Default What is your favorite type of packaging?

What type of DVD packaging do you like the best for a season set of a TV show? Slim cases, Digipacks, or standard DVD cases? They all have their ups and downs in my opinion. Sometimes when you open a slim case, the discs often pop out at you. Digipacks are a bit too flimsy. Standard keepcases are fine but a bit boring in my opinion. What do you think?

I like the standard DVD cases. They seem to be more sturdy.

I like the multi-disk cases sold by third-party retailers such as http://supermediastore.com Right now I have three DVD racks sitting in the garage awaiting my next garage sale. Placing the disks in these kind of cases has reduced space on my shelves to the point they are no longer needed. As for the original cases, with the exception of custom made cases (Read the original Battlestar Galactica, I Love Lucy & Land of the Giants, as well as out-of-print sets among others, these are placed in a box and stored in the attic of my house.

I like the slim line dvd packaging. Nothing too big or bulky.
I also like any packaging that isn't where the dvd's are just in a cardboard packaging with no disc inlay as it can lead to the dvd's becoming scratched over time

Same with me. They save on shelf space. The more compact, yet sturdy, the better.

The complete release of Barney Miller, from what I've seen, is in a sturdy gloss box, and the discs thereof are very well protected within five slipcases. I won on two fronts with that one: a good show, and even better packaging.

Mill Creek is very much guilty of that. I have one of their releases: that of No. 1 of Hunter.

I prefer the packaging of the regular dvd cases.

Mill Creek also stacks discs on top of a single spindle. I really hate that!

My favorite packaging is the slim line cases with the episodes listed on the disc and the back of the case.
