As other reviews have mentioned, the drawer does not pull out unless the doors are all the way open. However, rather than being displeased I think that is just the nature of this piece. I don't know how one could design the doors otherwise or why it's important that the drawer opens with the doors only partially open. Also, if you push the doors too hard, they will go farther than the stoppers. Still, for the price and the fantastic appearance--it's a good buy. I chose this one over the altar table in rosewood (also available on Overstock) because the lines were more modern and it was a little less expensive. If you don't mind a little more traditional look, I would recommend the altar table because it's rosewood--and nothing beats rosewood. This was a good buy, but that one is probably better. For someone with more contemporary furniture preferences and an eye for a deal, this is a good piece. I use it as an entry table because I have a window near the entrance that is pretty low and needed a small cabinet that wouldn't block the window. If you have larger ambitions, be sure to check out the measurements. The size was perfect for me, but I knew I needed a small, low cabinet. Alternatively, I think it would make a great nightstand.
