    Icon4 dvds vs videos

    Which do you prefer?

    Dvds are good, but I have a hunch videos are gonna come storming back any day now.

    If this thread generates some worthwhile debate I might go ahead with a cassettes vs cds follow-up.

    dvd's for sure. all the special features and that, cant go wrong.
    plus dvd's are truckloads cheaper to make i dont think we will see the return of vhs. you can still get some beta, but they arent coming back in a hurry either...

    Interesting...

    I wasn't expecting it to be quite so one-sided.

    Videos are just that step ahead at the moment cause of the price it costs for those dvd recorders IMO

    whats the advantage of VHS though, u can get dvd's for under 10 bucks. when where tapes ever that cheap. its cause making dvd's costs about 2c for the disk and takes half a second to put the information on the disk. with tapes they have to actually put the movie onto it which takes a lot longer, hence costing more money...
