    I've got roughly 20,000 slides in projector carousels that need to be scanned to digital. Because they are taking up far too much room in my office I purchased these boxes to try and reduce some of the wasted space. These were by far, the highest capacity storage boxes I could find.

    The outer box itself is well constructed and I have no doubt that it will last quite a long time. The latches leave a little to be desired as they're kind of fiddly to get done up, especially with full trays inside the box. This isn't a huge deal if you're not accessing the box regularly, but would be irritating for daily use.

    Also, the box lid feels as though it's pressing against the slides in the upper tray when you try to latch it up. This makes me a bit nervous but I don't think it'll destroy anything..

    Last on the box itself, each has a hard plastic handle rivited atop the lid. This completely prevents any stacking of boxes without storing them back in the original cardboard packing boxes. This seems a bit silly to me.

    Inside, the plastic trays were disappointingly flimsy, the bottoms of each tray were thin enough that some compartments had small holes in them. (They remind me of those cheap plastic trays you get starter plants from a greenhouse in) Since this isn't a high use piece of the box it isn't likely this'll cause any grief right away, but plastic does break down and I would hazard a guess that if you were archiving slides for a long time you may see that the bottoms will fall out at some point. --This is a guess.

    Finally with the trays, although these boxes are advertised to hold 1500 slides, in practice I've ended up breaking down 36 slide Airquipt cartridges to two compartments each, meaning that I managed to fill one Logan box with 1080 slides.

    Due to varying thickness of each slide, some groups of 18 seem to pack in a compartment fairly tight, and others seem extrordinarly loose. While I have no doubt that you might be able to squeeze 1500 slides in to these boxes, my concern would be that the film might end up rubbing against its neighbour and scratching one or both in the process.

    For long term storage, these are the most economical boxes I've found, though I might be tempted to try paper boxes instead. For short-term storage, say 1 to 5 years I think these are more than suffiicent and they definitely meet my own needs for the time being.

    Sides fit snugly in compartments, easy to see, easy to carry. But there are large holes in the corner that allow air, bugs, dust to enter. Also, front latches do not feel secure, as if they could unhook while carrying and fall apart.

    I need long-term storage, and I'd need to put this in ANOTHER box to keep it truly secure.

      I am in the process of scanning all my slide collection and I needed a good way to save and protect the slide I planned to keep. The Logan box is well made and the divider inserts make easy to catalog the keepers.

        Comments about Logan Electric Slide File #1500G For 1500 2 x 2" Slides - Double Latch:

        I have several of those boxes, purchased from different sources over the years. They are good, solid and simple to use. However, one of the two I just purchased from B&H looks like a demo (open box, slight signs of wear) and has a broken latch (the metal spring blade fell off) that is not user-repairable. This would have been easy to spot during QC (B&H, Logan?). Maybe they are not as well made as they used to be.

              I already had a single tray version for probably 30 years. Plastic inserts in new one are not as sturdy, but plenty good. I think capacity is overrated. I have trouble jamming that many slides in, but that is minor.

              Best choice available for storing slides that I could see. It is sturdy - don't have to worry about cardboard collapsing.

                  I have been using these slide files (both 750 & 1500 size) since 1979 and now have over 55 of the units. Recently I have been going through all of my slides for scanning and have not found any prroblems with the stored slides. The plastic liner has not broken down, the slides are not covered in dust, the latches have remainded secure, etc. And most of these units have been through numerous moves (including mailings)as I was in the Air Force until 1996. So, at least through my personal experience, I have not had one problem or concern in using the slide files. Except for the cost: I wont' mention how much the price has risen over the years.

                    The metal boxes are spot welded;the top and bottom drawers with the hinged front panel are convenient.
                    The top handle is not recessed, so you cannot stack the boxes on top of each other; the inner dividers are paper thin cheap molded plastic and are extremely fragile. Slides are stored in bunches instead of individually.

                      Although it seems a good idea for storing slides, it is too heavy and it is not possible to store one over another due to presence of the handle. Furthermore, its interior fittings are very frail and capacity is far less than 750 slides, as advertized.

                          This is a real nice way to keep all your old slides safe and secure without the space of carousels but [$] seems a bit much for a very thin metal box and a couple of thin plastic trays.

                              A good sturdy metal box for slides. The plastic trays which hold the slides are a bit flimsy but it seems to work. Time will tell how well they hold up. Not sure how dust tight the box is, but compared to other storage boxes to hold a large number of slides, I'm quite pleased overall.

                                I am preserving my sides after converting to digital. Reduces storage space and is a solidly made product. I can find not fault in this product.

                                It allows me to organize, label and store slides from carousels that had taken up four storage shelves. They stack neatly, (I added small, neoprene pads to each bottom corner which clears the handle below nicely.) It's nice to get a bit of my carousel money back from selling the extra carousels also. I kept a couple of carousels to project them but as I scan them I can see them on the big TV screen. I also have a small stackable loader that lets me see the slide directly from the cases, the drop front make access to the bottom tray easy. Well built and good looking. A great product.

                                  I have used these before to organize my own slides for commercial scanning and then to store them. I was happy with that experience so I recently purchased these to organize and store thousands of slides my late father-in-law took.

                                  The plastic "liner" is black vs. yellow as in the photo. The plastic is a bit flimsy. The construction seems to be OK

                                    Good price, my only problem is trying to load the lower tray. The support for the upper tray interfers a bit.

                                    I am happy with the quality of workmanship. The small package is exactly what I needed for reducing the storage space for my 35mm slides.

                                    Sides fit snugly in compartments, easy to see, easy to carry. But there are large holes in the corner that allow air, bugs, dust to enter. Also, front latches do not feel secure, as if they could unhook while carrying and fall apart.

                                    I need long-term storage, and I'd need to put this in ANOTHER box to keep it truly secure.
