Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Virgil2U Very strong durable boxes
These boxes are easy to put together and secure with tape, no need for an extra set of hands to assemble these boxes and they are strong and hold up to heavy weights and hard objects. They can also be stacked on top of each other without breaking down. In one box I put a sewing machine and the accessories with it in a box and put that box on top of another box with no problems affecting the bottom box. The sewing machine and accessories were well more than the recommended weight for the box.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JW429 Do NOT use these for shipping! Moving Only!
These boxes are not designed to take abuse and should be used for moving only (i.e., when you/movers will have complete control and handle them fairly gently). I used these for shipping via Fedex and as a checked "bag" on a plane and the boxes got destroyed, whereas other boxes I used survived just fine (though they were 5x more expensive).

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 Rajib Excellent moving boxes
I used these boxes to move out from one state to the other. These boxes are large enough to hold up plenty. I used 10 of 'em to move my fragile stuff from a studio sized apartment.
