a lot of the posts on this forum seem a bit humourless and obsessive why, is it some kind of side effect of using blue ray technology that we have not been told about?

Calling it 'blue ray' usually does the trick.

Speaking as a blu-ray enthusiast, I can't say this thread has added too much to my annoyance levels so far.

i'm in no hurry to buy any blu ray but i'm not sure where this discussion to going. surely, fans of both formats can happily co-exist, like the formats themselves.

so far most posts seem to support my theory that bloo ray affects people's sense of humour

I like to say "have you heard about the next gen discs that are coming out soon which are 4 times better than Bluray? Glad I waited to upgrade!"

mention to some of the forums bores, no shortage of them, that blu ray is on its way out. Next thing they're fighting over one another to post page upon page of meaningless sales figures to big themselves up and kid themselves into thinking its the best format ever and badger non believers into sharing that view.

1) Saying you can't see the difference
2) Saying you can't hear the difference
3) Saying "is it going to play?" when it's loading
4) Saying it's not worth the extra 2
5) Spelling it "blue ray"

Any of those, really. Although "annoy" isn't quite the right word - it's more like a mild despair at the philistine nature of your fellow man (or woman).

Oh, and saying *anything* about 4K. That's pretty distressing.

But if you really want to annoy a Blu-ray enthusiast, try casually mentioning during a movie that you can see moire patterning on that character's clothing. You'll sound like you know what you're talking about, and they'll be compelled to spend the rest of the movie looking for it.

15 people think the opening post adds nothing to the discussion.

How can the opening post add nothing? It's the opening post, what CAN it add to the discussion?

Diabologic. I love it.

That's the nature of the blur ray worshippers cult on the Amazon website forum. Any negative remark earns a thousand thumbs down from a bunch of sad blur ray obsessives that inhabit the forum, first post or not.

Blur ray will never replace dvd - thats a fact, and this new 4k format and resulting 4k blur ray disc will make blur ray obsolete. Its just a con to keep gullible fools buying new hardware every couple of years.

Judging by the fact I can't see the majority of the posts in this thread (or the thread title) because I've blocked the posters, I'm guessing it's something by the missing chromosome brigade. If that's the case, why keep replying to them? They have nothing useful to contribute and are simply here to get a rise out of people who are genuinely interested in the format. Please, join me in adding them to the block list - this forum is all the better for it.

Is this a consolation thread for those who either dont understand or havent seen the benefits of blu ray? If you honestly cant see a difference or are waiting for "the next geneneration format" then good for you. In the 1960s many people resisted the move to colour TV, perhaps they also couldnt see the benefits or wanted to wait for "the next geneneration format"? Oh well, enjoy your lower resolution and 1990s style viewing experience!
