  • Blu rays. Do you rent or buy?

    having just bought a nice looking blu ray player for the home threatre, I thought I'd wander down to my local videoezy store to rent out a couple of discs to watch on our new player.

    So I walk in and look around for the rental blue rays, can't find them so I ask one of the staff who direct me to a corner where there is a couple of racks of blue rays, pretty lousy selection really.

    Given that blu rays are cheap and been around for some time such as the PS3, I'm surprised that my local video ezy store has bugger all discs to choose from.

    Is it just my store and I should be going elsewhere or is it that the stores don't want to rent out blu rays?

        At my local video ezy in Padbury they seam to be getting maybe between 2 and 4 copies for most of the new releases. They have an average range of the older ones, but not the best.

        Its always good when the dvd's are out of stock there, more than likely, will be the bluray version still available. Now all i have to do is get a HD tv to play them on

            The blockbuster just up the road in Alexander Heights has a semi-decent range

                    Just remember a tactic some are using now is the rentals (and ex-rentals) doesn't have the extended bits, doco's etc that purchased ones do.

                          Mr John

                          A fair way. 10 clicks or so north up alexander then turn left at beach road.

                          barfridge

                          Blockbuster in alex heights? Where abouts is that? I only know of the video ezy alex heights next to domino's/red rooster.
                          On a side note barfridge, do you have a white holden ute? saw one the other day with a custom plate and thought, now that'd be a good plate for you!

                            erm, maybe it is video ezy
                            (just checked my membership card, and it is video ezy, sorry)

                            and no uterus for me, only a dead Daewoo. What was the plate?

                              NP.

                              I've been into that store and their range is about the same as girrawheen.

                              The Ute I spotted was a white VZ lowered, loud exhaust/worked V8 coming out of osborne park on hutton street around 5.15pm one day last week. I didn't get a proper look at the plate but i'm pretty sure it was either "FRIDGE" OR "FRIDGEY" or something with the word fridge in it. Might be a tradie in the air con business or something.
                              I'll keep an eye out for it again as most of these vehicles are regulars in and out of ossie park.
