The cabinet arrived severely damaged and appeared to have suffered from rough handling during shipment. However, veneer on the cabinet is super thin but finished very well. Beyond the finish, there not much to cheer about. Except for the removable shelf and the veneer, the entire cabinet is made entirely of low quality particle board that easily separates when stressed and is not strong enough to support the casters. Two of the six casters just simply ripped away from the base of an empty cabinet rolled across low cut pile carpet. All three drawers were completely detached from their left side drawers glides. Thus putting a lot of stress on the attached right drawer glides. A chunk of particle board fell out from the inside panel where the right side drawer glides are attached. I destroyed the box the cabinet was shipped in before I fully realized the extinct of the damaged, So I went to Lowe's and bought materials to fortify the cabinet, i.e., epoxy glue, metal braces, oak panels, and wood screws. It looks good but manufactured from cheap low grade materials.
I actually use this as a bedside table because I need the combination of drawers, shelves, and large top surface to accommodate all my stuff . The shelves hold my purse, a printer, a laptop, as well as some books, magazines and newspapers, while the 3 roomy drawers hold everything a regular nightable would hold, and are accessible all the way to the back due to the high quality side sliding hardware. While I was waiting for the replacement sliding door to arrive I found it very convenient to use without the door, and haven't put it on yet. I personally wish it came in additional colors, and may end up painting it darker to match the rest of my furniture.
