With the announcement of D-VHS i am feeling a little concerned about continuing my DVD collection. I currently have aprox. 200 dvd's. That is a considerable monetary investment. I know many of you have collections that seriously dwarf mine. As time goes on more and more of us will be buying HDTV's. HD-DVD is only a few years away, if that. Why should i contiue to buy all the new titles that come out, when eventually the studios will be re-releasing these titles in HD-DVD? There is no way that i will adopting D-VHS. It totally negates what makes DVD so cool. Random access, and all the cool extras. Collecting only the more obscure titles and passing on the big name releases seems the more logical course, given that many of these lesser known titles will most likely not be released on HD-DVD. I realize that the studios have a considerable amount of money invested in the current dvd market. They aren't just going to dump the current format for a superior one. My concern is that if i am going to buy a movie, i want the best version available. I have been burned a few times by buying one version of a movie only to have a SE come out a few months later. I have learned my lesson on that one. Do your homework, and be patient. Another growing concern of mine is DVD rot. This seems to be less of a rumor, and more of a legitimate phenomenon. When a DVD that played fine a year ago will not play on multiple different players, something is seriously wrong. I doubt that the studios will offer to replace these dvd's if rot becomes a more of a prominent issue. Many of us may wind up with a few hundred 120mm frisbees. We all want to spend our money wisely. What do we do?
