This document sorter looks good enough in the picture. Considering literature organisers and officey trays are not the best looking things, I was hoping this product would be useful for organising my mountain of papers whist not looking totally out of place in between my books and folders. I am disappointed with the quality, for the following reasons:
- it feels very flimsy. This is because it is made of really thin carton sheets, cut to shape for assembly. The cut bits and glued bits are not particularly accurate, so the product does not fit together neatly (sometimes you have to push sections in and the carton curls, some corners of blue paper get ripped as you fold them, etc). I do not think it will support weight well or last for long.
- it is not a great design, the surfaces inside the compartments are not smooth, because of all the folded-in carton bits, and so paper clips and such things tend to get stuck. Also, it is blue on the outside, the shelves are white and all inner walls are exposed carton.
Overall, expensive product that is not much more than a cardboard box covered in blue paper.
