What's amazing about DVD, from a consumer standpoint, is how quickly it's
been embraced. DVD has been accepted by consumers faster than CD and
videotape ever were. It took over 10 years for VCRs to drop in price from
$2000 to $200; it's taken DVD players only 2 or 3 years to reach that level.
Many people believe DVD truly won't take off until the format is recordable,
but some studies have shown that most people use their VCRs for playing
rather than recording programs.
