Did you have one when you were growing up?

When did you change to DVD?

Or do you still have a VCR now?

Yes, we had one.

Honestly, I can't remember when we switched over to DVD. I know we waited a few years after they came out. I wasn't gun-ho about the DVDs because 1) they're more fragile than a VHS tape so I'm leary about loaning them out and more worried about them with the kids and 2) I liked that you could stop a VHS and it would save your spot if you turned the tv and vcr off.

The upside of a DVD is that they don't have to be rewinded (hated making sure all our rentals were rewound).

We still have a DVD/VHS combo in the bedroom and we got that to tape things off of the tv pre-Tivo/DVR-days.

We had a VCR right up to and after I left home. I got a DVD player maybe 18 months to 2 years in. The DVDs were very expensive back then, around 20 apiece, whereas now they're 8-15 depending how new they are and you can sometimes get them cheaper in sales.

I sort of miss VCRs and video rentals!!

When did you change to DVD? hmm I think it was after I moved out like 2000 or 2001?

Or do you still have a VCR now? no
