Well dvd's have been around for 13 years almost going on 14, Blu-rays for 4-5 years. I remember back when you couldn't buy a DVD player for under 200 bucks, now they from that at you for 30, I expect the same will happen slowly with Blu-Ray's. The more you produce the cheaper they become.

I quite agree with you neutron. My first VHS was over 500, and now you can't get them anymore, I suppose DVD players will eventually go the same way and in turn the blue-rays.
What will we be having then I wonder?

I remember when VCRs became available to the public. JC Penney had two brands to sell, both were top loading. They had the Sony BetaMax for $1250, and an RCA VHS for $1000. A friend of mine bought the RCA. With the purchase, he could pick two movies from a list, and receive them in the mail. He chose M.A.S.H. and Vanishing Point. We wore those movies out watching them over and over. There were no movie rental stores back then, and the movies were $80-$90 each, to buy them. So, we watched them over and over. BetaMax actually had better sound and picture, but VHS eventually won out because the blank tapes had longer recording times. How times have changed.........

Technology is the first thing to get dated there is no question about it, the only way you get your money back on it is if it's rare and becomes a collectors item, but if we would be put of buying because of that fact we'd still be using the steam engine.
