I actually got this product on clearance because it was missing the lid, so I can't comment on that aspect of the product.
However, the trunk itself is great. I used it to store my Christmas tree. The plastic is durable and didn't get scratched up by the metal ends on the branches (my tree comes apart). It was also long enough that even the longest branches could fit inside. The wheels make it easy to move around, even though I'm missing the lid.

Huge and resistant! Not so for too-heavy moving
I bought this trunk last fall to store a few of my college stuff. It's huge and it can fit a very big lot of things. (It's so huge, in fact, that a 5'6'' adult can fit inside in fetal position!)
The trunk can handle a lot of weight, and it can be moved once is filled. The wheels resist (even though they are plastic), but it's a complicated thing to move if it's too heavy (for the sake of your back, I mean, and because of the size.)
It's great for storage and transporting stuff from one room to the basement, but not for too long distances.
The colors don't make me crazy, but it closes well, the square shape works great for organizing files, it protects from the sun and it pretty much simplified my storage needs. It also allows has two rings that allow you to lock down the lid if you wish to do so (you have to get the locks separately,of course. But the rings are there)
Would definitely recommend it!

Greatest Trunk Ever
I love this trunk. I am a huge fan of Rock Band 2, but the equipment for Rock Bank (ie, drums, guitar, etc.) is extremely large. I've been using the box it came in, but the box was torn to shreds and ugly. When I saw this trunk, with wheels no less, I had to have it. I take Rock Band with me to my friends houses and now it won't be an eye sore or a problem carrying it. This purchase was my first visit to The Container Store and I can definitely say I will be back to visit again very soon.

The material is solid and the wheels work well. I really packed these and they're heavy, but the wheels worked just fine and they stack up nicely.
