Standard DVD or HD? Most Buyers Are Sitting It Out.


According to a recent article in the New York Times, the majority of buyers are simply sitting it out when it comes to the HD format war. 18 months downstream, there's very little to show which side, if any has a lead over the other, but more importantly, that buyers in general are sticking with DVD for now.
