    I believe so, but BR (and HD-DVD) discs are heavily copy-protected. It'll be quite a long time before that's taken care of.

    I DONT THINK THATS TRUE ABOUT FINGERPRINTS (sorry caps was on) but a small scratch could kill the disk as the data is close to the surface, that all depends how good the scratch proof layer is

    time will tell

    PS3 features a blu-ray drive, no disc are not ruined with a scratch or finger print, you could use a nail on then and they'll work.

    In the 80s they also told us that Cds would be undamageable.


    I'll believe the Blu-Ray scratch thing when I see it!

    Hello guys. This is my first post and I just wanted to give my 2 cents on this Bluray hard coating issue.

    I own both the Toshiba HD-DVD player and the Samsung BluRay player so basically I support both HD formats. I watch the movies on my Mitsubishi 1080p DLP HDTV. I don't buy most of the movies I watch as I rent about 90 percent of the titles on both formats from Netflix.

    Now if you've rented from Netflix before you'll agree with me that most of the discs that arrive at your address won't be in the best condition possible - scratches, smudges and actual cracked and damaged discs sometimes get through. This is the same with ny HD-DVD and BluRay rentals. At least 50 - 60 percent of these discs arrive with smudges and scratches.

    I have been fortunate though because just a simple cleaning with a lens cloth and solution does the job. All of the discs that have smudges or scratches have played all the way through without a hitch. I've had movies from different studios: Warner, Sony, Lionsgate and the new Disney releases. All of them have had no hiccups despite visible, sometimes extensive scratching. This is true for both BluRay and HD-DVD.

    All I can say is that I think this concern with scratching may be a bit overblown. The lasers in these new machines plus the new hard coating technology on the discs are doing their job.

    Just my 2 cents.

    if you all remember, DVD roms alone were like 700$ when they first came out..now they are like 50$...if you want to save money, give bluray some time, and you will see in a couple months or so,maybe years,they will drop in price. waiting is a good thing for me, it also gives time for them to work out the bugs.

    I'll wait and see what happens, like I said it could be like Beta, or it could be the next big thing since DVD.. I think it's much too early....
