For a long time I was a proponent of TV Product on this format. Having a pretty large library anything that shortened the amount of disks for long television series was welcomed. But a couple of things have happened since I formed that view. First I started putting my larger collections into Thinpaks and Multi Disk keep cases. There's new Slimpaks on the market that take up far less room and look and work great. Second I started buying and using some of these DVD-18's Mostly from Universal with their Galctica set and then the Monster Legacy set, and Franccccccccchise collections, and I don't like them. Handling the disks are problamatic, they are more suceptible to scuffing and scratching. I had to get a replacement on One Galactica set due to skipping and pixilization. Also I've had play issue on the abbott and costello set, they play great on my player, but I loaned them to my parents and some of the sides refused to play on their players. I just don't know if the manufacture of these disks are being kept to the same high level as DVD-9's or are they just prone to more defects. More and more TV Product is coming in this format and I'm split to where this is a good or bad thing.
