Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KJPhilly Good purchase for the money
This is actually a good quality line of modular units for the price. It is very functional and fits in the closet space well. The actual closet is 7 ft X 5 ft and we purchased four modular units for this closet, (two stacked side by side--two drawer units, one shoe storage unit and one cubby unit) and this allows for ample space for clothes to hang on each side. The directions were easy to follow and it is quite sturdy when put together. When stacking, securing the units with the enclosed bracket (s) and using the anti-tipping kit is the best option. A great alternative over the more expensive closet modular units.

This was the only affordable free-standing closet system available, and I did a LOT of online searching. I purchased this to use against a bedroom wall, since my closet does not provide enough storage space and my bedroom is large, so I needed something that would be attractive on its own as a piece of furniture, and it does meet that requirement, especially since it has moulding details.
It is true that it is mostly particleboard/mdf, but it's much more attractive than metal, and at this price I wouldn't expect real wood. Plus If it had been made of wood it would be much too heavy to maneuver into place. I purchased two of these drawer units and two of the shelf units as well as two hanging shelf bar sets, and I was able to assemble everything myself. It was a challenge to set up the top hanging bar unit so it was level, but if I had a partner it would have been easier.
It is reasonably quick to assemble with a power screwdriver as long as you review the instructions first, and I recommend a power drill as well since some most of the parts are made of particleboard and if you make a mistake and need to reverse your steps you may inadvertently destroy the original hole(s). This would allow you to find a new spot to drill new holes to connect the different parts. I also applied wood glue in the dowel holes to add stability. I do recommend that extra attention be paid when assembling the drawers: be sure that all connectors on the sides of the drawers are screwed flush (especially when attaching the runners to the drawers) so that the drawers do not stick when opening and closing. This is another case when a power drill is handy to make existing holes a tiny bit deeper or larger if you struggle getting your screws flush. Just don't overdrill!
As others mentioned, the shelf units were not as deep as the drawer units, so they did not completely line up, but that gives the customer freedom to choose whether they want to recess the top units back a little bit. Also, the customer can choose the heights for the hanging bars - this can be an advantage, for example, if you want to mount one bar higher to allow more space for dresses. Since I am a bit short, I chose to mount both bars a little bit lower than standard so I would be able to reach the top bar without any trouble.
One possible negative - a matter of personal preference, really - is that the front of the drawers are not full height so the contents of the drawers can be seen when the drawers are closed. This is clearly shown in the picture and may be intentional, since this is intended as a closet system, after all. But in my case this will not be in a closet, so I would prefer that my underwear not be on full view. However, I hope to come up with a creative solution that will allow me to add some false fronts, perhaps covered with wallpaper in a color that compliments the bedroom's theme, to make everything cohesive.
I have been using the system for four or five months now for my primary clothing storage and it is still stable and strong, with no loose parts. I have to reason to think it won't remain that way for years.

I am starting to build my dressing room and this is the first piece I purchased and I couldn't be happier! Better than pictured and taller than I thought it would be (I know the measurements are on there, but I was more concerned with the width) I will be back for more!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by askew137 Great looking unit
Product was delivered quickly and packaged well, no missing parts or damage and all labeled clearly. Took about 1.5-2 hours to assemble by myself. The diagram was a little unclear to me regarding the railing, but I guessed what they meant correctly. Finished unit looks nice and exactly like the picture. My only complaint is that it didn't line up well next to the matching corner unit I put in the same closet. Maybe I just assembled it poorly. But I moved it to a different side, so you can't tell they're off.

I purchased this piece with the companion shelf unit to redo my closet. They are so nicely designed and very very sturdy. The drawer bottoms will not hold really heavy items however, I only store my lingerie, panties, etc. on them so it isn't an issue for me. Each open drawer holds quite a bit. I was surprised. I was able to fit a lot in each drawer very nicely. And, it looks really nice in my closet. The shelves in the other unit are very sturdy and can hold the heavier items, such as jeans or shoes/purses, whatever your needs are. I am very pleased with these pieces and would definitely purchase them again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AverageJill Just okay
The storage piece has other matching pieces that I can purchase if I decide to redo my closet storage down the road, which is a definite plus. The price was middle of the road compared to the other cubbies and dressers I looked at. I like the open tops of the drawers and knowing what is where. However...
putting this together was a two person and 1-2 hour job. The drawers slip their tracks if you don't open them just right. The drawers cannot handle anything heavy-- I can't store my folded jeans all in one drawer. It actually ripped the track base out and it had to be reattached.
I do like the appearance of the piece and I'm not sorry I purchased it. It's priced a little high for the quality, but not priced so high that I would return it.
