How do you store your DVD's?

Do you leave them in the cases or put them in a wallet?  What is the best brand to get if I should go the wallet route?  How do you store yours?

I'm just trying to find the most effective way to take care of them...

In their cases on a shelf I converted from a bookshelf. A triumph of engineering.
It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

From what I heard, Case Logic (as well as any wallet) are bad for CD's in the long run and that it scratches them a little everytime you take them out of the sleeve, also the pressure of the DVDs laying on top of each other warps the data.

I'm just checking to see if anyone knows if that holds true or anything.

Very true. I put all of my dvd's into case logic cases and I had them done alfabetically (sorry I can't spell) so every time I got a new dvd I had to move the others to make one space for the new one in the case logic. After awile some of them got scuffed but from then on I took care of them and started to put them back in the cases. My copy of The Maltese Falcon, The Big Lebowski, and Fight Club were scratched so I had to clean those.

That's exactly what happened to me.  As soon as they finish building my house, I'm going to transfer all my DVD's from the case logic binder and build a shelf to hold all my DVD's... in their cases... Never store your DVD's in CD cases.

Off topic, Walrus, try to be a little more original with your avatars.  Thanks.

I wouldn't recommend putting your DVDs in a wallet simply because you can easily lose your entire collection in one swoop.

It scratched my DVDs up as well.  It's best to have them in their cases in a bookshelf.  I have some DVD Wallets for when I travel.
