    Yea thats still pretty expensive. But i cant wait till the prices of blu ray players and burners go down. Im gonna have to get one. Theyll probably have more copyright protection though. i guess well see in the future.

    Right now with the cost of a blank blu-ray 25/50GB disk, it's still a better deal to buy the movie at a good discount. Not to mention the price of a blu-ray burner and the high possibility of just 1 bad burn.

    This is just for the media alone:
    25GB write once or read/write from $18+
    50GB write once from $30+

    *** Good deal on a blu-ray movie $20 (no brainer)

    So what are we really trying to save on?

    Okay, so our only fall back is to burn a blu-ray movie to several DL DVD's. So we search for a program that will allow us to split across multiple DL disks in full HD quality at about a $1 or $2 a disk. Remember, we're on the bleeding edge of technology for those of us brave to venture out.

    Thanks "sam1dog". Here is more food for thought and something I jumped all over. Someone posted that Amazon was offering a 50% off on Blu-ray movies. I checked and that offer isn't current anymore, but they were offering upto 33% off on most Blu-ray movies, which is a pretty good deal on some decent movies that would end up costing $20.

    I checked back just recently and it looks like they have another good deal. If you buy 2 Blu-ray movies you can get a 3rd movie for free (the lesser valued one), but you must pick from their select list of Blu-ray titles. I found 6 titles that I wanted and got $40 off on 6 titles which dropped my cost per movie to around $16.67 per Blu-ray movie! How do you beat that!

    My thoughts on this so far is, if I can buy a Blu-ray movie title for
    around $20 (discounted) which will play full digital audio, what's the value in trying to "copy" a blu-ray movie to a standard DL DVD which gives me the video quality but the audio is 2 channels?

    So right now, the pricing of discounted retail Blu-ray movies are cheaper and a better value than paying as much or more for a Blu-ray "blank"! That's a hard cold fact! You do the math.

    It's clear to me, as long the Blu-ray media is costing $18 and up, buying the actual movie is a better value and you enjoy FULL DIGITAL AUDIO and you get the fancy box to boot!
