Re: Blu-Ray...worth the fuss?
I have seen Blu ray in multiple locations and I think the size of the benefit directly relates to the size of your screen.
I have a PS# feeding into an HDMI switcher that enables me to feed signal to multiple displays.
On a 24" Dell monitor the Blu Ray looks good close up, but at normal room viewing distances it's of dubious benefit
On my sons 32' LCD screen it's slightly improved towards Blu ray, but still not a a huge difference. he certainly does not care.
On our 120" projection setup in 1080p it's no contest
If you are at 50" and beyond you'll see a huge difference at normal viewing distances (not pixel peeping with your face 12" from the screen), under 50' it's an upgrade but not critical.
