    Damn straight - I purchase some CD's, I would get more if they wern't over priced.

    I pick up a fair few of DVD's too, I think these are slightly overpriced aswell! I just wait for HMV etc. to run the deals :spliff:

    yeah dvd's r a bit expensive, s'all bout the pirated vcd's atm.

    dvd burning aint upto speed yet. i is sure it will follow suit though, sooner rather than later methinks

    I always knew I was doing something good by thieving loads of stuff off the net
    What a great guy I am.

    But anyway all the shit about paying for the cost of manufacturing a CD case and design is kinda irrelevant as you're paying for the music on there and the time and effort that went into it, but i do think that cds are a tad overpriced.

    At the end of the day if I can afford it I'll buy it. Otherwise i'll nab it

    I hvent bought a cd in ages
    Maybe this will change.. but i think it will most likely change due to getting a job, rather than cd prices goign down. unless they become free, in which case I would be quite happy to buy lots of cds
