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.

Sorry, I can't afford a 1080p HDTV.

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.
