    Has anyone still got this?

    I remember the days when this was cool, and then DVD's came into the image.

    God, my father still has one from 6 years ago, and it works, I watched a movie on it today! It's awesome! :p

    Yes, we still have one at home. Have tons of cartoons and other movies, but I hardly ever watch them anymore.
    We got some special cartoons that were recorded and they hold soo many memories, but I'm kind of worried that they won't work if I watch them. I remember the quality was pretty poor the last time I tried. :-/

    It's not that old. ;) They do still make the things, even if they aren't as popular as DVD now. I guess new movies probably don't get released on VHS any more, but movies on VHS can still be found in a lot of stores.

    The real question is "does anyone still have a Betamax?"

    Haha. My aunt used to own a betamax rental store.

    Five years ago, our room was walled with VHS (you cannot see the real wall anymore). Then we decided to just start with a DVD collection. We sold the hundreds of vhs we owned for a bargain price. I kept some for sentimental reasons. :lol: We don't even have a vhs player anymore. So now our wall is lined with DVDs. I hope I won't need to sell them in the near future.

    Betamax and VHS were rivals for the tape industry, just like HD DVD and Blu-Ray were competeing to be the champion High def disc of this generation. Just like Blu-ray owned HD-DVD, VHS owned Betamax.
