? RE: Smallville CS Packaging

Has any one picked this up yet and do the discs get as scratched removing them as I've heard/read about or is it really not that bad?
Thanks for any info!

Re: ? RE: Smallville CS Packaging

I don't own this set, but just had a look at the stock photo. It appears to be two hardback books, with 2 DVD's inserted into the front and back of each cardboard page. I have a Rocky & Bullwinkle set with similar packaging.

There is likely enough friction on the disks so they won't fall out if you turn a book upside down. But this means that unless you're very careful, there will be light scratching on each DVD when they're removed or inserted. (Maybe the pages loosen a bit over time?) You could try turning the book upside down, on an angle, with the data side of the disks facing up and flexing the page from the sides, hoping gravity pulls them out. As I watch each R&B season I store the disks in alternate packaging, but it's hard finding nice multi-DVD cases and R&B is just 18 disks. I can hardly imaging doing this for 62 disks!

I won't say to not buy it, particularly if there's some extra material not included in the season sets, or if the price is much better. If you want to protect your investment and expect to watch certain seasons/episodes regularly, though, you should probably consider alternate long-term storage. Hope that helps.
