Default own both formats, if so which one do u prefer

I have owned both formats but like hd dvd beter and have gone strickly to hd dvd and have gotten rid of blue ray. I am just wondering what others that have owned both think about it and which one they think is a better product and why. so people that own or have owned both formats leave your thoughts about which one you think is better and why.

I have both and have been equally impressed and happy with both.

I favor Blu-ray simply because they have more movies coming out that I like but that is more of a taste issue rather than a technology issue.

I have the toshiba hd a2 hd dvd player and before that I had the xbox 360 add on then before that I had the ps3. The reason I have the a2 instead of the a20 is my projector is only 1080i capable.. it is a optoma hd72.

The reason that I prefer hd dvd over blue ray is the simple fact that they have given me what they have promised from the start. and the fact that you can buy hd dvd players for half the price of the blueray is a plus.

I own both formats and at the start of it all I thought it would be watchign more bluray but i've been watching HD mostly and it has all been Universal titles. I don't think it one is better than the other quality wise, but movie wish its been HD.

I really don't prefer one to the other, although I do pick the HD DVD, if it's released identically on both formats, mostly because I prefer the color red... And there is more titles o HD DVD that suits my taste.

On the other hand, many HD DVD's give me trouble. Not much, but maybe a stuttering here and there (I never had to return any). So I do feel that Blu-ray is more stable, although it may just be that my Panasonic player is much more stable than my XA1.

Right now, I don't really care who "wins". As long as I get movies in one of the formats, that's good enough for me.

I own both HD and BR, and I'd say quality wise they are about the same. I would like to see HD win, since I'm not a particular fan of region codes.

I had a PS3 and 360 Add On, and slightly favored the Blu Ray......I just bought the Toshiba A-30 today though, so I'll come back here in a few days or so and post my thoughts and which format I now favor. The 360 Add On was very low on volume, which dragged it down a bit for me.

I have a PS3 and an HD-A3 and love both, but for different reasons.

To me the Toshiba (HD-DVD) has a better picture but less actual movies, The PS3 (Blue -Ray) because of all the Disney movies and others has more movies for me and the family.

But like I said, I love both , either format blows away standard DVD's.

Its too bad both camps never got together, although we would not have $99.00 players so quick with no competition.
