How many sleeves can each binder hold?

EDIT - I see they hold 20-25. At £8.95 per binder and £5 per 20 sleeves it'd be pretty expensive for someone like myself who has around 700 DVDs. Around £490 doing a quick calculation! Yikes. They do look very nice and tidy though.

Yup, thats why I'm giving the binders a miss for now, will take a look around to see if I can see any at a more reasonable price in stationery shops etc, or I may just file them in drawers/storage boxes.

i couldn't really contemplate putting my dvds in binders, i like to have them all on display. To me that'd be like collecting hot toys models and putting them all in a drawer. I am pretty much out of space at the moment, with 3 bookcases and 2 shelving units full of dvd's, hd-dvd's and blu rays, but at some point i'll buy another bookcase or two and rearrange my room to fit them all in. I would have done so already but i keep telling myself i'm going to move house but never get around to doing anything about it..

Thanks for the pics, they do look good. I'm guessing price is going to be an issue here, last count I had 3000 DVDs

Well... I'm still no further forward

Probably flight cases (as I'm not spending more on storage than the value of the contents). So it is either Hama or Neo. Any recommendations?

i did move house in the end btw, and now I have 5 bookcases, all of which are totally full up.. not really enough room for a 6th one either! I do also have a bunch of neca/mcfarlane 18" figures but they've been in their boxes since i moved as I have nowhere to put them either..

Bump!

Well, some time has passed... and I'm still not sorted! I had to get an extra Billy bookcase

Has anyone found any issues with scratches on DVDs in binders? I've been reading around and found a few negative comments about the sleeve linings not being as soft as the pouches from LoveFilm. Some people are concerned about warping if over stuffing binders. Some have commented that, however nice, they still look like 1980s photo albums

I suspect I'll be going with flight cases but with the added expense of slimline CD cases to hold the discs rather than the supplied inserts.

Really, don't stress so much. Say a disc gets scratched - what will it cost you if it becomes unplayable? A quid? And that's only if it becomes unplayable - which is unlikely.

If your collection is like everyone else's, it's gonna be a handful of rarities and a ******** of run-of-the-mill stuff that you can replace if need be.

Nah, my collection is bat **** crazy

It isn't a question of stressing. I just want to be certain about which option I choose rather than spunking away a wad of cash I could've spent... on BDs!

It is the run of the mill tat I'll be putting in these things (I do have some) but I don't understand the logic of spending 30 - 50 quid on a storage solution if I have to replace everything I put in it. I could cut out the middle man and bin them all now and just buy them again when I want to watch them

well, if it's simple storage then start the mammoth task of digitising your collection and stick the hard copies in storage. digital storage is inevitable as in the future all digital media will be downloaded/streamed/cloud based. you can argue the time frame for this till your blue in the face, but it IS inevitable. the people who argue against don't understand that they will not be the major target demographic in 15-20 years, it will be their children and they have a very different attitudes to media and its acquisition and storage, even now.

Bump!

Quick question for those with the Neo cases. Do the sleeves scratch your discs?

Not in my experience; I have been using them for years but I am careful when taking them out and put them back. Looking at it another way even a dvd case itself could cause damage to the disc, especially those double amaray cases with the removable tray. I have lost a few discs to cracked inner rings due to those things.

No storage system is perfect but the Neo cases do take up less space

Great. Cheers!

One thing I am planning on doing is picking up a pack of BD inner trays.

All those DVDs we have since replaced on BD but are afraid to get rid of, just in case there are missing extras or scenes or audio cues. I'm going to make all my BDs double play editions! The space is already there

Handy tip from AVForums.

So, I was all sorted out and I explained it all to my pops who then pointed to a bookcase full of audio CDs and asked "How many CDs are on there then?". I replied 100s. "So, why don't you just put them in CD cases and but them on your bookcases?"

I think he may be onto something...

You can get jewel cases and armaray cases that are as thin as a CD case so you only gain the saved vertical space of using a CD jewel case.

True but I'd have to trim covers as they are too wide. CD cases are transparent so I would not have to faff around making labels etc. I can see the discs through the cases.

I think I can get double on each shelf which would half the space needed.

Jewel cases for DVD/BD and slim armarays are also transparent. A jewel case is what your CDs come in, DVD ones are just taller:

DVD Jewel case | slim amaray.
