    Warner US have announced the Matrix ReLoaded will be released in a completely new desgin case. This fantastic advance in technology will mean The Matrix ReLoaded will be released in a new Plastic case that is more durable than the current Cardboard variety favoured by Warner. But alas, Warner US have said this is not a change in the company strategy, as they will look at packaging for films on an individual basis. I wonder how long it will be until Wanrer re-release the Matrix in this style too?

    On another note, it doesn't appear the UK will benefit, as this is a US only change of heart! Australian buyers already get the original Matrix in an Amaray case, as it is released there by Village Roadshow, not Warner Bros.

    Just a question, how many of you use the DVD cases? I store all my 400 DVDs in Case Logic wallets...

    I still use the original cases, thought about using a wallet, but youve still got to keep the boxes somewhere

    Yeah, I keep the cases separately in the attic. It's just so much neater and easier browsing a DVD colllection through a nice big Case Logic wallet...

    I think you'll find that the "new design case" will actually be
    your run of the mill Amaray case as this quote from a Warner's
    source explains....

    "We evaluate each product and its packaging configurations," a Warner spokesperson told Video Store Magazine. "For Reloaded, we felt the Amaray was the right packaging. There is no overall change in our packaging strategy."

    Personally, although I prefer Amaray cases I still like Warner's
    cardboard snappers which, along with the digipacks, adds
    variety to my shelves. My mate, though, absolutely hates them
    and has yet to buy a Warner title that has the snapper!

    Snappers are ****e, and so are cardboard boxes which fall apart and dont fit on the dvd shelves. The only thing they do offer is variety - but i'd rather have long lasting plastic cases that fit in the dvd rack (amray).

    I've had a couple of films in "snappers" and have now found a use for all those AOL free trial discs which fall through my door daily. Problem solved. Means buchering the cardboard attrocity but it's an eyesore anyway so with care it's an improvement.

    I think its a kick in the teeth if a massive studio like Warner can't even pay more for plastic cases... Makes me feel physically sick..

    I dont have a problem with snappers, sure they stick out a little but i can look past that and then dont fall apart if you look after your dvd collection.Plus if you unfold the Cardboard you can see the date that is was manufactured on.:lesson: :rotfl:

    I think the snappers would probably cost more to produce than an amaray with printed Paper sleeve.

    I must say that I find the snappers give a cheap and nasty feel to the product, after all the packaging is all part of the buying experience. Also when replacing DVDs on the shelves they tend to catch the protruding plastic lip, pushing the DVD back on the shelf so the fronts don't line up which is a pain in the @*se. I know I'm very sad but it looks nicer on the shelf if all the fronts line up.:mad:

    I hate snappers sufficiently that i will specially avoid releases with them..... and go to R4 or something.

    And i wouldnt store discs in a wallet...... how can someone come and look through my collection if they are in a wallet. Actually i bought a nice book shelf to house them.
