Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and attractive Love these file boxes! They are very sturdy and attractive. I happened to get these blue files as well, and it's a stunning combination which will kind of make me happy using them. Redoing my home office, and love these! I also like that these have handles to pull them out of my credenza. The accordion files are kind of floppy and you can't pull the whole file envelope out - didnt want that. Other hard sided ones aren't nearly attractive. I've looked at other office supply places, but drove 2 1/2 hour to the Container store and happy I found these. I got four and will label the ends of the boxes by its contents. May do something pretty, with Martha Stewart products for that. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and Stylish I ordered a few of these file boxes along with a few other styles, and the clear acrylic is my favorite. You can wipe off fingerprints and smudges (unlike most fabric or paper-covered boxes), but best of all it shows off pretty hanging folders. And if you invest in decorative folders, why hide them? Two improvements could be made: (1) protective coating to prevent scratches; (2) felt or rubber tabs on the bottom so grit (darn sand zen garden!) or things on bottom don't scratch desk if sliding the box across the surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acrylic Desktop File What a clear way to make an organized statement in a room. Fill it full of zebra striped folders for a funky look. Fill it with bold colored folders to coordinate with the room's colors. Either way, all your desk papers are organized. Love it!. It "makes sense" to organize your life and it "makes cents" to not waste time looking for your stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sits nicely on my desk! It takes up surprisingly little space. With colored penta-flex's it brightens a dark corner. Looks better than I thought it would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Desk Top Storage I need to see the current projects I'm working on but don't want them spread out on my desk. With the clear acrylic file I can place them in different colored file folders and easily grab the project I need to work on. It's attractive and the mess of piles all over my desk is gone.

What are the interior dimensions of this file?

I am assuming the dimensions listed on the website are from the outside of one handle to the outside of the other handle. I need to know what the size of the opening on top is because I am considering purchasing this box to keep things in other than file folders. I appreciate your help! Thank you.
