Pros: 1. Easy to open to retrieve larger items

2. Trim design: looks OK in a block of four

Cons: 1. Flimsy, fiddly letter flap: why is it so narrow? It rattles in the wind and looks and feels cheap. A small improvement in the quality of the hinge and the thickness of the metal for the main casing too would help a lot.

2. The stainless steel has developed unsightly stains on its outer surface from the rain.

3. Windblown rain can get into the mailbox via the letter flap.

4. It is big enough (just) for A4 letters, but quickly fills up with mail and it can be a struggle pulling all the mail out. An increase in size of just 2cm on the height and width would make for a more effective product.

Pros: Stainless steel - it's what you need for outdoor products on the coastline. I needed a narrow box and this one is exactly the right size.

Despite the Cons below - I am a happy bunny.

Cons: A few niggles - the in slot which lines up against the letter flap was too small - I had to cut and fold. The little plastic name tab falls off. There is an "interior" posting flap that is no use to me. And it would be better if I could see whether there was any mail in the box without bothering to open it.

Pros: the post box looks good and is well put together. Cons: the entry opening is very narrow and there is no way to lck the top flap opposite it so most of the post that we wanted to drop into the secure storage area is simply pushed straight through both sides of the box ending up on the floor.
