Hi all,

I was wondering if there is anyone out there who still plays or knows of anyone who still plays laserdiscs. I have a collection of them, about 100 or so and 3 laserdisc players. I would love to be able to sell them off someday. If anyone is interested please send me a message. Thanx.

I have also been trying to sell many laserdiscs, but I will tell you- there is very low demand out there.

I buy them occasionally on ebay more like to fill a void like a part 3 of a movie I missed .
I would think there is some companys that specialize in sales of laserdiscs , there has got to be some collectors or maybe traders out there '
I to have a few nice players and 50 or so discs .

I have about 100 or so myself, and a perfectly functional Pioneer player. I was told once that they may become a niche collector's item some time down road, so I decided to hang onto them. And they hold a special place in my heart. Cinematic nostalgia... I know.

I am the same way !
Even though I have 500+ dvd's I still open up my Laserdiscs and am amayzed by the huge cover and all the information printed on them !
A friend has a original pioneer laserdisc that one has a plastic cartridge you put the SINGLE disc in and set in the player !
I have 2 players one is a kereyokee (wrong spelling) and the other is a pioneer ES that plays both sides w/out so you dont have to flip the disc .

I've got a Sony Laserdisc player that plays one side at a time, and about 100 discs. Awaiting my HDTV Plasma to be delivered, will I be able to watch them on it ? Unfortumately there doesn't seem to be much of a market for them anymore.

Thanks, I've got alot of old movies I still like to watch occasionally. I'm glad that I'll still be able to watch them.

I've had tremendous luck selling them on Ebay, but can't seem to move them on Amazon at all. Watching this gem right now:

Having spent so much on the machine (Pioneer CLD-D702) and
discs (about 200 titles), I wouldn't part with my LD stuff until
I've gotten my money's worth out of it (not likely to happen).

I'm always on the lookout for LDs with content that hasn't been
issued on DVD, or if it is on DVD, costs more than it's worth.

Why spend $30 for something worth $5 when you can buy it for $1?

I just removed my Laserdisc player and VCR from my audio rack this past week. I sold about 30 of my discs two years ago for a buck a piece. I plan on putting the player and remaining discs on Craigslist in the next few days; I will get what I can for them.

A bubby has an original pioneer (1970's) that has the plastic case that you insert the dvd and then insert that unit , I have 2 nice pioneers one plays both sides whats nice is it has a jog shuttle that is a million times better than any dvd I ever used , I think I am going to hook up that old machine and watch some classics .

Three words. Han Shot first. On Laserdisc, you get to have that forever

how much are you asking for the bundle, and what kind of laserdisc players are they?

I've got a sony MDP-455 in good shape with manual, remote, and 49 moveis that I would sell for $125 + shipping

I still have my Pioneer CLD-3070. I've kept only about 30 or so music related titles and a small number of movies. I used to have more movies but I simply trashed them before moving about 10 years ago. They were all titles I also had on DVD. Some of the titles were really dreadful transfers to laserdisc so I had no qualms over dumping them. About a year ago, I saw an online ad from someone wanting to buy laserdiscs, so I sold him a few at almost giveaway prices.

sure you could but it would require some equipment and it would still be in SD.
