Box works great with a bit of improvisation
Prior to buying this box, I'd tried everything to get my husband's extremely large cat to hit the litter box when doing his business. Everything failed. Every day I'd walk into the laundry room to find a puddle of urine on the floor or down the wall next to the box, often under or behind whatever I'd used (namely litter mats and painter's plastic) to catch his "accidents." This cat is seriously the Houdini of cats when it comes to doing magical things with his urine stream.
Then I found this box on BTA-MALL. I read all the reviews about it fixing the ol' peeing over the side of the box problem with other cats. I ordered it, thinking my troubles were over. They were ... for a day. Then I walked into the laundry room the next morning to find that he'd peed into the pockets where the supplies go. Well, at least he hit the box in some manner, right? Later that day I returned to find that he'd managed to pee out of the other side, over the plastic I had used to line a couple of inches of wall behind the box, and onto the floor. Dang it. *
At any rate, if you have a super pee-er, this box might do the trick on it's own but it's certainly not guaranteed. Here's what did work, though, and the awesome size of this box is what made it possible. I backed the box into a corner where it was surrounded on three sides (by two walls and my laundry cabinet). I placed my litter mat in front of the front opening in order to catch any urine that managed to escape in that direction. For the other three sides, I lined the walls in plastic and taped said plastic into the inside of the box. I'm attaching a photo of my set up. If he pees towards the walls or cabinet, it hits the plastic and rolls into the box. If he pees in the fourth direction, it at least gets caught by the mat. Yes, I do have to clean off the plastic frequently and change it fairly often (and it's certainly not pretty!), but at least I'm not bleaching my tile and walls twice a day.
So there you have it. I'm giving this box four stars for being large enough to allow this set up and saving my sanity, but removing the one star for not actually completing the job on its own. Also, the box is super sturdy and feels like it'll last a long time. The pockets on the side are nice, too. I don't think they make a liner to fit it, which is a minus, but I make my own out of painter's plastic.
Hopefully my review will help someone who wasn't able to make this box work all on its own!

Houston, The Litter Box has landed.
Got this box today. I have no experience with it as a litter box yet, but I'm sure it'll be fantastic.
The reviews don't prepare you for how enormous this box is.

Not much to say. It's huge, obviously. I love the two storage compartments on the side. In them, I keep a box of disposable bags, a scooper, litter deodorizer, and cleaning wipes. I think the only thing that would make it better is if the front wasn't curved. But it's great regardless.
As you can see from my photos, my 5 year old could "lounge" in it comfortably. That's seriously how giant this thing is.
And the other photo is it full with litter. When I bought this, I was curious about the height of the sides because it's hard to tell by photos. And thankfully the sides are high. To give an idea of how deep it really is, there is an entire 35lb bucket of litter in there, which makes a depth of about 3in of litter. Honestly more litter could fit and the sides would still be adequately high, even for cats that won't squat.
I would definitely recommend it, especially for homes with multiple cats and you clean it daily. I have four cats that share it with no issues.

Don't let the stock picture fool you
This cat litter pan is HUGE. Like gigantic. Don't let the stock image fool you. Please see the picture I uploaded. If this is the size that you are looking for then go for it! Quality is nice and it has 2 slots for scopes and other things.

Make sure you measure out the space you want to put this in because giant is not an understatement, it's twice as big as our other litter boxes. Kids seem to like it so far. The picture has my 10 lb cat in it showing his approval and the scale.

PERFECT FOR MULTICAT AND LARGE BREED CATS. RAGDOLLS AND MAIN COONS LOOK NO FURTHER
Finally got the picture to show the size. Got this for our three cats, they use this ginormous one and a jumbo box and all is good.
Most importantly, we needed something to accommodate the size of our Ragdoll when he is full grown in a few years. From past experience with Ragdolls, you can't use hooded litter boxes and Jumbo's can still be problematic.
THIS IS JUST WHAT WE NEEDED!
Funny how something this simple can make such a big difference. The side compartments are great for the sifter and bags. Thank you for making this! You will not regret this purchase, bit you may be shocked at the siz at first - even if you measure. I thought I'd be ready, and it still surprised me (pleasant surprise)

Good, but not perfect
I replaced 3 jumbo high-back hooded boxes with two of these. My cats love them. I have 3 large males and they love how spacious these pans are. Much easier for them to move around in. They are easier to scoop since I don't have to remove hoods, but I do wish this pan was designed with a higher back. Both of my pans sit against a wall and I have noticed some spray up on the wall and the top edge of the boxes. I will continue to use (and clean the wall) until it's time to replace these, but when that time comes, I'm going back to my previous configuration. One small slot for storage of the scoop would be great, but the two large storage compartments are unnecessary and make the box much bigger than it really needs to be. Heavy duty quality plastic, nice neutral color, and human-friendly but not the right pan for my home.

Mosly positive experience.
I think this great product is larger than the dimensions as noted in original representation ... which explains the numerous reports from other buyers having to send their purchases back. I measured carefully, but had to cut off the "tool/suply tray" portion to get it to fit into available space. That smaller part fits perfectly behind the litter box, so it's still a valued component ... but it was a bit of a hassle getting it cut off and all the cut edges filed and/or bound to eliminate sharp edges remaining after cutting the tray portion off.
It serves great for my 4 cats when scooped twice daily, and holds sufficient litter to allow them to do a good job for covering their contributions ... which really helps minimize cat box odor.

Awesome and gigantic
Awesome and gigantic. This litter box is truly huge - requires 2 full size jugs of Tidy cat cat litter to properly fill. It is also very long - I had to cut the pockets of the end to get it to fit in the closet I have it in. The material cuts very easily with a jig saw and a blade for metal and the edges are easily sanded smooth. I needed a new litter box since my new male kitty shredded the liners I was using in my old litter box. I run this one without liners and it works great for a 2 cat household.

This is HUGE!
I read many, many reviews before buying this litter box. Even reading them I still wasn’t prepared for how big this was and had to do a little rearranging to make it fit. This thing is HUGE.
That being said, we purchased it because our large cat was missing his box. No matter how we turned it or where we put it he would still miss. Since buying this massive box we don’t have that problem anymore. He no longer misses and we don’t miss cleaning up that mess.
The two built in storage bins are nice. We store the scooper and scented disposal bags in them. We have no problem with our cat going to the bathroom in the bins. We have noticed that we need to use more litter due to the size of the box, but that doesn’t bother us.
I would recommend this product for anyone looking for a large littler box or even a bathtub for a small child.
