    Good news for all who hate Snapper cases.

    According to "The Digital Bits" New Line have decided to discontinue the use of these cardboard monstrosities in favour of the more widely accepted Amaray case.......not before time too!

    I suppose that the writing was on the wall as New Line have used Amaray's for most of there recent high profile releases.

    As New Line are a subsidiary of Warner Bros one can but hope that this will mean Warners too will ditch the snapper at some future point.

    Shame that this comes at a time when yet another design is starting to appear....ie..the "slim pack" eg: Panic Room! :mad:

    Indeed, sometimes I get a DVD out and just end up opening and closing the snapper case for 2 hours instead of watching the movie.

    I've never had a problem getting the disc out, and I think they look better than the plastic versions.

    But you need to wear a clean suit with them to avoid them getting damaged!

    I liked snappers for the reasons given on the other thread about damage to DVD's in amaray cases. Oh well, its damaged discs all round then, but nicer (sic) packaging. Great. Nice to see common sense is not dead.

    It still amazes me that someon cant have a case which doesnt damage discs! I fancy the idea of some sot of flt badding on the inside of cases (at least where the dvd sits).
