I assembled this file cabinet at a leisurely pace--over a 2-3 week period. Found 1 definite part omission; another possible parts omission. Both were remedied by the manufacturer promptly. The assembly drawings are sometimes difficult to read but when one calls customer service (but not on the weekends), you get prompt and knowledgeable assistance. The quality of the cabinet seems good. My last task (there are 17 steps to assembly!) is to balance the cabinet drawers. It will take two people to move the cabinet (it's heavy) so I have to wait to find out how it looks all assembled. Overall satisfied.
I am very happy with this file cabinet. It looks great in my dining/living room/office. It was easy to attach the handles. Due to its heavy weight, laying it down to put on the feet and standing it up was a bit of a challenge. However, I accomplished it by myself using good leverage. I am petite and do work out in the gym. I recommend having a second person help with it though. I would have preferred that letter-size hanging folders could fit the full length, rather than having two short rows. I will get some legal-size hanging folders for the leftover space and put letter-size paper in them. You can open only one drawer a time, which is good for safety. The top drawer has some resistance when opening and closing that seems excessive. The feet are adjustable so you could level it on and uneven floor. I had been looking for a long time for a good-looking and functional white two drawer lateral file and this was the best one available. It was on sale and with a 12% coupon and I got a great price.
