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 FrozenTundra New Bathroom "medicine cabinet"
This is actually the second such unit I've purchased. The first became a linen cabinet in my basement bathroom. When I bought the house the bathroom had already seen the installation of a corner vanity, toilet and shower. I was so impressed by the quality of the first unit, I decided to buy a second and convert it to a corner medicine cabinet to go behind the sink. I did this by cutting off the back corners, and using one of the corners as backing in the corner to add strength to the installation. Both units stained up perfectly matching the existing corner vanity. I wasn't concerned about the new "medicine cabinet" lacking a mirror, because the prior owner had installed a mirror immediately to the right of the corner vanity, which also had an open space below the counter for a seated person in front of the mirror.
The quality of the solid oak face frame and door frame is truly impressive. The only downside was that the unit only comes with a single shelf. Not a problem though, I contacted the factory and ordered three additional shelves, so now the new "medicine cabinet" holds all of the little things typical for its purpose.

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.
