I was shocked today to discover that Big W has Blu-ray movies going for $18.77 each. And not all just B-grade crap either – you can grab Batman Begins, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Blade Runner for that price.

But what price is the sweet spot? Blu-rays discs are never going to be as cheap as DVDs (until DVD doesn’t exist any more, I guess), but at what point does buying an HD version make more sense financially than just picking up a boring old SD version? I reckon that $18.77 is getting pretty damned close, but then again, I’ve started buying everything on Blu-ray anyway.

So, what price is cheap enough for you to pick up Blu-ray exclusively?
