Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great storage for videos and games I had all my dvd movies and my son's games stacked in various places and was looking for a neater way to store and access them easily. I bought 3 of these large media boxes and I just love them! You can see the titles right through the cover. The cover is split with a hinge so you can open half of the box without having to remove the entire cover. One box will hold over 55 dvd or video game size boxes but it comes with dividers so you can store smaller size games and discs as well. They stack nicely too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely in Love! Let's face it..having a CD and DVD stand in your living room is out dated. But I refused to get rid of them (call me an organized hoarder) but records are making their way back! I wanted to keep them to show my future grand children what I used to listen to and watch. These cases are perfect for that! Now everything is organized into the containers and I can see what's in each container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best I bought this to try out for CDs and DVDs. I wanted to transition from the "towers" which are inconvenient. I thought this was excellent, dividers make it easy to contain CDs and organize, stores a ton of stuff and you can put in multi-CD sets. I also like the fact that you don't have to take the top off to access the CDs, like the locking tabs and the top is very clear to see inside easily. I am buying a couple more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I finally have all my dvd's organized in just two boxes. I use to have them in many boxes, never knowing what box held what movie. Now I can see whats in the box without even opening it. I collect Old Black and White movies and they were getting out of hand. Wish I had purchased these a long time ago. Getting organized has never been easier, and fun when you can get the right product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Storage Purchase The large Media Box is great. I purchased 2. They hold all of my CDs. I have placed all of my music on my computer and on my ITouch. I do not need them out to play. This is a great container to house all of them. Wishes! I wish it came with more dividers then it does. It comes with three dividers as there are three rows. However within those 3 rows there are several slots where dividers could be placed. I wish the height of the box was just a little smaller so I could fit it under my bed or under my dresser. Right now have to make room for it to go in a closet somewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big ol' box of media This is a big media box, so big that I think I can stuff a network newscast in here. Holds cds, and is see through, so I can find the cd by seeing the cd spine. Clearness good for searching, bad if your musical tastes swing towards a "Polka tribute to AC/DC & Lemmy from Motorhead sings The Carpenters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cd storage case. Fits my needs perfectly. These cases are perfect for storing large numbers of cds. I have quite a few cds and needed a storage case that was large capacity, but that would also keep the cds accessible. This case fits the bill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great way to store optical media The large media box is not glamorous, it's simply a clear plastic box. However, it does excel at allowing you to store DVDs and CDs easily and effectively. Moreover, I use sleeves rather than jewel boxes for storing my media and it works just as well for that method. As it is clear, it is easy to identify what media is in which box and the construction is such that it has enough strength to completely fill it with discs. My only criticism, and it is slight, is that it could do with a little more depth for Blu Ray discs and also the dividers do not fit as securely as I would hope. Overall, though, this is a great product that works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Storage Solution This appears to be a really good storage option and solution for storing media, such as CD's and DVD's. I am still trying to figure out how the spacing works, however, because I primarily want to use these to store my Blu-ray discs in the cases, which vary in size from standard DVD's. Any other suggestions will be much appreciated! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This product is amazing! I have over 100 DVDs and Blu-Rays and this is a great way to store and protect them. Plus, being a college student, these containers make it easy to move my collection from place to place as I move around. I highly recommend this product for any person with a large collection of DVDs or CDs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank god for organization! This is one of my best purchases ever…actually 3 purchases ever. My CDs were disorganized in my entertainment center so I bought 3 to conquer the clutter. I love this media box for many reasons. I love it because I can stack these easily in my entertainment center and I love that the cover is hinged in the middle making it very easy for me to get to the CDs that I need. I also love how sturdy they are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large media Box This box is perfect for my daughter's DVD's! Previously, they were stacked up in a bin, messy to look at and not easy for my daughter to search through. Now they are all nice and neat in this box where my daughter can easily see the titles. Now she has rediscovered movies she has forgotten about!