Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by theorganizer315 Perfect for storage with style!
I was looking for a stylish way to store papers and this is perfect! I was hesitant to purchase it based on other reviews that complained about the assembly, but I had no problem at all. It took about an hour to assemble. At one point it looked like there were two possible "holes" to use to attach the drawer slides, but on closer inspection, it was clear that one set had been filled in and so I used the other holes. Perhaps this was what was causing trouble for others in the past and it has since been resolved. I'm very happy with this purchase. It looks great, and the drawers close nicely.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by swiggy Excellent quality
I ordered the 9-drawer cabinet in black to match my espresso office furniture. It is gorgeous. The quality is unbeatable - it's solid hardwood. The assembly was simple, but there is a lot to put together. The drawers assemble within about 10 to 15 minutes, each. The cabinet was a little more complicated. It took two of us about two hours to assemble the entire piece. I changed out the drawer pull hardware because I wanted to match the hardware on my desk and cabinetry. It was simple to switch out. This file cabinet is solid, gorgeous, and very high quality. It doesn't look like typical office furniture. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Very poor quality that belies the look. I am not sure how long this piece wil last under even light use. Materials were if poor quality and alterations were needed just to put this piece together because they were not done at the factory.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jasminec It's real furniture!
Like a friend of mine said, your filing cabinet looks like real furniture -- not some ugly metal thing you see everywhere else. It really is a great addition to my home office -- beautiful, solid, & spacious -- and exactly what I was looking for.
The downside was the difficulty in putting it together. Plan on an entire afternoon. The previous reviews were very helpful: yes, do buy better looking drawer pulls, and it will make a big difference. Although the white finish marks up easily, the marks come off immediately with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser from any grocery story.
Overall, I'm delighted.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DMSwhat Went fine, with one hitch
I got the 3-drawer console and put it together in 3 hours single-handed without power screwdriver, so not too bad. One big hitch was that the drawer sides (I and I1) were mislabeled, If you attach them to the drawer front according to the diagram, when it comes time to attach the inner slides, none of the pre-drilled holes will line up. Unfortunately, I did all three drawers before I found this out. Save yourself a headache and just attach the sides to the drawer front and then hold the inner rails up to see if the holes line up before proceeding. Happy with the product overall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Timthetoolmantaylor Decent credenza for the price
Very pretty color, good size, goes well with the Oxford desk, which we also purchased. With my two sons helping me, it took 1.5 hours to put together. The directions are a bit vague and the illustrations should provide more details because it was hard to tell which side was right side up with some of the parts and we had to take it apart to get the drawer slides straight. The storage space is good and the height is perfect for placing the credenza behind a couch. For put-it-together-yourself furniture, it's pretty sturdy and heavy. Overall, we are pleased with this purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TatiT Happy I bought it!
My husband and I put this together yesterday in about 2.5 hours. The directions were relatively easy to follow and it helped that all of the parts and hardware were labeled. We used a drill to get the screws in and this made the assembly easier on the hands and quicker! The piece once completely assembled (with drawers in place) is a lot sturdier than one would expect. It looks great in my home office - a very handsome piece. We bought the merlot color and it has a richness to it and looks a lot nicer in my home than my previous metal file cabinet!
I would highly recommend this piece and would highly recommend using a drill when assembling (as long as you don't put too much force into it and run the risk of stripping).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by catlady2 Not Happy!
I purchased the 3 drawer file credenza thinking it would be the PERFECT storage for my research. As it turns out there are 2 support bars that run under the file drawers that do not show in the picture. I had intended to use the bottom shelf to store binders but these support bars protrude into the bottom storage shelf reducing the height by several inches. You cannot stand binders on this shelf even though it appears so in the picture. VERY disappointing. The piece was moderately difficult to assemble because nothing seemed to fit together perfectly. Even after completed there are gaps in some areas that bother me. The color is VERY red-orange. Again, not what the picture portrays. Overall not happy with this merchandise.
