Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by McFishstick Great economy cabinet
I used 2 of these cabinets and 2 of the 30x12x12 in cabinets to create the 42" cabinets that I wanted. They look great and seem sturdy enough. I used a Wagner Flexio paint sprayer to get a great finish and installed them in my laundry room for a custom look. Perfect for the weekend warrior although painting took a few more weekends to get the finish I was looking for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KenNashville Great for the money, even better if you finish them.
These cabinets are exactly as the name says, "unfinished". So, they would be great as-is for a workshop or a garage if you don't care about a finish. We installed two of them side by side over the washer and dryer and I took the time to finish them. I lightly hand sanded all of the oak parts and then painted with a quality white paint. It took some time but they look absolutely beautiful now. For installation, get the right screws and take the time to do the install right. HD sells screws specifically made for cabinet installation. They have a wider head for more holding power against a flat surface. If done right there is no way these will fall down. I installed a small 1"x2" ledger strip beneath mine for added support and ease of install.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ROlmstead Good for budget installations
Picked up two of these unfinished oak cabinets when they were on sale. I selected unfinished oak because I needed to match other stained oak cabinets already installed in the room. In general, the construction is sturdy enough but I would note four issues that one should consider.
*The instructions for mounting are pretty generic and you'll probably need to get additional hardware (i.e., I wouldn't simply screw the particle board backs into the walls - I glued in oak 1x2's for reinforcements in my case but there is cabinet hanging hardware that would work if you are putting up a long row).
*There were quite a few glue drips, including on visible faces of the oak. And it's not easy glue to sand off. If there's glue on the insert panels, take care not to sand too deep because they are just veneer.
*The 30" high cabinet come with only one adjustable shelf.
*The side panels that were available were a mess - too thin, warped, cracked. I will need to source the side panel elsewhere.
Given the finish quality and likely lower durability, I would not use these cabinets for kitchens (this installation is a laundry room).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Razor Decent cabinet, great value
What you get for the money absolutely cannot be beat. I looked everywhere for a low-cost solution for my bathroom renovation and did not find anything anywhere that compared to the value of these cabinets. Are they top of the line? Of course not, but the quality is enough that I don't see any reason that they would not hold up to regular use.
As described, the doors and the external facing frame are real unfinished oak. I painted the outside of mine white and the end result is comparable to a much more expensive cabinet. Inside the cabinet is one adjustable shelf. Note that the inside cabinet & shelf are not oak and therefore are not easily painted or stained.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by retiredgal Excellent product- looks great
I bought two (2) of these to mount on the wall of my space challenged dining area. The purpose was to add storage for extra dishware & a small buffet surface. To make them appear as a piece of furniture, I added decorative legs to the front, thin birch plywood to the sides and a top surface of black granite 12x12 tiles. I added trim and stained the entire piece a dark black/brown mahoghany color and voila' !! - a stunning and VERY functional piece of furniture. Mine were actually 24" wide, instead of 30", but the effect was the same.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chele You get what you pay for!
The boxes are solid and square, yes. The doors though...you will spend so much time caulking, puttying, sanding, priming, and painting trying to westle these doors into submission, it really isn't worth it. If you're going to use them in the garage or you just need one or two pieces, fine...an entire kitchen, no way!
If you have WAY more time than you have money, go for it. If not, spring for the finished doors.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great cabinet for the price.
My wife and I bought one of these cabinets to hang above the washer in the laundry room. It looks great with a light oak stain. It was VERY easy to hang and is proving to be an excellent purchase. We are going to buy one or two more for more storage in the laundry room. This has turned out to be an excellent value that was easy to finish and mount.
