Case Logic DVD binders (also called "wallets") will not hold 200 separate movies -- it can hold 200 separate DISKS. This is important to note because many people are confused by this difference. Look at the number of liner notes it will hold -- that is the number of clear-view pockets you'll have available, one per movie. For example, this model will hold 92 individual movie "sets", meaning each movie will have it's own clear-view pocket and sleeves for storing the disks.

So where does the number 200 come from? There are two disk sleeves for each clear-view pocket (92 clear-view pockets x 2 disk sleeves per pocket brings the running total of available storage up to 184). This arrangement means that you'll either have an empty sleeve for movies with only one disk. And this will probably be the case for most of your movies. But this extra sleeve will come in handy if any of your movies have a separate special-feature disk or are in two parts (like the Lord of The Rings extended editions, which are on 2 disks each). With this system you can store those disks in the extra sleeve.

An additional non-removable disk-only storage area (with 16 slots) is located in the front of the binder, bringing the total disk storage capacity to 200. So this binder really will hold 200 disks -- or you can use it as a movie library, in which case it will hold 92 individual movie sets plus 16 disks in the additional storage area (useful for storing homemade DVDs and other disks that don't come with artwork).

***HERE'S A TIP: I noticed that a few people complained about not being able to browse their movies very easily because the disks are hidden inside their sleeves and often times movies don't come with liner notes for the clear-view pocket. A little creativity can solve this problem and turn these binders into a fantastic movie library.

Instead of leaving the clear-view pocket empty or just putting the liner notes in it, put the movie cover art in there. Remove the wrap-around cover art from the case -- it's really easy to remove if you open the DVD case flat -- just reach in and pull out the paper cover art. Fold it in half and stick it in the clear-view pocket of the binder. If there are liner notes (some DVDs don't have them) we just put them behind the movie cover art.

Now put the matching DVD in the sleeve behind it and repeat this for all your movies. That's it! You've just created a visually appealing, easy-to-browse movie library. You can flip through the binder and look at the full-color covers of all the DVDs you have, similar to looking at DVDs in a video store.

This also solves another dilemma: Even after they place their movies into a binder, some people keep all the empty plastic DVD cases because they want to save them for the coverart. Instead, just use the coverart in your binder's clear-view pocket and you can get rid of those empty plastic cases for good.

***HINT: If you have a DVD case with cardboard artwork that does double-duty as the case cover, just remove the cardboard piece from the plastic frame and separating the front cover art from the back cover art but cutting it in half. You might need to trim them a little, but both pieces will now fit in the clear pocket.

This DVD storage system is much better than storing plastic DVD cases on the shelf or in a drawer because you can only see the DVD's side, which is a slim edge that just contains the movie's title. It's much easier and more fun to browse movies when you can look at the cover, which often has a picture of the actors and other information. When we have friends and family come over for movie nights they think it's really neat to look through our binders.

These binders fit neatly on a bookshelf or they can be stored file-folder style in a drawer near your entertainment system.

***SAVE MONEY: Case Logic makes additional storage pages (refill packs) so you can to keep adding to your binder. However, it's usually cheaper to just purchase a new binder when your collect grows. For example, this 200 capacity binder is generally available for less than $35 and it has room for 92 movie sets. The most popular refill pack generally costs $12 and only has room for 10 movie sets. I'd have to buy over $100 in refill packs to get the same amount of storage that this $35 dollar binder can provide.

***ORGANIZING: For heavy collectors and those with a growing collection, don't try to alphabetize your DVDs -- this will get tiresome and difficult. Instead, just add movies to the binder as you get them and start a computer database of where each one is located, for example "Mission Impossible III -- Binder A -- Pocket 35". You can use Excel or Google Spreadsheet to create a quick & easy list that can be sorted by title or binder collection. This way you don't need to worry about trying to place them in the binder in alphabetical order. You can print out the list for each binder as it gets full and place it inside the binder for quick reference when you just want to browse, but you'll also have the interactive list on your computer in case you want to find a particular movie really fast.

It is a binder. It holds many DVDs. Does it hold 200? Well, that depends on how you're counting, actually. The pages have pockets on one side for liner notes and pockets on the other side for your DVDs. This comes out to one liner note per two DVDs. So, if you've several of those 2-DVD sets that seem to be the norm these days, then in the end you're only going to get 100 movies (2 DVDs each) in this folder. Simple as that.

Also, many DVDs just don't have liner notes. They might have a catalog of other DVDs from the same studio or maybe a slip of glossy paper with track listings, but that's about it. In those cases, you'll be wanting to slide out the wrap-around "cover" from the DVD case, fold it just so, then place it in your folder. Will this make unsightly creases in the "cover," should you unfold it back? Sure. But are you going to be placing the DVD back in the plastic DVD case, ever? If not, then why worry?

Long story short, if you're of a mind to reduce the space taken up by all of your DVD cases, then this is a very capable solution. A stack of DVDs as tall as the average human can be packed easily and safely into one of these binders and stacked on a shelf. It's not bad-looking, either.

I saw this DVD wallet in best buy a few days ago. It is really nice, but BEWARE... it only truly holds 50 titles. The 80 refers to some of the movies taking two DVDs for one title.

This case is great but it only holds 25 DVD's with liner notes some sleeves hold 2 dvds (good for those 2 dvd sets). The pages are removable so that makes them easy to travel with or loan to friends. The whole things takes up less space than 6 regular DVD cases and it zippers up so it stays neat. It has similar dimensions to a reqular DVD case so it would probably fit on the same shelf. It is made of a black leather like material so it looks great too!

