I've noticed many of HTF's members were also laserphiles and I often see a remark or two where a poster expresses regret at selling off his laser at an anticipation of a DVD release that never materialized or was inferior to its laser disc incarnation. I, myself, have upgraded to DVD from most of my lasers but I never ever let them go out of my hands until the DVD version has actually been released. I won't sell/trade them off at an announcement even if a release date is given, anything can happen. Thus I can still enjoy my lasers of The Alamo extended roadshow cut still not available on DVD or Star! with it's intermission and entr'acte music in tact unlike the DVD, 1776's extended cut etc. among several others not to mention gems like the Ernst Lubitsch box set, John Ford's underrated swan song 7 Women in wide screen, the 1973 Lost Horizon Pioneer special edition, Gance's restored Napoleon and others which may take years to find their way to DVD. I love my DVDs but viva la laser discs!
