I'm not getting either. It's going to be a long time before I get anything other than my current 27" TV, so I'm not interested in either format. I'm perfectly happy with regular DVDs, as long as companies keep releasing Special, Deluxe and Ultimate Editions.

They take all the fun out of box sets.
And I have a pretty bad TV.

I'm hoping that HD-DVDs win because I'm sick of Sony and their c**ppy "Incompatible with anything else" formats  - Memory-sticks/Atrac/etc...

I refuse to buy Sony just because of this!!!

I don't care for either right now. I'm just still sticking to DVD. I think it will be a long time before prices drop. Plus not every one has bought an HD TV.

Nearly a year later and I have made my decision: HD-DVD baby and it rocks! If you doubt my opinion check out Home Theater Forum and AVS Forum.
