Default Disappointed in Harry Potter Boxed Set?

Is anyone disappointed in the box set? I don't know why they didn't enclose the regular packaged disks instead of the cheap carboard. Of which are two different sizes.

I love my boxset...The five movies look and sound the same as those that you buy individualy so I don't care what package they come in.

i put mine in normal cases anyway... the carboard cases fit the theme of the box set

the only thing i felt could have been better was the box itself.. they give us metal hinges and latch but a cheap box

I thought the cases in the set were supposed to represent the Journals of each year or something along those lines

I've got the UK editions myself, so no Box for me

Exactly! There was a nice theme to it. It was always known there would be no regular cases. That said I like both.

If the cardboard sleeves bother you that much you can buy blank HD DVD cases for $.60 each from here, then just print the inserts from here...

Wow... I was just wondering if there was anyplace to buy blank HD DVD cases! Thank you! Unfortunately those are the latch cases, which are my least favorite Can anyone attest to the quality? Are they the real deal?

Regarding HP, I went the individual disc route. Both because I wanted the individual cases/covers, and also cost. I paid ~$55 for all five between the BB bogo and Amazon bogo.

I wouldn't mind the cardboard cases as much if they would at least close properly. The plastic disc holder part (on mine) are too close to where the cover bends over, and prevents it from bending a full 90 degrees. The bookmarks are indeed awesome, at least.

That's not a bad idea. I wanted to be able to put the final two films in the case when they eventually come out and for them all to match. That is a good comprimise for just a few dollars more down the line. Thanks.
