If most of your friends have chosen a particular format, guess what? They’ve chosen the format for you too, and you hadn’t even realized it yet!
Get the same HD format that your friends have. It’s as simple as that! Your friends probably like the same kinds of things that you like — that’s how you probably became friends in the first place, isn’t it? It follows that your friends share your taste in entertainment, and being the good friends they are, I bet you’ve already borrowed movies from each other now and then. Do the logical and practical thing, and extend this into your HD choice!
You’ll live happily ever after, loaning movies to each other, recommending titles, exchanging tips about products and technologies, and on and on. It’ll even bring you closer together. (Or further apart if you insist on bragging that their movies are better on your home theater system).
Next up, are your family members, your acquaintances, and associates at work, school or whatever organization(s) you’re involved with. These people come into your life—not entirely by your own choosing—however they’re there and their selection of movies is something you can probably freely borrow from (that one was for the Grammar Natzees in ‘da house!).
In short, don’t sit on the Hi-Def fence when you don’t have to. The format war has barely even started, and it’s not likely to be decisively won or lost any time in the next 12 or 24 months. By continuing to “sit on the fence,” you’re missing out on a lot of good content for your home theater investment. If you’ve already got friends, family, or associates to trade with, then you’re definitely not coming out ahead by waiting and waiting.
