What?

Can you point to a credible source for your 'an old CRT TV would have a better picture' stance? Because, frankly, it's ********.

A high quality CRT TV that's been set up correctly might have a better picture than some flat panel TVs. I'm not sure where you got this adamant belief that any old crappy CRT TV will knock the socks off any modern flat panel.

Thus showing the whole HD to be a bit of a swizz. But lets be honest we were promised the best picture with DVDs and now BluRay says the same. But how long until we get super HD which is twice as good again.

I am happy with the DVDs I already have but the new stuff I'll buy will be blue ray as at some point DVDs will vanish as VHS tapes did.

I whould have got the same TV even if my wife got it, it had decent specs, HD ready and a size that would not be too big for our living room and a good price, sure it came from a supermarket but we used vouchers we recieved when we wed so in the end we paid nothing.

That doesnt make any sense. An old CRT TV would make better pictures than a new plasma but HD does make good pictures but its a bit of a swizz.


HD Ready? So is that 720p or 1080p?

The reviews are beginning to arrive.

. The depth of detail is particularly evident in scenes like the wide shots of the Crystal Palace command center, where you can make out individual people at desks and maps on each of the individual screens. To take another example, in the scene where Professor Falken lands in a helicopter, the figure of the pilot sitting next to him is clearly visible, which has not been the case in any previous home video version of the film.

Yeah, hardly any difference. A complete waste of a blu-ray disc. Roborob justified!
