I can't for the life of me see the value of Blu-ray on a computer.
Firstly, it would be for sole viewing only. Hooking it to a large screen so the family can watch as well, interrupts what most of us buy a computer for in the first place. And, letting anybody else use their computer to watch movies even while they are in the same room, is highly unlikely.
As for choice, even the official Blu-ray site demonstrates that the selection is limited. Right now, there isn't one new release in the past 30 days that are worth buying. Cripes, just how many versions of Toy Story does one really need. Or how many times are we to watch Avatar on Blu-ray.
A few years ago, we conducted a study to on the viewing habits of people re VHS tapes. The least watched, if ever, were tapes that were given to you. Close behind, were tapes you bought; the exception were pre-schoolers. The most watched were rentals. Interesting, the numbers fell the longer the rental period. In other words, a back-tomorrow literally force more to watch the movie vs a video on a three-day or worse a 7-day rental period which simply speaking led people to procrastinate more.
And if we look around ourselves, I'll bet there are more unopened copies of movies Titanic, Star Wars, E.T., etc., but we don't hesitate we will sit in front of the Telli, watching these blockbusters, we just had to have, and with commercials.http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/movies...ow=newreleasesTop Blu-ray Sellers: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/top.php?country=usa
