These ball bearing drawer slides are just what I needed for a top dresser drawer. They're full extension, so I can open the drawer all the way to get to everything inside of it, without having to peer into the dark interior of the dresser. There's also a release lever on the side to remove the slides completely. Good instructions are included as well.
The soft close feature is great, and actually closes the drawer for you the last 2-3 inches. It's a little bit harder to open the drawer initially, since it's setting the spring loaded soft close mechanism, but the tiny extra effort is definitely worth having the feature.
The slides are very well constructed, and surprisingly heavy. They're definitely built to last!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hershpersh Don't close properly
I use Blum slow-close slides when possible, but sometimes I need a set of drawer slides quick. I picked these up trying to complete a last minute project under a tight deadline. They were installed flawlessly, but no matter how hard I "slammed" the wooden 18" x 18" drawers closed, they stop short and the slow-close mechanism never finished its job. I fiddled with them for a bit longer and over and over (even adding weights to the drawer), they didn't function like they should. I returned them and had better results with the plain full-extend slides without the slow-close function plus saved money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reconjack Very nice upgrade to any drawer, add on hardware isnt so great
After figuring out that I needed 22 inch soft close slides for my 18 inch drawers in the kitchen, install wasn't all that difficult. The directions are about useless as the only measurement they give that's correct is the 1 1/4" mounting of the slide to the drawer itself. The add on rear brackets needed for any face frame drawer (most any pre-built type stuff is face frame as was the run of the mill drawers I bought from Home Depot years back that these were going into), aren't very well designed. For a heavy duty slide setup like this, the brackets you are forced to buy to make it work are plastic (part D806), and the screws that come with them are all but worthless, too small in length and head size. After figuring out the proper measurements to mount them to the rear inside of my drawer housing, I used 1 5/8 inch dry wall screws that seated and held much better. The initial setup (figuring out which ones you need, vice hardware) will be a pain, but once they're installed and leveled, they work as intended even allowing the entire drawer to slide out of the cabinet itself unlike the low end slides that keep roughly 1/4 of the drawer hidden at max. As these were the only reasonable option I've found that was readily available, they are a good value and I would use them again.

The drawer slides work fine once properly installed. Installation was difficult in my cabinets. The rails require a flat surface for installation. My cabinets were fabricated differently. They had a frame with 1/4-1/2 inch veneer glued to the frame forming the outside of the cabinet. I had to glue and screw a spacer board to the veneer to make the flat surface. After the rails were installed I then had to add cardboard shims between the rails and spacer boards to adjust the distance between the rails so the drawer would open smoothly. The rails must be attached to the drawer and inside the cabinets with precision and consistency or the drawer will not be level, slide in and out easily or close properly. The product is fine but installation was difficult and time consuming (about 4hrs per drawer.).

Product was great. Installation was a lil tricky but overall it was great. The only thing it didn't snap shut automatically as the draw I believe is heavy, but overall the product is great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Srichards329 Best Drawer Slides I've Ever Had
I purchased 5 pairs (there are 2 per set) and installed them in my new kitchen remodel. Yes, the instructions are skimpy... but if you don't know what you are doing then you have 2 choices... go through a learning curve and LEARN by trial and error... or do an internet search which will give you many examples of how to build drawers and install drawer slides.
I've read the 1-star and 2-star reviews and I just don't get it. I'm a senior and a long-time DIY'er. Before the internet.. I went through a trial-by-error learning curve. Now I use it for any new project even though at my age I've done a heckuva lot!
I think people who said they measured correctly when they built their drawers because they bind or fit sloppy are a bit mistaken! When cutting the drawer bottom (for example) one must cut OUTSIDE the line rather than directly ON the line or inside the line. Many people DON'T take into consideration the THICKNESS of their saw blade. Cut right on or inside the line and you'll be x 2 the thickness of your saw blade LESS than your specifications! You'll have a sloppy fit. Cut too far outside the line and you'll have a binding fit.
As for me... my 5 drawers fit perfectly and soft close. I'm happy. My wife is happy and life is good. ;-) I removed a built-in oven we never used (except to heat pizza two or three times per year) and boxed it in nicely and added 3 soft-close drawers. I also removed a dish washing machine we never used as its a waste of resources. We hand wash everything which is much cleaner and more sanitary than letting hard to clean protean build up on dishes and pans then expecting a dish washing machine to clean them as well as we can. Again, I boxed in this area and installed 2 soft-close drawers to hold pots and pans. Wonderful! We never have to bend over to the bottom shelf or get on our knees to find that special pot or pan which is always way the heck back in the furthermost reaches of a shelf! Just pull a drawer out for easy to reach pots and pans! Best of all, these drawer slides support 100 lbs.
I would highly recommend these drawer slides to anybody... and if you don't know how to build a drawer, Home Depot offers a variety of pre-built drawers you might be interested in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CodyAC Great slide in the beginning but didn't last long
I bought these for a baby changing table that would be in the nursery. I didn't want to be slamming the drawers in the middle of the night when the baby needed a quick and quiet change. I installed three sets of these on three different drawers and loved them at first. They worked excellent and they were super quiet. However now a little over a year I have two drawers that have problems. One drawer the quiet mechanism doesn't work so it is basically just a normal drawer slide which I can live with. The second drawer one side still tries to do the quiet slide while the other one hangs up and won't allow one side of the drawer to close completely. I could say that I might have screwed something up however I haven't ever had the drawers out since the build until just this last week to try and fix them. I also haven't overloaded them because the only thing in the drawers are baby clothes. I think it is a great idea and a pretty decent product but I haven't seen the longevity out of these that I would have liked. I will be switching to normal heavy duty slides and will just have to be care to not slam them in the middle of the night. Just my .02!
