    This is probably one of the easiest questions asked in this forum. What is the height of the cases for HD-DVDs (as released in the US) - are they the same height as the keep cases for standard DVDs? I just want to make sure that I won't need to adjust my shelving to accommodate HD-DVDs when I start buying them. Thanks.

    I don't know the exact dimensions but I'd guess they are about 3/4 to an 1" shorter than SD-DVD cases and just a tit bit thicker than slimpacks.

    A standard keepcase is 7 1/2" H x 5 1/4" W x 1/2" D.

    A HD-DVD keepcase is 6 3/4" H X 5 1/4" W X 7/16" D.

    Thanks for the answers. No need to adjust my shelving then.
