How many DVDs do you own?

I was just curious. Approximately, how many DVDs do you own?

The reason I ask because I feel like I could win the award for having the most DVDs. I have over 150 different titles. I?m not at home now, so I can?t give an exact number. I would?ve had a lot more DVDs, but I sold many of them on Ebay because there were some I wasn?t watching anymore and I was running low on shelf space. Almost everyone I know doesn?t even have half the amount of DVDs I have. I am just a DVD freak. I rarely watch stuff on cable now. It?s nice to just pop in a DVD and watch whatever you want, whenever you want. So, am I alone here?

I probably have a little over 100, although I don't watch many of the older ones anymore.

Seriously? Click the link in my sig, and I'm nowhere near as nuts as many others. 150 is small change, and mine also.

Whew! I'm glad I'm not the only one that likes to buy DVDs.

I just checked the link. I see you counted each disc on your TV show season sets as a different title. If that's the case, then I own over 200 DVDs then as I own over 5 different TV shows. I can give an exact number when I get home tonight. I'll see if I can set up a DVD profile like you.

I have about 15, and much of my collection is Futurama. I've been looking for something else good that's worth owning.

Nearly 250, though don't buy as many DVD's now as I did back in the day.

I've got over 400 individual titles. I had to stop about 1.5 year ago because I just didn't have the space for it. It also doesn't help when you've got another 1500+ CDs. I realized much too late how much effort went into maintaining all of it. It was surprisingly easy to let go when you recognize that you just don't need to own every damn movie/tv show/etc you like.

At a guess, somewhere between 650 - 700. I sold a couple of hundred at the start of the year, and haven't really brought that many new DVDs since then (less than 20 since the start of the year).

Can someone show proof of the numbers you're giving, because number above just seems ridiculous.

I'm actually in the process of moving my stuff around, so if you can wait until Sunday evening / Monday you can have bang upto date pics and numbers.

Around 20 or 30. I don't really spend a lot of money on movies.

What can I say? Previously most of my wages went straight on DVDs, there's about ?15,000 worth of DVDs on that wall. Now, I've got more important things to spend the money on (i.e. utility bills, food bills, repayments etc, etc) so I haven't brought as many as before - I think, off the top of my head I brought less than 200 last year, and I probably won't buy 100 this year, 'cause I'm gonna switch to Blu-Ray over the summer.

That being said, I do still buy some terrible movies:

(In my defense, The Contract was a secondhand purchase:)) )

Really? DVDs today are insanely cheap now. I go to Costco and see the X-Men trilogy for less than $20, I grabbed it. I see the Back To The Future Trilogy for less than $15, I grab it. I saw the first two Bourne movies for $10, I grabbed it. When I see movies for a steal price, I grab it and I'm sure many people here do the same.
