My personal interest is in upgrading a DVD-RW drive that is near end of life. Sorry if it seemed like trolling. I found the discussion more interesting than PC vs Mac etc.

Unlike JimC and others, I really like the workflow where I copy all photos from a trip onto optical disc, label it, and put it on a shelf. Much easier to find than folders on HDD.

BTW, 4 to 1 port automatic HDMI switchers are cheap are work fine for a 2 or 3 port TV where you need to hook up more devices.

We have one of those, but it keeps switching automatically at the wrong time, e.g. when a show starts recording on a different DVR. Our TV needs more inputs.

Of course captions are better on HD! This thread was about Blu-Ray, not HD.

Well as has been said blu-ray is good for that now. It now costs no more per MB than DVD and it burns MUCH faster per MB and it takes up a lot less storage room since each disc holds so much more. Plus you can get special 1000 year discs (so you don't have to worry about disc rot, which I pray is not as bad as some claim, since I have lots of stuff on regular discs blu-eay and dvd). Last year I switched over to blu-ray from DVD for that, earlier on blu-ray burning used to cost way more.
