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.

What if nobody wins the high-definition DVD format wars? That increasingly looks to be the situation for the next-generation DVD technology, which is available to consumers in two incompatible formats.

A little more than 18 months after their introduction, the two systems ? Blu-ray, developed by Sony, and HD DVD, from Toshiba ? have sold around one million stand-alone players combined.
