How Many DVD's Do You Own?
I know this has been asked but I couldn't find it.

Anyway I own 1,015 last I checked. I ask becuase I want to know if my habit is really all that bad. I don't watch them alot but the habit of buying it is pretty out of control.

I have around 600.  I've taken quite a few in the past months to the pawn shop to clear out extra room for more exciting titles.  It was a bad habit for a while, but I'm back in control again.

Mine is close to 450. Can't wait to break the 500 mark.

A little bit over 200......I'm forcing myself to pretty much stop buying until I see where HD-DVD/Blu-Ray is going.

I still say our very own Matt has the most ridiculously large collection I've ever seen!

Over 1000. Maybe 2000. I can't remember. Perhaps I can find that thread for you guys.

Matt's profiler isn't up to date (says he only has 700 odd), but I've seen pictures of his home theatre room and it's wall-to-wall in there (and that was back when he first started writing for the site).

According to my Profiler I have just under 490, but I haven't updated in a while. If I added in all the check discs I have lying around I'd have a couple of hundred more (easily), but I don't really count the majority of them.

I've really scaled back my purchasing. It was getting out of hand for a while, and I was compulsively buying stuff just for the sake of it. Now I only buy titles I really want, which is why my collection has remained roughly the same size for the last year. It's saved me a load of cash. Trouble is, now I have the compulsion to buy a new HD TV, and I only bought a new CRT 18 months ago...

I think I might rival Matt's collection.  Last time I checked, I had about 1600 titles.

Am I the only one that finds that a bit silly?  This could mean you don't buy another DVD for years.  Who knows where HD-DVD/Blu-Ray is going?  All we know is that there aren't many titles available.

Right now, I have no idea. I bought a new PC about two months ago and failed to carry over my DVD Profiler database before wiping the hard drive on my old PC. Not really that big of a loss anyway since it was really out of date, but I've been slowly building it back up off and on over the past two weeks. I need to enter everything and keep it up to date this time for insurance purposes. This is what I have entered back in so far, gotta long way to go.

Why does your DVD Profiler page look so different from mine?

525 according to my nerdy excel sheet I keep updated here at work.  

I hate to think of the $$ that went into all that, since a huge chunk is sets of TV shows and the like.

Thanks.  I can't remember the last time I actually logged into the Intervocative site.  I like that layout better.
