        I prefer the dropouts, linear access, lower quality, media fragility, and lower player reliability of The Video Home System.

            I don't really have a preference. I like Dvds in the sense that they have better quality and bonus features. Plus you can easily skip scenes and features. But I like VHS because they don't get damaged as easy, I've straight up broken tapes in half. taped the tape back together and replaced the case and the movie still plays. Just with a little static where the scotch tape is. I've completely wrote off Dvds just by dropping them.

              I prefer VHS a little more to DVD. Like when I'm in a thrift shop every few weeks or so for shopping, I find myself buying a movie on second-hand VHS tape. I also got a VHS player from that same thrift shop. Otherwise for more recent releases, I use streaming or DVD, but I don't like new releases that often.

                DVD to watch things on but VHS as a cool retro item.

                  I sort of like both. I have a VCR/DVD-R combo deck where I can copy VHS onto DVD. I have a lot of home-recorded and pre-recorded VHS tapes (with the pre-recorded tapes being mostly music video compilations and concerts). As with audio cassettes and vinyl records, I sometimes pop in a VHS tape when I feel a little "nostalgic", especially on the weekends.

                    What brand is this? I've never heard of a combo that copies vhs to dvd.

                      DVD without a doubt. I don't miss having to rewind movies after I'm done or having to fast forward to get to a part I want to see. I also certainly don't miss rewinders or the VCR itself eating my tapes. VHS was good for it's time, but that time has come and gone.

                        I have total respect for DVD, but VHS is my personal favorite.

                              Man, VHS and I go way back. I started using VHS from the time I was 5 in the early 90s all the way up to the late 90s when I was still recording Simpsons episodes on VHS. Even though I have a nostalgic connection with VHS and still enjoyed buying a bunch of VHS for dirt cheap way into the 2000s, I have to say DVD was definitely an upgrade. Now I have a ton of Blu-ray movies that I watch on my PS3.
