    My vote goes to the Digipack. I despise any form of cardboard disposable packaging even more then packaging you would consider non-standard.

    Ironically, DVD-As were originally packaged in CD-sized jewel cases. They can still be found sitting on shelves now and then.

    IMO, going with the big cases is understandable, as they probably wanted to differentiate between the a DVD-A and a CD, but I don't like it.

    I really don't have any problems with these Super Jewel Case!
    They are very easy to handle and I like it that way. [​IMG]

    The CD Jewel box sized SACD ones are just as bad. As are the space wasting pre-recorded MiniDisc cases. What happens when I break one?

    My biggest complaint regarding the DVD-Audio cases is that they are too big to fit in my CD music racks.

    Eh, I like 'em. They have a nice solid feel to them and seem to be more durable than the more flimsy CD cases. I'm sure my opinion would be different if I was having storage problems.

    If I hadn't put an extra inch or two of headroom in the custom CD shelves I built several years ago, I'd hate them. But as it stands, I like their extra "presence."
    But then, I'm still grieving the loss of the 12" album sleeve. [​IMG]

    I scan my DVD-Audio booklet & back covers and reformat them to print out for regular DVD keepcases.
