Yea I just can't agree with that at all. If you don't handle your discs like a mongoloid they'll last a long long time. A DVD player won't eat the tape like a VCR does to VHS tapes. I like VHS and still own some of movies that don't have disc releases (and a few that do) but it's generally just not an optimal way to watch a movie since they're often cropped and they show their age much more than disc.

Whats the point of selling it that cheap. Just as well for them to give it away or something.

I was wondering that myself. It's a place called value village in Canada. Similar to a Salvation Army in that all of their stock is donated. So it's 100% profit. I think they are having a hard time getting rid of them so instead of just throw them out, they sell cheap just for the hell of it.

Does anyone know of any good places in the US to buy VHS movies still? Like any stores that sell a ton of vintage stuff?
