Shitty Cardboard dvd case.

Postby PWGuru » Tue Sep 06, 2011 11:15 am

If any of you got the new "PWG Eight" dvd you already know that HS have started to use a cheap ass cardboard case for the dvd, so i wrote HS and voiced my complaint and was told that 95% liked the new case type and they would more then likly continue that way with future dvds.

Now i'm finding that hard to believe as how can people like a case that breaks easiely and would hardly stand the hand of time so i urge all of you that feel the same like me to mail HS and tell them how you feel and lets nip this in the butt.

PWG is my favorite promotion and i have every single dvds from 04 till now and this new case really ruins my mood as a collector :(

Maybe it's an eco friendly thing.

I tell you what I hate. When the dvd cases don't have name of the show on the spine. That is annoying.

These are actually a higher quality/more expensive product than we used before. There are two extra panels with printing on them, and the printing is right on the case. They are much more professional looking than the standard DVD cases. We plan on using these for all of our releases. The name of the show is smaller, but still on the spine.

My own pictures:

Showing the thickness of the spine. Obviously, the Card Subject to Change III DVD is a regular DVD case. The new Digipacks case is about half the size.

Image

The inside cover now features a color photo of an action scene. In this case, Kevin Steen package piledriving Claudio.

Image

Another attempt to show how thin the actual protection part of the case is.
------------------------

If the cases were just thicker, they'd be perfect. However, with how flimsy they are, they're not offering a lot of protection.

With no real way of closing it and expecting it to stay closed.

This is the standard size for DVD digipaks. We understand your concerns with the size, but standard DVD cases are just as fragile since they are made of plastic. We use padded shipping envelopes to ship all of our DVD's so nobody should have any issues that aren't already associated with shipping DVD's across the country.

I only bought mine from Highspots, so this may be something I need to address with them, but my DVD only came in a thin white on the outside, gray on the inside plastic sleeve. Besides protecting it from any sort of spills that could happen during the shipping, it didn't offer any other support.

Maybe its just a cost cutting measure. Maybe we'll see more of this with other promotions. I prefer the usual case but even thats a small preference.

Again, these are more expensive for us to get made. There is more printing involved and the printing is done directly on the case, as well as shrink wrapping. They are a more professional choice, which we think will appeal to more people.

That might be but with a standard plastic case people can replace it when something happens to it without any problems, i had HS send me a new case since first one got damaged in shipping and i doubt that if lets say new one breaks down the line that HS will ship me another one.

Digipack is way more easy to get bent, torn, worn etc it won't stand the test of time but okay if you feel like continuing with the new case i'll simply stop supporting PWG then cause i simply don't like the new case.

Sorry to be so harsh but thats just how i feel.

honestly, I'll continue to support on whatever PWG does and I hope PWG continues to do what's best for them instead and continues to do digipaks, since I have several DVD that use digipaks anyways, instead of listening to fans who continue to bitch about a small situation and even threatening to stop supporting the company about it plus I've actually had issues that the plastic cases in several of my DVDs (including PWG DVDs) and games have been broken and torn than my DVD that are in digipaks

remember VHSs? aw, good times. i bring that up cuz the card subject to change DVD case looks so much bigger in comparison to the eight case, but a VHS would have to be way bigger. this has nothing to do with what you're talking about, just a random thought.

I like the new cases. They take up less room, look sharp and I like the addition of photos inside. The only thing I'd like to see improved upon is getting the DVDs out sooner after each show if possible (yeah, like you haven't heard THAT before). Regardless though, I will be a first day buyer whenever a new show is released. PWG is pretty much my Crack and I need my fix!
