I needed a new personal file as my old one was not surprisingly falling apart after almost 20 years. I didn't want an expanding file (never enough room for all documents) bur was having difficulty finding a suspension file box. After having a good look on Amazon this Really Useful file box seemed to be the nearest thing to what I wanted. And I'm very pleased with my purchase. It's so sturdy I can't imagine ever having to replace it and there is plenty room inside for loads of suspension files. My order included 5 suspension files rather than the 10 advertised, and when I contacted the seller about this I was very quickly sent a pack of 50! Enough to replace old tatty files for a long, long time. I'd recommend this for storing household documents - great value for money.

The A4 size box is more compact than the usual foolscap size but most items fit the A4. I use mine for suspending old 35mm negative files dust free. The box lids are slightly recessed so they can be securely stacked. Excellent next day delivery.

I hesitated to order these given some other reviews about quality and issues with capacity. The A4 19 litre box is sturdy and actually holds more than I expected for home filing purposes. Compared to the concertina type home filing boxes, these have more space and are easier to access but the box is still compact enough to store neatly. I ordered extra A4 files from another company as suggested by Amazon (50 for approx. £10 with plastic labels to attach as the folders in the box do not have labels.) The extra folders I ordered have metal edges rather than plastic which makes them slimmer than the ones provided with the box if space is an issue in terms of the number of folders you want to put in the box, though the folders included work well.

The design could be more exciting, but for the price, it does a great job! The boxes are very strong and can be stacked. Can be easily carried and handled. Will get more when I have more papers! :)

this seems to be a good quality rigid plastic box . However my idea was to utilise spare folder inserts with it but it is too narrow for that. My fault, but you can't assume that all fulscap holders will be the same width.

this product was ordered to replace my old filing cabinet, I chose standard delivery, but the item was delivered next day in excellent condition, the correct amount of suspension files included, nice study box and seems excellent for the job it was bought for

We wanted a storage system to replace the ageing and tatty pair of box files we use to keep important but 'current' documents in and this will fit in our cupboard.

Ordered it, it fits, it seems remarkably sturdy and well made and there's plenty of room for more suspended files if you need them.

It takes a lot more documents than were in our two box files and makes filing dead easy.

An excellent buy and I can strongly recommend it

Item received in time promised .nice quality. and at a fair price.only thing wrong, I ordered the wrong size!.But still it is still a useful box as the ad says.
Went to the trouble of re-packing, and using Amazons return system ,took it to Post office for return...they wanted £8 for second class postage!I still have the box

No fault of supplier.Amazons return system first class.As my woodwork teacher used to say....measure twice, cut once.

The one drawback with this great box is that there are no labels on the suspension files, so no way of knowing what you've put in each one, without going through them all. A small but vital issue for a filing system. I checked the manufacturer's website and they don't sell the labels or files with labels. Really annoying. What's the use of a filing system with no labels?

I've had a couple of these boxes before, they're great for archiving stuff from my filing cabinet in the attic. I too have previously had the issue others have mentioned of a box arriving broken but this one arrived fine and stacks nicely with the others.

I paid a few quid extra to have the ten suspension files included but as others have mentioned, they don't come with indexing tabs, which kinda makes them useless for most people. Amazon did me a partial refund that brought the price down to about the same as the one without files (I think they offered this to save on the cost of returning the box as I was going to just order the empty one afterwards anyway) so all's well that ends well. But anyone thinking this item represents good value with the files bundled should be aware that you won't be able to index/label them.
