      Best Slide File, for Over 40 Years!

      I have been using the Logan Electric Slide File #200 to store color slides since I took my first slides in 1969, and now have over 70,000 slides protected in over 70 of these sturdy metal boxes. The files have kept the slides archived safely in my half a dozen moves across state lines to new homes. The files are a good mix of a convenient size (each holding up to 750 standard size slides) and archival protection. The first ektachrome slides I took over 40 years ago have maintained their color quality in the darkness of these metal boxes far exceeding the usual expectation of color life for such film.
      This is the best model made by Logan Electric as the slides are stored right in the metal box whereas some other Logan models have plastic inserts or dividers that decrease the quantity of slides that can be stored, or have flimsy plastic inserts that could become brittle over long term storage. I prefer this storage method to slide trays with multiple drawers, because the slides in this single slide depth tray with lid are better protected from light and dust. The single metal trays are also sturdier than boxes made of archival cardboard or metal boxes with multiple drawers (which are far more expensive).
      The model 200 comes with cardboard dividers that separate the box into compartments each holding 25 plus or minus a couple of standard slides. The dividers have to be removed from a larger sheet and you need to clean off their edges before inserting in the box to remove any loose chaff. The cardboard is not archival quality but this has not been a problem in my experience (the paper in the old carboard mounted slides was not archival either). It would be easy to trace a pattern on archival cardboard stock if you wanted to replace the dividers that come with the box.
      Very rarely there has been a manufacturing defect that narrowed the metal channels dividing up the boxes, so that some of the sections could not hold 25 slides each. This has happened in only a couple of my 70 boxes, less than 3%. If you stack the boxes on top of each other the clasps that close the boxes might scratch the bottom of the box stacked above it. I have solved this problem by placing small stick on felt pads on the bottom corners of the boxes; this also will keep the metal boxes from scratching the surfaces they are sitting on. If you move frequently, save the original cardboard boxes for packing and protecting the files.
      Logan Electric was bought out by another company a few years ago, but the files are still marketed under the original name and model numbers. While the price has gone up considerably in the decades since I bought my first file, they are still a bargain given the quality of the product. Purchasing through B&H provided the best price and quickest service I have found, beating even factory direct prices and shipping charges.
      After over 40 years, my first Logan slide files are still in use, and the newest ones I purchased from B&H are of the same high quality. No product has come along in all that time that does a better job of storing and protecting my professional and personal slide collections.

      I own about 20 of these slide boxes and recently purchased two more. Logan's quality control was never superb, but my latest two samples show it's now worse. The latch design is adequate but has changed from the picture on this web site. They used to come in a closeable cardboard box which I saved to store the slide box; those boxes can no longer be closed without tape. The slide tracks vary from too narrow at the front of the box, to about right by the rear, meaning my slides sit canted in the box. Obviously, this means I'm not getting 750 slides in a box. Disappointing to say the least, and my last purchase of a Logan slide box.

          A well made metal slide file. Weighs almost 5 pounds and latches solidly.
          It comes with heavy paper dividers that are adequate but I wish they were a little more durable like plastic.
          It also comes with an index that I guess is intended to attache to the inside of the lid. It's flimsy paper -a heavier paper would be better.

              This is a good solid solution for slide storage. I really like these and plan on ordering more as I need them. Got stacks and stacks of slides to store. This is a great box and so glad it holds so many of the slides. A lot more solid than I was expecting. In my opinion probably the best slide storage solution.

                I'm in the middle of digitizing hundreds of old 35 mm family slides, and needed protective storage. While the pre-determined slots for dividers don't necessarily coincide with my organization, I don't find it a problem as I'm looking more for storage than organization. I'm planning on ordering a second one now as I have more slides than I anticipated.

                  There are very few people who still view their 35mm slides with a projector. The best solution is to convert them to digital and archive the slides in a permanent safe protective file. Slide trays and Carosels are too bulky for something not likely to be used again. the solution is the Logan Slide File. An all metal compact tray with a securely latching lid. It holds 750 2x2" slides with markable dividers. This is the best slide storage solution I have found. I can be stored in a minimal space.

                    Back in 2009, I panned this product for sloppy construction standards and lack of a closeable cardboard box, which had been available previously. Based on the most recent review, I recently purchased three more of these slide boxes and am happily surprised. The closing cardboard box is back (which I use for storage and transporting), the slide box itself seems more robust (riveted and welded latches; back to the original latch design), and each row is the proper width. Best slide storage solution on the market.

                        I love these boxes! Great product. I just received three and they're identical to the vintage #200. The rows were perfectly aligned and the cardboard box is sturdy and closes without tape. Identical to the vintage #200 box in every way. This product is a gem! The best!

                            Like many people, I had carousels of 2 x 2" slides from many decades back. A friend recommended moving the slides from the carousels and putting them into these boxes for easy storage. Since each box held up to 750 slides, I was able to consolidate 30+ carousels into 4 of these storage boxes--saved so much space and I still have the images close by if I want to view them. Did like the idea of the double latches to ensure the boxes did not accidentally open. Much thanks to B & H Shipping Dept who had these boxes in my home within 2 days--thanks so very much.

