Large Media Box
I purchased 4 Large Media Boxes and plan on purchasing several more! My DVD's are now nicely organized and stored in 3 of these boxes, but what I'm most excited about is what I'm using the 4th box for. I make greeting cards using Stampin Up products, and I've been searching high and low for a storage solution for my ink pads. I have over 50 stamp pads in it already, and it has room for loads more. They fit neatly & securely, and I absolutely love it!

Tribute to the Store's "Scratch and Dent" section
I originally came into the Charlotte store to purchase a smaller capacity media box because of the cost. That was, until I walked to the back of the store and the "Clearance" area. I always check it for unique finds and have purchased quite a few products from that section. I found the large media box there, marked down to almost the same price as the smaller box, with only one handle missing as its blemish. It works perfectly for its intended use (office) and I couldn't be happier with the product or the price! Another 5-star Container Store!

OK for VHS
I bought 2 of these and one small one. The large one says it will hold 30 VHS movies, but not really. In the regular slim cases you can really only fit 24 VHS movies, 8 in each of the 3 sections with 4 on top of 4. The additional 2 per section will not go in all the way because of the dividers that poke out for the other types of media that these can be used for. Yes you can technically squeeze in the other 2 down to the divider and the lid still closes, but then it is wedged in so tight, removing it is very cumbersome. This also negates the flip lid. Additionally, Disney movies and others with the big plastic cases do not work well either. But, you can make 12 fit if they are positioned right with 12 VHS in the normal size cases. Either way, it really holds 20% less than advertised for VHS. It works fine, but I wouldn't really recommend it for VHS as advertised, but it looks like it would be a good product for the other types of media.

CDs FINALLY organized
These large media boxes are perfect. I finally got my 100's of CDs organized. The clear plastic makes it easy to see what is in each container. I alphabetized them and used a labeler to note which letters are in each container. I can finally get rid of mix-matched CD towers and random cardboard boxes. The provided dividers are great to hold the not completely full rows in place.
