I just got tired of having to replace the media.  I have no more DVDs 
to deal with, except the ones I rent.  And those that are scratched 
enough that if I really cared, I'd buy it, hook up my trusty Denon 
DVD-5910 (which has a nice layer of dust on it), and watch it.

Oh, then I'd rip it and put it in myth as either an ISO or an mpg 
and dare anyone to tell the difference.  The convenience of 
not having to search around for it, while also being able to 
watch it on any TV where I have a myth frontend FAR outweighs 
the picture quality I think might have an advantage by playing 
right through the DVD player itself.
