Reasons VHS Tapes Are Better Than DVDs


The Top Ten

1 Will Not Skip If Scratched

True. - peaceswagtv

2 You Can Fast Forward Through Commercials

You can fast forward on DVDs, as well as instantly get to points in the video. Also, you won't buy a DVD with ads interrupting anything. - PositronWildhawk

Not on the dvds I have. They all make you wait through the commercials. Maybe you live in another country. If you feel so strongly about attacking my list, why don't you make a new one? - Rpemk

3 Cheaper

I mean they GIVE them away at my local charity shop (Thrift Store) - vvmax

I don't think so.

4 Sound Quality

Go home, you're drunk.

DVDs: Satisfied, though will go with Blu-Ray.Video Tape: Static, static, static. - PositronWildhawk

5 Remembers Where You Stopped
6 Easier to Use

Like when I had to spend ages waiting for the tape to rewind, and when the tape tore or got tangled. - PositronWildhawk

Like when you have to go through repetitive menus and a no-skip program during commercials with dvds? - Rpemk

7 Never Needs Internet Access

DVDs aren't Netflix. And you don't get the lack of choice. Video tapes do, since you don't have anything since 1993. - PositronWildhawk

Lack of choice does come with some dvds since Blu-ray was released. Uncommon though, I will admit. - Rpemk

8 Easier to Find

This list was made 311 days ago? I was thinking it was made in like 2005 or 2006 when there were still VHS copies.

In 2015, are you serious? - PositronWildhawk

9 They Last a Lifetime

No, they disintegrate over time. Color, sound, and quality gets worse with age and wear.

10 No Region Lock

The Contenders

11 Retro
12 You can go back where you left off without fast fowarding

True I have had continued watching a movie I stopped watching and came back a few hours later, and started right where I left off, on dvd I had to use scene selection

13 You don’t need a remote

Uh yes you do

14 Exclusive Content

Sometimes on vhs you get things like the original unedited star wars. Things like these have never made it to DVD or Blu-Ray.
