I really don't understand these threads.
They're both just folders, you know you can get the 9x9 sleeves and put them in literally any folder you like right?

Well honestly it doesn't really matter that much, whatever you can get for cheapest really.
I have an ultra pro, which I got for free and it serves me well, also most shops will stock their brand of sleeves (but it's all standard anyways).
Discussions on which brand is better are kinda pointless though, everyone will have different opinions so it really is up to you to try them both out and form your own opinion.

Actually, the slightly older false leather Ultra Pros are more durable than Monster binders. Monsters have a tendency to crack because of the material that the cover is made of, where as the faux-leather Ultra Pro does not.

Higher quality =/= more durable all of the time.

I prefer Ultra-Pro actually. Have had both kinds. I use a small pink Monster Binder for some cards and my larger blue Ultra-Pro for others.

I have used both and I will never use an ultra pro binder again. Most people who have ultra pros tell me that they just didn't want to spend the extra 15 at the time and have a binder now, so no need for the monster. All of them like monsters more.

I'll say right now that the UltraPro Collector's Portfolio and Pro Binder both suck compared to the standard Monster 3x3.

However, the UltraPro Premium Pro Binder is both better quality and more durable than any of the others. It's the best binder I've ever owned, and I've tried each of the ones listed above.

I have a Monster binder and I have a friend that has a Monster and Ultra Pro binder. While he may disagree (he somehow managed to screw up his Monster binder) I find that Monster is better quality for the cards. It wouldn't surprise me about the durability of the actual binder itself is true - my 2x2 Monster has a few small cracks, though I did get mine somewhat used, the material the Ultra Pro binder is made of seems like it would crack less easily. However, Monster binders have a much nicer feel to their pages and keep your cards protected very well.

Isn't it true you need to sleeve your cards in a Ultra Pro binder becuase of how big the compartments are?

If they are the same price, no one would get the Ultra Pro one.

The cards and sleeve seem to slide inside the slots of the Ultra Pro binder, and it is very annoying.
