Just wondering if people still buy DVDs anymore. I personally think they're still decent if you have a bedroom TV. However with Blu Rays and even 4k taking over (even digital!) where is the room for DVDs nowadays?

I don't all mkv now, stored on hard drives for instant access

I wouldn't buy any optical media anymore, but DVD/Bluray will exist as long as people have poor internet connections or no internet at all. Plus a lot of people might still collect special editions etc and prefer to have a physical copy.

The sound and picture quality of a Blu Ray disk is generally far superior to any streamed content. That's why some of us still buy the disks.

My mum does because she's stupid lol. I keep telling her to use my Netflix etc but she says she likes to watch them more than once.. Bless her!

I still buy optical formats of movies that are near-impossible to obtain via legal streaming (this usually means off-the-radar 10+ years old titles) or recent releases that I know I will want to view multiple times, and the latter is v few and would be BR not DVD.
#6
Not yet but I would buy blu-ray over dvd if available. If you have a large collection of dvd's it would be worth while buying a new dvd player and keeping it in it's box for future use. :)

This probably should have gone to misc, mods if you will? :)

DVDs aren't done yet when you can still buy TVs that are not hd. It was the same when the Xbox one and ps4 was released there were still lots of people that wanted physical media rather then online. It's interesting when you look at music as vinyl and even cassette tapes are now making a come back. There are still parts of uk that couldn't stream the likes on Netflix.

my opinion
streamer box can be used with non smart tv to connect to your server so cant see the need for dvd in any room

amazed that cassettes are coming back poor quality and no decent cover art why would anyone want that ????????

Don't need to worry about hoarding a device to play DVD until BR players start to become end of life. Heck, it was only recently that the last manufactuer of VHS players retired the product - 40 years after its introduction.

Agreed, can't beat it.

Many hobbyists buy DVD's such as steam buffs and there's no shortage of folk buying pirate DVD's at markets

More DVDs on the shelves at ASDA and other stores than blurays. Looks like it's here to stay for a bit longer yet :)

Streaming is alright but you can't beat the HD audio offered by bluray

I always buy animated films on DVD for the kids. I'm still old school too - prefer to be able to hold in my hand what I buy (DVD, cd, book) rather than just streaming or downloading digital stuff
#15
just bought the family guy Blu-ray for £1.75 can't be bad?
#16
They said that about vinyl records.....
#17
not brought a dvd in years. possibly since bluray came out. I possibly have a few hundred and I bet 20% are sealed that I brought on offer.
I'd say it's dead. How many teenagers buy cd's now. Vinyl is different so I'm told. I'm now led to believe that vinyl has a better quality sound than cd.. although we were told the opposite when cd came out.. So the quality issue won't apply with dvd vs bluray..

Where are you shopping that you can buy TVs that aren't HD? Even 720p has been standard for new TVs for over a decade.

Hd ready but no HD tuner built in I guess.

I make wedding and concert videos and I'm constantly pushing my clients to have Bluray but they always ask for DVD. I give my wedding clients a copy on both formats and I always get asked what Bluray is.......your average Joe Bloggs is clueless oO
The irony is I often get asked if my cameras are high definition *facepalm*.......
