Took a bit of time to put together but it looks good underneath the new wooden desktop we had installed. Seems to be sturdy enough and the drawers pull in and out well.

This piece was more difficult to assemble than expected; the instructions were a series of pictures. Proper orientation was highlighted for some pieces, but not for others, though it was needed. Take a lot of time putting this together. In particular, aligning the drawer faces is a tough task.

The end product looks nice, but getting there was a chore. I am pretty good at mechanical assembly as long as the instructions have some illustrations - but these instructions are 99% pictures and imprecise images of screws and fasteners that look very similar.
Despite carefully laying the parts out as illustrated, I managed to mount the drawer slides to extend in opposite directions. Then I found that, after having carefully taken apart the slides and mounting the guide to the side panel, and re-inserting the slide, since I did it backwards, I can't take it apart to fix it since the slide release is now inaccessible - until I noticed that by lining up a random very small hole over the screw and using a tiny screwdriver that fit through the small hole, I barely had enough leverage to remove the screw - but only because I did not have it really tight. . .When I corrected that, I then had the top and bottom panels reversed. (sigh)
Cons-If you really tighten the screws, they will countersink right through the panel. The top 2 drawers don't extend as far as the file drawer so you lose some drawer space. You need to be able to lock the wheels so it doesn't roll when you open the drawer with too much vigor.
Now, putting the next one together will be a piece of cake - but this one took most of a day to assemble, disassemble, re-assemble, swear, undo it, then finally get it right.
But I like the final product.

Rated 5 out of 5�by ErnieL The Bush Furniture is well priced, well built.
The reviews on the site knock the product for being exactly what they ordered. It ships needing assembly, but it says it does. If you want it assembled, order the product with premium installation. Its assembly is reasonably complex, but it is a 3 drawer filing cabinet. I would label it as time consuming rather than difficult. I don't know how you would make it more simple, other than shipping it fully assembled. (Which is an option.)
We have six offices with various setups of the Bush furniture collection. It allows us to move elements around to different employees. They look nice and we regularly get complements on them. They do have the gray sides, but that is how they are pictured and designed. I like that they are broken up, not all wood textured. As far as fit and finishes, once the products are assembled and put in place, they stand up well. They do not move all that well, but then most things don't. I do wish the drawers had a self closing drawer slide, but I haven't seen that on a product in this price category.
All in all, we continue to purchase more as we expand.
