Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RB1113 Happy with purchase
I waited a while to purchase this item. It was a little pricey at regular price so I waited for a sale, it was well worth the wait. It is very well made and sturdy, has plenty of room for all of our household files. Our large printer/copier/fax machine fits right on top. It was well packed, no damage, and was in one whole piece when arrived, all I had to do was remove the packaging.

It comes assembled and is well packaged. It is sturdy and made from beautiful wood. It is truly an attractive piece and would like to get more from the collection.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cleanvac Good looks, fair workmanship
We were happy when this came in for our home office, it came already assembled and looked good when we took it out of the box.
When we open the drawer however, the backs of the drawers were not completely touching at the top and the back piece of wood was bowed outward. Rather than send it back and have to wait to have another sent we used glue and screws to repair it and straighten out the backs of the drawers.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by autumn8000 Did not look like the images- veneer finish not wood
The images on the internet made this appear to be a medium color finish of real wood. What I received is a dark fake wood veneer over what I assume to be plywood. The adhesive finish is so dark that is not far in color from the black metal frame. It did not match the other pieces I have, which was the basis for my purchase.
On a side note, although it was packaged very well in most areas the legs are exposed. It is a sizable package and one leg was damaged which made it wobbly.
I understand there can be some variation in what is shown on the internet and the actual product but this extreme. Buyer beware.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Stella A little disappointed
Love the look of this filing cabinet,but the drawers are very hard to open. Came assembled which is a plus.

No real assembly required, only have to put the slots in for the hanging files. Those seem to keep falling but hopefully once they are weighted down by the files will stay where they're supposed to. The piece looks really nice. I'm very happy with the way it looks. It came slightly damaged. 2 out of the 4 plastic pieces on the legs (that help so your floors to get scratched) were damaged but I was easily able to replace those.

I love this file cabinet. There is a strong smell from the stain/varnish at first, but this wears off. The thing came fully assembled so I didn't have to put it together at all. Also, it could not have been packed better.
The only problem is that I wanted to use the bottom shelf as a legal, and I cannot remove the metal bar inside the drawer once it's been installed. Not such a huge deal because I can always cut it.

This file cabinet was just what I needed for the rustic type room where it is. My recommendation to a friend is 'yes' with some qualifications. The first one shipped had a large gouge on the top, a split in the wood on one side and a pushed-in leg cap which made it unstable. I called Customer Service about these problems and after just a few questions on the details, they agreed to send a duplicate file free of charge--no problem. The representative was pleasant, professional, extremely easy to work with, and I was impressed by her desire to please. The second file cabinet arrived quickly and, strangely enough, had the same problem with the pushed-in leg cap. But with just a little improvisation, we managed to repair it. This makes me think this problem might arise from shipping despite the good styrofoam packing--as if the carton had been dropped on that corner. A big plus is that this item comes pre-assembled, so that saved time and frustration. The slight negative is that the side bars that hold the Pendaflex folders are about 1/4-inch too short and keep falling out of the slots. I'm thinking that possibly some kind of hook can be rigged to hang one end over the back edge of the drawer. Or perhaps I can find some appropriate length metal strapping to replace them. All in all, this cabinet has a great look, comes fully assembled and has a lot of storage space. If you don't mind possibly modifying a couple of idiosyncrasies, I would recommend this product.
