    The zip-closed, three-ring binder is a great idea, but why-oh-why did the manufcturer choose an O-ring. The D-ring style is easier to use and is much more functional. It holds 1/3 more pages than an equivalent size.(As in genealogy searches, sometimes’ less is more!’) TWhen tabbed, the outer edges of the total set of pages are much more easily viewed and the inner edges don’t curl under the curve of the rings.
