    This is the nicest looking box I have.
    The aesthetics are really classy, just a simple Godfather logo, and other necessities.
    Paramount Widescreen Banner is nowhere to be seen! [​IMG]
    Barcode? on the bottom! [​IMG]
    MPAA & CHV Ratings? on the bottom too! [​IMG]
    Spec Sheet? Removable! [​IMG]
    The security tag? on the inside! [​IMG]
    So far, this is REALLY great!, to the bad bits I didn't like, more on the function side of things:
    Spec Sheet: Uses some weird glue that is really hard to remove! [​IMG] There's another type of glue, used by other studios that rubs off really easily. It does no damage to either the sheet or the case.
    Security tag: ... well, i'm kinda mixed on this one... there really was no good space for it, I guess. My gripe is that when I removed it (to prevent FURTHER damage to the DVD cases), I ripped the inside paper all the way to the back and up a bit. [​IMG]
    The DVD cases: I'm disappointed here too. While the cardboard is strong, it just doesn't feel right. It doesn't close properly, and the corners WILL eventually wear down. One of my cases has already suffered a bit of damage thanks to the aforementioned security tag.
    The cases also slip out way too easily. that doesn't usually happens with keep cases.
    I read on another board that Paramount is supplying Keep Case covers for rental stores. Is this true? I would like to order a set, please.
    ... In Form v. Function, it's clear that form was the priority here. And I am VERY grateful for that, as this set looks a lot better than ANYTHING Paramount has done, including Forrest Gump. The way the box was done is innovative, with only one Paramount logo visible from the side. But I still do wish that function had been bumped up a small notch.
    And now, I must spend the next 18 hours in seclusion in order to actually watch the contents of this box. [​IMG]
