Do your DVD cases get scratched or "beaten up"?

DVD cases are wierd, they seem to get scratches when they're barely ever touched!


Another thing I hate is what I started calling the "fog up" phenominon in which the clear plastic on the outside of keep cases starts to become less clear and foggy looking, I have no idea why this happens, oxydation I suppose, but I hate it.

About the dented BoB tin box, why not just beat the dent out from the other side with a small ball pean hammer and then touch up the paint if nessasary?

I thought of that, but it is right on one of the corners, and you can't really get to it from the inside, because of the way the metal is folded around the corners. If only the dent was on the back panel or something. Thanks for the idea, though.

I keep all of my DVDs in "condoms," as it were. Actually, polybags. This not only reduces shelf-wear but also lowers the discs exposure to the elements (i.e. oxidation).

Like CDs, DVDs are metal discs sheathed in plastic and all plastics are pourous. The less they are exposed to air, the less chance of the metal layers corroding.

You can buy them at Bags Unlimited
