I need to buy a bunch of new DVD cases to replace some damaged cases, snappers, box sets, etc.

I was wondering what the general favorite DVD case is. I personally like the Alpha style cases, but I don't really have anything against Amray cases. I want to go with one or the other though.

Also, what are some of the best places online to buy cases?

Thanks for any info you guys can provide!

Get Amarays and slimline 2-disc amarays.

I've found Alpha cases to be really difficult for removing discs. Their 2-disc cases are nice, but if you want to save space, use the slim dual amarays.

I like the hub on Amarays the best. The hubs on Alphas are a little clumsy to me, but if you want cases larger than two disc, Alpha is really your only choice. I have only bought cases once, and probably got enough to hold me quite a while. I got them from inetdvd.com. They have quite a selection, but the double slim Amarays are always very hard to get. i kind of prefer the double Alphas anyway.

Of course, you can also get artwork to replace your snappers at DVDCoverart.com.

Anyone ever order the Double DVD cases from Cyberdisk.org? From the picture, it looks to be the same case my copy of "A Beautiful Mind" came in, but I can't tell for sure. I'd be happy if it was, as I like that case design. (I'm wanting to get some slim double cases to replace a few double Alphas and some cardboard 2-disc cases (Harry Potter, Amelie, etc.) Here's the link: http://www.cyberdisk.org/doubledvdbox.html .
Many thanks

I did and I like them alot. I moved my Star Trek Directors Cut of TMP, TWOK and TSFS into those from the thick doubles they came in.

I just contacted Inetdvd about getting the slim double Amarays. I was informed that "They are back ordered for a year."

Doh!

Does anyone know if there's a name for the keepcase that is kind of similar to an Amaray but the hub is on a single thumb-like lever? Image seems to be using this one a lot these days.
