Like the title said. I have found myself keeping all of my hardware's original box during my end of summer cleaning. Well of course flattened out boxes. Maybe for easier resell or whatever. I just like to collect these boxes. What about you?

I keep them but usually only my most recent stuff not really collecting them. I found it a little easier to sell stuff that had boxes for pictures, conveys that you treat your stuff well.

I do keep motherboard boxes though just to store random boards in.

Yep, I love my original retail boxes.

I used to chuck them out but then I realized how much more comforting it is to see the original box.

It reminds me of going down the PC shop and seeing all the brand new hardware that's boxed up.

I collect them too. I keep all the packing and other little bits and pieces in them too and they take a fair amount of space in my home. :laugh: They really come into there own though when I have to transport the item, especially if it's big, bulky and fragile, such as a computer monitor.

Now, to take this nerdiness to a new level, I really like my PS4 Pro box, so I didn't put it in the cupboard, but have it proudly on display! Yes, the PS4 has been taken out of it and being used, don't be silly. :p Mind you, I could buy another one and keep that on display, all pristine and new and sealed...

Finally, the slowly disappearing into my room phenomenon happens to some degree as well...

Keep'em all as sooner or later i will re sell the item and it adds value, all so some company's you are required to have the box and believe Samsung is one of them.

I think some company's respect your RMA more too, and if i send a item in with the origianl box i expect the same back as it's part of what i payed for, Yes looking at you Razer.

I keep the boxes and everything that goes with it in case I need to sell the part. Most of the buyers I've dealt with ask if the part/s I'm selling come with the boxes and other stuff.

I keep them for a month or so to make sure I have something to send it back in if my HW needs RMA. After that I make sure I dont need it to keep extra stuff like my PSU box is the only thing I will keep since it has alot of unused wires I might need later. Otherwise I break it down.

I keep them, I feel it's an insult to the hardware I buy if I put them away like so, also I usually upgrade them and selling them in their boxes is a value to me, hardware, the buyer.
I keep my hardware, phone, tablet, tech gadgets even my necklaces and stuff xD and sometimes I give away some stuff, so in their boxes it's a good value ,respect and appreciation to the person having it.

I don't exactly collect them, just never throw them away immediately. I put all the boxes in my case box, which is huge, and stack it on top of the closet to save space.
I don't usually flatten the boxes though, since most of them has plastic/foam inside to keep the hardware in place.
The main reason I keep boxes are for warranty purposes. That's why when I replace/sell a hardware, I get rid of the box along with it.

I always keep them as well, but yesterday I had to damage one of them :D (my PSU box). I went to get a budgie but I did not have any good box to carry her within so with tears, I placed some air holes on the surface of my PSU box. Sad but true story..

  • In case I sell some hardware, then I still got the original box

I'm an original box hoarder.
If it's something personal, I keep the box for the sake of better resell value, and at least for the first few years - warranty.

When it comes to mundane everyday crap, I keep boxes from motherboards that I couldn't fix and dismantled for recycling. Those are perfect to store my other crap, like smaller boxes, smaller-smaller boxes, useless gizmos, and electronic components.
Also perfect for indefinite storage of unfinished projects (I have quite a few). All you need to do is dump everything related into the box, put a sticker on it with short description of whattaheck it is, what it's for, and put it away in the pile of similar boxes.

Did it for the same reasons but since our cellar was almost exclusively filled with boxes, I was forced by my wife to dispose most of them. :slap:
