So, I purchased these drawers as part of a much larger overall order from Closet Evolution. I combined a few systems and components to build my walk-in closet using their easy-to-use design website. I'm going to list my overall experience with the drawers here.
The drawers are one of the neatest factors of the system. They are one long set of boards that have been cut to fold perfectly into a drawer with dowels already inserted. Each drawer takes less than 5 minutes to assemble. The one thing that I really didn't like is that the holes are not predrilled for the drawer slides, they provide you a template that you tape in place and then make screw marks through the template onto the wood so you can screw the slides on in the right place. I think this is an overlooked con of the whole thing. I guess there are different sized slides that you can get from them and that's why they aren't predrilled, but if that's the case they should've just predrilled the holes for both sizes and the customer could whichever set works for them. And let's not forget how much oil from the slides you get on your hand while performing this step. I also had 2 of the 6 drawer faces not line up with the other drawers, and it seems that it was the predrilled holes on the drawer faces that were misaligned. That's an easy fix, but still.
Altogether, I loved the overall look. The drawers are nice to have in the closet, I used to have a dresser in there but it was big and clunky and took up a lot of space which I don't have to worry about now.
We bought 4 of these drawers to stack in our closet unit. We have had them for about two weeks. They are heavy duty drawers that do need to be assembled with glue and screws, but directions are very clear and not hard to follow. The paper template supplied makes attaching the slides to the drawer fairly easy. The best thing about these drawers is the full-extension slider hardware. It is very smooth and solid. The full extension gives easy access to 100% of the drawer space. One complaint I have is that not enough screws were provided with the drawers, and although Martha Stewart assured me that they would be sent to me immediately, I still have not received them - over two weeks later. Not impressed with the customer service!
Works great, I was reconfiguring a custom closet and I was looking for some more drawers. I was skeptical about buying these, based on other reviews, but after visiting a store and seeing the difference between these and another Closet Maid company, it was a no brainer for my situation. Yes, the drawer box is made out of one piece of particle board, and then glued together, and guess what it works great! (I installed 2 * 12", 1 * 8" and 1 * 4" deep)
So far they have been doing great.
Could they have been predrilled for the drawer slides, sure, but it didn't take much effort to use the templates.

Overall the collection is great. I ordered 3 additional drawers and one came broken which made it virtually impossible to put together. After a little elbow grease, duct tape and silicone it was strong and usable.
I'm also not a big fan of having to cut a template and drill the holes. Why not just have them pre-drilled or stamped?
In the end, the area I fixed is hidden so life is good.
This product would have been 5 stars, but quality dropped it down. The entire collection is easy to install and looks great.
I'm glad it all worked out and I didn't have to spend more time shipping back and wasting resources.
This drawer is large enough for all my bras and underwear. This drawer was easy to assemble and the sliding part was also easy to install. The directions were very clear and came with a template to mark the screw holes on the sides of the drawer.
This item was shipped to me as it was not available in the store and was missing the two pouches with the knob and hardware by the time it arrived. Otherwise, everything was as expected. Easy to assemble, durable, and the finish is uniform.
