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

Target Enterprise case (2-disc dvd). I may also buy the Blu-Ray Enterprise case so I can have that and not put it together. As well as have the Blu-Ray when I do upgrade asap.

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.
Well, I splurged this morning and paid $30 for this GPX home stereo system with line input and remote. The sound is much, much better than the tin can, tinny sound I got from my HDTV.



All of this for the new movie!
(By the way, the image on the screen is the trailer for Star Trek XI off the ST:FC Blu-ray).

I'm happy.

While I'm at it, here's Star Trek: First Contact on my 720p HDTV. I own the Blu-ray and the DVD version and figured I'd show it to people who were on the fence. It may make a difference and it may not, but I offer a little help.

Anyhoo, here they are. Now the DVD is being upconverted (Blu-ray players upconvert DVDs) so the image quality is definitely better than a standard DVD player. That being said:


Blu-ray:



DVD:

That doesn't even begin to do BD justice.

The one thing I noticed just going through a bit of FC when I got it was, you see so much more detail in the background. It almost felt like I was watching a totally different movie.

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

Oh, and btw, I decided to pick up the 1-disc barebones DVD (got it for $9.49 on Amazon) just to have something to take to show to people who haven't seen the movie and haven't upgraded to BD yet.

Don't be sad, honey, I'm still squeeing.

The difference is mind-boggling. But I still love my dvds.

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

We're going to get 1 single disk as a gift to a friend who loves the film but we know doesn't care for special features.

We're getting the 2 disk DVD for use now AND 1 - 3 disk BD set for when we finally do our upgrade (which has been on hold due to uncertainty over which BD player/HDTV to purchase. )

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

What's the use of buying a dvd that doesn't have commentary?

Haven't decided. I've not even seen the differences between all the different versions.

Basic question: do you just want the movie plain & simple?
Single disk.
If you want more, that's where the decisions must be made.
My thing is deleted scenes. Other peeps like featurettes, commentary & stuff.
