Head-to-Head Comparison Blu-ray Vs. HD DVD Titles

 |  |  August 1, 2006

Hi-Def Digest has posted the first head-to-head reviews of three movies recently released in both Blu-Ray and HD DVD formats. While none of the three cross-platform titles is really deserving of the high-definition treatment, at least the comparison gives us some sens of the two formats in an apples-to-apples test.

HD DVD vs Blu Ray Head To HeadThe overall winner was HD DVD in all three tests. HD DVD generally exhibited better detail and audio, while Blu-Ray had some problems with image cropping, muddy picture and compression artifacts. That said, these problems could be specific to the 1st generation players out there, but given the huge price difference between Blu-Ray and HD DVD, I’d say the early winner (if there is one) is HD DVD.
