The DVD Amaray Case: How to Know if It’s Authentic


Amaray is the pioneer name in DVD plastic cases. Like some other popular products that began from a very distinctive name but has become generic,the  Amaray case is now synonymous with quality casings. Today’s ever popular DVD has pulled Amaray’s career as the widely used casing compared to its predecessor, the jewel cases. Not only are the DVD Amaray cases durable, they also come in different colors and a variety of translucence from opaque to almost transparent. DVD Amaray Cases have become the standard in today’s media packaging.

DVD Amaray Cases are so popular nowadays that people often refer to an Amaray generically for a mere DVD case. Piracy is also present here. In order to give justice to the genuine makers of the DVD Amaray Case, it is rightful to share some important ways in knowing if what we have in our hands is an authentic DVD Amaray Case or not. In our endeavor to stop or at least minimize piracy, we need to know every aspect of the products we buy.

Here are some ways you can find out if the DVD Amaray case you’re holding is authentic or fake:

The weight

Recycled plastics are lighter. DVD Amaray cases are heavier approximately 60 to 70 percent. A difference like this will not need a weighing scale. If this is the first time you go shopping for an Amaray Case, then you have to bring a sample of an original amaray so you would know the difference. Pick up the Amaray cases in the stores and weigh them using your hands. If it’s much lighter than the original,then it’s ditch it-it’s not authentic.

The appearance

Simply look for that badge or seal that’s proof of its authenticity. Being the “standard”, the DVD Amaray case is emulated but the logo/seal is still very distinct. Just get familiar of the original Amaray logo and you won’t get fooled. Near the Amaray’s push-button hub, you will find a stylized “A”logo embossed in the case. It stands for AGI, the manufacturers of genuine DVD Amaray Cases. If you search further, you will also find the word “Amaray” embossed inside the case. This is usually located on the case’s binding. Go look for it.

The Smell

You got me right. Smell. There is a distinguishable smell fake Amaray cases. That burnt rubber smell is distinct to poorly recycled plastics. The more recycled content a DVD case has the more noticeable that scent becomes. Amaray cases are made of 100% virgin material so it should not have a strong smell.

Well, the best way to know the difference is by actually getting hold of an authentic and fake DVD Amaray case and comparing their weight,smell, and appearance. It doesn’t take a detective to tell the difference, actually. If you are not too confident, then simply compare the price. The cheaper ones that cost $0.10- $.15 a piece is most likely fake.

Let’s buy the real thing.
