    Hi everyone, just purchased my first LD player today!

    Post  HAD0KEN on Mon Dec 05, 2011 7:09 pm

    Been after one for ages, and today I managed to grab one from Cash Converters for £29. Here's a little video I made for it

    [[EDIT, woops, can't link as I'm new. Go to YouTube and search CLD-S315, mine is the first video, username had0kenuk]]

    Expecting my first Laserdisc movie in the post anytime this week. I purchased Timecop from eBay. After Christmas I'm gonna start collecting more Very Happy

    Welcome to the forums.

    I have just seen you video on YT and it looks tobe a neat little machine. As I said on YT, I too have one as my last reserve player.

    I don't know what types of films you are into but there are loads from our members here to be had.

    Hi

    I am mainly into horror as well.

    It can be an expensive hobby but I think you will have fun collecting Laserdiscs.

    I have never seen the CLD-S315 but I own a CLD-2950 and a CLD-310. The 2950 is my main machine and I might sell the S310 on in the future.

    regards

    Jason

    Awesome! Yeah I've been fascinated with Laserdisc's since I first saw one in the mid 90's. Can't believe it's taken me this long to get one!

    Jurassic Park is the first movie I want to search for on LD. Preferably the Fossil Edition.

    This one http://www.lddb.com/laserdisc/19067/PLFMD-32701/Jurassic-Park-(1993)

    I picked one of them up a few weeks ago. Its a really nice release. Lots of booklets and charts inside.

    Yeah that's the one Very Happy I watched a video of it on YouTube. I've already got a list of movies I want to get. Kickboxer is another I really want to get.

    Do I notice a certain leaning towards the movies of JCVD? Either way, put your list up here and we can see what your requirements are... there are plenty of fair members here with some big collections of spares.

    I wish my local cash converters had LD players! you got a good deal, i beleive the S315 is single side play only? that would be annoying for films in Cav format! you'd have to get up at least 3 times to change sides and disc! but for £29 who cares!
