    just one question if you chose that last option, why the hell are you using a computer??!!

    EDIT:The poll is about which one you think is the best, not which one you use more often

    What are we voting on?

    Which one we use?
    Which one is best?

    A Poll question which actually has a question in it would be VERY useful.

    This is pretty easy.
    VHS is dead.
    HDDVD is dead.
    Blu-ray is dying - and I do not care.
    DVD is cheap, popular and has LOTS of uses.
    Someday SOMETHING will replace DVD, but I do not think it will be BD.

    Well, DVD. I don't need OMG HI DEF LOL and I have a regular ol' standard-def TV. What benefit would I have by getting something hi-def if it's not going to even matter without the proper television?

    I watch HD content on my computer from time to time but other then that I am leaning towards voting "I reject all forms of technology as it is a spawn of Satan" As I see no proper question.

    Ummm just because sales are going up does not mean much. Blu-Ray will never get as big as DVD was before its replaced. And DVD's are still doing well, even after Blu-ray has been out for a while. Chances are the people buying Blu-ray do not have a stand alone Blu-ray player and are using the PS3 which is the only reason they are buying them.
