Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Ordinary packaging tape does not stick
On the plus side, these boxes are extreme sturdy and quite inexpensive.
On the minus side, no ordinary packaging tape will actually stick to them. Which makes them useless.
This isn't unique to the Home Depot boxes, it seems to apply to nearly all corrugated boxes made from recycled material and provided in a "bare" finish. Rather than being smooth and dry, it seems to have a slightly waxy quality and a surface finish uniformly coated in a fine, dust-like material which is nearly impossible to remove.
All three of the Scotch tapes commonly used for such tasks (Moving & Storage tape, Heavy Duty packaging tape, and Reinforced Strapping tape) start to separate after a few hours or days, as did both types of packaging tapes the movers brought with them (one clear, one brown.) The thick, gummy adhesive used on duct tape does seem to stick reasonably well, but duct tape is quite expensive and far less convenient to work with.
Contrast this with either virgin material boxes or the shiny, laminated boxes which large retail items like microwave ovens come in- I've got a few of those which I've been dragging around since I graduated from college in 1999 (go Gators) and have been through a total of seven long-distance moves. The 18 year old clear tape on them as secure as it was the day I applied it.
Long story short: avoid recycled boxes for any sort of serious usage, such as handing over your belongings to a moving company and hoping that they all arrive still inside the box you put them into. Buy your boxes from a truck-rental company such as Penske or U-Haul. Neither of those have yet transitioned to using recycled material, and while they cost slightly more, they actually work properly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by qdiggles Doesn't Exactly Fit Vinyl Records
I bought these after reading someone else's review that these would fit vinyl LP's squarely, but as the pictures show, they do not. I had to put them on a diagonal to make them fit, and the top flaps wouldn't close flat, and I had to bend the cardboard flaps before taping so they wouldn't mess up the vinyl covers. All that being said, it's a pretty good medium duty box for under a buck....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lexie Love these small boxes!
For the price and the great quality, you can't beat buying this box! They were perfect for packing dishes, books, random small items. They were super easy to assemble and very sturdy. I'd buy these again when I move. They are also easy to carry. I could stack them and carry two at a time when loading my car.
