Default ECO-CASES- Coming to a catalog MGM/Fox title near you!

i've said it a hundred times, and i'll probably say it a few hundred more:

ECO-CASES SUCK. period. they're flimsy as hell, raising the possibility of a disc being dislodged or damaged in transit, or the case itself torn or bent askew. they flat suck.

so....older releases weren't going to be an issue, right? we were going to only suffer on the newer titles released by MGM/Fox? sadly, no. bargain hound that i am, i bought the battle of britain/bridge too far double pack from Costco (2 blus, 24 bucks, hell ya). opened 'em up, and got a normal case on battle, but a god damn eco case on bridge.

now i have the fun job of waiting until i get a trade/sale, and dumping the case on them. all for the name of someone saving money under the facade of going "green" and "eco-friendly"

Eco-Cases are such bullshit.

Every company is using being "environmentally friendly" as a ruse to skimp on quality.

Just look at water bottles. They're flimsy as hell now. It's terrible, eco-cases need to go.

Oh great, so that'll be another thing I'll have to ask people I'm trading with/buying from. Nice!

Umm, those thin paper ones are pretty cool, because if done right, they mimic vinyl.

Yeah I prefer digipacks a lot over jewel cases.

Of course I prefer Vinyl over CDs, though.

Eco-case =

The white part is the back of the artwork.

And I agree with the sentiment here..... eco-cases just plain suck.
