I use post bound albums, although I make sure now days that they have 3 posts, I had a couple of albums that only had 2 and they didn't hold up well at all...I love the K and Company albums.
Back in the day when I was making 8.5x11 albums I was buying binders and covering them with fabric...they have survived for years....I have started collecting the 8x8 albums and have several, although I have yet to make any LO's that size.

What kind of pages do they have? Do they have pages like Creative Memories? I have seen one with protectors like the postbound albums, but I don't remember which brand it was. I recently got a Westrim strapbound, but it already broke (less than a month old).

You all must try this:

Use a 3 ring (preferrably a D-ring) as a "work in progress" album. I feel like I am like most people who don't scrap exactly in chronological order-I mean who is that organized?! So, as you complete layouts put them in the binder style. THEN....As you have worked well beyond a timeframe, say Summer 2007, or 2003 if your like me (lol)...then transfer them to a post-bound or strap-hinge, or whatever your preference is.

I personally don't mind leaving them in a binder style, except on those layouts where a picture or title might be split over the two pages. That's where I prefer a large post bound (at least 2" single posts).

I know it's not for everyone, but it works for me. I think We R and American Crafts have some great options.

I use American Crafts 12x12 3-ring binders, for a couple of reasons.

I like that I can have all my albums the same- they look so neat and tidy lined up on the shelf. Yes, I am OCD that way.

I like that I can put any size page in the album. I got the idea from a post on Ali Edwards blog earlier this year. I immediately loved it and pulled all my pages out of my post-bound album and dropped them into a 3-Ring. They're so easy to rearrange, too!
