and i totally agree! i've spent over a decade already buying DVDs. i have a large SDVD collection which just about covers all my favorite genres - hitchcock, universal horror, hammer horror, film noir, 50's sci-fi, classic musicals, disney, technicolor films, classic tv, etc. there are still catalog titles being nicely restored & released... i've bought many titles in 2010 thus far. even so, i can see i am reaching my limit..... as much as i love hedy lamarr, early garbo & norma shearer titles, i cannot bring myself to buy from the warners archive unless there is a sale. and after such a loooonnng wait for the hayworth box set-my favorite actress- i can safely say that i own the majority of the catalog titles i'm interested in. okay almost-- there is that rumored harlow box set coming in 2011! on my new 50 inch 720p plasma tv and an upconverting dvd player, these dvds look excellent...much better than they did on my old crt tv. i purposely bought the lower resolution tv so my standard dvds will look sharper when upscaled. i made the leap to hdtv & this is the best tv set-up i've ever had. i know blu ray is the superior format and streaming content may be the future, but they are not for me.
