Hello everyone,

Our friend amaroc from Poland has been kind enough to send me low-res (200dpi) and high-res (600dpi) scans of an old quarterly UK LD magazine Laser Disc Review.

I nice chunk of LD retail history unfolding over the years.

Thanks to amaroc & yourself for giving us the chance to see these on here :thumbup: .

Very interesting & some of the info contained within is quite eye-opening, we were really lucky that the LD format survived past the first couple or three years of its introduction here in the UK. Well known that it was somewhat fraught but the numbers pressed being talked about in such low numbers was lower than I expected & I was aware that the sales figures (hardware & software) were rather small even given that it was a "new" format.

Thanks again & I have got some retro catching up to do.

Cheers

Has anyone else checked these out?

Really interesting & some of the info is quite eye opening.

Any similar US magazines of the same nature?

Thanks again for posting these on here for us.

Cheers to all.
