Anyone bought one of these? I have a lot of counters from both Dungeon magazines and Fiery Dragon Productions (for Ptolus & Arcana Evolved). After I cut up the cardstock sheets to nab individual counters, I'm often at a loss as to what to do w/ them for storage purposes.
I'd like a way to organize them so I can easily get to something for an encounter. Would this product do the trick? A little hard to tell much from the picture. Thanks.
Personally I use snap lock bags to sort my counters out. Just sort them into relevant categories like undead, aberrations, PC types, etc., and label them as such. I do the same thing for my D&D minis.

Thanks for the reply/suggestion. These trays are so inexpensive I will probably just buy a few and see if they work for my purposes. I'm trying to stay away from minis, so if they work for my counters, then great. But now I have a plan "B"...

I have hundreds of counters for creatures and map elements, from WOTC, Fiery Dragon, Games Workshop, etc.
I've been using a toolbox with removable pots, which are held in place when the lid is locked.
It works sort of OK, but I usually make sure it travels flat, rather than swinging it by the handle, as thin counters have a habit of jumping trays. Can't complain, since it was designed for screws and such. Maybe time to add a thin layer of foam...?
i have thousands of counters for various war games, and i have used these types of trays for about 2 decades. i dont remember them being this expensive though. they are great for keeping the counters seperated and orginized. its much easier to find the right counters with them, and as long as you put the dead units back right, they will be organized from the git-go
For this product, definitely buyer beware. I received mine today and they are much smaller than the picture appears, and due to the structure of the lid to create thier stacking system, you lose about half of each compartment to "lid indentation", which is very difficult to see from the photo. For reference, only 6 "town portal" counters from Descent will fit in one compartment and still allow the lid to close, so really unless your game uses very small counters, or only has a few counters of any type you would want to divide out, I would steer clear and look for an alternative. Yes they are cheap...don't hope you are getting more than you are paying for.
