Are you still buying Demo Discs?

Often when considering a movie purchase (on Blu-ray or HD DVD) I might consider getting a film because the A/V quality has gotten top marks, even though I don't see myself rewatching the film that much or even though I already own the film on DVD. In a few years, when the novelty of High Def has run its course (if that's possible) I'll probably look back on these titles with some regret and wish I had based some of these decisions on the merit of the films themselves.

So ... at this stage of mass market high definition video, how many of you are still purchasing titles purely for their "demo" quality? And is there such a thing as too many demo discs?

I've never bought a single movie as a "demo" disk. I only buy movies I love, or the occasional cheap blind buy.
