What's the best way to sell off a large collection of HD movies (either format)?

I own about 70 to 80 blu-rays now, and plan to sell of many of them on E-bay when I return to the USA next year. I'll probably keep the ones I really like, and just buy more used ones with the money I get.

Should I sell them in groups of 5? 10? One bulk mass of 50 disks or more, or should I just sell them individually?

Does it matter?

Which will bring in the most money? Perhaps selling in bulk will help me to unload a few discs that normally wouldn't sell easily, or bring low returns for the investment (such as BOGO disks that have been for sale cheap forever).

I know it is more work, but you'll probably do best selling them one a time.

Yeah just sell them individually and if you want to do bulk deals do that as well. It'ld be hard to pack 5 movies bulked if someone only wants 2-3 of them but if the prices are good and the buyer gets a good deal on a bunch of them they'll sell quick

Set up a vague ebay auction for all of them and let them know that you will sell them individually via email. It worked for a lot of my SD's. As long as there are no bids on the auction you can revise it. People tend to look at the lots more. Checks the hits on the lots compared to the hits on individual ones.

You got The Transporter? PM me

Only watches movies on celluloid in the DOP's personal home theater.

Sell them on Amazon, there's no writing, scanning, and Amazon pays you, so no back-outs. It's very fast, and HDM still retains enough value that the amount you get back will be reasonable. Ebay might get you more, but it's a comparative pain in the ass.

No, it's OK. That disc you sent me actually had a winning lottery ticket stuck behind the slip ad!
