Basic question here. Even though CD is not my preferred format, I wonder what would you prefer when it comes to present the final product, and why.

Personally I find Digipacks more aesthetically appealing, but on the other hand these are more expensive to press, and tend to get damaged more easily / sooner.

Iím fine with anything really but if given a choice I always go for jewelcase unless thereís extra art/notes for another version. A5 digipaks can be cool

Digibooks, hardbacks, special editions etc. Jewel-cases (and most of modern digipak parodies) in 2018 are for plebeians (well, probably, with exception of ones with $5 price tag, but that's formal excuse). If I buy material release I need an art-object, music can be cynically downloaded for free. Laughing If the band/label do not put effort into release they deserve to get fucked. That's iniquity of life. Twisted Evil

If there's no difference between the track listings, jewel case is a no-brainer pick.

I accidentally voted for digipak...haha...those could be the worst idea anyone has ever had. Why any label would choose to use them or any collector could possibly prefer them just boggles my mind.

Digipak's are cool as hell. If it wasn't for terrible aging, they'd be my preferred format. Bring them out to your car or let a friend borrow them and it's game over. That being said, I wouldn't NOT order a new CD just because it was a digipak.

Agree. If it's a fucking digipack it doesn't leave my house. Been a heap recently which is annoying as they don't get playtime in the car. New Archgoat a real pain in the arse in that respect.

JEWEL CASE! I will actually NOT buy a CD sometimes if it's only in digipak format. I hate them that much. They are so easy to fuck up and damage by accident. Fuck digipaks. I especially hate when the booklet is contained in a little slit when you open the flap. They always fall out! And the worst are the cheap ones with no booklet that just open up and that's it. So lame and flimsy.

Both packagings have their different advantages. Of course jewelcase is superior on many ways and the biggest is the possibility of changing broken cases or taking it off for shipping.

Little suprised to see so adament opposition for digipaks. I get it that the digis can get broken and are much more prone to damage overall.

Jewel Case all the way baby!
Hope label owners take note.


What I hate even more than fragile digipacks are the irreplaceable super jewel cases with the needlessly weird back cover cut.
A5 cases and other such needless bubbles can go get fucked too.

Digipack definitely, although I don't like the ones with just one page. I really like how they look and booklets can even be included if needed.
