    Anyone check out the Transformers HD-DVD? I got to take a look last night. Did not see it in theaters this Summer.

    What a fun movie. Much better than I expected. The HD-DVD looks fantastic. Sound and picture both very good.

    I enjoyed at the theater. And will probably rent the DVD. At points, the plot seemed thin to me. But, I was very impressed with the visual effects & the audio mix.

    I hope there is a Pt 2.

    BTW, any good bonus material on this disc?

    I agree Chris it was a great movie.

    I watched it in the movies in July and had to see it again so I watched the HD DVD version on my HD add on for my Xbox 360 and it looked great. The audio was even better.

    I got both of them to work. It gave me an error the first time. I had to redo the net setup, then it downloaded both.

    Awesome HD DVD, can't wait for Full Metal Jacket to get here. I took the Mummy and T3 for my two in store free movies from BB

    The first thing I did when I setup the A2 was to download the 2.5 firmware. It adds an enhanced RGB output option

    Of course! I had my HD-DVD player the first weekend they were released. Been using quite a bit for both HD and SD. The SD upconversion capability of the A1 is quite good.

    I also have a PS3 for Blu-Ray but I don't use it nearly as often. My personal collection is pretty much 75% HD-DVD, 25% Blu-Ray. Not because I'm biased, but just because the selection of movies I like are on HD-DVD.

    My Wife and I really enjoyed it. It was even better on HD (but makes me wish we had a larger TV - 42" with HD DVDs and blu-ray just isn't cutting it anymore!)

    Excellent PQ, and the best Michael Bay movie I've seen so far.

    btw, for those who don't know the new Ironman trailer is at the very end of the movie, after the credits.

    Got my copy a few days ago. Now I just need to find the time to watch it. The Jazz season starts tonight so my nights will fill up quickly watching them. :)

    I just got the HD-DVD on Friday and watched it. It looked great and was a really fun movie. Much better than I thought it would be. I've already watched it again with the special features enabled that show the PIP.
