Mine just arrived, but they packed it in a really thin box and one corner of the base was broken off. I'm sending it back for a replacement and hopefully the next one survives. :(

They shipped the replacement quick! Took it out of the box, and the base is still intact, looking good... and the acrylic cover is cracked in two places. :mad:

If I'd kept the other one, I could have a whole one between the two, but I already returned it to an Amazon Locker yesterday. Pain in the ass.

Sorry to hear that sucks. Do you have any others to compare it to? Is it the product or just their shipping method?

It took me five tries to get three non-cracked ones a couple of months ago. Amazon was good about returns but still a bit of a PITA.

The cracked ones were packed incredibly lazily with thin cardboard and a couple styrofoam panels thrown in. The good ones usually came with an extra Amazon box on the outside.

So I don’t think it’s a manufacturing issue - more due to crappy packing.

Exactly. It's heavy and fragile and they pack it in such a thin flimsy box. This box would be fine if it was in a big carton with like a dozen of the carriers. But to take one out and ship it by itself, no, it's not built for that at all.

Maybe the third time will be the charm.

Returning would be a PITA for me since I don't have a car but still seems like it might be worth it

Are these large enough to fit paulson racks? I bought one that had a dice chip in it on amazon a while back that arrived damaged and was too narrow for paulson racks, it only fit the cheap chinese racks.

If your looking for cheap storage that lets you see what your storing but don’t care about display aesthetics you can peruse Amazon Warehouse for all the returned ones for half price or less. They still work, just not brand new.

I bought 2 of these and they came in and they're just as solid as the higher dollar versions I've bought in the past. So either I overpaid for the ones I originally had or these were a great deal. Either way thanks for the heads up!

I finally got one that wasn't broken! I returned the first 2 and they never shipped another until I bothered them. My coworker who returns stuff to Amazon constantly says this is what they do. After 2 returns they won't send you another until you hassle them. This time it was in bubble wrap and a better box.

Got mine yesterday and first thing i noticed when I picked up the package was a sound that a piece was moving. After opening it, it was thankfully a single black dice chip (weird) that was moving around inside the carrier. There was however a small crack on the side black plastic panel which I can super glue easily.

You would think that the seller would learn his lesson on packing this item but unfortunately it wasnt really case with mine. I got lucky
