Product get just under 5 stars, site gets -1. It just ate my review. Grrrr...
We just remodeled our bathroom and this cabinet was perfect. Our budget is very limited, and for the price, you really can't beat this. We actually got two, and they've absorbed all the bottles and meds we could ask. Our counter is clean for the first time and has been that way for a whole month now!
It makes the smallish bath look twice as large and reflects our tub-wall mural beautifully (see pics.)
It's heavy...I mean, get real. 36" of mirror isn't going to be light, so prepare something (we used a stack of 2x4s) to set it on while you drill and mount. OTOH, we're two old ladies (60 and 70) with very particular notions about alignment and we managed quite handily.
the shelves are 1/2" composite and 36" wide. Again, get real, they're going to bend without more support. A deftly applied drill about midway and a small diameter metal dowel all the way through the wall behind will support it very nicely. We have ours loaded down...tho we do tend to put lightweight items toward the center, and it's doing fine.
I included a few pics of it in situ. Just don't look at the counter edge. We haven't put it on yet...The paint's still drying! :D

I had just purchased and installed Glacier Bay Bi Fold mirror model 4453 (28878700) and expected similar quality. I was disappointed. Particleboard was cheap. There was no additional mirror inside of cabinet or on back of doors. Only three shelves and they were also made from cheap particleboard. made from cheap particleboard,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pbpb not durable
These are really good looking cabinets but after a month the mirror started graying or de-silvering in the bottom edge and where we touched to open it, the sawdust board started to bubble up. And we have the highest power bathroom fan we could get. This happened in a bathroom we don't even use at all (the desilvering). It would have been impossible to avoid it getting totally ruined, especially if guests use it. The inside is all that sawdust board and it isn't a good material for a bathroom, in particular for this one because the boards are not sealed at the very edge so it is easy for moisture to absorb. In addition to this, the mounting requires you to just randomly drill long wood screws through it to mount it....not very easy.

This is well made and looks terrific. I did determine just where I wanted the shelves and put an extra shelf support in the middle of the top 2 shelves to prevent bowing. May not have been necessary, but is more secure

This looks good out of the box, but that is as far as it goes. As soon as the installers left I opened the cabinet to put my stuff in. First thing I noticed was that the doors are warped so they don't touch on top and bottom. (Cabinet is level on the wall, so it isn't anything the installers did). Upon opening it I could see that the shelves, like the main cabinet material, are made from pressed board, and so thin that they began sagging as soon as I put even the smallest items on them. I had to put supports under the shelves to keep them from sagging! And the pegs that were included for the shelves to rest on are tiny plastic nubs! As soon as my new Kohler cabinet arrives from Amazon this week, I am removing this piece of junk from my wall and returning it to Home Depot. It is so sad this type of junk is made and sold. What a waste! P.S. My Kohler is made of metal and has glass shelves and cost only $100.00 more but will be around long after I am gone!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnnF Good looking, good price
This is just as good looking as some of the far more expensive designer ones. The beveled glass adds a distinctive touch and the hardware is smooth.
I admit I had a bit of trouble installing it, but I honestly think that was because I overestimated my skills a bit. It definitely took two people to hoist it up--it's a bit of an awkward shape for one person to do, or at least for a rather short person to do. ;-)
The wood isn't waterproof, so just in case, you might want to line the shelf you put shampoo or other liquids on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarterLake Elegant and easy to install
My husband and I installed this in 45 min. It makes the bathroom look so much better, plus all that was on the counter is now in the medicine cabinet. Remove the doors from the hinges before you install, it makes it so much lighter to hold up.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 4mspeppers Particle board is weak
Had the unit installed by our bathroom contractor. First one the mirror was discolored, the second one the hinge pulled out of the mirror door in less than 36 hours of installation. The material is not solid wood it is particle board.
