    If so, do you think they scratch the surface?
    I've been using one but I'm not sure If I'm picking up extra scuffs from the plastic sleaves.

    My advice is not to do this, scratches are unavoidable.

    I have part of my collection of DVDs in CaseLogic DVD binders. I've had no problems with those discs, some of which have been in and out of the binder several times to play for family and other visitors.

    I also have had no problems with my discs that are in the binders. I would keep them all in the original cases, but frankly, I don't have the room to store my collection of 250 discs (and I wonder where my tuition money goes) in my little dorm room that I share with a roommate (who basically feels he's moved in with a walking talking video store).

    I store my X-Files DVDs in them. If the discs are dust-free in the first place, then how will these slipcovers scratch them? Anyway, I've had no problem.

    A little off-topic, but could storing CDs in a CD binder get THEM scratched, too? I store all my cds in a binder with their liner notes....I stick the liner notes in, then the CDs on top. I take very good care of my CDs (as with my DVDs), but they all have scratches! I don't know if it could be one of my cd players or the case [​IMG].

    No problems with my episodic television CaseLogic binder (with all the Twilight Zones, and space for X-Files, Sopranos, and maybe even the Prisoner).

    Anytime you store a disc in a binder or sleeve system, there is more of a risk of damaging the disc than if it was stored in its original case.
    The hubs on CD (and DVD) cases support the disc by the hub only, so that the inner clear circle is the only part of the disc actually being touched when it is in its case. Since the play surface of the disc doesn't touch the tray, there is a very small chance of it getting damaged at all, and thus this is by far the safest storage method.

    Another reason not to do this is because you are making your collection much easier to walk away with, which did happen to one member here a while back.
    This makes me shiver....
