Hopefully Warner will continue this with other releases, maybe get Universal to follow. Price is my only complaint about combos.

That's nice, my only complaint about combos is the price.

Combo's have more problems that price. It has been my experience that people prefer their disks to play from begining to end without skiping and locking up. Most prefer disk art as well.

Twin disks could be the answer if they can make them reliable. Don't hold your breath though.

I have never had a single problem with combo discs. Personally I love having a standard DVD side along with HD DVD. Seems like some of the newer firmware updates have addressed most of the issues that people were having.

I have this image in my head of someone who doesn't even know what a combo disc is buying one and only watching the s dvd side for the life of the disc.

I am just not really to much into combo disks. I enjoy having the disk art and the price has always pissed me off. At least they are fixing what they can with the combos. I will still get it regardless though

I wouldn't mind the combo discs if Warner were to release an HD-DVD only edition the same day. That way then at least I could decide if I really want the SD-DVD side.

Still.... nice move by Warner to have the combo edition for Potter at the same price as the Bluray edition.

I agree. I have not had any problems with combos so far (touch wood) and my only objection to them is the higher price.

If a HD DVD/DVD combo is the same price as a Blu-ray disc then it is a no-brainer for me.

While I do like disc art, I can live without it.

I have no problem with combo's and have never had any playback problems either.

The whole "disc art" argument makes me laugh, I guess I just don't get it, because either the disc is in the player or its case but never in my hand being admired...
