CD wallets?

Ok, I'm finally getting a cd player for my car. (It's an anniversary present from my sweetie-pie.) What about those cd wallets that hold the cds without the jewel cases? Do they adequately protect the cds? Do the discs ever slip out and get scratched up?

Tell me what you know.

I love my cd wallet. It saves so much space.

Just watch out for the zipper... I once put a pretty good scratch in one of my cds because I wasn't paying attention.

I use mine all the time! They save space in my dorm room and they are easy to bring wherever you want to go. Mine are black leather-like ones that I decorated with stickers and puffy paint. I have four of them, but my 24 CD wallet gets the most use because it is the easiest to pack and it fits nicely in my glove compartment.

The only problem that I've had with my CD wallets is with the Zooropa CD. The purple paint sticks to the plastic or vinyl pages in the wallet and comes off. Then if you put another CD in the pocket where the Zooropa paint came off, your other CD will end up sticking in the pocket. It's rather annoying. That's the only CD that I've had a problem with. Anybody else have that problem?

Don't get the "Case-Logic" or whatever it's called. It sounds something like that. I have one that holds around 200 cds and I noticed a lot of stratches after a year.

Well, the one I bought at the store was crap (despite it looking very pretty.) The cds never fall out of the slips, but the slips are detachable from the wallet (so you can put in as many as you need). But the slips always fall out.

I did, however, get a free cd wallet in the mail from PC World. It's really really nice and I couldn't live without it.

I guess I didn't get what I paid for.

Hmmm. Excellent replies, folks; truly top-notch.

Anyone want to share?

i haven't...that sounds odd actually...i wonder if it had something to do with the cd itself, like it was just yours (or more likely a few of them) and not every one manufactured.

i have a huge case logic one that holds ummm....a lot...i don't remember the number, and it's been fine. i've had it for a long time and haven't noticed any problems with cd's falling out or scratching.

i have never had a problem with any of my CD wallets. I just bought a newer one that fits about 90 cds for my car, because i am tired of having all of the jewel cases lying around in my car.

If you have a cd-burner you may as well make some copies and keep them in a wallet in the car.
That way you can have the cds in your home and your car at the same time, and if they get scratched its not the end of the world.

Good advice clodimani. I discovered that idea the hard way after transporting my brothers kids around for a while. They insisted on looking through all the cds with their sticky horrible fingers
At least now if they do it they wont be hurting the originals.
Ive never had any problems with my cd wallet and it is a really cheap one. I hate having cases lying around all over the car.

I had two when I was still using my now broken CD player. One is black and square and the other one is blue and round. Both of them holds 24 CDs. I used the round one more often because its round shape reduce the volume of it and thus more convenient. Non of my CDs have any scratches on it.
