 3-disc Blu-ray for $19.96 US (and free shipping from WalMart.com). It is a good bargain for those with Blu-ray. I have an upconvert DVD player which does fine for me (currently $29.00 for Magnavox upconvert to 1080p at WalMart).

Walmart it is, that's a great price for Blu-Ray. Hard to pass up at that price.

^ Better hope Wal-Mart doesn't censor the sumbitch. They've been known to do that, haven't they?

I have, yes, but what does Wal-Mart specifically have to do with that? Did they censor its DVD release?

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

I'm going to have to wait at least 3 weeks or so before I buy it. I'm in the process of buying an HDTV and Blu-Ray player right now. But when I do have them, Star Trek will be my first Blu-Ray, alongside Up.

Standard bluray, bought 26/10.

You're assumptions are showing: we're not all in the US.

Yes, but it's the HDTV that'll get ya.
I got a 26" 720p lcd- at 26" there's no BIG difference between what I bought & a 1080. A good dvd on my upconvert player looks great. The newest release of Voyage Home absolutely blew me away. My TV, HDMI cable & player came in at under $355.
Near HD on a budget.

If I EVER should get a 32" or bigger, THEN I'd have to go BD, I conjure.
If you're only talking about pixels the above is true. But even at 26", Blu-Ray whips DVD in richness of color and quality of sound. AVSForum gave the Blu-ray a '100' for audio. No way the DVD will match that.

As someone with a 23" 720p HDTV, I can wholeheartedly vouch for that. The difference is very noticeable.

As far as price goes... I don't really think that's a barrier anymore either. I picked up a 40" 1080p set for $568, a Magnavox Blu-Ray player for $148 and a Home Theater-in-a-Box for $149 to upgrade from my 32" 720p set and PS3 for under a grand in anticipation of Star Trek. God, I'm a geek!

I got my HDTV a little over a year ago, and paid $150, which isn't bad. It's an AOC, and it works great. Picture is terrific, audio is, well, it's alright, but the visual aspect is great.

After upgrading I popped in the Blu-Ray of 2010. Impressive is an understatement. Even at 2 channel you'd be suprised at how good your sound can be just patching it through a regular stereo which is what I did before getting the HTIB.
