please can we have less packaging on DVD's. A simple envelope is enough so long as the lable is good & we could all help save the earth & my bookshelf space ! PS anyone want a nice set of Ti scali disk coasters for their coffee & tea ? Immer
(in fact the main reason) that the DVD cases were introduced (by the industry, not by us) was so that they could be easily distinguished from CDs when on a shelf. It has nothing to do with perceived value.
The DVD box format is used by Microsoft for all it's software, and personally I prefer it.
I have PCA discs going back several years & should be brave & chuck them out along with my Sinclair48k but just am an inveterate horder. The box on the DVD is far too big for what it is. It's no better than my kellogs box that seems to only be half full from new, but what else can you do with a DVD box...(store in the kellogs box perhaps....!)
Rather than waste plastic all they need to do is slap on the letters DVD, large and plain. Well what ever the reason it's still not ecological to have oversized packaging for anything. Plus as the original post says: takes up to much space.
I keep most of my cover disks also, some of the older proggies are better than their upgraded versions as they don't have all the unwanted addons.
Agree with FE re packaging, does make life easier as the printed mag price is usually so small and unreadable (ageing eye, lol)that it would be easy to pickup the wrong version only to find out at the checkout.
