    I'm not 100% sure this was it but the first one I remember buying myself (not that my family owned) was X-Men.

    Mine was the 709, for the remote hack and possibly because it was the first player from a decent manufacturer under £200. That had playback issues with some discs as well, but allot of players did back then since they were still getting the hang of implementing the spec.

    Can't remember what my first import disc was, maybe T2 Ultimate Edition.

    Probably the 1993 release of Star Wars. We had a VCR for years before that, but rented and recorded off broadcast because pre-recorded tapes were pretty expensive.

    My family never bought any VHS movies, always rented. Only owned one: the first live action Ninja Turtles movie and that was a gift. We were (fairly) early adopters in the laser disc game though :cool:  first one we rented was Dick Tracy in 1990 or '91.

    But if you must know about VHS, it was a blank tape. Don't remember what brand.

    I've tried really hard to remember my first one, and looked at my collection of DVD, but couldn't pinpoint wich one was my first. The farthest I remember is Independence Day Collector Edition (the box say 2003), one of the first time I was out to buy DVD for my new player!

    I'm still with my same old player though, my first and only so far, good old Panasonic never let me down after a good 7-8 years of services :thumbs2:

    I bet in 20 years from now people will be saying, "what the hell's an Ipod?" LOL! How technology has changed from Beta, VHS, CD's, DVD's, MP3's BlueRays, MP4's, downloads.
    Now that I think of it, I think my first DVD was either Cannonnball Run, or Condorman.

    Oddly enough, I am pretty sure it was Batman too, but it may have been TMNT #1.

    First VHS I was too young for, but I remember getting some Marvel cartoon tapes at Lionel's Playworld when I was 4 or 5 (Fantastic Four, Captain America, etc.), and I got GI Joe: Mass Device for Christmas way back when.

    First DVD was Fight Club, I think. Maybe Dogma?

    Of course I do. Even though the video quality is not as good as the VHS version and there's supposedly a subtitle timing problem (haven't watched the subbed version enough to notice), I would never trade these DVDs for the world.

    If my ageing memory serves me well, I believe my first DVD was The Crow.
    My first VHS would be Transformers cartoons which were bought for me when I was a kid, the first i bought for myself was Nightmare on Elm Street (how I didn't get ID'd and told to F*** off I don't know)
    First Blu-Ray, Dark City as I needed to replace my VHS copy due to no longer having a player, just getting a PS3 and it being the same price (or close too) as the DVD version.

    Actually, I remember that better than my first DVD. It was Ghostbusters. Then the Star Wars movies when they came out remastered.

    I am not quite sure, but I believe it's the Bruce Lee Master Collection with 4 movies and 1 documentary about the martial arts legend.

    Technically not related but still, my 1st exposure to digital format was terminator 2 on ld at a friends place. This was back in the 90s n he had a sweet surround sound hookup and it was blast watching that movie over n over just to catch the subtleties of the sound editing, from the exxagerated PCHEW of the trucks fuel tank igniting in the drain scene, to the choppers sound moving from right to left in the siege scene to the awsum score...think it was the 1st time i thought, wow, this watching movies at home could be on to something.
