Default Article: HD DVD Beats Blu-ray

Man I love the Title of this Article.

http://www.t3.co.uk/news/247/enterta...d_beats_bluray

Seems the HD-XE1 beat out both the Panasonic and Samsung Blu-Ray Units at the Home Cinema Choice awards.

"The HD DVD format wins out because it is simply the genuine article. Blu-Ray hardware and SOFTWARE is trailing behind HD DVD, which offers genuine benefits."

Backs up what a lot of HD DVD fans have know for a long time HD DVD just looks better.

I like the fact that this article is mentioning the real thing and not gaming consoles.
I would rather one of those cheap chinese players in any of the formats than the consoles.

What is the price of the HD-XE1 right now?

It doesn't say anything about HD DVD looking better at all.

OMG!!!! someone posted on a blog that HD DVD beats Blu-ray!!!!1111!!11!

Format war is over, let's pack it home folks...

BTW, who the heck is Home Cinema Choice and why do we care what they have to say?

Also the blog gives no pointer to an article stating that the Toshiba player won anything. A cursory search of http://www.homecinemachoice.com/ yielded no info of this sort.

Anyone got better info?

Are they referring to IME here? Based on my personal experience, Blu-Ray so far has offered the better overall movie watching experience (lossless audio). I would definitely agree that IME for HD DVD is further along at this point, but I will take lossless audio anyday over IME.

How is a gaming console (either the 360 addon or the PS3) not the real thing?

They have both produce great pictures on an HDTV, don't they?

I believe the 360 add-on uses the same drive that Toshiba uses in their G2 players. And the PS3 is constantly reviewed by professional sites/magazines as being one of the best Blu-Ray players no the maket.

I have no issue with the PQ of my add-on. Just AQ..

You are right.
The disadvantages of both consoles are minimal rearding the results.
What I mean is that a lot of people will never consider gaming consoles as part of their Home Theater System. The machines do not usually look like very well built. We also have to consider that some people also do n ot want to buy the console since they are never going to play games.
