Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Perfect Workbench at a great price and easy to assemble!!!
This is a great buy. Quality, price, looks, size, ease of assembly are all factors here. My fishing buddy actually enjoyed helping me put it together. I put it all together but the drawers the day before. The drawer bearing assemblies are in reverse (as a flier indicates). The bench is held together by gravity save the drawer handles and pegboard. There are very few nuts and bolts here!!! My Mom loves the looks of it. Freight was free and taxes were like 6 bucks. Best $106 ever spent!!! Just order it and put it together. Enjoy the photo !!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scrawnymagician Great value, good quality.
For the price, this was great. I spent some time sanding and putting multiple coats of water-based polyurethane sealer the bench surface itself since it's just low quality MDF (I coated the edges with wood filler/putty, as well). I also added a dimmable LED light strip to the top there. This makes it nearly a perfect bench. Very sturdy.
As others have mentioned, pick up a mallet while you're at it - pretty sure that's the only way to really snap everything together. Also the slide-out drawer could really use some reinforcement. I'll look into that if it bothers me too much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Juan Should be carried in stores!
Great quality for under $100. Looking at comparable models from Lowes and harbor freight this was definitely the best by far. Assemble took about 30 minutes and it helped to have a rubber mallet and a couple self tapping screws. rubber mallet to bang everything tight and self tappers to lower the peg board and fasten it to the back of the work bench. If your looking for storage compartments for it let me tell you what you need. first off all 3 drawer sterlite containers run 24"-25" in height and you can only have something up to 22.5". I purchased single drawers by sterlite and they fit perfect and kept all my detailing towels organized.... only drawback on my storage containers were their price.. $70!! almost as much as the workbench cost. but I can't complain much because I love my new garage set up!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ProjectNancy Workbench Turned to Outdoor Kitchen Prep Table
We chose this sturdy workbench to convert to an outdoor kitchen prep table for a family member whose kitchen was soon to undergo renovation. To make surfaces waterproof, we replaced all particle board with 3/4 inch exterior plywood (from Home Depot), and recycled rustic pallet slats for the back. All wood pieces were stained and sealed with urethane, a standard outdoor 3/4 inch faucet was installed to accept a 3/4 inch water hose (for supply), a galvanized bucket was plumbed with a drain and an adapter which also accepts a 3/4 water hose (for drain) (all from from Home Depot). Various galvanized pieces were added for fun and function, and the generous space on counter will allow placement of a microwave and other appliances. Large plastic containers will store kitchen supplies underneath, and the large easy-slide drawer will hold cooking/cleaning accessories. A great item turned into an even better use, hopefully making a kitchen renovation a little more tolerable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RMBraught Excellent Benches For Electronics and Small Work
Combine two of these w/some plywood and you get an excellent electronics/small appliance work area (two work areas, or two technicians.) For less than 100 bucks each, w/free shipping, I couldn't be happier. Please note that if you do what I do (flip the top "shelf" <more like 'bucket'> components, to allow you to screw a plank across the top) you'll want to secure the front cross bars (I use rivets.) Installed a pair that look just like these and beat the death out of them for almost 15 years (had to leave them behind when I moved.) Get some floor runner and cut it to protect the particle board. *Secret* if you span the benches by 17" back to back, you can bolt 19" rack stuff up in between. Sorry for the mess, just getting set up! Wish Home Depot was close to me today like it was in the Midwest. Thank You!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RA2A GREAT!!! (for the money)
This is a great value. The steel parts are not flimsy, high-gauge sheet metal. They're heavy, thick sheets that've been bent into strong structural members. Also, assembly was a breeze as almost all of the pieces did not require fasteners. You just slide the parts together and tap them in place with a rubber mallet (not included). Couple the finished product with Durahook brand hanging accessories, also sold at homedepot.com, and you get a great work area.
HOWEVER, there was a small issue that had big consequences. The instructions were straightforward but the labels on the parts (indicated with small stickers) were reveresed on two parts. Unfortunately, those two parts were assembled in the first step, which meant I had to disassemble most of the framework to swap two pieces. Not a huge deal since there were no fasteners involved to that point, but frustrating nonetheless.
Overall, definitely worth the money. You get a lot of workbench for your dollar.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FaireMaiden Fabulous but with some caveats
I'm so glad I got this for my husband, (along with a Husky rolling tool cabinet and chest). His tools were all over the place... a real mess. He couldn't find anything! With this workbench, (along with the other tool-storage pieces), he's got himself pretty WELL-ORGANIZED now.
The workbench seems like it should be fairly straight-forward in putting together. Alas, right out of the box, there was an additional piece of paper saying that the original 'DRAWER DIRECTIONS' needed amendment, (this piece of paper saying what you needed to do).
As well, there was a great deal of confusion when attaching the two upright 'BACK BRACES', (that hold the top piece in place). And, there were SCRAP pieces of wood that actually had a tag on them that said, 'scrap', *lol*. Geez.
Other than that, we're very happy with this piece. Once put together, it is STURDY as can be with plenty of room on the top for stuff, (baskets are good for this), and on the bottom for the larger, heavier power tools and things of that nature. The workbench is big enough, and strong enough, to feel MORE THAN CONFIDENT when working on projects. There is NO sense of 'flimsiness' at all.
We also purchased a bunch of 'PEGBOARD STUFF' at Home Depot to hold the tools on the pegboard. You'd think they'd supply a half-dozen pegs just to get you started, but alas, they don't. So we had to go back to the store to get them. To me, there's nothing more aggravating than putting a piece together only to find you can't really use it until you buy more stuff for it.
On that note, we got:
2-ea Everbilt 5 in. Peggable Power Tool Holder
1-ea Everbilt Wall-Mounted or Peggable Multipurpose Tool Holder
1-set Everbilt Peggable Wire Baskets (3-Pack)
2-sets of Pegboard Magnets, (I couldn't find them here online, but they're in the stores)
Now that it's up-and-running, I will add that we're about to go back to Home Depot and get some kind of 'UNDER-CABINET LIGHTING' for it. I suggest that anyone buying this workbench do the same. It'll make all the difference in the world.
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so, have a look at mine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by XBHORNET For the price and my tasks, definitely a good purchase
The individual pieces look flimsy, but once assembled, the workbench in its entirety is actually very sturdy. It's sturdy enough for my purposes, i.e. modeling kits, tinkering with electronics, repairing kids' toys. Find another product if you plan to hammer, saw or do heavy duty work on this piece. There was one leg that didn't fit snugly, but as long as I don't move the bench (which I don't plan to do) I'm content. For the price, you can't go wrong. If your pieces fit snugly, you'll definitely be satisfied with this product. I'm not sure what other reviewers meant when they said it takes hours to assemble. It took me about 30 minutes and if it wasn't for that one stubborn leg, I probably would have assembled this in 20-25 minutes.
