Cheap plastic sags under weight of vinyl records
This product is advertised as a durable crate, but check out the attached photo -- it sags down in the middle when filled with standard vinyl records. This product is not up to the Container Store's usual standard of quality. Disappointing.

MAKE THIS MORE STURDY!
This crate would be great if it were made of the same material that actual milk crates are made of. I stacked three crates sideways with the most vinyl at bottom to almost empty at top. Within the hour, the crate at to bottom began to bent so I opted to stack them vertically. Stacking them this way showed no signs of bending, but obviously made the middle and bottom crate's vinyl inaccessible. PLEASE make this crate with a stronger plastic.

Great way to maximize space in small area
After looking at several different types of crates I selected the "Supreme crate" because it was larger than most & durable. The crates that sell for $3-$7 are not the same type of quality. Also, it's very difficult to find local stores that carry crates year round. Most retailers only carry in stock during back to school sales.

I used this for my boyfriend's old record albums and his books. Since they are designed to fit albums, you can stack the crates without fear of damaging the contents. Typically, the height of similar storage crates are not high enough to allow this. Note that you will pay additional shipping for this item. It's curious that I have found larger items on the site that do not require additional shipping. I didn't think the size was THAT big to warrant the extra cost.
