I see that one review cited the lack of cubic inch capacity of this box. True that it is limited, there are ways to make it work. Sometimes, there is simply not enough wall thickness to place a box. By using an extension box, (search Wiremold non metallic extension box on HD site) the cubic inch capacity will be met. For example, the Wiremold Model # NMW2-D looks great! Sometimes, the Code Book doesn't fit in the wall! This B108B box works well for low voltage work and will provide more fire rating and less air infiltration than a low voltage ring. Carlon's Zip Box Blue wall boxes may be used in both 2 and 1 hour fire rated wall assemblies.
The more I think of it, It's uses are endless.

BE CAREFUL! There aren't a lot of uses for this box that are compliant with the national electric code (NEC). Following are the only uses that I can think of that are NEC compliant:
-Connecting two NM (2) 14-2 cables (hot-to-hot and neutral-to-neutral) with NO GROUND
-Connecting a single NM 14-2 cable with NO GROUND to a light switch or wall receptacle
The following are connections you CANNOT MAKE due to size limits being exceeded:
-Connecting single NM cable WITH GROUND to a light switch or wall receptacle (unless you use 18 AWG wire - not common)
-Connecting two or more NM 14-2 cables WITH GROUND
-Connecting two or more NM 12-2 cables WITH OR WITHOUT GROUND
-Connecting any combination of 12-2 cable to a light switch or wall receptacle
There may be other allowable uses if you limit yourself to small gage wire (18 or 16). If what you're trying to use this box for complies with NEC requirements then this is a great product, but I'm only giving 2 stars because it can't be used for most common household wiring setups.
