    I've got a lot of VHS tapes, and it is too costly for me to transfer them over now. My combo DVD VHS eats tapes, so I don't dare play anything on it.

    I amassed tons of cassettes over the course of my VHS "career," most of them home-taped off the air and from cable. I part with more of them every time I move, to lighten my load. I bought some TOS episodes pre-recorded.

    Knowing that the VCR would die even if I had a free shelf by the TV to keep it on, I scanned the VHS box art from TOS, Lost in Space, and a few other things. Your memories never really fade if you have hi-res jpegs stored away. I love my scanner.

    The beauty of the switch to blu-ray is that I don't HAVE to replace my dvds like I had to replace my VHS. Blu-rays can play dvds. And DVD format is good enough for me. So even when they quit making dvds and dvd players, My current dvd library will be playable. I won't have to stock up on dvd players like i had to VCRs.

    I still got my TOS VHS collection, they are actually bilingual...German / English, so I got to watch most of TOS in english waaaaayyy before DVDs became mainstream.
