Does it make sense to buy VHS tapes if the content is offered in digital
format? I've worked myself into a possibly pointless quandary over this,
given that many people don't even use VCRs any more. But we're finding
circulating DVDs to be so fragile, whereas most of our older VHS tapes have
lasted many years, Does anyone have a policy of continuing to collect in VHS?
