BD has won the BATTLE and THE WAR BY NOW

SONY,PANASONIC,HITACHI,DENON, SHARP---all will deliver best BD players just like their other products

ASUS,SONY,SAMSUNG,LITE ON will all deliver best BD roms within 6 months

I like competition, especially when it helps the consumers, to get the best product, with the best quality and price...

but this is getting an obsseion for people. Come leave it alone bleeding at the ground. We shall win sooner or later
