What CD disk packaging you prefer

Question for those who buy / collects original CD disks.

I selected option 5.

This question has been on my mind long since I started CD DJing. What the hell to do with all the CD cases?

My CD collection long passed the stage where I can keep it on display in some fancy CD holders….
I keep all my CD-disks in soft CD wallets and end up with lots of packaging to throw out.

From jewel cases I take out all the art work with tracklist and stick in inside CD wallets together with CD disk and throw away plastic case.

Digipacks are bit difficult to get art work out. So if there is no DJ insert I just photocopy back side with tracklist and….. keep the actual digipack cos of the cool artwork!
I think they look nice and I cannot force myself to throw them away 8-) --- I have few boxes with them on the attic already!

Paper sleeve is easy to cut art work out and put inside CD-wallet

Digipack for sure
And with the more Stickers, posters, collecting items it is possible to pack in inside :roll

I totally understand your point Vic, and is indeed a big massive point.

With the path it is taking, soon you can buy only the tracks that you want of any artist album or VA, and then you just burn them, so the space wont be a problem anymore

Can't choose between digipack/jewel case, both has good sides. Digipack looks more like an artwork piece, so i second Fungusok on most points.
Another thing i try not to use original discs at work, to keep em safe, making own discs with CD-text (for CDJ display)

Thank you all for votes and comments.

Overall digipacks look like a prefered choice for most of us, however they are the most expensive to manufacture :|

i prefer always digipack, also most of the jewel case cds being send to me are damaged, sometimes even the cds are getting damaged :S
also the paper is too tiny and it's getting damaged sometimes :)
so all votes for digipack :)
i will try to make digipacks for my cd releases from active meditation music, even the cost of making them is double then the jewel pack
but everybody download pirated mp3's now, who cares about original copies anyway :(