                              I bought these to store family slides taken many years ago. We previously had slide files purchased from Montgomery Wards(!), which are better because they are lighter and don't have the cardboard separators (that shed paper) that others have commented on. Overall, I am pleased with the purchase.

                                I ordered product Sunday evening and had on my doorstep that Thursday, NY to Seattle, regular UPS shipping!!

                                Boxes will do the job, giving me easy access to slides as I periodically go back to the original to rescan as technology improves. Great step up from my ammo boxes and 35 piece slide boxes and about about 40% space saving.

                                Might consider adding a 3rd hinge for redundancy.

                                    Well made. For several reasons I figured this one was the better of the logan boxes. FYI only 17 gepe 2mm slide mounts will fit in each section. But you don't have to use the cardboard dividers or at least all of them.

                                        So glad these Logan Model 200s have been available in the same style/color and quality over many years. Our slides are well protected on shelving we designed to hold these sturdy metal cases stacked 3-high. We buy 3-6 at a time when we order them, and being able to get them delivered to our door from B&H saves time and money.

                                          Comments about Logan Electric Slide File #200 Holds 750 2 x 2" Slides:

                                          I have been using the Logan Electric Slide File #200 to store color slides since I took my first slides in 1969, and now have over 70,000 slides protected in over 70 of these sturdy metal boxes. The files have kept the slides archived safely in my half a dozen moves across state lines to new homes. The files are a good mix of a convenient size (each holding up to 750 standard size slides) and archival protection. The first ektachrome slides I took over 40 years ago have maintained their color quality in the darkness of these metal boxes far exceeding the usual expectation of color life for such film.
                                          This is the best model made by Logan Electric as the slides are stored right in the metal box whereas some other Logan models have plastic inserts or dividers that decrease the quantity of slides that can be stored, or have flimsy plastic inserts that could become brittle over long term storage. I prefer this storage method to slide trays with multiple drawers, because the slides in this single slide depth tray with lid are better protected from light and dust. The single metal trays are also sturdier than boxes made of archival cardboard or metal boxes with multiple drawers (which are far more expensive).
                                          The model 200 comes with cardboard dividers that separate the box into compartments each holding 25 plus or minus a couple of standard slides. The dividers have to be removed from a larger sheet and you need to clean off their edges before inserting in the box to remove any loose chaff. The cardboard is not archival quality but this has not been a problem in my experience (the paper in the old carboard mounted slides was not archival either). It would be easy to trace a pattern on archival cardboard stock if you wanted to replace the dividers that come with the box.
                                          Very rarely there has been a manufacturing defect that narrowed the metal channels dividing up the boxes, so that some of the sections could not hold 25 slides each. This has happened in only a couple of my 70 boxes, less than 3%. If you stack the boxes on top of each other the clasps that close the boxes might scratch the bottom of the box stacked above it. I have solved this problem by placing small stick on felt pads on the bottom corners of the boxes; this also will keep the metal boxes from scratching the surfaces they are sitting on. If you move frequently, save the original cardboard boxes for packing and protecting the files.
                                          Logan Electric was bought out by another company a few years ago, but the files are still marketed under the original name and model numbers. While the price has gone up considerably in the decades since I bought my first file, they are still a bargain given the quality of the product. Purchasing through B&H provided the best price and quickest service I have found, beating even factory direct prices and shipping charges.
                                          After over 40 years, my first Logan slide files are still in use, and the newest ones I purchased from B&H are of the same high quality. No product has come along in all that time that does a better job of storing and protecting my professional and personal slide collections.

                                            I have about 5000 slides to store. I ordered one to see if it would do the job. Seems to be about the best way to store lots of slides in a compact space. I will buy some more.

                                              I've been using the Logan slide files for over 40 years and they contain 25,000 of my slides taken between the years of 1953 and 2006, as well as about 1500 slides of my Dad's and a similar number of my father-in-law's. They have worked superbly and kept the slides in A-1 condition. For me, there are no negatives.

                                              I've purchased many of these over the years and I fully agree with another reviewer's comments about Logan's quality control. My biggest problem is with the lack of uniformity of the track widths which vary from front to back (think trapezoids rather than rectangles). Some slots are too narrow to accept slides while others are so wide that the provided cardboard separators won't stay in place. I just received three of these. One was good, one was so-so, and the third was completely unusable. When I was able to buy these in person, I used to take a cardboard slide with me so that I could check the fit before I made the purchase. I wish that there was another choice, but I'm not aware of any company except Logan that makes all metal files.

                                                For archiving 35mm slides. The best you can use. Only question is whether you want group storage (bigger capacity) or the model that fits individual slides.

                                                    I have 13 of these, purchased over a few years. They work exactly as advertised... Quality, fit and finish are consistent. These are well made metal boxes that should last many years, especially for long-term storage.
