Heh we were discussing this at work just a couple hours ago.

They have more memory capacity than the HD-DVD's but I think they're a little more expensive to produce. Eventually I'm sure like all electronics they'll start getting cheaper to produce and become more affordable. I can wait. I'm in no hurry to buy one. My standard DVD player works for me. \:\)

Ok on to my dumb question. The Blu-Ray discs are about 25 GB right? Does that I can put 25 GB of movie files on one disc or is it still going to be about 2+ hours of video that the disc can contain? If a disc could contain 25 GB of video I would be impressed.

I remember reading on Wikipedia that a dual layer blu-ray disc could hold about 9 hours of HD video or about 23 hours of standard definition video. And obviously, this can change depending on how (or even if) it's compressed.
