I just spotted Alan’s pm…I got back at 4 AM today from a nice, little respite in Aruba. Anyway, I’m kinda tired. Yeah, I can hear the sympathetic awwwh as I type…
Great feedback so far. Kerry pretty much picked my brain.
Nicely said Kerry.
A difference of opinion here though…
While I don’t relish the thought of small annual “upgrade” fees, this wouldn’t stop me from purchasing software that fits my needs.
I guess I’d want it all though…easy to configure software yet still allow me to manipulate files as I see fit . I’d also like to see some easy 1 or 2-click bkup options when I’m not in the mood to tinker. Probably my old age setting in since this parallels my thoughts as to why I prefer an easy, retail app that will do-it-all as opposed to the freeware apps. I don’t want to sound like I’m disrespecting freeware here, I’m really just saying I’ve become increasingly lazy.
A few months back, I didn’t give BR much thought. My 22 yo old just picked up a PS3 and a new samsung HDTV. Boy, I’ll tell ya, it didn’t take me long to become a believer. I’m becoming spoiled at an alarming rate. Honestly, until my son actually put BR in my face, I wouldn’t have seriously considered it. When he moves, it’s gonna be hard to give it up.
I also think Kipper is right on the mark when he said that prices are coming down, both for commercial releases but particularly for blank media. I haven’t really looked into burners, but I suspect these are becoming more afforadble and prices will continue to improve for the consumer.
I afraid I caught the bug and I really don’t think I can turn back.
