To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It was a little tricky to put together, but the part where I ran into a problem - if done correctly - makes for a very solid unit. Closing the lid takes a little practice too, but it closes very securely. It is a very nice bin and protects its contents from dust. It's easy to carry with its built-in handles. It is opaque, so it won't allow light to come in and potentially damage my comics. I also like the space that was created so I can print a label for the bin. The shape of the space is about the dimensions of a comic book, so I simply printed the cover of the first edition of the run in the correct size and inserted it accordingly.
Note: You can purchase additional separators for the bin. Make sure, though, that you order the correct ones marked as "SHORT." I ordered others from the same company, and they were a little too large. Not too big of a problem, as Amazon accepted the return and I ordered the correct ones, which work very well.
As an engineer I appreciate (but rarely find) products that are truly well designed but this is one of those products. It is impossible to assemble incorrectly but nevertheless comes with clear instructions. It is sturdy, stackable, looks great and I love the adjustable partition for keeping your comics upright even when the box is only partially filled. I bought one and as soon as I received it, bought two more. If you want to take good care of your comics, this is a smart investment.
The BCW comic book bin holds all the books upright including any backing support you may have. Acid free and light blocking to preserve your collection. Be sure to order the partition pack to fill out this bin. Stacks beautifully for a nice neat storage solution. Perfect!!!
This is a great product and my first choice in storage, but the company is getting very greedy and pricing themselves out of reason. This item has steadily gone up over 60 percent in the last few months since I bought my first box. May be a great product, but not necessarily worth the constantly increasing cost.
It’s sturdy and holds comics. What more do you want? I was hesitant because people were complaining that the plastic broke, but I realized upon assembling the product that those issues were user errors and not at all universal.
