|It's not the extras, it's the video quality.
Tastes Great! ... Less Filling!
The motivations for purchasing a retail DVD vs. home copying a retail VHS to DVD are varied (quality, extras, format availability, storage considerations, non-linear navigation, backup archive, disposable media, intended audience, effort involved, cost, etc...), and I think that was the point of my previous posts (i.e., there is no one, right answer). Bottom line, everyone needs (and has the right) to decide for themselves what approach makes the most sense for their particular situation rather than be judged by forum members about the subjective merits of their decision (e.g., "so you'd rather have pan-and-scan, lo-res version for $10...").
