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 needed a file cabinet to fit into a small space. This "letter" size file cabinet fits the bill. I like the pearl white color and the 3 drawers. It will hold quite a few files and office supplies. For what I paid, I'm happy with my purchase. It's a good file cabinet for a home office. It is sturdy in the sense that it will hold up, but it is not super thick metal for a public office, where you must worry about theft. In a public area, it would be easy to kick in and/or break the lock. I simply need to lock a drawer for privacy, but don't have to worry about robbery, etc.
Only the first 2 drawers lock. I wish the bottom one locked also. The drawers only open 3/4 of the way. I can deal with both features (not a great hardship really) because I didn't want to spend more money to store supplies and papers.
The only parts to assemble are the handles, which was simple. The handles look fantastic, making a cheap file cabinet look expensive. For the money, it's a winner and will not fall apart.
the 2 drawer was exactly what we were looking for. Believe it or not, my husband works for an engineering company, and he is using the file cabinet in the extended cab of his work to keep himself orginized. Seemed kind of silly to me when he forst mentioned it, but at times he can have 7-8 jobs going at one time. The file cabinet fits right behind the drivers seat (we did put "gripper pads" under it to keep it from moving. But he loves it! Saves him a lot of time and makes him look more professional at the same time
Not flimsy but not super thick metal either. Perfect for what I needed it for and good price. I would have given 5 stars, but I have to modify the drawer handles because the screws provided left handles loose even after tightening all the way. Used washers to correct the problem. Looks nice.
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.
Nice file cabinet for home office. This cabinet is large enough to put away a lot of paper and things out of the way that you do not want seen however, the lock will give you problems locking it after a while that is the only draw back you might end up having to replace the lock after 8month or so beware. I use my file cabinet everyday for my home office and I was always careful not to slam the draw hard but i still had to replace the lock which was a shame otherwise a good file cabinet.
Unfortunately, these cabinets are shipped by a freight carrier, and were not packaged very well, so 3 of my 4 cabinets were banged up and dented upon arrival. Overstock offered to make an exchange, but since I had already wrestled them out of the boxes, and since they were still functional, I didn't want to go through the hassle. I don't have any complaint with the product or Overstock, just wish they had been transported better.
All and all a good cabinet for the money. The only problem is the drawers jam a little bit with the type of folders that I use, the very heavy folders with a tab and a divider in the middle. It is not a tip risk as some of the cheaper ones are. I wish the drawers were a bit wider. The wire insert to hold files up when the drawer is not full is a little difficult to get in and out once files are in the drawer. It doesn't slide you have to take the whole wire out which is awkward when the drawer is not empty.
