It would depend what you are considering using this product for as to whether or not you'll like it. I needed extra storing space in my Florida kitchen, which are notorious for having so little storage space. Putting it together was easy, except when putting on the doors. I realized, finally, that the screw on the part of the hinge attached to the unit was to go into the larger part of the other part of the hinge first, then it all attached fairly easily. Not realizing I installed two of the shelves upside down until I thought I was done, frustrated me, which meant I had to unscrew them from the sides and reset them properly. That I did as I mumbled to myself forgetfulness. The entire piece if particle board that is covered with a black color, except for the inside. The shelves are a bright, light brown. It does hold plenty of different things, from extra boxes of cereal to new pots and pans I wanted away from the other stack under my counter. Mostly, I'd recommend it for the storage of boxes like cereal, instant potatoes, and that sort of stuff. The color is a bit to dark which makes me want to change the color somehow. Maybe i'll find a way. It took me about an hour and a half to put it together.
This was purchased for a kitchen pantry. Product is good quality and easily assembled. Definitely worth purchasing for the price. Very satisfied with my purchase.

Deep shelves provide lots of storage in this easy-to-put-together unit. Even though it is packaged pretty well, my unit arrived with a corner of one of the side panels chipped off. I had to request a replacement panel, which Overstock was great to provide. This unit is made from laminate-covered particle board - so you are not getting a prime piece of furniture. But, it will serve it's purpose well for providing much-needed extra storage!
We really needed a pantry in our kitchen. This thing to its credit, does the job. We have a lot of heavy stuff in it, lots of canned heavy stuff. We would love it if it weren't for 2 things. 1 - the item shipped incorrectly to someone else and not to us. That is the issue of the shipping service but then when it did arrive, it wasn't protected appropriately. It looked as if someone ripped it out of a factory shelf and slapped a tag on it and shipped it. Because of that, all the corners were damaged significantly. We worked around that because we needed it so bad and it didn't impact the functionality of it as much as it did the look. Also - a word of caution, the door doesn't stay closed. We ended up purchasing a magnet closure at Lowes to keep the door closed, but it could be that some of the panels were warped due to the damage in shipping. I have a request to customer service to see if they will credit us somehow for the damage to the product, but replacing large furniture is not easy through overstock so we are prepared to just deal with it as is. Still very disappointed, it would be a nice product otherwise.
Using the cabinet as a kitchen pantry, but can also use this as a storage for media and movies. My only complaint is that there is no catch to keep the door closed. should have a a magnetic catch with it.

This was the 6th akadahome storage unit I have bought. I love their products. They are easy to put together. Holes line up and parts are all included. This is not a super high end heavy wood product but they are good quality and look nice. Considering the low price and ease to put together, I couldnt be any happier.
