Don't give me any shit over sending me a new CORRECT, clamshell case with inlays!

Sweet Moses, you spend damned near 70 drachmas to get -- what -- aggravation?!


WELL put.

Trying to fix it, the hinge broke -- I am furious!

I demand a replacement case with the inlays set correctly!

I'm so mad I don't even want my mother and sister released from jail!

I'm sitting here with a busted box and no place to store the cd's. $65.00 for this.

"How did I know that roof tile was going fall off and hit the governor?"


"Why didn't it hit you instead?"

"How did I know that I was going to have to disassemble a product due to a manufacturer error that could have easily been spotted by anyone in the shipping department?"

I'll admit I'm in a bad humor over this.

I'm returning the whole damned mess exactly as it sits before me with a two word note -"REPLACE IT!"

Them Californians secretly hate Texans.

I was standing by the water cooler one day last week and overheard some of the SAE shipping department guys laughing about deliberately putting upside-down inserts into one of the BEN-HUR sets.

"Who should we send it to?" one of the guys said, barely-contained mischievous mirth written across his devious face.

"That Johnson dude from Texas. Damn! Can't wait to read his posts on the FSM board when he gets it in the mail!" Then they all had a good laugh and strolled on down the hall back to their cubicles. The last thing I heard was one of them saying, "God, I love this job!"

See what I mean?

I take apart a jewel case every now and then, whether to switch out a disc and inserts to a newer case (most often if I buy a used disc, as they usually come all scuffed up) or some other reason, and sometimes even those 4+ disc cases. Can't say I've ever had one break on me, though you do have to be a bit careful when popping out the inside tray; and on one of those larger cases it's probably a good idea to disconnect the portion you're working on from the rest of it so as not to break the hinges.

Nothing quite like buying a defective copy of a pricey item, is there?

I hardly think that a reversed back cover warrants calling the whole product "defective". These things happen. I've had to reverse clamshell back covers and it isn't that difficult. If you get so angry over a relatively trivial matter how do you cope with major lifetime events?

This is not your ordinary clamshell. It just broke. Anyway, I should not have to deal with this kind of quality control issue on a 70 dollar cd set.

Well, technically, the additional cost of the set is for the great quantity of music contained in it. The jewel case is the same as any jewel case, and no matter how much a CD costs you may end up getting one that breaks. The average quality of jewel cases, unless you're careful where you get them, has been going down with time rather than up. The only way to avoid it may be for the manufacturer to move to a more robust type of container like the Super Jewel Box, but I don't think they make cases that fit as many discs as this set requires.

It doesn't matter. They either replace the case with corrected inlays, or I return it and cancel the order.

And now back to the music, come on you lucky people in the good old USA give us poor Brits (who have to wait at least another week before getting this) a run down on what the sound quality is like, esp. the album versions.

Please.
