    My wife just saw ads on TV for Tom & Jerry volumes 1 and 2 available for £7.99 each on VHS. I hate pouring money into a dying (dead?) format. I could import Tom and Jerry's Greatest Chases on DVD for circa £11.

    It's for my daughter (3 in May), my wife prefers to use VHS for it's pop in and play capability - less fiddling with items that are more easily damaged by little fingers and no hassle with menu navigation...

    So, her argument: the DVD is less convenient but more expensive.

    My side? Better quality (but my daughter won't spot that), longer lasting (but she'll be sick of it my the time a tape wears out). Ummm... Any pro-dvd suggestions?

    DVD's are not less convienient. But VHS is far from dead.
