Quality construction. Two person job, but fairly easy to install. Door adjustments took some thought.

Nearing the end of our bathroom update, I ordered this larger cabinet in order to do away with clutter on the counter. The first one that came had a broken mirror on the larger side as well as the 2 side finishing mirrors used for surface mounting. As several others have noted, wrapping these mirror strips in a single sheet of bubble wrap and letting them bounce loosely around the side of the box isn't the best shipping method. The second shipment, luckily, arrived in perfect condition.
The cabinet frame is made of solid aluminum, with mirrored doors inside and out, as well as along the entire inside back area, which will hopefully protect against rusting or warping much better than wood, laminates, or steel in such a humid environment. There are 3 thick, adjustable tempered glass shelves for the narrow side and 2 for the wider one, allowing for 7 total levels of storage. The cabinet also has soft close doors, which gently shut on their own once they're within 8-12" of the cabinet, preventing the possibility of slamming.
At first, since the cabinet is quite heavy, it was a bit daunting to tackle the installation, but it turned out to be quite easy in the end. The fact that the cabinet is 3 feet wide should hopefully allow you to hit at least 2 studs for a more secure attachment if surface mounting. I marked out the stud location top and bottom in pencil on the wall, allowed for clearance of the faucet when opening the doors, then centered and mounted the bottom rail to the studs with 2 wood screws as well as 2 of the plastic anchors provided. We then loosely installed the top brackets along the top track of the cabinet (they fit into an open groove in the center and then adjust wherever you need within the track), lifted the cabinet into place, and then slid the brackets sideways where desired and marked the area in pencil, making sure to use at least the 2 wood studs once again, along with 2 other plastic anchor sites. We took the cabinet back down, drilled the 4 appropriate top anchor locations , and then the cabinet was lifted into place onto the bottom rail one final time, while my husband held the top in place and I installed the 4 top brackets.
The nice part is that the cabinet is completely adjustable side to side at any point. I had marked the center on the outside mirror top and bottom with tape, as well as in pencil on the wall ahead of time, so we were able to shift it slightly into perfect position before fully tightening the top brackets. Also, our wall, as is the case in many instances, wasn't completely flat, so I loosened the bottom rail screws just slightly once the cabinet was initially seated on the support strip in order to fit the cabinet properly within the narrow bottom groove. Once done, it took seconds to tighten them again.
A word of advice about mounting the side mirrors for surface mounting: be very careful that they're properly located before touching the sticky tape at all because once they touch they're not moving. I barely touched the top bracket during positioning and was slightly 'off' on my first attempt. Likely no one would have noticed, but it bothered me, so I had to remove the entire top bracket from the inside. Removing the tape from the mirror back resulted in having it stretch and very slowly peel off in pieces. I was lucky enough, though, not to break the mirror and then used another bracket instead, since one side of our cabinet is close to a wall and didn't really need a mirror.
Ultimately, this is a really nice cabinet and I would purchase it again without hesitation. Just use caution and have help during installation, since all those mirrors inside and out make it a hefty piece. Mark all your mounting locations ahead of time to make things go smoothly and securely, read the instructions, and just use common sense.

Always tough for me to buy stuff unseen but product is as I had hoped. Seems like good quality but time will tell. No issues with packaging and arrived in timely fashion. Installation easy to figure out and directions marginally acceptable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by john looks great, but......
This unit was NOT easy to install :-( took the doors off to lighten the load during installation process.When doors reattached, doors were off kilter at point where met. The printed instructions were lacking and there is not a company address or telephone number for help. Spent alot of time fiddling with inside screws before found combo that straighten doors. Had removed some wall tile to make room for the 36" width, didnt think about the fact that side/end mirror would add enough depth that would need to mount unit further away from tile. I would recommend this product for the quality and look.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by remerald1313 Very nice mirror
I bought this medicine cabinet because of it's asymmetrical mirrors. Most medicine cabinets have the tri-mirrors and I wanted something different. For the price, this is a great product. It's really pretty, well made, and very easy to install. We (husband and I) wall mounted it with ease. It has mirrors on the inside of the doors which is perfect because you can see yourself even if you need to open the door for something. But being that it's all mirror, prints can be an issue. I don't mind too much since I'm a clean freak. I've only had it up for about 3 days but I love it.

This Medicine cabinet looks great, is well made, and has a great design for the installation. The cabinet was securely packaged and came without any damage. This cabinet offers a great value while providing a quality product that looks great. Fit and finish is good; however, I did make a minor adjustment to the hinges to perfect the door alignment once the unit was hung. Installing the unit was rather easy compared to most units I have installed previously. You simply install the bottom support bracket into wall studs making sure it is level. Once the bracket is secured place the cabinet onto the support bracket which eliminates the need to hold the heavy cabinet while drilling, etc.. Once the cabinet is in position you will need to drill and secure the top brackets while your assistant steadies the cabinet on the bottom bracket.
