[QUOTE=THE C.;2058849]Oh well could be worse right. Try using Pro Sleeves.[/QUOTE]
The CDs ripped fine, but does bending them like that damage the disk?
And wikipedia says
An opposite problem is the tabs which hold the liner notes in place; sometimes, especially with larger booklets, the tabs grip the booklet too tightly, leading to tearing. Likewise, when replacing the booklet it can get snagged and crumple up or rip. As noted above some CD releases have only two tabs, which allows the booklet to be easily removed and replaced (at the small cost of the booklet sometimes falling out if held the wrong way).
So they basically want the disk and manual damaged when sold to you, so you will keep buying them again? Like the LPs in the past?
The CDs and cases are virtually free to manufacture, selling for 15-20 dollars I think they can afford to make higher quality CDs and cases. The cases in the local computer store at 30 cent retail value are very high quality, the companies are probably too cheap to use them.
Edit: Do the sleeves scratch the CDs?
