Fantastic/How to get the discs out,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bond 50: The Complete 22 Film Collection [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This James Bond Blu Ray collection is a fantastic box set that will appeal to both the casual and serious Bond fan. There are so many great films in this collection, many of which are quite expensive if bought separately ($25-$30 each for a fair amount of the titles.) What makes this collection special is the Blu Ray transfer. The films have been restored to their full potential, and the results are stunning. MGM did a wonderful job ensuring that these movies were presented with the finest video transfer. I've never seen movies pre-2000 look so good on Blu Ray- not even the expensive Star Wars set looks like this. From Dr. No forward, every film presentation in this collection is top notch.
As you probably have seen, many people have voiced problems getting their discs out in their reviews. Yes, the discs are stored in cardboard sleeves, and are pretty snug. However, you don't have to rip the paper or get fingerprints on these discs. To get the films out, put your index finger in the center of the disc, and gently pull the disc to the outer, exposed edge of the cardboard. Keep your index finger in the center, and with your other index finger, lift the disc up with your fingernail. You'll then be able to pull the disc out fine, with no fingerprints, scratches, or any damage to the cardboard. Would another form of packaging with easier disc access have been preferred? Of course. But the present packaging should not bring down a star from this rating. Getting the discs out is not a problem, it's just inconvenient. Practice a little, and you'll get the hang out of it.
I cannot recommend this collection enough. It will be a worthy addition to your film library, and will provide top quality for years of enjoyment. It doesn't get better than this.

First, the disk does not move via your index finger; second, I would never recommend using your fingernail on a disk.
