Boveda Humidor

What do you guys think about this humidor by Boveda?  I have been using Xikar travel, Boveda bags and 65% packs as my humidors with great success for years.  Now I am looking to invest either a conventional wood humidor or a boveda acrylic humidor.

I'd go with tupperdor and save coins for 150qt coolidor, as Boveda Acrylic Humidors are literally same as tupperdors with just being more pricey.

Iris 46 qt weatherproof with a couple boveda 62s. Start stacking them. They work like a champ in my basement.

Are you responding to your own original post giving yourself advice? Not sure I follow...

From the responses I would stick with boveda bags instead of investing a new humidor for now.

Got it. That is a good idea. It is a set up that works very well.

  *Very eye catching: I would presume one should line it with cedar sheets...*

Pffft.  Ziplock bags!  ?

@SenorPerfecto, @rcarlson - technically, tupperdors and ziplocs are functionally just fine.  Your points are taken.  But there’s an aesthetic element for many as well.  A beautiful desktop humidor can offer a lot of enjoyment for the owner, even though a plastic bag would work.  Kind of like having a Mercedes or a bus pass. Both will do the same, but one is a lot nicer.  No?  ?

I would say the analogy is a Honda Civic versus a Porsche.

Stop trying to broker a peace, Brian.  This is jihad.

I think the Boveda humidor is too small for the money. If you are looking for a desktop unit I think for about the same coin I would get a 150-250 count wooden humidor. I think the advice from @mtd057 is definitely great here, whatever size you think you need, you should probably go bigger. This is the route I would go. I just prefer the look of a wooden desktop over other methods of storage. 

I know plenty of folks that buy a setup that includes a container similar to the ones mentioned by @fitzy and @Str8BlkCoffee , combine it with cedar trays from Amazon, and throw in a Boveda packet for humidification. That way the cigars are still kept humidified in cedar but you can get to a much larger storage capacity for a LOT less money.

Yup I keep cedar trays in one box for the loose cigars the rest are kept in the boxes, plus I reuse some boxes for lose cigars too. Also the cedar sheets from boxes all go in the bottom of my boxes as well.

Well technical from my experience desktop humidors even the nice expensive ones are no where near as efficient at maintaining humidity.
