the Nagaoka ones are 'record shaped' at the bottom, rather than square, then I used to find them harder to insert into the outer sleeve.
Hate is a strong word.
Don't go there, it's not worth it...
Nagaoka's for me, the shape's never bothered me.
Me neither, I quite like a well-rounded bottom (it's a personal thing!)
I find they are less likely to fold over and crease like square ones can on re-insertion.

They can do, if the original inner sleeve is creased especially but I've always found completely square ones fold at the corners anyway if you try to put them back into an original sleeve, so I think it's as broad as it's long.

Collected my Goldrings from the Post Office today.
Easy to insert LP, easy to slide back into cover with no bunching, no overhang out of the cover as reported on another forum, so pretty much good all round.
