DVD v Blu Ray

Guys and girls,
 
Im a massive fan of home cinema and have and have a massive dvd collection that im very proud of...
 
I've noticed blu ray is becoming more and more popular, I have a PS3 that I could play blu rays on but as of yet have not bought any blu rays as im still happy with how dvd's looked and sound upscaled on my 50" samsung plasma and full home cinema surround set up
 
Is it worth the extra few quid for a blu ray and is the picture and sound quality that noticeable compared to upscaled dvds, also do you think the dvd will be slowly fazed out for blu rays ?

Sleep, ****, work, gym, sleep !

    Depends very much on the spec of the TV you have.
     
    If your Plasma has a high spec then yes very much worth it.

    I simply do not buy dvd's anymore - I only buy blurays.  yes, some are better quality than others, but imo they are far better than the standard dvd medium.

    I find some blu-rays look the same as dvd. Others can look stunning though. Defends on the film. Avatar was one of the best quality blu-rays ive seen.

    The difference between a decent blu ray film on a high spec TV and a normal DVD is like night and day, simply stunning.
     
    On an average TV many Blu rays only show subtle differences, its as much if not more about your TV as the disc.

    and is the picture and sound quality that noticeable compared to upscaled dvds

     
    Picture: Absolutely, especially if you are seated reasonably close to the screen.
    Audio: For most, almost certainly limited to the quality of their amp and speaker setup.

    Regardless, unless the adult film industry takes to the new format, it'll fail.

    THis was actually the truly best thing about having more memory on a disc...ciompletely uncompressed soundtrakcs on the film.

    Must be some small company thinking they can do this...I cant see ANY new physical memeory media ever being released after BR now, everything you want will be streamed via the internet...yes..a ways off, but by the time we are done with BR..which will only be a few years now IMO.

    2nd cu3ed, it will all be about streaming, via media hubs, games consoles etc
     
    BR will be last of the physical state media, IMO I can't see BR being around for too long either (in comparison to VHS and DVD).

    No idea what company , this is info given to me by the mrs parents.
     
    They were told "This is a new format that will be replacing blu ray next year" was being played on a OLEDTV.

    I think it's all relative.  I don't have any experience of blue-ray but I'm guessing that a £1000 DVD player would be better than a £200-£300 blue-ray player.  I'm basing this on my knowledge of hifi where a fairly pricey CD player would out perform a DVD-A or SACD player of lesser price (possibly even of same price).
     
    And no just like DVD-A and SACD format has come out for music for a few years now, CDs are still the most bought, so I certainly don't see DVDs being phased out.  Way too many users of DVD.  Perhaps technology behind DVD players being more developed and advanced is how I imagine that would go.
