Great article - makes a lot of sense. I own both and can't for the life of me understand how anyone who can afford a BD player not own a very affordable HD DVD player with free movies - unless of course they are zealots and are completely irrational. I own two HD DVD players and two BD players! Life can be very short - how long until Universal and Paramount go neutral, if ever? Why would anyone who loves HD movies not own both, if they can afford it? Their lose!
