I was excited to purchase this filing cabinet because I had a difficult time finding one that locked mulitple drawers and looked like a decent piece of office furniture. I read in the reviews that it was cumbersome to assemble, and I can tell you that my husband's frustration with this fully supports that notion. It took him nearly a day to assemble partly because we received instructions in Spanish, not English. Also, there are multiple parts that do not fit together well. As a result, the drawers needed to be adjusted quite a bit and I don't know if they will ever be perfect. Once I added my regularly-sized files, I had to shim up the front of the cabinet to avoid it trying to tip over when the bottom drawer is open. I am happy with the look and functionality of the cabinet, but at this price point it doesn't weigh out the frustration it takes to put it together and the fact that the parts don't fit together nicely. Two corners on the particle board for the backside were damaged as well, even though you will never see it. I just expected a little more for the amount of money I paid but it will work for a home office. I would hate to have to use it every day! The bottom of the drawers use particle board, and I laid some larger files there because they don't fit in the stand file hangers and the weight is supported just fine.Read More
All the reviews same the same thing and I should have listened. I experienced the same: 1) the directions are horrible. It did take a while to put together, and the assembly wasn't that difficult - after you figure out on your own what to do. It would be MUCH easier with better directions. 2) the top two drawers align with the frame, but the bottom two (file cabinets) do not. AT ALL. They are about 1-1.5 inches indented from the outer frame. 3) the lock is shoddy. It locks, yes, but when you give locked drawers a tug, the opposite side of the cabinet still tugs open a little. Also, note that the lateral drawers don't hold files laterally. Instead, they hold two rows of files per drawer, perpendicular to the front of the drawer. Sort of a waste of space, as if the files were held laterally, you could get a lot more in each drawer. I should have noticed this in the picture with the drawer slightly open. Overall, it looks nice, but I expected "espresso" to be chocolate brown - this is more blackish brown - and doesn't match my espresso desk. For the money, it's not worth the piece of furniture purchased.Read More
This is one of the most poorly manufactured pieces of furniture that I have ever put together. I'm pretty good at putting furniture together, but this took an entire day because so many pieces didn't actually fit - holes had to be adjusted, pieces had to be forced together to fit, etc. When we finally got it together, it managed to stay together for just a few months before drawers started coming apart and literally falling onto the drawers below. This is the biggest waste of money ever.Read More
I will never buy the product again and not ever tell anyone to buy it. Cheap lock. every thing about it was way below any thin that should be on the market...Read More
Product was poorly made. Instructions were terrible and also were wrong. I would never buy any product from this company again. It was a waste of my time and energy.Read More
This product looks pretty good in the pictures, but the quality is not terrific. I don't believe it would hold the amount of files it's sized for as it is not all that sturdy. It was a little difficult to put together compared to some of the other home assembly furniture we have purchased in the past. My husband ended up adding an additional panel of plywood on the back to give it more rigidity. It looks nice, but I don't imagine it will hold up well and we will would not purchase this name brand product again.Read More
It's very flimsy and cheaply made...not the quality I expected. It was also missing a part.Read More
This item is exactly what I wanted to include in my office space for my new business, no other product exists like it, therefore I bought it, knowing the reviews were so bad. Not happy! No directions included, very poor construction. A total nightmare to put together! Now that it is together, quality is very very poor.Read More
I purchased 3 of these to go wall-to-wall in my office. Lots of drawer space. It's great to have the height and width of these. I paired it with two bookcases on top of each end one and put a TV in the middle. Really made the entire room look spacious and streamlined. Only downside is that the drawers are a bit rickety, but for the price, it's still good.Read More
Several scratches in the drawers when received. Lock mechanism does not work. Will not line up with holes in the pre fab cuts. Overall is made very cheaply and as I do want another one as needed 2 of them. Do not believe I will order another one.Read More