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-use product! 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME PRODUCT Ive been looking for ways to store my cd's, and dvd's. It has been extremely miss and nothing really worked out for me. Until I was looking for a Christmas tree storage box and came upon THE CONTAINOR STORE, and found the exact place for my storage needs. I have been back couple times for things. The LARGE media box is perfect, I have purchased 2 of these for my cd's, and will purchase more for my dvds when I start organizing them. One of the most important things on why I will continue to purchase these items, MADE IN THE USA on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect DVD storage These boxes are perfect DVD storage. Packed them up in their full DVD cases, and can see all the titles through the top. Hinged lid allows you to open only one side at a time if you choose. The boxes weren't too heavy when completely full. Good size for shelf storage. Clear sides also made it easy to put temporary labels (i.e., just notebook paper) inside the box with a general description of the contents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Purchases elsewhere to find the right storage container for my various CD collection has been hit and miss. Nothing seemed to work. My CDs ended up every which way, loose, and rattling around in the container. Thought I would give my search one last chance. My efforts paid off. I found the Container Store and the perfect solution to storing my CDs. The container I bought is light weight, even filled with CDs in cases, and stores nicely under the bed. What a great find! Luv it! The store has some nice finds in it's many isles, great storage ideas and just a fun place to grouse around. Going back again, for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Media box is great I underestimated the amount of cd's, dvd.s and movies I own for storage. These are the perfect sized to fit and store all my items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sturdy, perfect storage I don't use my actual CDs much but am traditional and still like to have the hard copies (due to computer crashes and wipe outs), and this is a great way to store them. It fits lots of CDs and is convenient to see them all while all locked up. 120 CDs gets pretty heavy but the plastic this container is made from feels very study and like it will not just hold the CDs well but withstand moving them around when necessary. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Positively Posh for Notecards I was thrilled when I found this media box! The box supports my multiple copies of 78 photography notecards that I designed. The dividers provide instant organization by categories, making it easier to locate the perfect card. When I transport my products to other businesses or events for sale, the storage box displays the notecards easily for others to view. The top also folds in half when it is removed, a great feature for compacting. This is an excellent product that has multiple uses for various collections! I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for all of my CDs I have quite a CD collection and most of those are on my iPod, so I needed a better solution for holding my CDs since I don't need them readily available. This was the perfect solution. All of my CDs are now together in one place. I even had room for a couple of VHSs (yes, I still have some of those) that I needed to find a place for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the Digital Age We have well over 1000 CDs, but with iTunes and ever larger hard drives, more often than not we do not need the actual physical discs anymore. But of course we can't bear to part with our collection. So these Media Boxes were an absolutely PERFECT solution. We now have a nice stack of them, with our CDs neatly alphabetized. The clear cover makes it easy to see that we are opening the correct box. The stack-ability is great! The only con was a user error: I tried stacking 6 completely full boxes, and managed to crack the handle on one.

Does this box have a carrying handle on top?

Asked by: VineyardGirl
No, you would have to hold the box with both hands

Can the media box (both sizes) be used to store cassette tapes as well as CDs? Is there anything else available if not?

Asked by: anyak
It seems the best solution for storing cassettes is using two of our Linus™ 3-Section Tray(s) Clear (item #10049791) in the bottom of our Small Smart Store Tote Translucent (item: 10051177). In each Linus™ 3-Section Tray, you may store 15 cassettes for a total of 30 cassettes in this solution. This solution will enable you to store your cassettes with the spine of the each case facing up in the tote for viewing titles. You may double your storage by using the Medium Smart Store Tote Translucent (item # 10051178) (which is taller) and a total of four of the Linus™ 3-Section Trays stacked upon each other in two layers. In this solution you would have to lift out each of the upper trays to see the tapes in the trays below.

Blu-ray cases are slightly taller than DVD cases. Will they fit?

Asked by: rdgeorge55
The boxes are stored on their side so you can see the titles, and Blu-ray fits perfectly. I only have a few but you can see them in the picture.
