They were pretty sophisticated back in the day. Most of them had S-Video outputs, which was basically unheard of.

Picture quality wise with video tape, it was like comparing night and day.

While we're on the subject of movies, I drove past someone in my neighborhood who had a projector on their garage playing a movie lol

Very true. I was fascinated by them way back then. Given the chance I'd probably pick one up assuming I could find some good movies for it.

Yeah, I remember my parents always rented those chinese soap dramas on Laserdisc. I always liked how they were so huge.

Haha well we always rented our movies and shows on Laserdisc and it was just annoying having to hold such a big disc all the time.

They never caught mainstream. Don't recall seeing them at Blockbuster.
