Blu-ray players are so cheap now there is no reason not to have one. The only setback is the cost of buying the Blu-ray disks themselves. I wouldn't upgrade my DVD collection with the Blu-ray equivalent. If you look hard enough there is usually sales though. DVD is dead. I did however watch Star Wars epdisode 2 on DVD the other day and the sound and picture quality are fantastic. The acting on the other hand....

DVD may be dead among people like us, but for the general population it is alive and kicking. There are still a lot more people watching movies on DVD than there are Blu.

That's certainly true at the moment, but as more Blu Rays are released and the prices become more reasonable, Dvd's will get fazed out albeit slowly.
