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.
