Where can I find some good blu-ray case replacements?

Where can I find some good quality blu-ray replacement cases?

I know there is casetopia.com but reading a review from a buyer he mentioned that the Viva Elite 12m double disc cases are super thin and flimsy and that quality has gone down (http://www.casetopia.com/Viva_Elite_.../br2-elite.htm). I don't know if this reviewer is smoking crack but to me all blu ray cases are flimsy. I just want to discard the cases I have with eco friendly bullshit holes on them so the cover does not get punctured.

Yeah I know, and there are tons there by different manufacturers. I was kinda hoping I would get some responses from buyers that have bought good cases/good prices etc.

I havent bought from them in a while, but I have gotten a ton of cases from http://www.genesysdtp.com/dvdbox.htm . Been very happy with the pricing and the quality of the cases.

Iíve bought from Casetopia via EBay. The product is good, but they factor in shipping into the case prices, so it ends up being kind of expensive if you donít buy 5 or more.

All cases, both DVD and blu-ray, have become flimsy since they started pushing the "eco" crap.

Compare an old DVD case from the late 90s/early 00s, and they feel like a brick compared to newer ones. Even the early blu-ray cases were thick.

If you're in Canada, here are some good cases. They are not the flimsy junk. They have no "eco-holes" and the hubs hold the disc in tight. They are also designed to not dent the trap sheet cover.

Yup. I noticed that yesterday when I was browsing their ebay listings.

If youíre stockpiling, however, theyíre worth it.

Bought a bunch from them so I could replace cases during the heyday of Blockbusterís used sales. Continued to buy from them while I turned separate Blu-rays and DVDs into custom two-disc combos, since they sell both singles and doubles in mix-and-match bundles. Itís nice to have a few extra around anyway, in case you get a ganked one in the mail or if one gets wavy due to shrink-wrapping.

I've purchased these before for the that exact same reason. Good quality thickness without being too expensive.

Can't stand those eco cases. I use the eco cases to give discs away to friends.

Re: Where can I find some good blu-ray case replacements?

I bought 50 Viva Elite double blu-ray cases not too long ago from Discmakers, got a really good price. Had to email them for a quote on 50, their quantities go from 25 to 100. Wanted more than 25 but less than 100...

They're really easy to deal with, have great prices. I like the Viva Elite cases, they're really well made, solid cases. I checked each one for any defects or problems, there were none on any of the 50, even though the packaging made me nervous.....didn't need to be. I ordered the double cases because I have more BD/DVD combos than single BDs, and even the single BDs ride nice in these.

I can vouch for Discmakers. Very solid to deal with as a company.

I think I've bought all my cases from Casetopia, but yes they get pricey in smaller quantities

I went with Discmakers 25 cases for $10.75 is not too shabby. I needed a few single cases but I got them all double instead.

Received the cases the next day. That's what I call good service. All cases appear to be excellent. Cheap and flimsy and disposable, but much better than the eco crap cases.
