I really like the look of this file box and am glad I purchased it. Very sturdy and fits my letter-sized hanging folders easily, even with tabs on them. (So many covered file boxes had complaints that the tabs wouldn't fit with the lid on.) I would have preferred one with wheels, but couldn't find one with a lid that would fit the tabs when closed, so opted for this one with a handle for ease of movement. I'm glad I did. I haven't had it for long, but the box seems very sturdy and something that will last for a while. I also love that the hanging folders rest in the box, and not on a separate bar - those with separate bars tend to break or come loose and feel more flimsy.

My only issue was that the plastic lid is not attached when delivered, and it was VERY difficult for me to get the tab to snap in - I kept waiting for the lid to crack or the tab to break off while inserting it into the hole. But it seemed to take my "abuse" well while bending it to fit, and nothing broke. I don't think I'd ever get it off again without breaking it, so make sure you really want the lid on before you put it on. And, if it makes a difference to you, the cover opens like a hinge, opening on the longer side. So if (like me) you've got letter-sized files in there, the lid will be opening sideways. Not a problem for me, but thought I'd mention it in case it is for you.

I had been looking for a long time for a box of some sort to put each of my five children's keepsakes from the childhood. When the first of my children married three years ago, I had organized his and gave it to him at the wedding rehearsal. He was very touched. I organized it my preschool through high school papers and awards. He has kept the box with it. The next two oldest also received theirs and now have a place to store their childhood items. I also included a scrap book with pictures of their childhood and those of all of us.

Unlike some of the reviewers, I use this file box as it's intended- to hold my files. I needed my files to be easily portable. I use the standard Letter-size hanging file folders inside with tab labels. After buying one of these file boxes I bought another for my Aunt to organize her files. Overall, I have a positive experience using this item.

All I needed was a file box that would let me file all those random papers around the house that you can't throw away. And it works! It's light, easy to store, and holds a LOT. And the lid doesn't squish the tabs. Price and quality go hand in hand, but this box is a pretty good value for what you pay.

The other smaller portable plastic file boxes that I bought all broke, usually at the hinges. This thing doesn't really have hinges and seems sturdier partly because it is more simple Doubt if it would completely keep the rain out if you had to carry it between a car and a building in the rain. However, I love it because I can float stuff (like a check I have to remember to give somebody) on top of the file folders in order to see it and be reminded through the translucent top. They stack very nicely next to my chair, in which case the lid can be a nice work surface where I can write or organize things temporarily. They have held up well for nearly a year but I keep empty space in front of the file folders to carry miscellaneous items. If I filled all the available space with file folders it would be rather heavy to carry to meetings, which is the main reason I bought it.

This is my second time ordering this file box because it answers all of my needs to be able to hold lots of documents of different sizes and has a sturdy handle. Great product.

I'm using this as my homeschool storage box. It is very well constructed and allows regular hanging files to smoothly hang and slide it is also easy to carry around like a picnic basket. The top clear hinged plastic is great because you can see through it into your basket. Probably wouldn't be great in the rain because it's not sealed. I'm super happy!

This "crate" is now occupied with historical photos that are not a standard size. The photos had not been used in years and were in a dirty cardboard box in the "discard" pile at the high school. The crate is a bit short for them, but is better than anything else I found. Being able to pick it up by the handles is a wonderful feature. The top will keep out dust and dirt. The unit is sturdy enough to set things on it if space is a consideration. It is being put to very good use in a high school history classroom and allows the photos to be used after years of inactivity.
