Default Blu-ray's fingerprint and scratch resistance


I was just watching Episode 73 from 27th of June where they tested the Samsung player and report that this format is very very sensitive to scratches and the smallest fingerprint marks make the discs not playable at all.

DVDs were already very sensitive to this and that was annoying.

Originally they had a protective casing for BluRay discs because of this.

Do you have personal experience about this? Is there any difference compared with DVD (or even HD DVD)?

best regards,

The guys testing how well the player does with scratched discs must have either 1) been trying to play a scratched DVD, or 2) been skeet-shooting with the Blu-ray, because I have never seen a scratch on a Blu-ray disc, including Netflix rentals. I won't say they're impervious, but the coating on the Blu-ray is so slick, that even if you do get a smudge (which it seems is hard to do), it wipes off with almost no effort. Even a nail will just slide off the surface like an ice cube on a hot surface without leaving a mark. The player may be sensative, but if Blu-ray discs continue to be coated the way they are now, it will never be an issue.
