Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toolman A visual knockout!
A reasonably priced, visually arresting medicine cabinet with a high-end look that will leave your guests peppering you with questions about where you got it and how much you paid. Hefty (you’ll definitely need someone to help lift the unit into position for installation unless you remove the doors), the cabinet is shipped to Home Depot or your address in packaging that would prevent damage to contents even more prone to breakage; each component is carefully segregated by oversized cardboard wedges, and all glass surfaces protected by shrink wrap and plastic clips that hold the doors securely in place. The instruction manual is printed on 8½” X 11” paper and features exploded parts and assembly diagrams that are highly readable and which facilitate installation.
All surfaces are mirrored including the backs of the doors & behind the shelves. The unit is marketed as a “tri-view,” but the mirrors on the sides actually render it a quadruple-view cabinet. All that glass and reflection capacity make your bathroom seem much larger than it really is.
My rating for this product is a true indication of my degree of satisfaction with this purchase. However, there are a couple of caveats worthy of note. First, this cabinet is advertised as having both recessed and surface-mount capabilities. It does. Yet despite the fact that recessing the unit is a considerably more complex operation, more than 95% of the instruction manual is devoted exclusively to how to surface mount it. Buyers interested in recessing should access the many how-to-recess-mount-a-medicine-cabinet videos on the Internet before proceeding. These videos will enlighten the DIYer regarding possible problems arising from cutting into load-bearing walls while framing and obstructions like electrical wiring and hidden plumbing which may render recessing cost-prohibitive or outright impossible. Initially we had favored a recessed instillation, but after examining the wall cavity through a 4” X 4” hole cut into the drywall (as suggested in one of the videos), we concluded that a $600 plumber’s fee to relocated buried water and vent pipes just wasn’t worth it. Ironically this discovery proved serendipitous because surface mounting adds unexpected dimensionality to the unit (along with the side mirrors which would otherwise have been lost) that we absolutely LOVE!
Second, each of the glass shelves has the Chinese manufacture’s name and product info hot-stamped in black ink onto them. This is a really cheesy add-on to what is otherwise a really classy piece of merchandise.
Finally, a short-sighted manufacturing design limits the number of options you have regarding shelf placement. The right side has its own set of shelves while a second set covers the remaining 2/3 of the cabinet. To accommodate any items taller than the set height of all the shelves, your only option is to remove one of the shelves entirely. All this could have been avoided had the manufacturer drilled a few more holes for the shelf holders which would have allowed buyers to tailor shelf height to their own preferences rather than being forced to accept the three fixed positions provided, something that would not likely have added more than a dime to the cost of the product.
The photos I’ve included of this renovation project include two other Home Depot purchases, a 48” St. Paul custom vanity top (solid bone color, AB Lite Engineered Technology) with a rectangular bowl (white) and a Glacier Bay Edgewood bath faucet in brushed nickel, each of them, like the medicine cabinet, DIY owner installed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aknight Best medicine cabinet I have ever owned.
Beautiful and well made. Nothing is cheap construction. You will be happy with this. You must remove the doors to install unless you are very strong. It is too heavy with them. They are easily reinstalled.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WildBill Cost effective alternative
Remodeling bathroom & contractors fixture supplier had only overly fancy too expensive medicine cabinets. We found this to fit what we wanted and saved considerable. Contractor installed the unit, so I can't comment on ease of installation except he did not complain. The three shelves in this unit awe not adjustable although the three shelves in another, smaller, unit by Glacier Bay we got for our other bathroom were adjustable which would have been nice for this unit.

Great product for the price. I love the mirrors inside the cabinet, they seem to expand the bathroom.
