Default Dual or Single player?

If you had it to do again, would you buy your format of choice or would you opt for a dual player?

I admit if there was a comparable combo drive it would save me a lot of time and hassel. They are just too expensive but if this goes on for a few years, which I think it won't I would go with one dual player.

I didn't choose which format to adopt first, it kinda chose me. I had the opportunity to get an HD DVD drive for $150, and I took it. Blu-ray so far hasn't presented me with that opportunity.

The device of choice is definitely a dual format drive. That would be the case no matter which one I got first. The studios and CEs can't work it out, and the technology necessary to span the gap is pretty simple, so no brainer.

Frankly, with Paramount going HD DVD only and Fox getting back into the Blu game, the only smart money is on dual-format players. The die hards can support their chosen format, I just want to watch movies. Being neutral allows me to do this.

It would not surprise me to see more CE companies going the route of LG and Samsung and start looking into dual-format players.

I deffinatly plan on going both, and the samsung player will be my choice. The consistant bickering on either side is laughable. I seriously think it's more brand loyalty then just enjoying some highdef goodness.
