, but because best buy will stop selling SD tvs means it the end of SD *gasp*. Are you serious here, are you using best buy as an argument? The average size of average Joe's television is ~32 inches, if you can tell the difference between an upconverted dvd and HDM from average viewing distance of 7' on this size set, I will laugh in your face. So until this average tv size starts increasing(which it currently is), HD sets have more than 25% of the market and the prices of HDM are at the prices of current dvds, only then will we see a large shift in the market. Business Economics 101. Until then we will be lucky if by the end of 2008 that dvd to HDM sales are better than 95:1. Learn and post some facts, maybe then will people in this thread respond to your posts seriously. If not keep posting, either way you are making this a hilarious thread.
In five years, there will be very few SD tv's. Moreover, if you have a good television you can definitely tell the difference between HD video and upconverted DVD. To deny it tells me your complete and utter ignorance. The average Joe, yourself obviously, felt the same way about DVD when it first came out. Guess what, VHS is essentially dead. The same will be the fate of DVD. Not now or anytime soon. However, if you are the least bit saavy, you will realize that DVD's will be retired as the medium of choice for most people in some years time....my opinion is five years (Are you happy now Imbroglio).
