Instructions were a difficult to follow, but after the first box the rest were easy.

Great value, great functionality
This box was a little difficult to assemble, but I think that was because I was not translating what I was reading into what I was seeing, both on the box itself and on the illustrations provided with the written instructions. If I were planning to store my crystal stemware permanently, I would have spent more money on one of the other styles of storage containers. This is perfect for my short term intentions and, frankly, will last longer than "temporary" if necessary. For a little more money you can buy the box w/separate lid and the divider insert if you don't want to mess with assembly. You can't make a "wrong" choice with the container store!

Functional but awkward to assemble
comes flat which is easy to transport but directions are a bit skimpy; be patient and have a wall to lean the box on on the 3rd fold unless you have a second pair of hands; by the third one it was easy

New Love of My Life
I have purchased probably a dozen of these boxes to move my stemware and glasses. They are fabulous. They were not nearly as difficult to assemble as I thought they would be after reading the other reviews. I will definitly be keeping these boxes after the move and re-using them for general storage ane oragnization. They are very sturdy and stack very nicely.
The biggest drawback was the lack of handles, or even handle holes. Once assembled the hole in the side can trick you - as it did my husband - but the top just opens. Maybe some handle holes on the bottom half of the box or some handles you could pull through slots on the top of the box... I would not hate it. :)
