Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Homemaker11 Four drawer file cabinet looks very nice
I like the appearance of this file cabinet. The style is what I was looking for. I was able to successfully assemble the entire unit in about three hours. The outside of the unit appears to be fairly solidly made. I am very disappointed, however, with the construction of the drawers.
The drawer fronts are heavy and well-made, but the sides, bottom and back of every drawer are made of VERY lightweight material. The sides are just screwed into the drawer fronts and backs and with a very small amount of use, they will fall completely apart. If it were not for this, I would rate the file cabinet much higher.

This file cabinet is very solid and sturdy. It made assembly a little challenging, but once assembled, it is a beautiful piece. One surprise was that the files go in sideways instead of facing outward, which is why it can accommodate legal size files, but not something I thought about before purchasing. Hence there is not as much room for files. Also, it is much darker than the wood in the web photo. Online it looked more honey-colored, when it arrived it is more of a light cherry. Overall, I would purchase again as the piece is very lovely and will last a very long time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MDG123 Assembly problems and shallow drawers
I do not recommend this filing cabinet or the matching armoire. Products look nice, BUT we had NUMEROUS problems trying to assemble and use them, including no hole drilled for camlock, camlocks not locking, drawers falling out, gliders falling out including all those little silver balls inside, and chain breaking. Plus the filing drawers are really shallow. I have put a lot of furniture together over the years, but these ones were some of the worst. I am now trying to return products or sell them for less than I paid in order to buy something else. Look nice, but I really wish I hadn't purchased them.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SequiMike Not bad - works OK for me.
Items arrived with a few minor scuffs, but they will be easy to fix. Assembly took about 2 hours, working by myself. One reviewer commented about all the foam packing debris - I suggest you assemble this thing in the garage and vacuum it well before moving it into your house. It went together easily, although you have to maintain a light touch on the screwdriver to avoid stripping out the holes. The drawers close a little stiff, but that should improve with time. Overall, it looks nice, works well (although the drawers ARE a little shallow), and should last a long, long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Littleoldlady Good solid piece
This is a nice piece of furniture, especially for the price. All parts arrived in perfect condition and in the correct number. The instruction book had a couple of small errors that complicated assembly, most notably instructing that the frame of the cabinet be finished before inserting the bottom--some parts had to be disconnected before the bottom would fit. A couple of the holes for the cam locks were a bit shallow, which made the cam locks difficult to close. Once these obstacles have been conquered, however, the end product is solid, tight, and quite attractive.

WELL PACKAGED. No damage. All parts labeled. Clear instructions but one needs to take ones time. Easy to put together if you've done some of this kind of furniture before. Color was as shown. A number of the screws for the bottom of the drawers would not grip. One "cam bolt" needed to be quite loose in order for the cam nut to grip. Dowel pegs fit too loosely. Drawers move smoothly and close completely. It's heavy! Very attractive and well finished . Veneer over particle board and that's why I believe it's a little over priced

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LT37 Hanging files are sideways
I purchased this because I have another matching piece and needed more file space. This is good quality as well, but the design is set up so that I can not hang files so they are facing forward. It is about 1/2" short in width so all files are facing left or right instead of forward. This greatly reduces the usefulness of this product for me. When I pull open the drawer to reach a file, I have to move around to the left of the drawer to be able to find the file I need.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MoGrace2u Very nice cabinet - 2 drawer
Step 3 of the instructions could have been explained a bit better since you must attach the 2 side units to the back and bottom in tangent with each other. The 2nd time I tried it worked much better however - as did putting together the 2nd drawer. Unfortunately I did not lock 2 of the cam bolts properly when installing the top, and after placing the drawers in the unit, I am not able to reach them. The top of the unit seems loose so carrying the unit by its top does not seem advisable. If I could remove the top drawer I could perhaps fix it - but there is no info on how to do that. All in all it took me 1 hr 45 mins to put it together_ not too bad for an old broad! I had one damaged piece and they were quick to replace it. And yes, I would recommend this product.
