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 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.

We have used this product in several homes simply because it is superior to some we have used in the past. The quality is great (no particle board) The shelf spacing is adjustable to accommodate nearly any bottle. I would highly recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stylish High quality at a reasonable price!
This medicine cabinet upgraded and updated my bathroom! The mirrored sides and interior make this cabinet look like very high end! The glass shelves are easy to wipe clean and there is lots of storage space. I love being able to easily style my hair by opening the side mirrors and then closing them softly with this nice feature.
I researched many medicine cabinets online and in showrooms before choosing this one. The reasonable price was a big factor in choosing this product. When the fellow that installed this for me opened the box he commented on how this type of cabinet was easier to install then most and the quality of the metal and glass impressed him so much he said he was going to order one for himself!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Coloradokid completely satisfied
I was surprised at the quality of this unit from China. It seems to have good quality control, fit and finish. Getting it shipped in one piece was a miracle considering all the glass and mirrors- although it did have one small minor bend in a side panel that I was able to straighten easy enough. Mounting the unit was no problem but it's handy to have someone help hold it against the wall when you place it on the bottom mounting rail prior to installing the top brackets. The multi-directional adjustable hinges are great in that they allow adjustment in all planes to get exact gap and mirror panel matches but I had to "fiddle around" a bit to get there. All in all though, we're completely satisfied with the end result.
