    When Ben Hur was released in Region 1, there were a number of posts complaining about the use of DVD-18 in a standard cardboard snapper case. Some said it was not fitting for a special edition.
    Recently Warner released Ben Hur in Japan (Region 2, NTSC) with two DVD-9 discs (movie on one, extras on second DVD) in a two disc keep case. Instead of a flipper, the two discs had nice artwork on one side.
    Otherwise, the Region 1 and Region 2 editions were identical except for the addition of Japanese language support.
    It appears that Warner is not listening to its Region 1 customers. Warner has always used keepcase type package in Japan.
