I got one in the early 90s(maybe around '93). I didn't actually own a lot of discs but there was a video store in my area that actually was renting them out and i knew someone with a lot of discs for borrowing. Laserdisc was by far the coolest period for home movies. It won't be duplicated again for obvious reasons. Letterbox formatting of the movies was an eye opener. People sometimes forget how bad pan and scan was and that was the standard for VHS and cable. I fell in love in with letterbox the first time I saw it at home. Just felt cinematic Audio blew away VHS The artwork made it feel more tangible. Halloween Criterion edition is a work of art. Seeing some like that 1994 was pretty groundbreaking and just badass. Flipping the discs wasn't an end of the world thing at the time considering how much better the experience was over VHS. We were living in the stone ages at the time with rewinding VHS movies..etc.
