Seriously! I'm pretty adept at putting these types of things together and though there are a lot of pieces putting it together is really not horribly difficult. But when I was finished I found out the two drawers did not match up so they both would not fit in the cabinet at the same time. Home Decorators sent me new cover panels for the drawers, but they were drilled differently than the existing drawers. So HD sent me new drawers. I put the first one in and the drawers guiderail busted. Ugh! What a nightmare! Find one that's already put together and save yourself the hassle...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MonkeyTrent Terrible assembly instructions
Well, that is three hours of my life I will never get back. I am fairly handy. I have good spacial thinking. I have good tools. But egad, the instructions were so obtuse and unclear, so superficial, that it was nearly impossible to figure out how to assemble this thing correctly. Several pieces required trial and error before I could figure out the correct orientation and tooling. Each try, of course, degrading the pieces and hardware. How hard would it be to create good instructions, reliable hardware and pieces that fit as they are supposed to? While the actual final piece may be nice, it is simply not worth the headache of putting this thing together. I purchased several items and each was worse than the other in terms of assembly.

The instructions made no sense. The pieces didn't fit together. THREE people couldn't put this together. Not worth your time or money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lex4 poor quality - parts don't fit well
I originally purchased this file cabinet because it looked good and was a reasonable price. When I received the product and put it together it was not right. The directions are not the best. I've put tons of Ikea furniture together and their directions are far better. The slides for the drawers have about 4 positions they could be screwed into. We tried different positions, but the drawers would not close well and were difficult to open. When I called the company they sent a new cabinet to me. The new cabinet also did not fit well. One of the bolts in the bottom of the drawer could not be used because the holes on the two pieces did not line up. The drawers on this cabinet were smoother, but sit about 1/4 inch too far inside the cabinet. Overall both cabinets don't fit right. I wouldn't buy this again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pachyderm Instructions missing
The file cabinet was OK-we already had on in another color. However, the instructions with this one were incomplete(missing 2 pages). Fortunately, I had the old instructions and despite the fact they had changed somewhat was able to complete the assembly successfully. When I turned over the completed cabinet however, there was what appeared to be dirt on the back of the top. Unfortunately this was actually some type of flaw (not a major one)in the finish but was of a dark color which contrasted with the medium orange cabinet color. Since it was such an effort to put together and I would have had to disassemble it to return it, I kept it and hid the flaw by strategic placement of a lamp. We like the cabinet and our first one as well. But for the above problems it was a good value and meets our needs.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ReallyDissapointed Worst "some assembly required" experience EVER!
I have put together a lot of furniture so when I saw that many people were having difficulty putting together this file cabinet I thought it might be frustrating but doable. I was wrong. Not only were the directions woefully incomplete but the the cam locks (that hold the drawers and the top together) are so cheaply made that 5 of them broke. So the cabinet is not so much put together as precariously resting together. Do not buy this unless you enjoy enjoy wasting your money and time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TEA42 Disappointing
This item is not worth the amount of money it is being sold for. The directions were not clear, making it difficult to assemble, the paint scratches VERY easily and the drawers are very small. For the price I paid for this file cabinet, I shouldn't have had to assemble it myself, and I expected a much higher quality product. I was very disappointed and wish I would have saved my money.
