Not very impressed… Did not go together very well at all. Cheap quality for the price.

easy to put together, parts and pieces pretty much fit just right, after assembly, it fit right into a spot of my garage at just the place and I loaded it up. Bottom shelf is rated for 90 pounds and I placed bowling balls inside and I did not see any sagging. The doors fit well and there was no misalignment, which is very good. I was very happy with this. It should prove durable.
I had a few little glitches, there was a crack in the plastic top, but i think it was because I had to use a hammer to get the 2 parts seated. The drill holes for the door handles did not match exactly and so I had to use a tape measure to secure the door handles to the doors.

The cabinet has to be assembled and there is no text in the instructions, only drawings.
Just remember you are building a box - there is a bottom and top, two side panels and two back panels and two doors. Layout each before you start and you build from the bottom up.
It took me about 1 1/2 hours, but others should be able to do it quicker. The pieces snap together to form the box, but you do need a Phillips screwdriver and I highly recommend and electric screwdriver to attach the door handles.
There is an adjustable shelf that can hold 99 lbs. and the bottom shelf holds 150 lbs.
Keep in mind with the doors open it is almost 3 feet deep so keep that in mind when you place it.
It is roomy and sturdy and is useful for storage.

This cabinet was a breeze to put together. It took 2 people 15 minutes. We may not have needed 2 people, but having an extra person to hold things in place while adding a piece was very helpful.
This is a substantial piece of furniture. Not at all flimsy! I like everything about it with one exception. It would have been nice if there was a closer or a hasp of some sort to add a lock to the doors.
I have put a soda can in the cabinet picture to give you an idea of sizing.

Instructions were pretty clear, and assembly was straightforward.
The shelf is sturdy and the unit is without wobble.
The nice thing about this cabinet is that, since it is made of plastic, it won't rot the way wooden ones can.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah Easy to Assemble Storage Cabinet
I recently received the Keter base cabinet. I was a little wary about assembly as it primarily relies on snapping together plastic pieces. With some other brands and cabinets I've found that the pieces were hard to snap together or difficult to adjust if you made a mistake. Well, I was quite pleased with how the pieces fit. They clicked easily into place and since the directions were so straight forward I never even had to try to adjust anything. The hinges and handles were the only things that required a screwdriver. When putting the handles together I had a moment of confusion when it appeared the screw markings didn't line up with the handles but it turns out you just need to apply a bit more force to the bottom plastic part of the handle to get it aligned. The assembly went pretty quickly and the pieces were labeled well. Once it was all together it was a sturdy cabinet, perfect for tool storage or as we are using it a place for the kids to store their outdoor toys in the garage.

If you are looking for a place to store and organize your tools, paint cans, gardening supplies, keep reading, this product is for you! I was able to put it together by myself in about 10-15 minutes at a leisurely pace. There were more than enough screws and extra pieces in case I messed up or missed anything. The instructions were, for the most part, easy to understand and follow. The doors for the cabinet do not have a "this side up," but there is no wrong way to put those in; they have holes on the top and bottom for door handle placement, so you can put those in however you like. The back panels do have a "this side out" etched on them. The bottom feet have two adjustable screwing risers for leverage. The base also has a fifth leg for support; it states on the instructions that this leg should "snap" into place, but I haven't had any luck with it doing this, which means when moving the cabinet, I have to re-seat the leg. Regardless, this doesn't hinder its overall functionality of storing things! A lot of the parts are instructed to "snap" when placed in; sometimes they did "snap," sometimes they didn't, but they were still in there pretty good. However there are two openings on top and bottom of cabinet's inside that are supposed to have the longer covers that snap in according to instructions, but I've failed to get those in, for whatever reason. The cabinet includes some extra shelf supports in case you want to add more shelves in the future; the cabinet currently comes with one shelf. I have looked on the product's website and HD but have yet to see an option to buy another shelf. The pictures of this product are misleading as they show two shelves inside the cabinet, but this is not the case. You will see from the assembly instructions, only one shelf is included. There are two placements on the cabinet for the shelf, either a fourth of the way down or a fourth of the way up, but not a placement for halfway in the middle. This leaves undesired space, either more space on top or bottom, but no balance or equal space because of the nonexistent second shelf. This isn't exactly a bad thing, but I'm just making sure you are aware of this. For me, the absence of a second shelf is OK; I can place my paint cans and heavier objects down there (approximately 99 pounds on shelf, and 154 pounds on base)! The doors work well, and the handles have a good feel to them. You could add a padlock if needed, unfortunately it doesn't include one.
For its ultimate purpose of storing items, it meets the requirements. It just doesn't exceed with the lack of second shelf and perhaps a slide out drawer up top for some tools. The extra screws and pieces were nice during install, gave me peace of mind. The cabinet has freed up a good bit of space in my garage, and the top of the cabinet allows me to place my radio and other knickknacks; I'm currently working on organizing this part! The cabinet is mostly plastic but doesn't feel cheap with the reinforced metal. And with the metal door handles, it gives it more personality. I definitely recommend this one, and I'm actually considering buying a second one for more garden tools.

I am such a fan of organized storage in the garage. I started out with all my stuff along the side of the car. Now I have a tall Keter cabinet that I already reviewed and this shorter wider style cabinet. I have all my small clutter items in those 2 great cabinets.
This base cab was delivered to my front door and we brought it in. Then since it was so cold outside and in my unheated garage, we decided to assemble it in warm comfort and carry it to the garage later. Good idea.
Since we had already assembled the tall unit, we had some experience with the instructions that were provided. They are pretty much just pictures. I prefer some written instructions but as I said, with experience we did not have much trouble.
We first took everything out of the well packed shipping box. Then sorted it out and started to build it from the bottom up. It took about an hour and only needed a screwdriver for the hinges and the handles. Everything else snapped together. I would recommend these cabinets for anyone that needed storage in the basement, garage, laundry room or wherever needed.
