View Full Discussion So Tolarian Community College's Professor reviewed these awhile back and what I took away from it was that he felt they were adequate and better quality than their ultra pro alternative but too expensive at $20 each.
But the biggest concern he had, was that storing cards in the binder for extended periods of time (think 6 months to a year) would cause damage to the back side of the card. He believed that this was cause by the backing not being acid free but later put out a correction video stating the backing was acid free but the problem still remains.
I am still planning on purchasing as I plan on using the binder for holding my Standard Rares & Mythics, but I plan on keeping all the cards i store in these sleeved with perfect fits.
The top video is the original review, which you can see at the 10:00 mark. The second video is the correction he posted after that.
I have these and never had a problem with them leaving marks on my cards, but I sleeved my cards. The Monster Binder pages are slightly taller than DeckTutor, so they may not stay straight all the time, but the Monster Binder pages are great nevertheless.
I have both DeckTutor and Monster Binder, and while MB feels slightly better quality than the DeckTutor to me, the DT is better bang for the buck.
