    How do you know (when buying on the net) what titles are going to arrive in a **** cardboard box? Is it just Warner Bros cheapo titles?:confused:

    No other companies use this packaging then? I'm buying quite a lot at the moment, and will avoid Warner Bros if this is the case! It really ****es me off that you buy a film and it comes in a glorified fag packet.

    I received my card board pack this morning from deepdiscountDVD and guess what it was empty. Someone I think from the US post had looked inside and decided they wanted the contents. Thankfully it was a cheapo dvd and deepdiscount say they will reship it out to me again. But some dvd companies really make it so easy for the thieves.

    It's the movie that counts, not the wrapping.

    I agree. Packaging is merely inducement to buy. All my discs are stored in DJ type velvet lined sleeves. The packaging is stored away. This keeps even poor packaging in good nick and discs are better protected than any plastic/cardboard case. Everyone's a winner...common sense?

    MJN, couldn't agree more, they're well protected and ready for (nearly) instant viewing :)

    I dont really care about the packaging in fact if it helped either drive the price down or allow for better quality disks I'm for cheapo packaging :p

    Couldn't care less what case they're in as long as the contents are in good nick :)

    One thing I'll say about the crapy WB case is that I've yet to get one with the disk laying loose inside. I've had dozens of the other ones with the disks not inserted correctly causing the disk to be flung about inside getting scratched :mad:

    yeah; with the level of technology today, you'd think they could invent some kind of dvd case, where the disc will not fall out during transit, and get scratched to fudge.

    Yet some inserts make it extremely difficult to prise out the disk.

    Yeah - the Dreamworks ones :(
    These ones are a two hand job with the case lying on the floor or a table.

    Who ever invented them wasn't thinking about accessing the disk quickly. One thing I'll say for them though is that they work at holding the disk in place during transit.

    My 'Mummy Returns' disc broke in half as I tried to take it out of the case due to those friggin teeth on the insert.

    So the 'Mummy Returns' returned to Play.

    Remember the type of case that Lock Stock directors cut used to come in?

    Sturdy clear plastic... more like a CD case... what happened to them?

    just got Cape Fear boxset - sent promptly from PLAY strangely enough - struggled to take them out the cardboard outer sleeve, after eventually teasing them out - could I get the buggers back in? After a few minutes struggling they suddenly went back in, it was then I noticed a nice new vent along the top...nice...2 secs later - sleeve in the bin...thanks:mad:
