Be very afraid the cases suck.
I don't have the issues you have and quite like them.
I have a couple of sets that use these mega cases, and I've had none of the issues reported. The main thing for me is no overlapping disks and hubs that keep the disks in place without requiring too much effort to remove them.
My only slight grip is that when you have a separate shelf for keeping shows handy that you are currently watching, these take up more space then a single season at a time.
Has anyone ever done a comparison of the video quality between the UK PAL versions to the US NTSC versions. I have the PAL versions since they were so much cheaper. The only reason I would purchase these cheaper NTSC sets is if there is a noticeable improvement.
Exactly. My BR TOS set is in 2 "chunky," 7 disc cases and 1 "slim," 6 disc case. I thought that odd until I realized the disc count was different for S3 (S1=7, S2=7, S3=6). I'd have been quite happy had it been in a single Epik-Pak but at least it's standard cases instead of paperboard sleeves. I'm not crazy about overlapping discs in the Epik-Paks but that still beats some of the alternate methods of storage.
Same thing happened with the X-Files, which is where I first noticed it. All the seasons were six discs, except one, which was seven. That case was the chunkier one.
Here's a link to donate to the DS9 documentary in the works.
I wish there was a campaign to raise the money to do DS9-HD...
And the booklets are incredibly informative, at least on the all-in-ones of Barney Miller and The Bob Newhart Show (I have those): history and genesis of the show, and a complete episode breakdown (although there is one minor foulup on the Miller one, in that the first season's worth is shown to have 7 eps. on disc 1, and six on disc 2 [Shout! had adapted the original Sony releases for the first three seasons' worth, and that first Sony release had 9 eps. on disc 1, and four on disc 2]).
Attached is a scan of the pages of that erroneous arrangement...
It hasn't been mentioned here, but the DS9 documentary has requested CBS give them access to the show's film negative so they can include HD clips of the show in the documentary.

NO NEW NEWS ON DS9 IN HD.
That said, here is a great new interview with Ira Steven Behr:
I remain ever hopeful.
As I lay me down to sleep, I pray someone will change the name of this thread.
What should it be?
"Star Trek DS9 in HD: Nope never gonna happen Thread"?
Hope that is an appropriate improvement
I popped in "For the Uniform" on Friday night and, honestly, it didn't look horrible. Sure, I could tell the difference between the DVD and what the BD should be showing...but it's not awful. It can always be better...but I didn't want to run for the hills at the end of the episode.
Whoever changed the name of this thread, I want to buy you a beer!
I'll be in the U.K next year. Maybe I can take you up on that.
Ha - I actually live in North Carolina, so you might be able to get your beer sooner
I get to SC these days to visit family, but not NC so much. Maybe along the way next trip
Thanks. It's perfect.
Today is the 25th anniversary of the premiere of DS9. Variety has a lovely article on it:
