steelbooks are a trademark design basically a metal DVD or blu ray case. Not to be confused with a metal case or tin pack. They tend to be more of a collectors item vs something most people buy to watch IMO. Most Steelbooks are region specific. Meaning they are localized like only available in Germany or Japan or the UK or USA or Canada etc. They are also sold by specific retailers making them exclusives. Some cases Steelbooks can be found in multiple regions like The 3 new Bond Steelbooks that are avail through amazon only in the in the USA I have heard that a Canadian store similar to best buy called future shop has the rights to sell them. Best Buy in the USA has the rights to sell the 1st 6 bonds Blus in steelbooks.

Because of the collect-ability you find several people cleaning out B&M stores just to throw them up on Ebay or amazon and jacking up the price. Most of the coolest DVDs I have gotten in steelbooks I had to buy on Ebay because they were futureshop exclusives not available in the USA and the Futureshop website doesnt mail internationally.

also in regards to inetvideo they are a market place seller here on amazon too. I dont know how to look up a persons store but I know I bought from them long before I found out they had their own website. To those who are skeptical if you know how to look up a store in the marketplace reading feedback left by others here might make you feel more at ease. Id suggest joining their mailing list when you order because once in a while they do a free shipping deal when out place an order over $50. Thats when I buy box sets lol.

anyone see anything?

Anybody know any deals on empty blu-ray cases? I tried Sleevetown, but their shipping costs is more than the cases themselves.

Iceman, not much new happening this week in terms of deals. But overall, in comparison to last year, prices have fallen much faster,and both B&M and online stores are running more frequent, and more aggressive sales.

Per some rumbling around the net, Deepdiscount will have their semi-annual 20-25% off sale, which often beats anyone else's prices because it includes their entire DVD and BD inventory. Other than that, I'd say watch the forums, including this thread for other promos. Have fun browsing!

thanks i was aware of that.
Frys this week was weak on its deals on blu-ray

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 16, 2009 1:39:01 PM PDT
Iceman-yes, the retailers have sales every other week or so. Then some weeks they have to have "normal" price, as margins on media is very thin-they make money with qty. Guess we'll just have to stay tuned! Please post when you see something worthwhile, as I am sure others will do. Have a great week!

Amazon has a sale on the king kong BD for 14.99. Not bad, IMO.

Onix-thanks for sharing this!

As the OP, and dual format owner, I'd like to share an opportunity for those still finishing their HD DVD collection.

Our 2500+ member hi-def group list owner has negotiated a special perk to purchase the "Living Landscapes Collection", shot in hi-def, and containing 9 discs that sell at Amazon for $25/piece + a Bonus HD DVD disc for 75% off.

Two purchase options exist and these are "limited pressing" sets. Perks like these, group buys, contests, reviews, etc, are just some features in our discussion group. If you'd like to purchase a set, and join a fun, all format movie discussion group, enter "digital babe", at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/thebombshelter/ and say hello. I am a moderator there, and manage our "deals" links area, with input from all of our members.
Stay tuned for more Blu-Ray deals!

Anyone that is interested in the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Steelbook, to be released shortly-Amazon has pulled the "Steelbook" case, and so far, it seems to be a play.com (UK Retailer) exclusive. If you purchase Steels, you'll need to find a group buy, led by a UK member, as they don't ship to the US. The cover is printed, not stickered.

Problem with Friday the 13th (2009):

With my player (Panasonic BD30), the movie just starts as soon as disc is booted up, however I don't know which version is playing, the theatrical cut or the extended cut. And going through the settings and whatnot, there isn't anywhere you can click to pick which version you want to see. Am I missing something? Anyone with any info on that would be appreciated....

Re: Problem with Friday the 13th (2009)

Never mind, I figured it out....

FYI-B&N have been cancelling orders for Band of Brothers. I suspect because people used a coupon code in conjunction with the B2G1 (and people were ordering 3, hoping to unload 2 on Ebay). Good Luck if you got your order through! I deleted my post, which got the info from SD, to avoid further confusion.

inetvideo is offering 50% off shipping costs, not the price of the videos.

@Digital Babe,

Regarding Columbia House: I joined and have received my initial selections. Today, Tuesday, they have the buy 2, get 2 free deal. Is that deal on every Tuesday? Also, do they ever have better deals than buy 2, get 2 free, like buy 1, get 1 free or??? If you could please let me know, that would be appreciated. I have four sitting on the checkout page which they come out to $17.75 each with shipping (all are $30 selections) and that seems pretty good but before I do this, I just want to make sure that in the next few days they won't have a better deal (at least as far as you know)...

Hey Zombie,

In the past they've had BOGO's, but there is no way of telling if they will again, or if they will soon. It comes down to if you want to wait, or jump in on a future sale, too. Selling media is all about leveraging margin, so they have to do a B2G2 in addition to other sales, as not to erode already thin margin on discs. I work for a major distributor. The $ the retailers make is based on qty, not per disc sales. Good Luck, deciding! If you are ok with the price/disc, I'd say give it a shot.

wait is Columbia House doing blus now?

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 30, 2009 12:29:35 PM PDT
@AnimeGod981

With Columbia House, you need to select 5 standard DVDs for 49 cents each with shipping (right now it's free shipping). Then, once you are a member, then most of their deals will apply to blu-ray discs as well. But you have to select at least 5 standard def DVDs to join. I just selected stuff to sell on eBay so that way, now that I am a member, I can enjoy the benefits with the blu discs...
