The Sterilite Portable File Box is a decent portable file box and will fit my current needs for it but certainly isn't the sturdiest or most secure file box that you could purchase.

Pros:
Light and portable with a handle
Holds hanging file folders
Top storage lid
File box and top storage lids easily opened

Cons:
Lid only opens 90 degrees
Made entirely of plastic including hinges
No lock(does have holes so a lock can be used with additional purchase)
Not easily stackable

Overall I am happy with the purchase of the file box since I will be using it for light usage with files that don't need to be that secure. If you are needing a file box that is more secure or will have heavy usage I would recommend a more sturdy file box.

Bought this container to organize home school materials. Loved the size and portability of this file cabinet. However the top tray, which I use to store a few pencils and such, will suddenly pop open and spill the contents all over the floor. Tried putting less in the tray and still had the same results.

I have been using this file box for several years as a home file storage container. In this capacity it has not been moved around a lot - mostly to and from the garage a couple times a month. However, over the past several months I have been using this case daily to store and transport files to and from work. I grew tired of moving 10-15 lbs of paper and folders in my laptop briefcase and had gotten to the point where I was reaching the capacity of this bag and needed another option so I did not have to choose which files to take home each night. All in all, the file box has held together well.

This file box excels in paper transport and has a great storage capacity (with about 9 inches of file storage). I have found in terms of lbs the case will weigh about 22-23 lbs with files/folders. This does not include hanging folders, which have metal crossbars that would add weight. I also like the clasp mechanism. It is secure and better/stronger than the (smaller) Oxford file case that I have also been using. I have not noticed any loosening with time. The handle is also well constructed, both in terms of comfort (as it has a solid feel and rounded/contoured design) and durability. From a grip standpoint, I find it more comfortable to carry 20 lbs with this case than 10 lbs with the Oxford. The file box also has a slot for a lock if you choose to use it and a nice compartment area on the top of the box. I have not had any issues with the top of this compartment being loose or unreliable. In fact, as the top hing only opens to vertical (not all the way around), I have not found it possible to accidentally open the top compartment. Overall this file box is very stable and does not tip over easily, even when swinging the top open quickly - at least not when filled with files.

These boxes are well designed and sturdy, a great way to organize stuff in hanging files. Lids fit properly, stacking works, no wasted space.

Minus one star because, like several other reviewers, my shipment arrived with some breakage (damaged in transport). They came nested tightly in a cardboard box without padding, so it's easy to see how they get damaged -- one good drop and it's all over. But as usual Amazon made it easy to get them replaced for minimal effort and no extra cost!

Got this to keep my coupons and for the size it worked perfectly, but the hinge leaves a lot to be desired. Have only had for 6 months and need to replace it already. Very disappointed in this product. The top lid needs something to make an extra effort to keep it shut at all times.

Wow, what has the world of document storage come to. This thing has one usable hinge, the other barely holds on. I'm usually one to stay calm, but this thing makes a better garbage can than a file storage box!!

I bought these to organize tax records. These kind of took me aback when I saw how big they really were. But that is okay. They are sturdy and will hold a lot of files. Standard hanging files fit nicely and the top edge will hold then in place and not leave me with papers falling all over the place because the top edge didn't keep them secure. The price is reasonable. I think I can get at least three years worth of tax records in one box. These would also be handy for storing any kind of documents that you want to hold onto for years. Because they are clear and have a marker label on the end it is easy to ensure that whatever you put into them is identifiable. This was a good buy. Amazon shopping for storage bins is certainly easier than wandering from store to store looking for the right size, shape and composition. I really do like Sterile products. They are inexpensive, but hold up pretty well over time.

These are exactly what I was looking for to start organizing my house. I love that they hold hanging files for my taxes and that they have square corners and not rounded! Plus they stack on each other very nicely. Perfect!
