MonoPrice Please Change Cut Size to Match what Printed on Box
Nice Box...works for my application. Do not cut your rough in cut your box until you have the box delivered. I almost made that mistake. The product description would have made my cut outs 1/2 inches larger than the box size.
PROS: Nice 2 gang box for old work application
CONS: Product needs to be changed on website before people make a horrible non-fixable problem.
This is a good device box if you need it for re-work such as installing in existing drywall.
Issue I had is that for new walls this box needs to be modified a little so that it can be screwed in the side of the studs (i.e. remove flaps and pre-drill holes for screws).

This is very inexpensive and and usually you get it the following day. I used this to run wiring for my audio/video equipment located inside a cabinet. For the price, it cannot be beat. I ended up drilling holes on it to accommodate my custom cables.
PROS: inexpensive the mounting screws are attached to it, so you cannot lose them non-conductive hard plastic, you can drill holes on it
