What is the best source for finding standard CD jewel cases (10.4 mm) with the old-school black trays? I found these on SuperMediaStore, but am a bit deterred since more than one person mentions they wear or break easily. These need to be durable for professional use...

Unfortunately, online reviews are most often where people display their stupidity in public.

Jewel cases are inherently easy to break or crack -- they can be just as fragile as the discs they hold. These style of cases store discs well, in they are not made for rough handling either. My guess is the people leaving the negative comments had unrealistic expectations.

There are definitely different quality grades to jewel cases, but they are all more or less the same. The only jewel cases I would consider "premium" are the ones used for individually cased blank DVDs, such as ones used by Verbatim, Apple or Maxell. Now those are nice!

Stores like SuperMediaStore are great, but Effectuality is known to carry premium-graded empty cases. I've not bought jewel cases from them before, only the DVD movie cases.

Check out the TDK and Maxell cases on Amazon:
