PROS:
-Cards can be stored upright inside this box, versus sideways like other boxes require.
-There's plenty of room in this box, even for sleeved cards.
-This box has a lid which fits tightly on top. It doesn't have a funny out-folding top like other boxes have.
-Thick sides, very durable and safe.
-Lid does NOT crunch some of your cards like some novelty boxes do.

CONS:
-Ten bucks for a cardboard box is kinda expensive.
-It comes flat in three pieces which have to be assembled (folded) together. No instructions, kinda tricky, might damage the box a little if done incorrectly.
-The lid is difficult to slip on and off until it's worn into a little.
-Kinda ugly, I guess, but they're all that way.

SYNOPSIS:
I don't like funky out-folding tops and I like my cards standing upright in sleeves, so this box was a good buy for me. The price is deterring however, and I wonder if it can't be bought cheaper at a cards store instead.

These 2 Row Storage Boxes with a maximum capacity to hold 1600 cards, are a great buy and at a terrific price as well. I bought a few of these and when I finally received them in the mail, they came already put together for me! All I had to do was just put the cards into each slot, which also has a little bit of a wider width, which I really love because it gives you enough space for you to place your fingers inside to remove any number of cards you'd like.

I also bought these to store my collection of new and used playing cards that I use for performing my card magic. In each slot I was able to fit 20 cases of both my sealed decks of cards and 20 of my opened card cases, and they do not take up that much space either. So if you like to collect any type of cards or card cases, buy some of these because for the price, these were an absolute deal.

Was looking for a storage unit for my husband's Magic cards. This was perfect. Had to look online to figure out how to build it, but once we watched a video it was easy to assemble.

The box itself serves its purpose and actually has more room than I thought it would. I was able to fit my Cards Against Humanity cards, plus three expansions, and the boxes that the cards came in into this one box. The box was shipped in a much larger box which seemed a little wasteful but it isn't that big of a deal. The reason I give this box four stars is because it did not come with assembly instructions, and even though I was able to figure it out after a few minutes of refolding, a quick diagram would have been nice.

These came in a huge box since they were pre-assembled. One of the dividers was bent.

They are expensive. If you want 5+ of these it's cheaper to go directly through BCW (just google it) even with the shipping.

This box comes in three flat cardboard pieces, and you have to assemble it yourself. It's not immediately obvious how to do this, but a quick search brings up this set of instructions:

First of all, this box is a great size because toploaders fit in perfectly for storage, the "lanes" are wide enough.

My complaint here is for the seller DISCOUNT CARD SUPPLIES who sent this item to be loosely wrapped in Saran Wrap and it was completely bent and almost impossible to put together. I can't believe the horrible shipping job. The box looks like crap, it's all dinged up and bent in several places. I would not order anything from them again, it must be some twelve year old running that business.

This box is great if you own Cards Against Humanity and all three expansion packs. It holds all the decks together with plenty of room to also store their empty orginal boxes. There's even a little room left for one or two more expansion packs (assuming they make more in the future).

The problem here is Amazon's shipping department. They do not have appropriate packaging to ship this item. I had to order it twice, and both times the item was damaged. The first time, they folded the item in half to fit it into a small shipping box. Keep in mind, this item is merely a cardboard storage box... after it was folded in half and creased, it did not assemble properly. What were they thinking?!? I quickly requested a refund and I re-ordered the item. I explained the packaging situation and I was assured that it would not happen again.

The second time I received the item, it came in a huge, very deep box (but still wasn't LONG enough to fit the item without bending it in some way). This time, they didn't fold the item in half, but they bent the ends to force-fit it on top of tons and tons of paper filler. By doing this, they tore one of the flaps needed to build the box. Furious, I called and demanded a refund again. I've given up trying to order this from Amazon.

This product itself is a great item for card storage, but I would try to find it at your local craft or collectibles store. Until Amazon figures out the proper way to ship this, you are most likely going to receive a damaged item.

Here's a hint, Amazon: Either get a long, shallow box to ship this in, or don't put this item in a box at all. The item is shipped unassembled and flat: You can package it between two larger cardboard pieces and shrink wrap it, like how some posters are shipped. Problem solved!

First things first - the box is well made (as much as a box can be) as it doesn't continually collapse like previous boxes I've had from other manufacturers. It's sturdy and will hold up quite well for what you need. The item comes in a VERY large box (shockingly large) as the item is nothing but flat cardboard when it arrives. It's your job to fold it up into the shape you see in the picture. There were no instructions in mine, but, after looking it over for about five minutes and looking at the preferrated lines - it's pretty easy to see what you need to do and fold where you need to fold.

The lanes for the cards are wide enough for those in penny sleeves (a must) and they're also wide enough for MOST hard covers, though, if you plan to store any graded cards in these you'll need to find another method as graded cards will not fit (even the smallest of graded cards). You can adjust the divider in the box to fit them I guess, but, that pretty much turns it into just a random box with a bunch of extra un-used space (plus your cards will rattle around).

Very nice quality though - hard not to like it for storing cards. I wouldn't recommend putting any cards of value in these (or any boxes)- find yourself some high quality cases for that.

I've had a number of storage boxes over the years. While I usually prefer the single-row side-laying boxes for storing a single set or an individual deck of cards, when I want to store multiple sets or a mix-and-match of cards, this does the job nicely, as I can store a lot of smaller sets of cards in an easier-to-use storage system, where I can flip through them and see the card names as I go.

The boxes are sturdy and I've now purchased several to stack, filled with cards and dividers (homemade, don't pay for the pre-made ones, they're expensive for a 10-pack and you can make them yourself for a lot cheaper). They hold up in a stack, fit cards with penny sleeves just fine.

These boxes come un-assembled, but assembly is easy. At first you'll think to yourself, "how will this ever stay together?" but trust me, it does, and it's just fine!

I personally find the 2-row boxes better than my larger 4-row boxes as they're easier to manage and work with, although I still have a few of my older 4-rows around that I've had for literally 20 years, stacked, and still in perfect shape!
