I wish I knew beforehand that building an arrangement with these cabinets poses a large disadvantage. I bought two 32x20x72 inch storage cabinets, two four drawer bases and two 28 inch wall cabinets. I spent over $1100.00. The two large storage cabinets require an 1 1/2 inch space between them. The wall cabinets require a 1 inch space between them and the large cabinet. The wall cabinets require an 1 1/2 inch space between each other. The 4 drawer cabinets have lovely stainless steel tops, but they cannot be set side by side. The base cabinets have 1/4 inch flanges on the top and bottom sides of each one. The net result, is that the stainless steel tops have a half inch divide between them. I don't know who is responsible for these designs, but buyer beware. If I hadn't spent eight hours assembling the six cabinets I would have returned them. In a garage, the spaces will be dirt and vermin collectors.

Assembly is quite involved, be prepared to spend some time on it. If you have a large flat table to work on (rather than the floor) you back will thank you. But follow the directions carefully, and all will go well. Above all, DON'T TIGHTEN anything until it's all together, you'll need to check all corners with a square before tightening.
For the life of me, I can't get the doors to align evenly...but this is just cosmetic, they still function fine. I bought two cabinets, and one had a defective lock...a quick call to Husky customer service and a replacement lock arrived a few days later. As you're assembling, the cabinets might seem rather flimsy...no worries, once everything is tight and snug they are quite solid and sturdy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doug Cabinet OK, Mounting design flawed
Bought two of these to mount side by side. Easy enough to put together. Overall, they are constructed reasonably well. The number and location of the assembly screws seem adequate and although it would probably be better if they used one gauge thicker metal, the selected gauge should suffice so long as you don't load it with very heavy items. They look nice as well.
However, there are some design and market offering flaws. As other posters noted, they only include one shelf (although there are mounting slots for 3 shelves) and the bottom surface of the cabinet is recessed 2" making it impractical to see and locate small items. Home Depot doesn't offer additional shelves...you have to order them. To make matters worse, you cannot add shelves after assembly, you have to disassemble them before adding more shelves. So be warned, if you want more shelves, removed the directions from the box, call the 800 to order shelves and stash boxes until the extra shelves arrive.
My biggest gripe is the mounting options. It uses a proprietary track mounting system. Husky provides a metal bracket that attaches to the cabinet, but no wall matching wall bracket. The intended wall bracket is called "Secure Lock" and is part of a wall organization system. Fortunately, Home Depot carries it for $8 per section of track...another trip to the store and another $8/cabinet for the Secure Lock. Unfortunately, the secure lock track comes in one length which is too long for one cabinet and too short for two. Secondly the track is made of plastic. Eventhough Husky claims that it hold 75lbs per linear foot, the mounting lip is only 1/8" wide. Given plastic grows brittle with time, I don't have a high level of confidence in this mounting system, so I'm looking for a better option.
Husky should include a "metal" wall mounting bracket with the cabinets. Additionally, the bracket on the cabinet sticks up about a 1/4" above the cabinet which isn't astectically appealing.
They provide an option for mounting the cabinet directly to the wall with two screws using either 16 or 24 inch spacing...but really, two screws? I suspect the cabinets would bend/warp if you put much weight in them using this mounting system. This also forces you to separate the cabinets by 4" using 16" spaced studs or 20" using 24" spaced studs.
Another design flaw is that the hinge mounts for the doors extend beyond the edge of the cabinet which makes mounting the cabinets flush against one another and bolting them together impossible.
In summary, Husky screws up a descent cabinet with some mounting design flaws...all of which would have been easy to avoid without any increase in cost. I would hesitate to recommend this cabinet to a friend until I (or Husky...hint, hint) figure out a better mounting system.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GuyInTX Good Cabinet, Two-Person Installation
Assembly was easy and there were none of the usual issues (missing parts, bent pieces or holes that don't line up) that you see with some knockdown style cabinets. Took under an hour to put each of my two units together.
Wall mount installation was a little more difficult and I had to have help keeping it in place while I got it screwed in place. Not a lot of room for the drill when mounting, but it was still only a 5 - 10 minute job.
Cabinet holds a lot, but I would like to have had at least one more shelf.
Great cabinet for the money. Make sure you have room for an extra couple of inches between the cabinets if you are planning on mounting them side by side!

This is a great addition to my garage/man cave! Two 28" Husky wall cabinets, one 27" floor cabinet with drawers, and two 27" floor cabinets. We now have a garage that is the envy of the neighborhood. Thank you Home Depot!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Erock time consuming to build, but worth it
The first one I assembled took well over an hour. That was partly for me skimming the instructions. The third and final one took me 45 minutes. They are worth it though. Coming in around $115 (if i remember?) they look great and they are solid. As others have pointed out, you cannot mount these close to each other as the doors hinge outward.

I really like the look of the cabinet. Seems pretty sturdy. My only complaints are that it must have been damaged during transit as a corner of one of the doors was bent. I was able to bend this back but unfortunately the door would not close flush. I did overcome this by adding a couple magnets to help keep the doors closed. Would also have been nice to have a section of track wall come with this product to hang it.
Overall I like it but I would've brought it back for an exchange if they would've had another one at the store due to the bent door. I made it work and it looks great on my wall
