At first, I was disappointed with the instructions. Its as if the manufacturer didn't think people who purchased this product could read. After getting past the 1st grade picture assembly game, I was pleasantly surprised that this is a durable cardboard product. The plastic front inserts are a bit flimsy, but overall, this $18 purchase is just what I needed. It's affordable, and does the job it's intended to do.
You do need to be careful when assembly is taking place though. For future purchasers, remember to fold the sides in before you fold the tops and bottoms in. That will make for a mess if you don't do it in that order. Tabs get torn and like one commented, it does not take much to make a mess of your cardboard project.
I'm satisfied with it. It would have received 5 stars if it would have considered step 1, 2, 3 and so on instead of "pictionary" instructions as well as giving 2 additional plastic fronts for the top and bottom of the box so it would look finished.

The mail in our office was piling up and no one knew where there mail was or if they even had it. I didn't need a lot of slots, so this was perfect.
The cost, size, and functions as great.
There are three black slider you put over the front in order to place the name tags for the slots. There really NEEDS to be a fourth because without it, the bottom slots are nearly useless. It really is a great buy, though!

Rated 1 out of 5�by DrElle Extremely disappointing!
Unfortunately I don't agree with the only other review on this product. It is cardboard and that's fine. I expected that. The assembly and quality, however, leave MUCH to be desired! The instructions are pictoral only, no letters to show which flat pieces get folded which directions. Simple to assemble really once you get your brain around the pictures but the quality was so poor it was only the beginning of the trouble.
The outer surface of the box ripped even when carefully following the directions and unfortunately it doesn't get covered by the cheap plastic divider covers. The covers were so tight and of such brittle plastic they broke on assembly. Plus they were stressing out the easily bendable cardboard in the process of my trying to get them on. I am EXTREMELY dissatisfied with this purchase and hope I can exchange it for something better! I'd pay more to get more. This is ugly and completely unsatisfactory!

Well, going in, you have to understand that this is cardboard, but being a Banker's Box, it's sturdy. It was easy to build and holds quite a bit of paper. It was well worth saving lots of money to get this versus a metal/plastic version.
