Basic black metal file cabinet is exactly what I needed for my home office. Arrived undamaged; efficiently packaged. No instructions included but the only assembly required was to attach the (simple and elegant) drawer handles. The lock is adequate, not heavy duty. I did have to add my own felt pads to the bottom so that it would not scratch the floor. Overall excellent value for the price.

I would return this filing cabinet if it were not such a hastle to box it up and return it. There is almost nothing that can be done to prevent it from tipping over, even if the bottom drawer is completely full. It is unstable and the drawers are not quite big enough for the heavy file folders that I use. I can't believe that anyone would find the product satisfactory. It is so much a tipping danger that I finally just put it in my laundry room instead of using it for files. If I open even one drawer it will tip.
My sister in law , had described the file cabinet she wanted ,so I decided to buy it for her birthday, She was extremely pleased , and could not get over the quality of the handles, I on the other hand expected it to be a lil taller and deeper,. but it was exactly what she wanted and that's what it was all about. ,, quality and price was very good . I loved the free shipping and the fact that you could track it.
The only thing holding me back from five stars is the lack of access to the back of the drawers. There is a five-inch space between where the drawer stops and the back of the drawer. The only reason this is liveable for me is because it's a three-drawer cabinet instead of two, so I don't need to pack my files too tight in there, hence not being able to access the back files at all. With the extra space, I am able to slide the back files significantly forward in order to access them. While I realize that the manufacturer is trying to prevent the cabinet from tipping and an injury lawsuit, five inches is way too much. Otherwise, this is a great value, arrived fast and in perfect condition, the handles were easy to install, and it is the perfect height for my printer to sit on top of. Three-drawer cabinets are hard to find and I wanted one whose drawers do not latch. There is only one drawer with a lock but I just made a point to put all of my financial files in that one if I ever do need to lock it. Highly recommend.
The little glitch is that it took almost 2 weeks to get the keys to the lock. Overstock wanted me to send it back - no way!! Too heavy!! Eventually they found keys to send me. Quality is ok but could be stronger. If not stronger it should be less expensive. I could have gotten 2 two drawer cabinets from Wally World for less. It needed it to take less space, which this does.
If you are looking for a very heavy duty file cabinet or something fireproof, this is not it. But the black makes the file cabinet a little more sleek and it does it's job. The drawers/handles and product over all are just what we were looking for.
