Re: What percentage of your blu-ray's are double-dips?

So far, I've only double-dipped on the 300 Complete Experience but only because I got it super cheap from the WBshop codestacking in august.

The number of titles I've upgraded from DVD to BD is 27 or 13.6% out of the 199 titles I own. All of those titles were either some of my absolute favorite films or amazing deals.

My percentage is around 40%. But, that was severely impacted by the recent Black Friday deals.

I'd say about 80%, but only because I just got the BD player two weeks ago. I traded in almost everything I have double dipped on. The most recent releases I've gotten are BD only.

Close to 60% of my Blu-ray collection are titles I previously owned (are still own) on DVD.

Of course, my definition of "double-dipping" is re-purchasing the same title in the same format....buying a BD version when you only had the previous film on DVD is what I call an "upgrade", not a double dip....I have upgraded a TON of my DVDs, probably about half of my BDs are such....
Going by this (quite reasonable) definition, 0%. However, roughly 25% of my Blu-Rays were DVD upgrades (I would have guessed 10%). I cannot think of any film that I like enough to plunk down more money just to get a special edition, more bonus features or some kind of collectible item. I'd rather spend the money on new or catalog titles I haven't seen before, and that aren't already a part of my (BD) collection.

For movies, probably around half.....much less for TV shows and music videos.

Re: What percentage of your blu-ray's are double-dips?

Probably somwhere around 50-55%, but I try not to double-dip unless it's a title I really want. I have to keep reminding myself that just because I own something on DVD doesn't mean I need it as soon as it hits BD.

Looks like my percentage just went up today, thanks to Amazon and their "Lost: Seasons 1-5" BD deal...at that low price, how could I not upgrade!

Re: What percentage of your blu-ray's are double-dips?

BD's: 41 of 98 (42%)

HD DVD is higher I think, but I got too lazy to count and was finding it hard to remember what I have on DVD .

Out of curiosity I counted HD-DVD's and it was 26 out of 76.

This. I'm only going to upgrade my favorite films, which I own already, and very few new releases merit BD (IMHO) so my % will always be really high...

Re: What percentage of your blu-ray's are double-dips?

At first, I was only buying BDs for titles I did not own on DVD. But now that I see I can get most titles for ~$6, I'm upgrading lots of titles.

Probably still 50% overall, but growing.

76 of the 170 BD's I have, I previously owned on DVD at some point. That's about 45%.

Re: What percentage of your blu-ray's are double-dips?

Of the 36 Blu-ray movies I own, 24 are upgrades from DVD.

However, three of them were different versions of the movie I own on DVD:
Close Encounters (3 different versions)
Friday the 13th: UNCUT
Friday the 13th Part 3 3-D

Re: What percentage of your blu-ray's are double-dips?

I have 15 Blu-ray dvds and 13 of those have been upgraded from standard dvds in my collection. A number of amazing deals have attributed to my Blu-ray craze lately.

Re: What percentage of your blu-ray's are double-dips?

Our Blu-ray library currently stands at ten titles. Of these, six are titles we owned on DVD. Ergo, 60% of our collection is either a "double dip" or an "upgrade," depending on your definitions. The Departed is interesting because on one hand, it's an upgrade in quality; on the other hand, our Two-Disc Special Edition DVD included Scorcese on Scorcese, which is not present on the BD. The upgrade might be nullified by the downgrade, making this just a...grade?

Re: What percentage of your blu-ray's are double-dips?

I own too many dvds to upgrade. The only main upgrades to BD are the computer animated ones. Very few of others. So far I've upgraded:

Cars
Monsters Inc.
Corpse Bride
Monsters Vs. Aliens
Interview with a Vampire
Harry Potter and the Scorceror's Stone (replaced with Ultimate)
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (replaced with Ultimate)
A Bridge Too Far (gift from my in-laws)(I already own the 2-disc dvd)

I want the rest of the Ultimate Harry Potter and the extended Lord of the Rings.
