Absolutely great for marker storage!
Totally love these cubes for my marker storage and plan to get more. I saw a video about these on Youtube. They do hold about 24 or 25 Copic Sketch markers in each section or 35 Tombow markers, the same amount for Distress Markers or 15 Spectrum Noir markers. The Copic and Spectrum Noir markers fit flush with the depth of the sections while the Tombows, Distress or Memento Markers stick out by an inch and a half.
Hope that helps!

A must buy.....so versatile!
These cubes are amazing! Very roomy and takes up little space. Shipping was super fast! You are able to stack them and two connectors are provided per cube. This makes it easy to connect the cubes from any of its four sides. It connects very easily by sliding on the clip and then placing them horizontal or vertical. I use them to store my Copic markers. I have 87 markers and they fit perfectly with a ton of room to spare. I purchased two and I will probably purchase more. I turned them on their side and the markers don't budge or slide out. They lie and stack perfectly. Making it easier to see the colors and use them. The X-dividers in the middle can be removed and you can use just the cube itself. It all depends on what you need. I love them and I will order more as I sort through my craft supplies. I would recommend it to anyone that needs to store small items that they can get to easily, but also what them contained neatly. They seem to be very durable and I'm excited to see what else I do with more of them! Happy shopping!

Great Marker Storage
I love these. I am using them to store my many alcohol,watercolor,etc markers,colored pencils.It is a much cheaper way to store them . I found them on sale at a craft store online for under 5 dollars apiece. I purchased a ton of them.
I would love to use the organize more or the stamp n storage marker holders but they are too costly. I have 6 filled Color Cubbies but that company went out of business again. It is amazing marker holder but half the cost of the organize more one, or the stamp n storage one .I am going to keep my most expensive stuff in the Color Cubbies and my specialty markers in these. Each section stores a ton. I have the full set of the memento markers,Spectrum Aqua,Spectrum Noir,Spectrum Illustrator, Zig Clean Color brush markers, gel pens, paint markers,colored pencils,watercolor pencils etc etc. As you see I need a lot of them. They have clips that clip them together .I haven't decided if I am going to clip them together.Its easy to take one of the cubes to my desk and use the markers/pen/pencils. If I had them connected it would take too much effort to put them back together if they were clipped. These are great cubbies. I am very glad I didn't spend the money on the expensive ones. These work great and I don't have to spend 500 dollars just for containers to store my markers.The only thing I don't understand is why the seller only allows you to purchase one at a time. Makes no sense to me.

LOVE these organizers!
This sits on my desk and holds the entire collection of Tombow Dual Brush Pens with room to spare! So, I included a few Wink of Stella Pens, and there's STILL room for more! You can get the entire collection of Copic Sketch pens in 4 of these, which are definitely on my wish list! Made of very strong clear plastic & included clips to hold together multiple organizers. You can even take the dividers out and have 2 vertical or horizontal shelves instead of diagonal.

Copic Sketch fits Perfectly. Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens fit perfectly but cap causes them to slide out somewhat.
Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens have a tendency to fall out (a little) due to the cap being bigger than the base (when cap is to the rear). This is only a problem when you store the pens horizontally. It is better for the right amount of ink to go into the brush to store them horizontally. You want the bottom of the pen visible as this is where the color indicator is. All the Sparkle has a great color chart for this Deflecto X Cube showing which colors to put in the 4 sections (based on the 80 marker set). All 80 markers fit in one Deflecto cube. The depth of the Deflecto (5-15/16") is perfect for the Real Brush markers. The markers are 6-1/8" long.
Copic Sketch markers (5-7/8" long) fit really well. You do not have the problem of them falling out as the caps on both ends are perfectly smooth. Tim Holtz Distress Markers are 6-7/8" long so they will stick out 7/8" (not a big problem). Marvy LePlume II are 7-9/16" long so they will stick out way too much. Tombows are 7-7/16" so they would stick out too much. Sakura Gelly Roll pens are 6" - perfect. Kuretake Wink of Stella are 5-1/2" long - a little short but probably ok although it's better to have a pen stick out a little than to recede and have trouble getting them out. Flair pens are 5-1/2" long.
I think I would like a cube with 4 square shaped compartments better than the triangular shaped ones. Gave it a mild review because of the cap problem.

Does what they are supposed to do.
I am a sucker for storage containers. I admit it. The Container Store is one of my favorite shops. I have two of these at work with 4 drawers, and they are perfect for rubber bands and paperclips. I bought the 2-drawer one for my desk at home, and I really like it. I've got all the little junk like lip balm, emery boards, pens, and eyeglass wipes off my desk and in a contained space, and I can still see what's in there.
The whole unit is 6x6x6. The drawers are slightly less than 3" high. You can stack these, which I do with the two at work, and they don't slip off. I have them shoved against the wall of my cube, so there isn't a whole lot of slipping to do anyway. But unless I hit them, they don't move.

Great organizer for artists
I have more pens, markers, colored pencils, and specialty pencils than I probably should, but with two of these my life is a bit more sane. They hold a ton of pens!!! It makes getting and storing my supplies easy and takes up so little space, especially when you stack them. The cube has a removable X divider and comes with metal clips to connect multiple cubes together. You can have it upright if you like, but the pens don't slide out like some other organizers. I'm definitely getting more if I get more supplies.

A Life-Saver During My Spring Cleaning!
This is my 2nd go-around purchasing these organizing cubes, this time to spring clean and organize my youngest niece's marker collection. This works like a charm, and allows you to separate the "ordinary paper" markers from the "specialized paper" markers. I would highly recommend this to moms or other family members who have die-hard artists who own numerous pens, markers and colored pencils for doing art!

Functional to store my various markers. I have more than one and it makes it easy for my granddaughter to be able to distinguish easily the markers that are for her use and protect my artist quality supplies. There are a lot of storage options out there including DIY but this works for me. It stores horizontal or upright, translucent to see what markers you have, stores quite a bit and doesn't take up much room. The next best thing would be if I could suspend all of my art supplies from the ceiling and keep my desk CLEAR (everyone has to have a dream). Fast shipping.
Overall, I would recommend.
