I have video taped in hi-def mode, editied with Roxio, played on my HDTV (1080i) using an "up-scalling" DVD player, and have generally been pleased with the quality. Over the years, I've kept my eyes on Blu-ray and watched the prices for burners and players come down dramatically. Each is now around $150 and media is getting cheaper. So, the question is, not having seen any home-produced Blu-ray projects, is there much of an improvement in playback quality over high definition that would warrant the added cost. I realize this is somewhat of a subjective question, but I am curious as to what others have experienced.
