These sleeves are pretty much the standard for most people. Over the years, I have gone through various brands and styles but this one is the one that seems to pop up the most often in stores or with the best price.
Pros: Really crystal clear. I've used other brands which are slightly hazy, but these will show you just about 100% of the color and detail of the original negative.
Cons: The sheets are a little too soft, and also each slot is very tight. So it is harder to slip in negatives with ease and you really have to struggle sometimes to get it in properly. The white strip at the top is nice for labeling, but is also hard to write on. A ballpoint or sharpie will both do it, but you'll need to practice a couple times to get it on there smoothly. Also tends to push against the plastic, resulting in a bit of a relief on the other side.
The Beseler brand sheets, though they seem of a "crappier" quality, are very easy to load in and out of the sleeves. Also crystal clear, and of a slightly more rigid material. I almost think I like those better, though there is nothing particularly wrong with these sheets.
