CompactorÂ® Storage Boxes
Doesn't keep vacuum - lets air in so expands
This product seems awesome at first, but give it a few days and it lets air into the bag so that it's no longer compressed. I could hardly get it back out from under my bed to try to re-seal. I thought maybe I hadn't sealed them right, even though the same thing happened to all 3 that I bought. So, I vacuumed the air out again and very carefully re-sealed all 3, making sure they were completely zipped up tight. Didn't matter - within a couple days the same thing had happened. I don't have the receipt anymore, but would absolutely return them if I could.
In addition, the velcro on the sides to make the lid attach to the sides is awkward, nearly impossible to stick together, and of course comes apart within a day or two.
Definitely do NOT recommend - they're a waste of money.

Good but BIG
I bought the largest box. No problems with sealing or staying sealed. Holds even more than I expected. But its so big that it won't fit on my closet shelves. Still trying to figure out where to keep it.

AMAZING Storage bags!
I can't tell you how many Space Bag's I have purchased over the years and have had to toss after one use! These bags hold the vacuum seal and do not get holes in them!! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for nice looking space saving storage!

Compactor doesn't work as advertised
I spent the last two hours putting away my summer clothes. I followed the directions exactly, and left plenty of space for the bag to seal. Once I vacuumed out the air, and once the "blinking LED lights" turned off, I thought I was set until I heard air coming out of the bag, and the bag began expanding. I quickly checked the seal and it was closed.
I am more frustrated about the time wasted with all the packing when I now need to unpack and find another storage solution (other than the vacuum storage that doesn't seem to work).
