DVD is, by some measurements, the greatest success in consumer electronics history. Following its 1997 debut, DVD took the format just a few years to completely conquer the home-video market previously ruled by VHS tapes.
Now that HD DVD is dead, Blu-ray is poised to take over as the consumer home-video format of choice. Blu-ray offers high-definition video and high-resolution audio, providing a superior viewing experience to DVD, although you need a modern home theater to take advantage of it. Usually we may regard that Blu-ray is superior then DVD all the way. However, once in a while we may need to convert Blu-ray to DVD just like cases below.
First of all, when you overdraft your account and have no balance outstanding to purchase new Blu-ray disc Player, then by converting Blu-ray to DVD disc, you can still take afterheat of your DVD Player.
Secondly, do not blindly believe in Blu-ray image is much clear than DVD's. Typically, the Bluray cost around double the figure for an ordinary DVD, while many have a recommended price of more than $30. However, a test found fewer than one in three Blu-ray films delivered an outstanding difference. The organisation's experts used two identical TVs to simultaneously watch Blu-ray and standard DVD versions of 17 films. Around half of the Blu-rays offered only a marginal improvement then DVD.
In particularly, when you sit before EDTV (480p) rather then HDTV (720p, 1080i, 1080p), again Blu-ray will just be downscaled to DVD level. It means that after converting Blu-ray to DVD with professtional Blu-ray to DVD Converter, you can not tell the difference before and after conversion. If fortunately you have a Blu-ray Player, as well as super-big HDTV, do you think 100% there is no need to convert BD to DVD? No. A useful Blu-ray burner is pretty costly. If you convert Blu-ray to AVCHD DVD, it can not only achieve 1080p full-HD quality, but also playable on majority of Blu-ray Player (Need a Free Blu-ray Player Software on your Computer?).
