I used to then stopped back in the VHS days when stuff would come back ripped and destroyed. They also thought that because I had a lot of movies, that I was their personal Blockbuster and they'd be calling and knocking at my door at all times of the night. Then I stopped. Recently though, I will loan some out to a buddy of mine from work which I know takes care of his stuff. He'll also be my Ginny pig to make sure my Blu's work. I have a backlog of stuff that needs watching and if he watches it, then I'm sure it works fine. Recently I loaned him Game of Thrones S4 as soon as I received it in the mail, since I won't have time for a while, so I know it works. Came back in the same condition I loaned it out in. I'll also lend my brother and my girlfriend some once in a while as well.

Blurays? Loaned out? Bwa ha ha ha ha ha.

I use dot loan out DVD's, but they came back either scratched, smudged or NOT AT ALL.

I tell my friends who request to borrow a bluray...."you're free to watch it here with me, but I don't loan them out anymore."

And as for tv shows on DVD......IF I trust them enough....they only get one disk at a time, sent home in a single clear case, when they finish it, return it for the next disk.

Yes, but would you loan to them, or perhaps, loan to them either?

I do not loan out my BDs. People do not respect other people's property.

Even when you're lucky enough to actually get s**t back, it's usually been disrespected in some way. It's been dropped, spilled on, carelessly handled, etc.

My VHS and DVDs (and some videogames) took enough abuse. I no longer loan out anything I even remotely care about.
I mostly come out at night...mostly.

None of our friends use blu ray, honestly. Even when I try to give away DVD copies most of them have no interest. They don't want to own physical media anymore, if they ever did.

This thread has 55 did I never see it?! Great question.

I have one friend in particular who always liked to borrow my DVDs back in the day. He's a clumsy dude who had the best of intentions, but accidents always happen with him. One time he borrowed my Battle Royale DVD which was hard to come by at the time. He broke in somehow (cracked near the inner hole) and it wouldn't play after that. He felt bad and told me he'd buy me a new one, but for years it was very pricey on Amazon so I just told him to hold off. Then the 'Battle Royale Complete Collection' blu set came out at a very reasonable price years later and he surprised me with that. That made up for it! But because of that, I really don't lend out discs. Thankfully most of my friends don't ask.
