Blu Ray picture and sound is obviously better. But I don't think it's better enough to justify $30-$40 a pop for movies, and $200-$400 for a player.
I have the up-converter DVD player and HDMI output as well, and my movies are just fine. I only became interested in getting a Blu Ray player because WalMart had all 4 X-Men movies for $15 a pop, and were selling Blu Ray players as low as $88. I eventually ended up getting a used Blu Ray player from my brother for $60.
Always check Amazon.com for Blu-ray movies. They tend to be cheaper and always match other stores. I rarely go to Best Buy anymore.
