Better question, where do you keep all of the stuff you own .

Re: How Many Blu-ray / HD DVD Movies Do You Own?

DVDProfiler says:

958 Blu-rays
12 HD-DVDs
1698 DVDs

This count is slightly off, because I do have some things still duplicated on DVD/HD-DVD, but remove them from the database if they've been upgraded to blu.

In my office. I've got floor-to-ceiling shelving on all four walls. Still have quite a bit of empty space left to fill as well!

Over 2000.

Just added 7 or so today from a thrift shop for prices ranging from .99 to 1.91. Also my collection is way bigger than it should be since I blind bought a few hundred when blockbuster closed.

Crazy enough, it took me just over a year to hit 1,000. My 1,000th blu ray was Avengers: Age of Ultron steelbook. Now I just need to find a little more time watching them

If I could go back and change anything, it would be the first couple years of building up my collection when Blockbuster was running those ridiculous sales where you could get 4 or 5 movies for $20, and again during their going out of business sales where movies were only a buck or two each. I swear between those sales and the Best Buy trade and save, that is where almost half of my collection came from. So realistically I could probably trim my collection about 10% and be perfectly fine with where I'm at.

DVDS - used to have 3000, paired it down to 1000.
HD DVDs - had 250 and paired it down to 50.
BLU-RAYS - about 2000+ at present

By the time 2017 ends, I hope to be close to 300 DVDs; the movies I had hoped to find include "Black Hawk Down" and "Xanadu" among others.

Re: How Many Blu-ray / HD DVD Movies Do You Own?

Interesting thread to bump. In 2015 I claimed to have about 450. I'm still right there. I've been diligent about cleaning out the old crap off the shelf to make room for the new stuff. In fact I have another 4 BR and 2 DVD's on my desk right now which I have to get over to the library for a donation.

Re: How Many Blu-ray / HD DVD Movies Do You Own?

I'm in the 2500+ range, but I've started to sell off a lot of older stuff as well as buying much more slowly now. And my UHD is in the 40's range.

Re: How Many Blu-ray / HD DVD Movies Do You Own?

According to Collectorz, I currently own 1502 Blu-ray discs. I was wondering when it would become hard to find titles I want. Realistically, if you figure about 100 years of cinema, my collection has an average of 15 titles for each year. I think I will soon hit a wall before about 2000. There simply hasn't been that many great films released in the lifetime of cinema. And thankfully, since I have no desire to collect that new format, I won't be re-purchasing most of what's in my collection. Other than new releases, it will be hard to find worthwhile titles to purchase. That's why when I see these guys who claim to have collections 2 or 3 times as large, I scratch my head. You gotta dig pretty deep into the muck to own that many titles and it then becomes a game of owning anything that is released (or escapes).

If I were to make a guess I'd say it breaks down to be around 600 blu's and 1400 dvd's. But that number is getting more even every day.

Since September 2014 I've gone from 2027 to 2432, which in itself is a little misleading because it doesn't account for the 200 or more dvd's I've traded in to the local record shop after purchasing the same title on blu ray.

15 films for every year of film sounds like a lot, but when you consider how many films are in existence on a global scale, it really isn't.

I just bought a few blu-rays from Vinegar Syndrome. They don't have a single title in their entire catalogue that isn't a "weed".

Re: How Many Blu-ray / HD DVD Movies Do You Own?

When I first answered this poll I had under 100, now I have over 100. DVD Profiler is acting wonky, tells me I have 10 BD Combos when I counted 10 just up to the C's, so I don't trust it to give me an accurate count. Counting them manually by title I have 149, but that's counting sets (like the Back to the Future trilogy) as one, so counting each would mean I have more than that. Also have a few 3D BD/2D BD combos (even though I don't have a 3D TV or BD player, the packaging was preferable). If I were to believe what DVD Profiler is telling me it looks like I have 193 total blu-rays.

One man's weed is another man's rose. I have more than a few in my collection as well. But I tend to do a lot of pruning. I had two titles in my cart during the Vinegar Syndrome sale, "Jack Frost" and "The Hearse" but I never completed the purchases. I just couldn't justify spending that kind of money on those two titles.

Re: How Many Blu-ray / HD DVD Movies Do You Own?

Blu-rays....probably 500-750 range. I know I need a better count, but I've been lazy on my mobile app.

DVD's...maybe a couple of hundred at the most...I've worked this down considerably in the last few years to where it is only TV sets and DVDs that have no other option.

4k's...I think I counted 25 at this point.

I really don't like the fact I don't have an accurate count..where as even 5 years ago, I could have told you exactly how much I have in every format. But now I have a two year old and faced with watching a movie and counting my discs and I'm going to chose the former every time.

Over 4000 BDs, 300 or so HDDVDs, and around 80-90 4K titles.

I had around 2000 dvds but sold most of them off except various TV shows and special interest titles.

Re: How Many Blu-ray / HD DVD Movies Do You Own?

I have about 750 Blu-rays. I go by SKU, so my number may be a little less than others who measure by disc, e.g., Zatoichi box set = 1.
