Liquidating DVD Collection?
I've got around 600 Blu-Rays/DVDs and don't know what to do with them. There are roughly 130 that I haven't seen yet (mostly highly-rated blind buys), probably 100-200 that I'd want to keep, and then anywhere from 250-350 that I've seen that I don't really need to see again but own. All discs are open but in like-new condition.
Where is the best place to trade these in or sell them? Make a big list and post to Craigslist? Sell as a lot on eBay? Any stores still take these things? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

If you want to turn them into cash ASAP, check out Second Spin in Sherman Oaks. They're a reseller, so you won't exactly get top-dollar, but I imagine they'd take a look at them.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

There are a number of places online, just do a Google search. Some will even reimburse you for shipping.

Trying to sell as a lot is not a bad idea, IMO. I may try to do so with some of mine. You might get marginally more value out of that than trading them in to Second Spin or Amoeba. Second Spin has yielded better value than Amoeba in the past, but they just closed one of their locations, so I don't know if their trade-in policy has been affected by that.

As someone who is doing the same thing...
For individual titles, you want to sell on eBay. If you just want to try and get rid of them as quickly as possible, Amoeba.

What's the best way to do this... buy it now or auction?

2. I'd suggest listing individually through buy it now with best offer and make sure you do combined shipping if paid under once invoice. Check sold listings to get an idea of what price you can expect and which ones are even worth listing there.
3. Be sure you know exactly what your shipping costs are so can price accordingly. People hate overpriced shipping and you also don't want to take a hit on your shipping cost by underpricing.
