I've seen both and currently have a 360 HD-DVD and I see no quality difference on my 73" Mit DLP nor on my 50" plasma. I have seen the PS3 pull it's HDCP crap and not work on 1080p LCDs though.
I'd like to know exactly why a prev post says BD is the better format. Why because we can expect a rootkit
with the PC players if BD were to eventually win? I'd like to see a PS3 connect to a PC and allow you to rip a BD with Slysoft.
BTW Michael Bay isn't doing Transformers 2 in HD-DVD, all he is doing is Transformers 2. Paramount is the one that will stream it, sell it, market it, etc... into their choice of HD format. No wonder so many of you eat up the propaganda. If you read it on the Internet, it must be true right?!
I pretty much agree here. Except on the root-kit part. If you read further into the matter you linked, you'll see that it was the way the security software worked, and that it had been phased out in a product update. It was, in no way, malicious. I seriously doubt Sony will get involved in another true rootkit fiasco involving A/V media. (but then again, the last part of my statement is only opinion.)
As far as the person saying that Blu-Ray is better, I can only assume he means because it can do 25GB per layer vs 15GB. That doesn't really matter anyway. With the current encoding and resolutions, neither format has reached full disk capacity, unless you want to possibly count extras. I personally don't care about extras.
