  1. Thousands of DVDs have been released since the format first debuted in 1997. By the time of this writing, several movies have even been released on DVD multiple times. Because of this, you may be wondering which DVDs are the best. The best DVDs can be determined in many ways.

    One of the easiest ways to distinguish the best DVDs is by reading reviews. You can search for a DVD on a search engine like Google or Bing or by visiting a DVD review site such as DVD Talk or The Digital Bits. You should not refer to customer reviews on an online retail store, due to the fact that these articles are not written by qualified reviewers who are certain as to what makes the best DVDs.

    You can also tell if a DVD of a movie or TV show is made at the optimum quality by checking the specifications and physical attributes of the disc. The best DVDs are presented in anamorphic widescreen from a high-definition source, which will usually be noted in the product details on the DVD case or on the actual disc itself.

    Also, the best quality DVDs are those that are pressed as dual-layer, which allows twice the amount of information as a standard DVD. Because DVD video is presented as a compressed digital file, a larger file size will allow for the highest quality image. You can check if a DVD is dual-layer by looking at the bottom reflective part of the disc to see if it is colored gold. Discs that are silver on the reflective side are single layer, which means it only could hold half the amount of information, resulting in a lower video quality.

    It is also important to note that Blu-ray discs offer much higher quality than standard DVDs, mostly due to the fact that the video is encoded in high-definition. Because Blu-ray high-definition video contains over twice the resolution as a standard definition DVD video, the picture quality will be much sharper and more detailed.
