I have had this card for 3 yrs now. Assembly was hindered by confusing instructions. Even though this was put together very tight, the weight of the microwave has caused the cart to wobble. At first, just a little and now it wobbles a lot! I have to buy another cart because I definitely feel that this one is going to wobble and fall apart at this time. Also, the rear of the car is literally made of cheap cardboard, so that if anything on the shelves pushes against it, it becomes detached from the back and looks awful. This is more of a temporary piece (like college or a summer cottage) because it has a life span of no more than 3 yrs.
This cabinet is perfect for my needs. I bought it to hold my microwave and large toaster oven. The slide-out shelf allows the toaster oven to be pulled out to allow heat dispersion. It is best to have two people for this. (One person needs some knowledge of assembly) The cabinet wobbles a little. There is a gap between the doors and we are going to have to add washers to get them away from the sides because they rub the edges. We don't see an adjustment. With all of that said, I would buy it again. It fits my needs perfectly.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color matched the picture.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The finish is delicate compared to other items I have purchased in the past, however it is beautiful.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was very accurate.
Like most products of this type, it is what it is. It's nice looking when assembled. Speaking of assembly, it's not that easy. Like most pieces of this type the instructions for assembly are only pictures and you have to be able to figure out what goes where with a minimum of direction. Not good for those who are not mechanically inclined. Other than that, it looks nice and it serves the purpose for which it was purchased well.

It was one of the hardest carts to put together. There were no instructions just pictures and it took 3 of us to put it together and it still is not even, the doors do not close all the way. If I had not started putting it together and knew this was going to be difficult, I would have sent it back.
I really like my microwave cart. It is the second one I've had. I moved once, and couldn't take the first one with me. NOW! Having said that! Unlike the other one (which was exactly the same except the shelf didn't pull out), this one was PURE HELL putting together. There are no written instructions, and damn poor illustrations!
Poor quality. A nightmare to assemble. I have assembled many cabinets in the past without a problem. This one kept falling apart when I was trying to assemble it .Each time it fell apart, pieces broke off of it. It is now sitting in front of my house waiting for the garbage men to pick it up. What a waste of money.
This is definitely not worth the money I paid. Not only is it poor quality workmanship, but the assembly instructions and ease of assembly were a nightmare. Upon opening the crate I thought I had received a quality product, boy was I wrong. I have purchased quite a bit from Overstock and can honestly say that this is the first I've been burned. . .so take my advise and save your money on this cheap, poorly crafted item.
If you think that assembly instructions translated from Chinese are bad, you will LOVE these. There are NO written instructions, only some poorly drawn pictures that are almost impossible to follow. Once you figure them out, the assembly is not hard because the overall production design allows for good fit of the parts. If you have a lot of patience and like puzzles, then this one is for you.
