Not for me (yet anyway). Best case scenario (cheapest online disks on sale, figure 4$), you are paying twice as much for blue ray as for hard drive space. Worst case scenario (bestbuy, office depot etc, every day low price of 20$ a disks) its 10 times the price of hard drive space.
I think I'll go with hard drive space.
I did finally jump on the wagon for a reader, but only because I got a combo drive that reads hd-dvd and blueray. I figure I can rent blueray and buy cheap hd-dvd on clearance. I wouldn't have been willing to buy one yet without the hd-dvd abilities added in.
I'm kind of curious for those that do have blue ray burners, how many disks have you actually burned? More that what was in the first pack you got?
One of the first two movies that I rented wouldn't play at full res. due to copy protection (updated cyberlink software and it didn't help). Thats one of the big reasons I wasn't willing to spend a lot on blueray (too many copy protection headaches, just play the damn movie!!!).
