Re: Best Way To Mail DVDs?
I've received a DVD destroyed in the mail. It was in a special hard case. The case was slightly crushed, breaking off pieces of hard plastic (from the snap-on center hub) which proceeded to scratch up the surface of the DVD. Even Netflix's paper envelope is superior in that respect.
I'm sure Netflix knows exactly the loss rate and how much it costs to replace a broken disk, and expects to lose a few. I suspect your tradeoff will be very different.