I really love the space savings of this storage system, although the 140 disc capacity can be misleading. The 140 capacity includes 16 slots on the inside surface of the cover (billed for 'easy access' to favorite discs, but also handy for storing a multi-disc set or two). Each of the 31 pages of Pro-sleeve storage has two storage pockets on one side (easily holding a DVD case insert or 2, or with folding, a DVD box liner). On the other side of each page, there are 4 slots to store discs. The design works well for keeping a DVD and bonus disc together with its package insert on each half page, with capacity for 62 DVD 2-disc sets using this arrangement.

The soft rubbery material of the pages hold the discs snugly. The two slots on each half-page are of different depths, with one covering most of the disc's surface and the other covering about half. The shallower pockets allow some of the disc label to show, making it easier to see which disc is in which pocket.

The binder system allows individual pages to be removed and re-inserted, but the design makes the process cumbersome. Plastic straps pass through two slots in each page and lock into the binder. Removal or insertion of a page involves unlocking the system (unsnapping a heavy snap - a potential breakdown area with repeated use) and withdrawing the straps from all of the pages between the lock and the desired page, then reinserting the straps through all of the other pages before locking the system again. Extra pages are available for purchase in sets of 10, making it a little easier to re-organize contents. Even though I have packed some of the pockets with layers of inserts, there seems to be room for several more pages in each case.

An older version of this case had a space in the handle for a label (allowing multiple storage cases to be marked for range of contents, for example), but the current ones do not.

All in all, the system allows for compression of DVDs and packaging in about one fifth of the space.

I really need binders that can hold more discs as my collection grows and as so many new DVD releases are multiple disc sets, so I was really hyped about the release of this new 80-disc binder. Boy was I DISAPPOINTED.

I bought mine at a local retailer. But before purchasing it, I noticed that the binder came with two types of sleeves: 10 each of the old 2-disc design and 15 each of the new 4-disc design. I thought the binder was tampered with, so I started to inspect at least 6 other binders and found the same allocation of sleeves in each of them. So instead of potentially storing 100 discs (25 sleeves x 4 dics/sleeve), I'm left with only 80 max. At least it was accurately advertised as an 80-disc binder, but wouldn't it be better if it held 100? BUT, the bad thing is that the dimensions of the 2-disc and the 4-disc sleeves are different, with the 2-disc sleeve being between 1/4" to 1/2" shorter on a given side. So if you have the 2 types of sleeves interspersed in your binder, you may easily miss some of your discs stored in the shorter sleeves when you flip through it.

I bought the binder anyways. It wasn't until I started using the binder at home that I found really bad things about the new 4-disc sleeves that just totally irritated me. The openings for you to insert the discs are so minimally cut out that the only way you can take a disc out of the sleeve is to GRAB the disc with your fingers, causing fingerprints and possibly even scratches on the surface. To make matters worse, the sleeves have notches in them that I am guessing were designed to hold the disc in place so that the disc doesn't fly out while you flip through the binder. But these notches hold the disc so tightly that they make you have to GRAB the disc even harder to remove it from the sleeve. The old sleeves, though not perfect, were designed much better because the cutouts were large enough for you to stick your forefinger into the disc's hole and slip the disc out by its edges.

My only option now is to hope the current Case Logic designers are replaced with more talented and creative ones soon because my DVD collection just got bigger with the new Star Wars release.

This case is great for dvd's. It is easy to slip the covers (fold in half) into the slot. Also, holds 2 disks, which makes it convenient for the dvd extras disk. Unfortunately, it is the prosleeve style, which makes it difficult to move around the sheets. I have decided to order more and just type a titles and volume page to more easily locate the dvd's in each case.

This is the best case out there for those who are getting tired of all of those darn DVD cases and racks!

At first, my wife bought the Handstands and Allsops for Xmas for me to try out....I thought they were nice, but I have 800 DVDs. I would have needed ~40 of either of these to store both the cover art and the discs, which would have been $$$. I found the Case Logic case, bought it, got it, filled it, and love it. The only thing I don't like is that when I want to insert a page, I have to remove all pages ahead of it, which is a little bit of a pain. However, the design of this thing uses NO binders rings, which everyone hates, right? Instead, it uses hefty straps. Also, the front of this thing has slots for a bunch of discs, so this area could act as a queue that when full, would trigger a re-org of the binder in one big swoop instead of each time I get a new DVD.

We collect a lot of DVD's! I was quite excited to file them in this system. We have a smaller version that DOES have the three rings. Huge mistake in changing that. It is extremely difficult to file in DVD's in this storage system (the smaller one is great). Also, to ensure the movie is protected we like to place the whole sleeve on top of the player and then refile after viewing. Can't do that with this system. Buy the pages individually and put them in your own three ring binder.

Case Logic has completely changed the DVB-40. It now holds only 21 liner notes instead of 25, and 48 DVDs instead 40. Every page holds two discs, which is kind of a waste since a good number of DVDs only come with one disc, and there are six slots on the front which I still haven't found a use for. They've also replaced the 3 metal rings with some band thing which makes it difficult to remove the pages. To the outside they've added brown thread which I don't particularly like. It's still a space saver, but no longer as convenient or stylish as it once was. I'll be finding another DVD Wallet when it's time to expand my collection.
