Bluray – well worth it

I’ve finally weakened and bought a Bluray player. It’s a Panasonic BD-EP35 and seemed a good price with some excellent reviews.

We watched the Mummy parts 1 and 2 last night and all I can say is WOW…

The detail and clarity are staggering and it reminded me of the first time I saw a DVD and compared it to video cassette – a major jump in quality that made the expense all seem worthwhile.

It does a pretty good job of playing standard DVDs too – the upscaling works well, giving better definition even on older discs such as John Carpenter’s ‘Vampires’.

Tonight we’ll be watching the latest Batman film – ‘Dark Knight’ – which is supposed to be excellent no matter what format you watch it on.
