    It's a little expensive for what you're getting. Received today and haven't had a chance to use much so I'm not sure how durable it will be.

    Comments about Smead Expanding File without Flap:

    Great quality and sturdy construction. I have used the same Smead red rope alpha sorter for my HR filing for over 5 years and it is still in great shape. However, I may have to upgrade to this great new color!

    As a college student, using this product helps me keep organized with all my subjects. Keeps my papers nice and crisp so when I turn in homework, it's not all wrinkled! It also lets me file away my important documents. As a young adult, l it's my responsibility to keep all my files put away. Organization is key!

    The Smead Expanding File is convenient because it stands. We had a previous one just like this one and we daily used it for more than a year. Besides the ware of the time it was used it remain in good condition. I recommend this product to anyone who is needing a expanding file.


    mail organization at work

    By Anonymous

    from Baltimore, MD, USA

    Comments about Smead Expanding File without Flap:

    I have one of these on my desk because I get lots and lots of mail everyday. This file folder enables me to file the mail according to alphabet instead of filing everyday and when I get the clients file towork on I just check that letter of the alphabet and pull any mail pertaining to the client whose file I am working on at the time. Great time saver as to filing.

    Cartridge Comparison Guide
    • Cartridge Types
    • Ink & Toner Basics
    • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
    Cartridge Type
    Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
    Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
    Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
    Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
    What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
    Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
    Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
    Material Liquid ink Dry powder
    How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
    Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
    Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
    Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
    Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
