Man! VHS was around for so long, I remember my parents having TONS of movies. Then DVD’s came along and everyone slowly started switching over to them. Luckily it happened about the time I was first married so as we were building our movie collection we started buying DVD’s. And who knows why, but at that time I also bought some VHS’s because they were so cheap!
Now, Blue-Ray is out…… and we’re supposed to switch to that? DVD’s haven’t been around all that long- well at least not as long as VHS was. I still haven’t replaced all of my VHS with DVD’s.
I am pretty excited that they are doing the blue-ray/dvd combos. That’s smart! Especially since people have dvd players in their cars and aren’t likely to replace and upgrade those to blue-ray.
So I am now the owner of 3 generations of movie technology in my home! And the funniest part? The only VHS player we have is in my daughter’s room. And we don’t own a Blue-ray! I don’t know why I’m hanging on to some of the VHS movies still, I think it’s just so I know which ones I need to buy in DVD or blue-ray format still. Something that will probably change when we move!
