DVD vs. LD visually.


I'm about to get some DVD player(only visual quality I do care for) and think about getting some DVD collection. I have LD player and certainly small LD collection of my favorite Holywood and none-Holywood movies. Does it make a sence to sell my LD player with collection and get DVD?

Keep them both. There is no reason not to keep the LD player is there? I have found I own several films that aren't on DVD yet including many concerts, like Pink Floyd. To answer the question you posed, DVD does beat LD for picture quality. Sound quality is another story and I would give the edge (in my set-up) to LD. Anyway, take the best of both worlds.
Definitely keep both. Depends on the movie. I find some movies are worse on DVD compared to LD, probably because of the compression to get a long movie on one side of the DVD with all the extra features.
I AGREE THAT YOU SHOULD KEEP BOTH, I LIKE LAZER BETTER ,TO ME IT GIVES ME A BETTER PICTURE THAN THE DVD.I REFUSE TO PURCHASE MOVIES ON DVD THAT I HAVE ON LAZER AT HOME.
yeah, i find that on some ld's, the colors are truer. plus, ld's never suffer from pixellation.

it just depends on the quality of the video transfer. some of my dvd's blow their ld counterparts out of the water.

as far as sound goes, my ld player sounds marginally better with DD.
I still occassionally pick up a few LDs on eBay as well.
Well I have painted myself in the corner.-- DVD--progressive-- is MUCH better than my Theta Data 3.
Like most of you all I have NOT purchaced duplicate titles--(that I can recall)--Opps,got Braveheart dvd as a gift,that doesn't count,right?--Hell Freezes Over looks better on dvd, sounds better on LD!--Opps, another duplicate. Better go take inventory,there might be more duplicates.
Can't say that i've watched a lot of laser discs, but out of what i have seen, DVD is typically better. The LD player that i have may need calibration though. Given the cost of the unit and how little i've used it, i've been afraid to take it in for alignment. It is a commercial unit that Pioneer Pro marketed and retailed for somewhere around $4K -$5K. Out of the few movies that i have seen with it, i was not overwhelmed. Then again, i don't think that those specific movies were recorded all that great to begin with. Sean

Keep both. I compared the Last Of the Mohicans on both DVD and LD, and while the DVD beat the LD version hands down on DVD, sound quality of the LD was better - low end had more timber and punch. You can't get some movies like Raiders of The Lost ARk and Star Wars on DVD, yet. Pioneer has some DVD/LD combos that you can get used, although you won't be able to get the latest progressive scan machines.
