Subject: Laserdiscs - Remember how huge these things were....

Written By: Scribbles on 11/25/08 at 3:07 pm

LOL I almost forgot about these. The laserdisc was the middleman between the VHS and DVD age.

One of my writers, Scott Harlow, typed this article below.

I worked in the Physics department of a university and we bought a laser disc player and a huge set of discs on a variety of Physics themes and experiments.  I wonder what happened to them...

Hahaha I can relate to that. It used be the teacher's most prized TV set!  ;D

They took extra careful care on the laserdisc player.

I remember seeing em in Sam Goody back in the mid 90s, though we never had a laserdisc player.

I remember when Laser Discs were popular.  The first time I'd really seen what one looked like was on an episode of the short-lived 90s sitcom 'Something So Right'

I saw a whole bunch of Laser Discs at a flea market the other day.  The vendor was asking $5 each.  I don't know if that is a good price of not.  Not that I would've bought them, but they might be worth serious coin on ebay?

I saw these at places like Sam Goody all the time (mostly in the early 90's) and I really thought at one time Laserdiscs were going to permanently replace VCRs! Every now and then I see used Laserdiscs at thrift stores.
