I don't know about the rest of you but out of all of the DVD boxed sets that I have purchased I have discovered that a majority of the sets that I purchase, oftentimes have at least one damaged disk included in the set. This rates for 70% of the boxed sets that I purchase and I purchase from a variety of sources. Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, Borders, Barnes and Noble, Columbia House and manya others. I don't blame the retail stores for this I place the blame solely on the hands of the studios and they are all to blame. Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, Paramount, BCI, CBS, First Look Entertainment, Sony Entertainment, 20th Century Fox ... I blame them because they don't spend the time checking the packaging for damaged cases, they just place the DVD's in the case because it's more cost effective to have the retail stores deal with returns, defective DVD's that have a myriad of scratches on the surface. Instead of defecting the disks out, they just ship them out, it saves the company on the bottom line. How many of you gently shake the DVD packaging to see if the DVD is loose? I know I do, because a DVD that has been jarred loose from inside the packaging is damaged, with 99% certainty. Retail stores no longer pull this defective merchandise from store shelves allowing the company, with full knowledge of this, to knowingly and deceptively sell damaged merchandise.
