I collect Laserdiscs. I even have some valuable ones like THX WOW in pristine condition. I had Robinson Crusoe on Mars Criterion Edition, which is very valuable. I have Jurassic Park DTS sealed, which was the first LD with DTS. I have a mostly classic sci-fi lot, but I have a lot of 80s stuff to like Firestarter with Drew Barrymore. I have a few of the original Star Trek episodes sealed in LD.
My LD player is a Sony MDP-A1 and it is a work horse. It has optical out audio, composite, s-video, and component video. It's also auto-reverse, so I don't have to manually switch sides like most of the earlier LD players made you do. Also playes CDs. I keep it around and occasionally watch a LD movie just for nostalgia. The video quality is better than a VHS, but the media is way too fragile. They oxidize with age and some even come right out of the wrapper with laser rot due to a poor manufacturing process. I've bought brand new LDs with laser rot.
LD would have been more successful if they wouldn't have priced themselves out of business. Players were expensive and movies were very expensive.
