It's tinny. The drawers don't slide in and out well, and they don't pull out far enough so you can get to the files in the back. I wanted to replace an older metal file cabinet, but this one was so poorly constructed that I kept using the old one instead. It's a real piece of junk!

I was looking for a file cabinet that met three criteria: lockable, inexpensive, and not too unsightly. This cabinet did not disappoint me. Aside from appreciating the moderate price, the thing I like best about it is the finish, which is an attractive dark grey (slightly darker than the photo appeared on my monitor) with a subtle metallic glitter that pleasantly reflects the tones and lighting in its vicinity. (I have it in a room surrounded by warm colors and it blends in pretty unobtrusively.) This unusual finish is a VERY refreshing change from the conventional file cabinet colors (seeing it at home won't give you nightmares of the office); however, it is rather delicate. My cat jumped on the cabinet when I took it out of the box and immediately made some fine scratches in the surface, which is not something I have seen happen before. The drawer handles are also more stylish than one would normally associate with a file cabinet (but note that the sides of the handles are a kind of chrome and look a little like plastic).
The cabinet as a whole is somewhat flimsier than I thought it would be, though I have it packed with files and it seems to function quite well. I have no problem opening or closing the drawers and the interior structures seem relatively stable. The entire cabinet sways slightly when a drawer is moved, but perhaps that is because I have stuffed it almost to capacity. The metal is thin, however, and just as the finish can be easily scratched, I suspect it could be easily dented (it requires a little TLC). You can also see a few little bumps where the pieces were soldered together and the seams don't completely meet at the top and bottom corners (though this is clearly an intentional design element and you can actually see in the Overstock photo how minor this is, but it does make the corners a little sharp).
Overall, this seems to be a relatively good product and a bargain for the price, although it is not quite as sturdy as some of the other, similarly priced items I have ordered from Overstock.
How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Somewhat flimsy but functional
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
This is a great filing cabinet if you are looking for something more on the modern side, but affordable. It's probably not quite as sturdy as something you'd pay more for, but it works just fine for me and I have it pretty full. It's locking, which is nice. The bottom drawer locks and when locked it locks both of the drawers. Love it.
Did the product fit true to size? yes
How is the quality of the product? good quality considering the price
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
I own 2 of these file cabinets. I got them at *** each .I would recommend it but when you pull out the drawer you can not reach files behind and that is bad. Plus when one has many files this is an disadvantage. Looks fine to me but function is not very good. Way too OVERPRICED ---DUBBLE!!!!
The cabinet looks exactly as pictured, but the quality leaves much to be desired. The bottom corners had sharp metal edges that scratch the floor, and the metal on the inside is rough and low quality. It's fine for a very basic file cabinet, but not something that I feel is going to last very long.

Can I turn the folders in the drawer to hang an 11" x 17" ?xonnie on Feb 19, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi xonnie, this cabinet is designed for letter size files only. It may be possible to turn the folders to fit, but it may require some altering. Also we do not recommend altering the item in any way as this may void the warranty. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 5, 2014
