I just searched for the word "steelbook" from DVDEmpire and Hannibal 2-Disc Collector's Edition is also on the list.

I wished they did Silence of the Lambs instead of Hannibal...

Yup, they all are tempting to get.  I won't be surprised if by this time next year, maybe even by Christmas, every DVDs, new and catalogue,  will be in steelbook.  I believe the new packaging will really give a new product life cycle to the DVD in the face of the emerging high definition formats.   

Any DVD collector going to Europe or ordering online had better budget at least 5000 Euros to start collecting them and replacing their staid amaray and digipack collections.  ;D

Is steelbook considered the same as those released by Ezydvd? They have quite a number of attractive ones too

They don't look the same to me, they're more like those tin cases from Band Of Brothers - larger than those steelbooks, though both are made of tin.  And I believe the design and term "steelbook" is patented.

AvPhile is correct regarding ezydvd. The embossed tin looks good though. I own one of ezydvd exclusive... King Kong.

I have the same question.  I fail to see the relevance of the topic in maintenance.

Maybe because of these posts? ???


Steelbook is a good investment. It won't rust through time. It has high quality printing. And it is a solid proof that your dvd is authentic.
:)

Also noticed that.  Apocalypto will also be released with a steelbook edition accdg to dvd-palace.de.  Also Kingdom of Heaven.

Seems like DVD business has found a new attraction for their avid collectors to double-dip.   ;D  And more reason to up the price tags since you now have the makings a new product life cycle starting.  Even if it's just packaging.

I've stumbled on the origins of the SteelBook - a trademarked name for a Danish packaging firm Glud & Marstrand and marketed by Scanavo.  No wonder those .de websites on DVD have the most titles on steelbook.  Must be cheaper to get them from Denmark or Germany.   ;D

http://www.glud-marstrand.com/sw1239.asp

These steelbooks will now have a 1-1 relationship with the disc content.  Much like in the days of those warner snappers since the disc details will be printed on the cases themsevles, no more printed cover inserts.   You can no longer replace ruined cases as easily as with Amarays.  I remember this was one of the reasons warner shifted to a more flexible and cheaper amaray casing.  Definitely a lot classier than snappers, but I think printing on tin may be more expensive than printing on snapper cardboards with die-cutting.  And now, you have more reason not to lend a DVD title cased in steebook.   ;D

There's nothing to maintain with steelbooks, is there?  Once it is soiled, defaced or dented, that's it, goodbye.   No replacement.  Unlike neutral nameless Amaray cases which rightly belong in the maintenance section.

I wasn't the moderator who moved the topic, but if you look at the subforum description, it says:

DVD Maintenance:
Disc care, defects, bug reports, storage, cases & packaging.


So although I moved the thread back to General DVD Discussion for 1 minute, I bounced it back in here, since that's what this section is for, apparently.

I've actually never read a single thread in "DVD Maintenance" until today.  ;D

I guess the title of the thread is also misleading. Based on the discussions so far, the thread has become a listing of what DVD titles are available in steelbook and what titles you have in steelbook,  rather than a discussion about steelbook,  Very much unlike a thread discussing where to get amaray cases or the merits of snapper vs amaray vs digipack. Perhaps a change of thread title into: "DVD titles in steelbook" may be more apt in the DVD releases section, separate from another thread about steelbook packaging.
