I bought a laserdisc player about three years ago (talk about getting in on the end of something!) mainly for the awesome MGM/Warner Brothers animation box sets. Now I know that laserdisc is quite different from DVD, and I know about laser rot. My question is, just buy watching them a lot, can laserdiscs deteriorate like VHS? I mean, it is analog, right? Since it is pretty much a dead format and most titles are out of print, I handle my laserdiscs like they are precious artifacts! I'm extremely scared of ruining them, and almost scared to watch them.
