Stash CD Case Review: Breakdown

Quality

Build Quality

Build Quality

These cases are made pretty much as you’d expect them to be – it’s a jewel case like a normal CD with a special compartment built into the case to secretly store your stash. The opening to the stash is plastic on the top like the inside of a normal CD case, and the inside is usually a felt-lined compartment. The build quality is average and doesn’t really have any crazy surprises that screams extravagance. You can check out the Stash CD Set video of how to use it for yourself to continue to not be wowed if you like.

Discreetness

Discreetness

This is 2014, for anybody who had no idea what year it was, and we’ll soon be in 2015. These are the days of digital music, mp3’s and the like are the norm and almost nobody buys CD’s anymore. In fact, it might be safe to assume that more people buy records for the quality and nostalgia than CD’s. In this particular case, if you have a bunch of CD’s already lying around the house, you might be able to get this and hide it among those, but those people are likely few and far between. There’s aren’t many people around who have an impressive enough CD collection for this stash case to go unnoticed. Furthermore, this case doesn’t exactly seal in any way, which means smell escapes pretty easily from this stash case. This is a problem for discretion as it’s a problem if someone can smell what you’re trying to hide. Under those circumstances, it won’t stay hidden long.

look-and-feel

Look and Feel

The cases don’t exactly look or feel really high quality. The quality is good, don’t get me wrong. The felt-lined stash section of the case feels nice and does a good job of protecting any fragile contents from being too easily damaged, but jewel cases always have a tendency to feel like they could be and have been purchased at the dollar store. That’s not really the fault of the cases, it’s just the nature of a CD but it doesn’t change the fact that for the price you might feel a bit cheated. The cover used for this CD case looks brutally boring, which is good because you wouldn’t want it to have a cover that makes people want to take it out, open it and play the CD, so it does score some points to that end.

Capacity

Capacity

Inside the case, the storage section is 11 cm x 10 cm and 5 cm deep. This is alright for some people, but other people might be looking for a more compact solution or even a larger form of storage, but either way, with a Stash CD Case you’re restricted to one size, which isn’t the most convenient or accommodating storage solution.

Conclusion

It’s unfortunate that this storage solution didn’t perform better. The idea has some potential, but most of us is wasted because it doesn’t seal, it only comes in 1 size and, of course, it’s a CD. This ends up being a bit of a problem for many enthusiasts who’re looking for a secret stash solution. I guess they’ll just have to find some other way to hide their herb…..*cough*stash cans*cough.
