    TK Arnold seems to feel the same way about snappers as most of us here in the HTF do. Is he just now noticing that snappers are bad? Well, I guess it's good to have another "anti-snap-ite" in the world. But will WB listen?

    Snapper, crapper. When will Warner listen to its customers?
    See the poll at http://www.thebigpicturedvd.com It indicates that 80% prefer the keepcase with only 7% the snapper. Collectors do care about packaging!!!!!

    IF the WB ever decided to switch to keepcases, I hope they offer some sort of return/exchange for the snappers. Maybe even just the keepcase cover art. Either way, I know it won't happen. We can dream, can't we?
    Quickly, Off topic,
    I got to meet and interview Kevin Pollak today. Nice guy. He signed my "Usual Suspects" DVD. He's doing some shows in town this weekend.
    Okay, now let's get back on topic...

    Hmm. I have to say that I honestly don't mind snappers all that much.
    Amarays are better but it's not like I do anything with the snappers to make them get damaged. They sit on the shelf and occasionally get opened for the movie.

    I will agree with Theo on this while I am writting my will in anticipaction of the lynching that is bound to follow. [​IMG]
    Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't Warner DVDs generally cheaper? I we owe this to snappers then I will take that...

    Warner has agressive pricing but I seriously doubt that it has anything to do with the use of snapper cases. Even the bargain labels use keepcase and Warner provides keepcase in the Japanese market with their DVDs in Japan at nearly the same price as in the U.S. market.
    In Japan, Warner major titles list for 2500 yen with catalog titles at 2000 yen. Two disc sets like Ben Hur were prices at 2980 yen. Ben Hur, in Japan, was 2-disc set in 2-disc keepcase. With the yen/$ rate at 120, these prices are nearly identical to Warner's U.S. price.
    Warner should provide their U.S. consumers with the package they want. There are reports out that Warner changed from the snapper to the keepcase recently for the Australia market.
