Just out of interest, do you guys up at the top (100 plus) have much of a DVD collection? I only ask because I've become more involved with Blu-ray.com's forums over the past few weeks (been chatting to a few guys on twitter etc), and most of them don't really consider DVD, and never really did. I think its quite interesting, especially when we're talking 300 BD's plus. To me that seems really odd, but thats probably because I consider my DVD collection to be the base of my "whole" collection, and can't imagine owning most of the films I own on DVD on Blu-ray (guilty pleasures for example). To me Blu-rays are supplementary, yet I'm meeting an increasing number of people whose collection IS blu-rays and very few DVD's.

I'm the same as you. I consider Blu Rays as part of my DVD collection. If its available on Blu I'l buy it over a DVD every time but I'm not going to not get something I want just because it isn't on Blu Ray. Lots of straight to video films don't get a Blu release and I'm partial to a good bit of DTV action/horror. My collection is 1170 titles big along with Blu Rays and box sets counted as 1 each. Blu Ray is certainly my first choice but DVD has its merits. They have different features, covers and as such have different merits and interest.

I prefer to get a new release on Blu ray over DVD but if there is a significant price difference, then I will still by the DVD.

I guess because renting is cheaper, I get most Blu-rays from love film, as it's not as expensive if it turns out the film sucks.

I wouldn't even want to make a guess as to how many DVD's I own, maybe a 1000 or so. Nearly everything I am buying these days are BD (the occasional hard to get DVD or a movie that isn't available on BD I will pick up for the right price), I'm replacing some DVD's on the way but there is no way I will be replacing everything.
Comedies for example are not really worth the upgrade unless the DVD quality is really bad, sometimes the up-scaling of a DVD in my BD player can make the picture look even worse as it highlights the problem with the transfer. Basically it has to be worth it to go through with the upgrade and I do a fair bit of research before splashing out on them in particular.

Got the Rocky Saga and Speed but moved a few along.


@Adambatman82, While 223 is my BD collection I have 614 discs altogether so DVD is still the majority of my collection, TV series and the like add a lot. Also I find myself upgrading films from DVD to Blu more than buying new releases.I will always buy Blu now rather than DVD though.

I've got 800 odd DVDs, which is nowhere near what a lot of you guys have but it aint a bad collection
I've slowed right down on Blu Ray purchases now, between now and Chrimbo I'll probably pick up another 15 at most, there's not a lot I fancy or don't already have on DVD
Saying that I can't resist the collector's edition of Lost series' 1-6 that's out in a few weeks...

Same here. Pre-ordered Inception on Blu-Ray and getting a the player for Christmas. Then going to start buying new films on Blu Ray as I don't see the point of replacing all my DVD's with Blu Rays just yet.

I wasn't sure where else to ask this and perhaps someone can help me out? I've started listing my DVD collection as part of my EMPIRE profile (even though I cannot add a lot of the more obscure titles and stuff like TV and Animated Series box sets etc.) - anyhoo, d'you think that I should add BLU-RAYS here? Any Mods / Site Staff reading this, will we be able to add a BLU-RAY list as a separate function or do we just lump them all in the same category...?  My BLU-RAY collection is getting bigger and bigger.....

Iíd never replace everything as not everything warrants it. But I donít buy DVD anymore so all new releases are BD. And if itís a flat out classic that has been given the proper transfer it deserves than Iíll upgrade. Things like North by Northwest, Bladerunner and 2001 spring to mind, as catalogue titles that have had exceptional BD releases. And hopefully (fingers crossed!) Alien/Aliens next week. But we need standardised HD throughout every part of the release! SD content on the extras really getís on my nerves. 720 will do but HD as thatís what Iím paying for!

Must be up to about 70/80 BD now. But this Christmas is looking good so probably top 100 by the start of 2011.

I only own 16 Blu-Rays with a 17th on the way and i've owned a PS3 since January 2010.

Most of mine have been DVD upgrades. I rarely bought DVD's until they came down to £5 or less and i'm trying to stick with the same limit with my Blu Ray purchases.

I don't buy "new" DVD's and have not since getting a Blu-Ray player

I still buy 2nd hand DVD from exchange shops, last week I picked up 6 DVD's in mint condition (Million Dollar Baby, Enigma, Brokeback Mountain, etc. - all quality films) for just £5!

I guess my DVD collection (which excludes complete-series TV box sets of The Shield, Battlestar Galatica, The Wire, Sons of Anarchy, Dollhouse, Torchwood, etc.) has reached over 500+ titles

my HD Blu-Ray collection is 138 excluding TV Blu-Ray boxsets like Band of Brothers, The Pacific and Mad Men - with more titles on the way

I've found the best time to pick-up cheap new Blu-Rays is just after Christmas when the stores are desperate to shift copies - I was picking up classic films last year like Ghostbusters for £4!

I got my player Christmas 2009 but have since traded quite a few blu rays so the collection i currently have would be a lot bigger if i hadn't kept trading. It's something i do a lot with games and have managed to get some ver4y good trade in prices for movies that i wasn't crazy about. Blind buys etc.
