I've had this box sitting in a closet for almost 20 years, randomly storing whatever small items needed a place. Now that I'm back in college, it's the perfect storage for last semester's index cards. Paired with dividers to identify the different sections, my "collection" looks well organized and the box looks like new. I'll probably get a cheaper product next time (I'm in need of about 4 more boxes), but I know that they won't be as sturdy or hold up as well as this trooper. The small plastic "bookend" works great for filling in space if there aren't enough cards to fill the entire box. Completely full of cards, there's no bend in the box as I put it back into a closet.

I bought two of these to hold business files that are on standard 4X6 index cards. The cards do not fit in these boxes properly. They have to be almost wedged in, thereby making it nearly impossible to finger through the files to find correct card. 1/8 or even 3/16th of an inch wider would have made a difference. Now they are just drawer-junk boxes and I'm shopping for new card file boxes.

I have about 14 of these boxes which are used to store magazines whose pages are the size of one half of a letter-size sheet. These publications are 5.5 x 8.5 inches and fit nicely in this type of box. I have even fit half legal size magazines (7 x 8.5 inches) in these. For full letter page magazines I lay them flat and the 8.5 x 11 pages fit inside nicely. This covers the various sizes of magazines I wish to file in a uniform size of boxes.

The plastic follower device will hold them upright if there is not enough to fill the box. Otherwise it can be removed. The boxes are sturdy enough to stack (say 6 high). For maximum access I place them on a bookshelf.

I need some more of these for my growing archive and expect to order some soon.

perfect size for greeting cards. fits a larger amount than the other boxes specifically made for greeting cards. This box also looks nice if you set it on a shelf.

I made some dividers on the computer and printed them on card stock, and then decorated the box with scrapbook paper, ribbon and a jeweled piece. looks great and all the cards fit without being too tight.

Good box and the follower is especially helpful, but the advertisement specifically stated that the box came with dividers. Beware buyers. There are no dividers.

I have a few older Globe-Weis card storage boxes in the 4x6 size. This box is inferior to those in almost every meaningful way. The box panels are perhaps half as thick, and not rigid like the older boxes. This is most evident on the sides, which were slightly bowed in just from the shrink-wrap packaging. In the older boxes, the follower is a metal plate with a spring release which allows it to slide along a metal rod recessed into the bottom. In this box, it's a flimsy plastic assembly which is not even permanently attached. Also, anything you place in the box will be resting on the grooved plastic strip which replaced the recessed metal rod. The metal plate on the front is attached by four metal studs which project into the inside of the box, threatening whatever photo or document is first.

Amazon's price is lower than any other retailer I found, including Wal-Mart and Staples. However, this product has been cheapened in so many ways that it's not worth even the Amazon price. I was looking for something I could buy several of for storage of photo prints in archival envelopes. Sadly, I am still looking.

Excellent items, great packing and very quick shipping AAAA++++
To be more specific about the item;
+ the boxes now have a metal pull on the front
- if the boxes are stacked high, the pull blocks the front label
+ the item is constructed well, should last
- the boxes are a little smaller than they used to be, width is MY biggest problem, height and length are fine
+ price is perfect for the item
/ maybe a quantity discount could be offered, I purchase in twelves

I use the Brother labelers for many things and have quite a collection of TZ tapes. When they were in an old shoe box I didn't know what I had and it was a hassle to look for a particular size and/or color. With a couple of these index card storage boxes I have all my TZ tapes sorted by size and color. I can very quickly inventory what I have and make an appropriate selection for the task.
