    MASH box set - Improvements on original quality, no laugh track, a long-time favourite show.

    Stars Episode I - Amazing sound, pod race is spectacular!

    Tron - Great transfer, no jaggies!

    If it is:

    Mine was Disney's Tarzan CE - summer 2000 - a bit late in the game.

    L.A. Confidential and the first DVD version of The Exorcist. I actually bought both of these a month before I even had a player.

    Hi, Ross--welcome aboard. And I believe Ross meant this thread as an enthusiastic comment about getting his first DVDs. Right? I don't think this is a poll, per se.

    Anyhow, the best is yet to come, Ross!

    I bought the original release of Tron and from then on vowed to never buy VHS again, and all this was 7 months before I bought an actual player for it.

    The subject line is a bit misleading. Thought you were discussing the 1st DVD's on the market since "What Was Your 1st DVD" threads have been done to death already!

    The first DVDs I bought were Gladiator, Seven, The Mummy, and A Clockwork Orange. I got them because my sister had got a PS2 for Christmas in 2000. I used money and gift certificates to buy them a couple days after Christmas that year. Even with the PS2, I noticed a huge and better difference with DVD over VHS. When I got a real DVD player this past September, I noticed an even better change. I'll never go back to VHS. I only watch the Star Wars original trilogy on VHS. I never really got into laserdisc, so I don't have the laserdiscs.

    I bought The Abyss, "Weird Al" Yankovic: The Videos, and Vegas Vacation first.

    Vacation is OK, but the fact it's not letterboxed is a downer. It originally surprised me because I thought all DVD's were correctly shown in their aspect ratios on DVD.

    Ha.

    My first was an Imax title about Rain Forests. Nothing else was out back in April 97.
