Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JFerr I LOVE these cabinets!!!!
The people who didn't like this cabinet are crazy! I've had them in my garage for about 3 years now and I absolutely LOVE them! Of course, I didn't install them myself. I had a carpenter do it, which might make all the difference. I keep large, very heavy serving dishes in them...one cabinet has probably about 200 pounds of glassware in it and it's held up better than my cabinets in the house! I love them and am very sad they have been discontinued because we only did one side of the garage and wanted to do the other side at some point later in the future. : (

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AtlantaMike1 Decent - but be careful
I purchased this for my garage and found a few frustrations along the way:
* individual pieces were not identified with labels
* not all parts were included - check before putting together
* be VERY careful when installing the fixed shelf, the plastic dowels will not resist and you can easily break through the other side of the cabinet.
* the backing on this shelf is not particle board like the rest of the shelf, it's a thin cardboard sheet like on a stereo cabinet.
I was impressed at the store, but less impressed when I put it together and found the above mentioned problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kim07 Nice addition
I bought a total of 6 maximum load storage cabinets (2 of these) along with the slot wall organzier. The garage looks great. I had no problems putting these together that others had suggested. I did do it all manually thinking that others might have used an electrical screw driver which could cause a problem. They went together easily and the instructions were fine. My only problem I could not get the top right doors on since I am little (5'7") short and do not do well using my left hand. My husband finished that job and the doors all work great.

My garage was transformed by the ClosetMaid Maximum Load storage units I purchased!! I did some pre-planning and had a specific purpose for each piece. I purchased one tall 4-Door Storage Unit for sporting goods, two 2-Door Wall Cabinets (one each for gardening and business supplies) and two 4-Drawer Base Cabinets (one each for home improvement and pet/misc supplies) and labeled them accordingly. I added a peg board for small hangable tools and ClosetMaid wire shelving for gas cans and larger tools. I put them together myself and, although they were a bit heavy (I'm a 5'0" tall female), they went together without any problems. I'm incredibly pleased with both the look (a 'girl' thing) and function (just a 'smart' thing) of my Maximum Load storage units and highly recommend these products from Home Depot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Do NOT buy -- cheap panels break apart
The panels are very heavy -- giving the impression of being solid -- but its just the coating that does this. So you get heavy panels without a lot of strength. A very bad combo! I put it all together and then went to stand it up and it basically exploded. The screws ripped out through the panels. I would recommend either getting metal shelving our go without Closetmaid's scratch resistant coating -- it's just too much weight for the product to bear.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TMoose Good to Great
I bought 5 units of various types last year for my garage and was well satisfied. Now, I'm buying more for my workshop. Are they foolproof? No, they just take a little normal care when assembling them. Are they made of stainless steel and resistant to all abuse? No, I have made a mark or three myself. But, with reasonable care they look great and are the best storage units I have seen for the money. I don't know what I would do without them.

I purchased an entire set of cabinets, countertop, and wall tracking for my garage. This is the only cabinet of the set that has not held up. All the interior shelves held by the tiny inserts have given out and the cabinet is no longer useful. Too bad, since it looks nice and for the price should have lasted longer than a few months. Would be better if all the shelves were secured like the top one.

The cabinet literally fell apart while trying to assemble it. The pins for the fixed shelf went through the walls of the cabinet. I thought when the first pin went through the wall , Shame on me, I need to be more careful, then when the second and third pin went through the wall. Shame on me for buying this cabinet. The back panel is cardboard material. I strongly do not recommend this product.
