Are dvd's a wast of money?

Are dvds a wast of money ?? Yes they are cheap but 99% off the time they are on the book shelf.

No dvds are not a waste of money. If get a dvd I end up not liking I just sell it again to get rid of it.

I like knowing that I have all the films I enjoyed just waiting on my own shelves if I ever decide to watch one of them again, or show someone else the film. Also I watch lots of single scenes over and over from a lot of my dvds.

we can say that it is wasteful to buy DVDs...In today's scenario internet provides the facility to watch as well as to download the latest movies as you need.......internet removes the problem of purchasing the DVDs....
So purchase the DVDs only after watching it on the internet....

I ussually dont go out and blindly buy dvd's. All the Dvd's I own are either anime, or movie classics that I MUST own.

I'll say it now and for you future KMCers will prove me wrong.....

Blu-ray or any other format is a waste of money.

DVD FTW!

DVD is today's Beta, while Blue ray/HD DVD is more like VHS. But technology has improve a lot since then. I only buy movies that I like, so no it's not a waste of money.

That's a bad analogy if I ever heard one.

DVD is selling tremendously and has no signs of stopping for a while. Blu Ray is just a treat for those who can afford it.

That is exactly what I said to my mates when we were talking about it the other day.

I'll say no..because if your happy with what your spending for then go for it...but if you don't have much money think twice or thrice before buying it.

I used to be into buying dvds, but now I only buy a dvd if I absolutely have to have that movie because it blew me away. I only buy like maybe two a year. I came to a realization one time that it is a waste of money to buy dvds since there are retal stores everywhere that have larger collections of dvds than I'll ever have, and I can go and rent any one them for a small price rather than buying them.

It depends what the DVD is. Some are way overpriced even I wouldn't buy them, even if it were a film I have already seen. I do admit to watching some movies on the net before I decide to buy. I don't see a problem with that provided of course that anything downloaded is deleted after watching.
I bought a few films after watching them on the net, having not seem them, and not willing to buy them without knowing the plot etc, I watched them and I think I bought two of the three I watched.
Over here though DVD's can be as much as $40 which to me is a rip off as it probably only costs half as much to burn the movie on the disk and stick it in that case thing. They really make a profit...
It also depends which store you shop at. Some stores sell DVD's at a price higher than other stores such as Kmart or Target, they are the places to check first, leave the franchise stores alone until there is nowhere else to go.

I never planned to own a video store. That's crazy. I don't like that many movies.

However, when you do the math, you'd find out at what point your collection becomes worth it. I bought Radio the other day for $5. That's close to a rental at Blockbuster already. When I watch it again, it'll already be worth the price.

It's cheaper to buy the dvd than go into town to rent it for me... It would cost me about 8 to go into town and rent a movie, then go back into town to take it back, so 12 say... I might as well buy the film on dvd. I can usually find most new films on dvd for 8, free postage.

So renting like that IS a waste of money for me. That's why I rent from online for most films, and if I end up really liking the film, I buy it.

8 from taking a bus? In that case, it's much more worth it to have it handy on you.

Yep. Cheaper for me to buy new releases instead of going to rent a new release in town.

In a way, it probably IS a waste of money, but like many other DVD buyers, I like to think of my DVD collection as a sort of statement. I don't buy DVDs JUST because I think I'll watch them so often that it makes better financial sense than renting; I buy some DVDs because I believe that adding them to my collection somehow gives a more complete picture of my tastes, and who I am as a person.

Weird, I know... but I guess it's what happens when you combine the rampant consumerism of Americans with an inner need for expression through appreciation of art.
