I try to find good deals on titles from abroad and usually a "very good" to "like new" copy will do just fine. It is difficult to find affordable blu-rays of specialty labels as they usually get offered way overpriced on the secondary market. I manage to find a good bargain now and again, usually of someone who isn't out to speculate but just wants to sell his or her copy to a fellow collector.

Usually I'll buy second-hand on an ebay auction for a release that is out of print and going for a lot more than usual. I clean the discs to make sure their clean and I don't damage my player, I replace cases if they need replacing.

As Blurays are more robust the chances of getting damaged discs is a lot less likely. So I'd say Blurays are more suited than DVDs for buying 2nd hand

Hell yes. I've plugged a lot of holes in my collection for a few quid a go (just today I bought Cloverfield for 2). It's a lovely bonus when the UV copy hasn't been redeemed because I can usually sell it for more than I bought the BD for!

No, because they might be scratched to fu***ry and have fingerprints on them etc.

Yes, 95% of my blu-rays are used. Buying new ones is stupid unless somehow they end up at a price that's cheaper than the used ones....

How can you find out if a code is valid without actually using it?

I usually try to buy them new, but if it's an out of print blu ray that is used in like new condition, I'll buy it. My latest one was the original my bloody valentine which is quite expensive. I got it used in near mint condition for 13 bucks on amazon. I couldn't pass it up.

90% - 95% of my collection is second hand. Never had a problem with disks not working or being scratched at most ive had to replace a case.

I payed $40 (AUD) for the first 3 GoT seasons so thats $13.33 each (AUD)


I payed $15 (AUD) each for these

I generally refrain from purchasing used blu rays.

The fact that most of the new ones often end up in one deal or another also helps.

I love them! How can you go wrong for $3. apiece? I hit up all the pawn shops once a month. Every pawn shop is cool and lets me open up the cases and look at the disc. Ones that are scratched. I put back, but I rarely find them. Most are flawless.

I hit the pawn shops all the time. I do buy new ones but not nearly as many as I buy used from pawn shops or thrift stores. Some I even get for $1 or $2.



Picked this up for $2. Mint discs, near mint case.

I buy second hand Blu-rays all the time and I sell them myself. I go for the ones which are at least described to be in a very good condition. I've never had one look considerably worse than a brand new title and never had one not play and that's all that matters to me.

That said, I never would buy from pawnbrokers, they are very unlikely to have any titles that interest me. It's all online for me.

It's a matter of convenience: many Blus aren't available new with slips by the time I get round to buying them, so pre-owned with slip is the only way, often sealed. I don't usually stand to save anything this way. If it's a curiosity blind buy or a film I want to own but don't consider a masterpiece, I'll trawl eBay for the best deal. Conversely, I'll buy, brand-new, multiple different editions of a film I really enjoy, and nearly always buy an expensive special edition, brand-new, of a film I loved in the cinema. Most older films I'm interested in buying I buy used ultimately.

For me it's a mix of both. I buy new for boxsets and boutique label titles (and imports) or if the price difference between new and used is not much and of course if the new titles are available for super cheap in sales or multi buy offers.

I only consider buying used for standard releases. CEX here in the UK typically has blu-rays as cheap as 1, which is a huge saving over the new price in some instances. I always swap out the cases with new spares and the money I save can go towards getting those brand new boutique titles.

I used to buy second hand blu rays from ebay and from members on this site but as I began to value digital codes more and more I stopped buying second hand blus because they rarely if ever came with an intact digital code.
