these are really good looking...much better in person. They appear to be real leather and look like a set of classics on your book shelf. And the SPACE THEY SAVE in my tiny house is INCREDIBLE. I didn't think it would make this much difference...but 300 dvd' s vs 6 binders makes a HUGE difference. I have ordered another set for my cd's. I got the brown, which i s vey nice and has a beautiful black spine with a label in nice script saying 'dvd's and cd's' They are a little pricey but totally worth it.
