Where to buy HD DVD Cases?

Did a search with no luck? Does anyone know where I can buy HD DVD Cases? I need about 20 of them. I did try asking a few Hollywood videos and Blockbuster's with no luck.

Why not just buy Blu-ray cases? Isn't the only difference the color?

By the way, I found some at meritline.

Re: Where to buy HD DVD Cases?

ok Fry's had a 10-pack for $7.99. Now I need two, two-disc holder cases and a holder for the 5-disc Blade Runner on HD DVD. Anyone know where I could get these cases?

Who has the cheapest shipping for blu-ray cases? I hate having to register just to find out how much it is with shipping.

Re: Where to buy HD DVD Cases?

What pisses me off is they're on ebay, but always as a set, and always with kind of expensive shipping. NOBODY sells just one! I also need at least one that can actually hold two discs. Not sure if any of the ones on ebay do that.

There is a seller on ebay that sells 10 for $10.78 shipped or just 1 for $3.89 shipped.

I can't see spending $3.89 for the one I need, but I don't need 10.

Re: Where to buy HD DVD Cases?

yeah that's the thing. can't see spending almost the cost of a entirely new disc for just the cost of its case.

Double HD cases are hard to find and are rarely cheap. I'd recommend "MacGuyver-ing" your way through with a standard HD case and a Memorex DVD hub (you can buy them in 5-packs at WalMart for $4 or so). Peel off a hub and stick it inside the case on the side facing the spindle. Offset it up/down slightly so the two hubs don't line straight up - prevents either of them from releasing a disc when you snap the case closed.

I've done that for my Blade Runner set (moved the 5 discs to 3 cases) and I repackaged my Star Trek TOS S1 10-disc set into 5 cases the same way. Here's one of the covers I worked up for the latter:

Kinda funny...with Krogers deal you can actually get the movies for "free" since they are $1 or $2.

Re: Where to buy HD DVD Cases?

I agree. sounds like a good compromise.

Now where to get a single case for like a dollar without having to pay 3 dollars for shipping?
