Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie1 Great addition to closet organizer
Absolutely love these drawers as an addition to the closet maid elite organizer. I really didn't want all wire bins or cloth baskets, so these were a great find. They look great, are well built and are very roomy. Sturdy construction and easy to put together. Overall a great value at a great price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by gatorback Pricey and material are delicate / scratch easy
Purchased 3 units and found that they scratch easily and are pricey considering they are laminated particle board. Expect inexpensive hotel furniture. Instructions are well written and parts are properly identified. Be prepared to spend time to assemble.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kathyrbl Good product -- relatively easy assembly for a divorced mom
This product is easy to assemble and the pictures and directions are clear. I have a few tips for anyone who wants to install them as a bureau (with no space between them) within a closet as I did.
(1) The vertical standards have to be hung perfectly for the drawers to hook onto them. Measure carefully and then leave your screws slightly loose on the vertical to have a little wiggle room. Hook on a drawer below and above the screw for perfect alignment before fully tightening.
(2) The drawers will not fit over the screw in the vertical standard without some modification as they are not flat enough. If want to use all of the vertical you need to make a few tweaks. Buy the toggle bolts (Model # 2877) as the screws have flatter heads than the plastic anchors. Figure out where the screw will fall on the drawer box before hammering the back on. Trim away the edge of the back so you have a half inch above and below where the screw will fall to allow room around where the screw would otherwise get in the way (I used tin snips) and then hammer the back on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jsten Very Nice System
Closetmaid has designed a system that provides sturdy functionality and very nice styling. I opted for the 16" depth wire rack and the Cherry drawers and trim. The entire system and all extra components require assembly, but if you are reasonably handy, it all goes together just as the pictures suggest. It looks great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toptheo Not bad
Some of directions to put together where not as clear as they should be and it took more time to put it together. parts are marked withstick on labels which you must take off to assemble, once you do that they start to look alike and you spend more time figureing it out than you should. Once you get passed that its not bad at all and appears to work the way you want it too.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jtr Looks nice but quality control suffers
Once assembled the product does look nice. I purchased three of these and had the following results:
1) First drawer went together as expected. No issues. However, one of the dozen odd nails was completely rusted. How does that happen in a sealed package?
2) Second drawer had one slide that would not match to the pre-drilled holes. I tried several ways including switching slides from left to right. Nothing worked and I ended up drilling new holes for the one oddball slide. Both slides came in the same sealed package and were stamped SH-ABC but did not match.
3) Third drawer had problems with both slides. This time they lined up but the holes drilled in the slide for the screws (part #50605) were too big. I thought perhaps they needed the other screws (part #95842) but that would have left the smaller screws for attaching the rail hangers and they were too small. Off to the toolbox for some small washers and assembly continued.
Overall, the value suffers for a $50 item. Luckily I bought one of these at my local store on clearance but purchased the other two online because no other store in my area carried them. I've bought entire kitchens from IKEA and never had a problem with their flat pack kits. Yes, its pressed wood and you have to be careful with assembly but when you consider its just one drawer for the price as opposed to an entire cabinet the price point needs to be set lower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sacramento Sturdy and well made.
We bought seven of these drawers to make a queen size pedestal for our bed. They are easy to assemble and well manufactured. The only down side I saw to them was the cardboard backing on the drawer unit. It's not visable and the units are well built so it's just a very minor issue. Our only other problem was that the drawer faces were the same size as the unit and we ended up have to raise them a little bit to keep the drawers from scratching up the wood floor. Over all, a very good product, pricing was a bit high but not out of reach.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JayF so specific a need...
I'm hoping to turn 8 of these into a platform storage bed. The problem is that you can't find matching wood! Why closet maid wouldn't use a similar shade like the laminate shelving you find in Lowe's or Home Depot I'm not sure. The drawers slide well and they seem to be easy to assemble whether you're using them in a hanging closet fashion or not.
