Any opinions and reasons for choosing lateral versus conventional front facing files? Also, unless it violates board rules, are any brands better or worse?

My personal opinion: go with front facing, unless lateral is actually more convenient from where your fanny is parked in your chair. If you have to twist, you will be less likely to actually file anything.

...because that's what fits my studio space.
I think I'll stick to front-facing in my next studio because that's what I'm used to.

Laterals tend to look better in the room, but I prefer front-facing. I have both in my office. I use the lateral for reference material and files I don't often access. The front-facing is for the everyday stuff. For me, the body position when using a lateral file is just too awkward.
