Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kathryn25 Looks VERY cheap
Ok, so I know that it was kind of cheap- but for just a little more could have gotten something way better.
1. Lid does not fit. Period. Looks like it was made for a different product and shipped in the wrong box.
2. Flimsy- I was replacing a rubbermaid, and was shocked at the difference in quality.
3. Not as pictured- colors are washed out and cheap looking. They airbrushed out all the seams on the web pictures and where the lid does not fit properly. There is one picture on the website under "more views" where the box has a different top with groves in it! Must be the original that they stopped making to switch to a cheaper version.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR $$$$

I had some difficulty getting the lid to close properly. Even on level concrete, one side of the lid would not fit properly. I ended up finding a big rock and put it on the front right of the lid.
I also had to call Suncast to find out exactly how to install a lock. At first they told me this was not available on this model. Suncast did however, call me back and tell me how to do this. Since I still couldn't figure it out, they emailed me a picture - Then it seemed simple. I do not think I could of ever figured it out without the picture tho. I still have not gotten a lock, as the rock keeps the lid in place.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by betts Lots of storage, not real strong.
When I ordered this, I read the reviews. There was one that said this could hold two adults sitting on it, and that is what sold me on it. You cannot put two adults on it. You cannot set one adult on it, the whole things buckles. Maybe a kid, but then, it is too tall for some kids to get on. Also, if it will be in the sun, forget it. It gets soooo hot. This is definately NOT worth what I paid for it and I would NOT buy this item again. It does hold all of our pool stuff. It didn't blow away in the last round of storms we had, but, if I were to spend this much, I would buy something else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gardengirl great deck box
We got this box a couple summers ago to hold all our cushions. This is the start of the 3rd summer and it is still just as good as the day we got it. It sits out on our deck exposed to all the weather all year long. We get lots of rain, strong thunderstorms with lots of wind and lots of snow and never a drop of moisture inside. The plastic is still in excellent condition. It still looks like new. Didn't fade at all and it sits in the sun half the day. Definitely money well spent. Plus it doubles as a bench when we have lots of people over. Sturdy enough to hold 2 adults without worry of breaking it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BryanB better than expected
i am usually a little disappointed with "plastic" patio items in general because they are never as sturdy as they look in the pictures and the attention to detail is not there.
However, I am impressed with this storage container. It is very sturdy, definitively sturdy enough for two to sit on. You really can put it together in 5 minutes, and when you do everything lines up and snaps together as it was intended. No warped plastic, mis-aligned holes, or snap together connections that keep falling apart.
The container seems like it will stay dry inside; the bottom piece that the sides snap into is about 2 inches thick to keep standing water out. The size is nice too (26 inch height) because chair cushions can be stacked flat or on their sides.

We purchased this box with the intent of storing cushions in it on our deck over the winter... My recommendation is DON'T use this box outside. Yes it assembled easily, however, there are large holes behind each hing and the lid doesn't close securely. We are very much affraid that rodents will nest inside during the winter and hornets will build hives in it during the summer. If it hadn't been for the urgency of our requirement we would have returned it. Now the out door box will stay inside until nex summer when i can build one for us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AllisoNJ Great Deck Box
We needed outdoor storage for our 2 new chaise lounge and love seat cushions. This was the only deck box that I could find which had the accommodating inner dimensions. I was very happy that when it was finally assembled, it did indeed fit the chaise lounge cushions.
The box was very easy to put together. The top fits solidly and closes to keep rain out. It has an added shelf that you can either leave in or take out. We left it out because we needed the space for our cushions.
Another added bonus is that you can sit on it - though your feet may not touch the ground comfortably - unless you're super tall.
So, all in all, we were very happy with our purchase of this deck box. It fit 2 chaise lounge cushions and the cushions to our new love seat.

We purchased this box bc we needed something large enough to store our oversized patio cushions. This box did the trick, minus the storage tray.
It was easy to snap together, and seems to keep things dry (we have had a few good rains). We did caulk around the edges just to be safe, but not sure it's necessary.
Too soon to say how well it will hold up but it appears to be sturdy.
