Blu-Ray is supposed to have more advantages. I could list them but I'm too lazy to go get the specs from another site to post here. Sorry! :p That being said, I'm for Blu-Ray.

I really hope that a format becomes standardized though. I'm afraid it will really hurt the adoption of the technology if there are competing formats.

Truth be told I think to a point that as already happened since there are currently 2 formats though a burner that supports all formats would be the best idea

hehe, I just realized my error. I have a DVD+RW/+R in my computer. I just never owned or watched a home, stand alone, DVD player

Blu Ray has more upside potential for capacity. When they drop from $300 to $69 bucks like the 16X Dual Layer drives have in the last 6 months I'll get one...

I hope none of the catch on any time soon, cause they'll just re-release all the current DVDs for that format. That will probably kill the market (one of the fastest growing mrkets ever) since so many people have invested so much money in them, they will feel cheated and not buy any more

Good point, Khayman, but I read that this probably won't be the case for a LONG time to come. Hi-def DVDs will only be made for the most part for new releases, definitely side-by-side with a normal DVD just as DVD and VHS have been released together in the past. Companies have invested so much in re-releasing older movies in the DVD format that they're not about to go and re-re-release them all in the hi-def format. In the way that HD, digital and analog TV all co-exist today, the same will be true for a long time to come with the storage media.
