Pioneer BCS-717 414 313 and 212 Blu-ray Cinema Systems Make you want to Adopt

While Blu-ray has been out for quite a while now, we're still seeing businesses across the board continue to release videos on both the newest high quality medium AND the slightly older and lower quality plain ol' DVD format.
