Q: When you say your recommendation of HD DVD comes down to three things and list the three, I think you could actually distill it down to just No. 3. Your first reason, "Picture and sound quality is identical between formats," doesn't favor one over the other. No. 2, the lack of support for Blu-ray features in most current players, is also a non-issue unless you can tell me that HD DVD currently has features unavailable in any Blu-ray player. So, if I follow you correctly, the only advantage to HD DVD is lower initial cost, if one discounts the higher capacity and potential of Blu-ray discs. I read your print article and came to your blog in doing my own research to try to find the better unit/format, but was disappointed by what appears to be a personal dislike for Sony.
