So you are saying VC-1 is superior to AVC? Please show me where this is true, because I look at PoTC and those movies look amazing, and then I look at House of 1000 Corpses and it looks amazing also... so... what is the problem? Or are you just regurgitating what Amir says?

AVC ( due to filtering in the compression) has a softer look and appearance then VC-1.

But he isn't just trying to throw some facts out, otherwise he wouldn't have called it a "in depth analysis".

I've seen POTC. It looks more blurry than other movies like King Kong (vc-1 I believe).

In King Kong, the clarity just jumps out at you.,

Why? If HD-DVD goes down the crapper, why waste an extra $100 on the combo drive? It's not like I'm going to buy it when it first comes out, it'll be later this year when I get the opportunity. I'd like to see other people's impressions on it first.

Also combo drives might not have much support (in terms of upgrading the blu-ray **** that is... to 2.0)

Seriously I can't see how I was. At first I was pointing out that he left out some of the numbers on the websites he used (and I expected he'd not want to miss this since it's an "indepth analysis") and secondly I just pointed that I wouldn't consider this an indepth analysis, even added in a smiley so I couldn't be misunderstood. Well apparently I could anyway. I guess I may never know what exactly pulls your triggers..
