I'm just wondering why is that some downloads are in Blu ray 720p. Isn't blu ray supposed to be in 1080p and also why is that the same bluray files are in different sizes yet they're still bluray e.g one is 8gb whereas another is 10+Gb. So my question is that which one is the one to go for, is bigger better and is does bigger always mean better quality?

I think Blu-Ray means anything in 720p or 1080p resolution. As for the different sizes, I think that just depends on the encoding process after the film is copied into a file and on the length of the film - something over 2 hours is going to have a bigger file size than a 90 minute film.
I always try to download files of the smallest size possible to save space, but bigger doesn't always mean better quality. I don't mind sacrificing 1080p HD for 720p if I can find the latter in a reasonable size.
