While I won't comment on the HD format battle as a whole like Neil has (very adequately) done, I will say this: DVD quality looks like absolute crap on a large high-definition television. That's why
these high-definition formats were created — big televisions simply need the larger image to avoid a blurry look.
If you look at life from a purely functional perspective then maybe the significantly worse quality isn't an issue. If you strive for the most luxurious home cinema experience like I do, there's no other option.
