Kitchen storage dilemma

[KitchenStorageFilter]: OK, this is pretty mundane, but we'd like to toss our old kitchen storage/Tupperware-wannabee containers and would appreciate some recommendations so we can replace them with something good.

These sorts of purchases seem to persist for a very long time, so I want to make a good decision this time around. The last time we did this was 10+ years ago with an extended set from Costco, and those containers sucked.
I've recently seen the Snapware
containers at Costco and Target, and they seem to have some attractive qualities: removable rubber seals, compact storage, fairly cheap, etc. So for purposes of getting a conversation started, I'll put those out there as something we're looking at, but I worry that the hinges on the sides of the lid will fail pretty quickly.
Last data point: We use these mostly for leftovers stored in the refrigerator, so they don't travel much, however, they will be subject to a horrific number of hot/cold and wet/dry cycles.
