I have always kept my negs in a regular binder and had to fight with dust and also sometimes ended up with these creases on my negs or on my prints from the binder rings. finally i stepped it up a notch and got this binder, its really a low price for something that does so much good for my things. So far the only downside is that the snaps holding it closed are somewhat hard to unsnap without breaking a nail- some may like that they can be sure it wont accidentally fall open. All in all, for the price its sooo worth it.

This product is used to store my negatives as well as prints for my photo classes. While the product is great for keeping dust off my negatives I have an issue with the clasps. They are hard to open and hurt my fingers.

      Works well for storing processed film in sleeves. The clasps are tight. Good for keeping dust out of film.

        I found this box great if you don't need regular access. It is sturdy but the snaps that keep it locked tight are difficult for me to open and at times getting a clean close in design doesn't allow for proper locking. Also I found the need to open the ring binder inside by the rings themselves and not a tab a bit hard when filled with negative sheets. I also am not sure if it's my negative sheets or the binder rings but the holes don't exactly match completely.

            Just received this product an so far so good in holding my film negatives and providing space for some extra images for scanning. Didn't like that the black was more expensive, but I guess it won't show the dirt like the white.

              This archival binder is alright. It's very sturdy and large enough for me to keep tons of prints inside plus my sketchbook. But I do tend to have a bit of dust collecting on the inner corners, but that's probably just my fault. Nothing compressed air can't handle though. All in all it's great.

                  I have using these for many years now. I still shoot film ocasionally and needed another binder.

                  Was good to see that it is still available at a very price and still Made in the USA!

                            I am using the product to store developed negatives before I print them. The tabs are a little difficult to open sometimes, but it proves that the product is has very little light penetration, if any. It's big enough to fit many sheets in addition to photographs.

                            This is a solid and cheap archival binder that protects chromes and negatives from dust and light. I'm using 8.5 x 11 inches Printfile archival sleeves. Only compliant is that one of the binders came with a small deformation in the corner, revealing low quality control during production.

                            Comments about Besfile Archival Binder With Rings 11-5/8 x 10-1/4", Black:

                            This is a nice and sturdy archival binder that will hold Photos or negatives that fit in a 8.5 x 11 format. My only compliant is that the rings are a little on the small side so it is easy to run out of space.

                            Nothing beats the Besfile binder.
                            Unbreakable, perfect design. Even when i use oversized print file sleeves.

                              it is great to store negatives, drawings, and anything else that you wouldn't want dust to get on.

                                  This binder neatly stores all of my 35mm, 4x5, and 6x7cm negative sleeve pages. They are compact, stackable, and archival quality. I have confidence that my negatives and prints are secure and organized.
