Instructions for closing the box properly
There seems to be a general problem with closing this box properly. It does, in fact, stay securely closed if you make sure to push on the lid on each of the short sides of the box until you hear or feel it click. It is a little tricky at first, but not hard once you know what to expect.

The size of the box is great to fit several Translucent Photo Cases or different types of media but I am very disappointed with the seal of the box. I love the Container Store but I would not buy this product again.

Great idea, but weight shifts the bin too much
Holds a good amount of CDs (my use for them). It is a clean and organized look. Only real issue is that the weight of a full bin makes the body of it too flimsy. The lid easily falls off. If your intent, like mine, is to mainly store media and not access it often, then it is fine. If you access your media often, the flimsiness may become annoying.

Great Storage Solution
I bought 5 of these to house my CD collection. I looked at other solutions, but I wanted one that would allow me to preserve the jewel case inserts (front and back) with the discs. These media boxes are a great solution for me.
They are small enough that they are not too heavy to handle when full. They are designed to stack well, and they do. Although they are described as "clear" there is a slight milkiness to their appearance. Not a problem for me - you can still see the contents easily.
I foresee buying more of these in the future when (if?) I get around to organizing my DVDs.
