Movie Tech Decision

I have a combination DVD/VHS recorder, but I don't know which I like better. Let's try a little pro-con analysis.

dvd.jpg VS. vhs.jpg

DVD Pros
1. Digital
2. Neat menus
3. Will not break
4. Does not need rewound
5. Sound capabilities
6. Extra features
7. Easy storage

DVD Cons
1. Scratch very easily
2. Loading time
3. Expensive

VHS Pros
1. Inexpensive
2. Old movies are usually in this format
3. No loading time
4. My rewinder doesn't feel obsolete.

VHS Cons
1. Can break
2. Crackly sound, if old
3. Cabinet space sucking

While I love DVDs, VHS are more cost effective. DVD to rent, VHS to buy. My home entertainment quandary is solved.

I love dvd's because of the "extra features" which are included, plus there are no previews at the beginning of each cd like vhs used to have. I also love vhs tapes because I have hundreds of them and it seems to me that they last forever. Since I bought the FRIENDS collection on dvd's, I have had problems with at least one cd out of each season. Whoever invented the vhs must have made billions of dollars... but now I feel bad since dvd's took over our society. I love the dvd/vhs combo because I never have to get rid of my old vhs tapes.

Nice entry Amanda to talk about!

Um, glad we didn't have this conversation when I was at your house. Or when you were at mine. Remember that I don't know how to work DVD players in my own house. I prefer VHS although I still can't program the VCR to tape anything *argh* I'll just let best friend Amanda do it--she's better at it, anyway :^D

Next time you come over, Karissa, we'll have a training course. Or when I go to your house.

The nasty thing about DVD players and VHS recorders is that they are all different. I didn't know how to tape on mine until last summer when I really liked Jennifer Lopez in "The Wedding Planner". That's right. I am so ashamed. I learned something new to watch her.
