Blu-ray versus DVD
The best Blu-ray films looked simply outstanding, but only five out of the 17 discs we watched were of the highest high-definition quality we were expecting. Some of the other Blu-ray discs came close, but several proved disappointing and a handful virtually no better than DVD.
The results fell into one of three distinct groups:
- Blu-ray was significantly better than the DVD and boasts the best full-HD picture quality
- Blu-ray was significantly better than the DVD, but not outstanding. DVD quality was usually disappointing
- Blu-ray was marginally better than DVD but not outstanding. In some cases it offers virtually no improvement
