It has just dawned on me:
1. Â£200 for a decent DVD-r/rw/ram
2. Â£4 to Â£5 for a decent DVD-r
3. Â£20 odd for a decent DVD-ram
expensive in itself, but ...
A. Need a DVD to rip? - Â£3.50 to hire a new title
B. Cost of wear and tear on drive + electricity cost of puter being on for hours
C. General time this whole shenanigans takes ... (ear-ache of the missus etc.)
WHAT THE BLOODY HELL IS THE POINT???????
EG - I could either spend about Â£8.50 + hidden costs, say Â£1.50, = Â£10 + a couple of hours ripping American History X ...
... I saw American History X DVD in my local HMV today - cost ... Â£4.50! :eek:
Someone restore my faith here ... am I missing something (other than ability to "own" a DVD before it is available to buy? (Wow!)
