Where'd you get the racks, and what'd you pay?

I've been on a spree for the last few months, jumping from about 150 to over 400.

I've sat back now and re-examined my collection. If I'd do it over again, there are a number of titles I wouldn't buy. The bad part is, the collector in me can't bear to part with these discs.

What I have decided to do, is like others have said - ONLY buy films new that I know I'm going to watch 2 or 3 times at least. As for the rest of my purchasing habits, I am looking at Blockbuster and elsewhere for used titles and less than $10 deals.

It's actually kind of funny.

It's a DVD site. Of course people are going to have collections. Some Large, some small, some medium, some with 80% porn, some with no movies after 1960, etc., etc. Wake up and smell the coffee folks.

Just did a recount and added some DVDs that were not added over the past few months.

320 DVD now in my collection over a 4 1/2 year time span - about 6 per months/1.25 per week.

I have 325 with the DDD order soon to arrive. I can see how those with 5 times as many could stand in front of their collection and say "there's nothing to watch". When faced with so many choices it's hard to decide.

I am part of this "Over 300" club.
Someday, I am going to retire and have a lot of video-entertainment at my fingertips.

showing 388 titles, my collection inexplicably just ballooned to this number, I mean, I try to be judicious and smart with my purchases but it just accumulated over time. I like my selection of flicks and tv sets though, so, I'm for the most part, happy.

Didn't expect to get that many responses.

After a while you tend to lose count...well I did anyway.
You mean you can't tell Dark Angel: Season 1 is missing from the picture. I loan them out to family, friends and coworkers. I probably have 20 out right now.
I have a pretty good idea of how many I have (according to dvdprofiler) but I need to do an inventory some time this weekend to fix the problems.

That has to do with the way I sort the dvds. I will explain that lower down in the post.

I didn't want to show the rack that holds the Stargate since it not as nice as those. Here is the picture of the rest of R through part of V. You can see Stargate on the top of the backside if you look close.

I got them from Ikea at ~$80 each. There are 7 in the picture. I need to buy 2 more.

They are organized by anime first, followed by Disney, then other cartoons/animations, and then the rest of the titles. There are a couple oddball titles at the very end that I didn't feel fit in (ex. exercise videos).

click here for a larger copy of the picture. It is easier to see the titles but the file size is 3mb so it takes a little while to load. I actually took this picture to show coworkers that wanted to know what the collection looked like.

never had that problem. I have titles I want to watch and not enough time to see them. It takes a long time to watch a whole series of a show (ex Buffy and Angel), even if you watch some every night.

Nice collection.

I have the same JBL desktop speakers. I got them from Office Depot 2-3 years ago for some insanely cheap price like $10. Excellent quality.

After the DDD sale, my new total is 557. Of those, 158 are TV on DVD, according to Profiler.

That would be where those came from. A helpful dvdtalker helped me get in on the deal since I couldn't get them locally for some reason (can't remember why anymore). That is actually a secondary computer. I use it to watch dvds while working on my computer or for friends so we can do gaming.

wow, very impressive collection with a TON of anime.

But that old school CRT monitor definitely looks out of place. Time to upgrade to a flat panel

Thanks for sharing that picture of your collection with us. When I see a collection like that it almost makes me regret that my collection is stashed out of sight in Can-Am cabinets.

I started collecting in early-mid 2000 and shot to 275 or so in a matter of 6 months or so. Then, for a long time, I would never get above 300 because I kept trimming my collection at the same pace I was acquiring new titles. It was probably early 2003 before I went above 300 permanently. I have no idea what the count is now but I would guess it is in the 350-375 range.

I went over 300 but we did not have the shelf space like Dabomb has. We bought a Sony DVP-CX985V 400 DVD Carousel player. Stored the cases in air tight Rubbermade cases in the basement, printed off custom 1 page reports from DVD Profiler and placed them in 2" binders. The collection number in DVD Profiler reports corresponds to the disk number in the Carousel player. When we get over 400, which we will soon, we just figure on getting a second Sony. Multiple inputs on the HDTV allow for future expansion

I finally invested in a 57 inch Hitachi widescreen so I could watch my DVDs in more of a theater-like setting. I'm over 1000 titles so it was something that needed doing in a big way. Some of the stuff I own I haven't seen in such a way since I was a kid, and I've been going to movies since the 60's......it makes a HUGE difference in how you look at your collection. I found my watching to be far more passive on a smaller screen but to see it on a set that can do the DVD justice puts me in my recliner absorbed in the film......makes one want to own all their favorites
