I still buy, and regularly. I dare say I've a collection that'll stand up to those in the various pictures folks submitted, impressive as they be.
While it's fun, the Internet, like a verbal contract, isn't worth the paper it's written on. Ask anyone who's tried to follow most webcomics. :)
I'll stick with physical DVDs.

i REALLY have digital ownage. Anything can happen. File corruption. Different harddrive, different files. Slow down computer. It's just a real hassle. I love actually being able to hold what i own in my hand and have the discs, case, everything.

Physical media, you own it and can still watch it 10+ years from now.
I have a large amount of anime where streaming license's expire.

What people don't realize how much anime is now longer available. Sometimes you get lucky and it get's re-licensed, sometimes it doesn't.

Here's the bulk of my collection (not all of it).

Given the choice I'd rather stream than collect discs. Though I did by a round two mystery box and I will buy series I particularly like (7 so far) that's about as close as I come to a collection.

If I really like the anime, then I will buy it.

I dont download anime, i stream it, and when i can legally buy it i do, but only if i like it, have bought a few animes from japan just cuz i knew they definately wouldnt come to denmark and i really wanted to support the author.

The quality doesnt matter to me at all, its the story always, the content, not whats around it ^^ Although i dont wanna watch animes where you cant tell a tit from a moose o.O

I have a very limited amount of anime on DVD that I've acquired over the years. It's so expensive that I only have a few collections: DBZ, Outlaw Star, El Hazard, and Death Note.

I'm glad that I've been able to take advantage of the power of streaming video over the last couple of years. I have no plans to spend money on DVD's again. I've never been able to afford to be an otaku until I started watching streams- it's much preferable to the crap I used to watch on TV, so I'm pretty happy I got back into anime.

I own quite a few dvd's and some blurays. I don't like spending lots of money though and I don't like massive shelf space waste. So I wait for them to release a single box set usually and for the price to be halfways reasonable, then I get it. I own probably 30 or so sets, maybe more. One I still refuse to buy as of yet is the dot hack roots series as they haven't released a boxset, the bootleg version on amazon doesn't count. The Dot Hack Trilogy movie I also refuse to buy as it isn't on bluray here. It's on bluray elsewhere, but not in the US, blasted ripoff bastards. A few of my more prized anime's would be Trigun, Heroic Age, Soul Eater, and FMA Brotherhood. One thing that does piss me off though, on any disc sets, anime and non anime both. They often have those annoying tabs to hold the discs in place and a number of them are usually broke before I even get my sets. I am very careful with my stuff and it's annoying having them partially broken before I even get them in the mail.

Well I recently started collecting some things (and also began realizing it's an expensive hobby) but the few things I do have is the Gurren Lagann Complete collection, Full Metal Panic complete first season, Maid Sama complete collection, Big Windup Complete collection, and the first season of Code Geass should be coming any day now.

Yes, I import Japanese BDs and DVDs both to support the industry and to guard against the time when my favorite anime become unavailable for streaming.

To be honest no, I do not buy anime on DVD/Blu-ray very often. It is rare to see me spend money on this compared to say my music collection or video game hobby. Now, I do own about 10 shows but I do not have any plans to expand beyond that. Unless I really enjoy the show then I may consider purchasing it but streaming is just fine for me.
