I have roughly 10,000 old photographs. As I took those photos, I put them in photo albums; so they were all in chronological order, rather than being grouped by subject. That made finding specific photos very difficult. Consequently, my photo albums just sat on the shelves collecting dust. I finally decided to buy some of these photo boxes to reorganize my photos by subject.
With as many photos as I have, I debated between buying the small cases (which have six inner cases) and the large case (which has sixteen inner cases). I ended up choosing the small cases; and I'm glad I did. I think the large cases would have been too heavy and bulky once they were filled with photos; but that's just my personal opinion.
Each of these cases holds up to 600 photos. That's roughly the same number of pictures I had stored in 2.5 of my photo albums; and these cases take up less space.
At the start, I said this review is for both the Advantus Photo Keeper Box, and the IRIS Photo and Embellishment Craft Keeper. Overall, I'm happy with my purchases of both products; but they do have some minor differences, which may or may not be important to you.
First, let's compare PRICE ...
Earlier this month, I purchased four of the IRIS cases. At that time, Amazon had them as an Add-On item; and the price was only $5.34 each. I quickly filled up those cases and decided to purchase some more of them; but when I went to do so, Amazon's price had gone up to $10.34 (i.e. almost double) each. What's up with that Amazon?
As for the Advantus cases, Amazon's prices is currently $8.09 each.
Despite Amazon raising their price, I went ahead and bought two more of the IRIS cases. (That gave me six matching cases, which fit perfectly on one bookcase shelf.) I also bought 4 of the Advantus cases. (Since they'll be on a different shelf, I really didn't care if they matched the IRIS cases; and they were less expensive.)
If you're only organizing a small collection of photos, the price difference is fairly negligible; but if you need a dozen of these boxes, that's a different story.
Both products are available through Amazon Prime; and since I'm an Amazon Prime member, I don't pay for shipping. As a matter of fact, the shipping charge doesn't even show up when I view the product page. If you're a non-Prime members, the shipping cost would be something else to take into consideration.
Next, let's compare SIZE ...
On Amazon's product description pages, the outer dimensions of these cases are listed as:
8 x 7.5 x 5.2 inches for the Advantus product; and
8.60 in L x 7.40 in W x 5.50 in H for the IRIS product
IMHO, neither size description is accurate.
From my personal observation (i.e. looking at the two products side by side), they appear to be the exact same size.
From front to back (listed as the product's length) these boxes area actually 9.25 inches. That's the true measurement when you include the rear hinges and front latch. Depending on your shelf space, or other intended storage space, this may or may not be important.
The width measurements were accurate; but the height of each box is 5.5 inches. I don't know how the Advantus box was measured at 5.2"; but it is actually 5.5" tall. Again, this discrepancy is minuscule; but it could make a difference if you plan to stack them on a bookshelf that has fixed-height shelves.
Product Design ...
Both products are made from non-rigid, acid-free, plastic. The plastic is slightly opaque; but the Advantus product is marginally clearer than the IRIS product. Also, the plastic used for the Advantus product is slightly more rigid than the IRIS product.
The outer case for both products has a non-removable lid. They have hinges in the back; and have a front latch that snaps under a small lip. The inner boxes (both products) also have attached lids. They don't have an actual hinge. Instead, the plastic is just thinner; so as to be bend/fold easily. As for the front latch, it is hinged the same way and has a hole that snaps over a small peg.
Due to the more rigid nature of the Advantus product, the cases (both inner and outer) are slightly harder to open and close. I think they would be less likely to accidentally come opened; but I'm also concerned that they might wear out more easily due to requiring extra force to open/close them. Since I just purchased these cases, I can't evaluate or compare their actual durability yet.
Next, when stacking these cases, the IRIS products stack more securely on top of each other than the Advantus product. This has to do with the way the feet and lid line up with each other.
Also, the outer IRIS cases have a small recessed fingertip area in the lid. This makes them easier to grab onto than the Advantus case. With the Advantus case, I find myself grasping it by the front latch; and that's probably not a good thing (i.e. even more stress and wear on the latch).
All things considered, both products are very good. I give a slight advantage to the design of the IRIS cases; but I can't say they are worth the higher cost (i.e. $2.26 more per case).
If the hinges and latches (on both products) were a bit better quality, I wouldn't hesitate to give both products a 5-star rating. But, given the way they area actually made, I have serious doubts about their durability. Consequently, I gave both products a 4-star rating.
So I go to her place one day and she showed me how she used it to organize her makeup collection. Go figure. It did this remarkably well.
However, she did note that the clasps for each original case didn't close completely. The box itself clasps very tightly, though. Just be careful not to pull each case out too fast or else it might open itself and spill all the goods out.
Overall it does its job, but could be more solidly built.
