Rated 3 out of 5Â by Jim44212 Okay, but not perfect
Not terrible quality like some lower-priced options, but the hinges weren't the best (could not eliminate a slight popping on close, no matter how the hinges were adjusted). Parts were missing on delivery (all the shelves) that took a week to receive. Installation was easy.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Richard Wouldn't buy again
Are they well made? Yes. Every detail is nicely finished and they look good, but I would not bother with them again.
They fit flush to the wall. That's good at first blush, but almost all wall spaces are the same 2x4-determined depth. That makes them shallower than many other boxes which, like our old cabinets, projected an unnoticeable extra 1/2" off the wall. The depth is made shallower still by mirrors on both the inside of the door and on the rear face of the box. Nice, but... We used to stick things on the insides of the doors, e.g., a magnetic medication minder, etc. -- not any more.
That our old boxes extended slightly off the wall had two benefits: the boxes were deeper inside and could hold more. Second, the doors, which on all the boxes overlap the boxes, in effect had a lip both at bottom and along the side where you could hook your finger to open them. Being flush, these boxes have no such lip. You have to develop something of technique to open these. I ultimately drilled into the bottom of the doors and installed an spare shelf support I adapted as a finger catch to ease opening.
Finally, I really dislike the hinges. They're the kind of L-shaped, hidden hinges found on better kitchen cabinets. Once again, at first blush that sounds upscale and good, but in practice it isn't. On a kitchen cabinet, they are relatively small, but on boxes of this size the same hinges are enormous. They occupy space in the boxes, and a portion of each hinge moves inward as the door closes. We had to plan where objects could be placed to avoid breakage or conflict with the doors' movement. Frankly, the cheap piano hinges on our old boxes served better.
The bottom line is that for this much money, I ought to have fewer objections to a nicely finished, "upscale" medicine cabinet. They're lovely, but I would buy them again.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by diyurbangirl A surface mount kit (not included) is required
didn't even get this product completely unwrapped. as soon as I saw there was no way to wall mount despite the online description, i packed it back up. when i contacted home depot, they said they would return it and schedule pick-up, but nu-tone denied the return and instead offered to send a free wall mount kit. although home depot agreed the web description was misleading, i had to take it back to the home depot store for return.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cigar This item was exactly what I needed for this installation
I looked everywhere for this item. It was only available through Home Depot. The only bad thing was it's an "internet only" item so I had to wait for delivery.
Both cabinets arrived safely as they were packed "twice"...double boxed for shipping. I guess if the freight company really wanted to, they could have broken the glass shelves or bent the box up.
Installation took a few minutes as the wall needed a bit of attention. But once cut out properly, they slid into place, installed with four screws (supplied) and the job was done.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MDEV Substantial and well-made
From the time the shipment arrived, I suspected I had made a good decision. The cabinets were very well-packaged and everything we needed was included. The cabinets are well-made and are exactly what I needed. Extra glass shelves, more space, lots of mirrors. We replaced some older cabinets that had cheap plastic shelves that had broken. I was tired of things that belong IN the cabinet being on the counter. We were able to organize beautifully. I would definitely recommend this product. Although I did not install these myself, I do not believe that they were overally difficult to install.
