Realspace� 72 Steel Storage Cabinet With 4 Adjustable Shelves, 72H x 36W x 18D, Black
GOOD, WITH RESERVATIONS!
When you finally do get this to stay together long enough to get the top on it, it's a reasonably sturdy cabinet. It will come apart several times before you get to that point however, so have an adult beverage handy to help with the irritation of putting it together, but not too many, because it's flimsy until assembled and you need your faculties.
I have it loaded with file storage boxes full of documents, and the top shelf with office supplies, and it's plenty sturdy to handle the weight. The doors also open, close and lock smoothly, a good sign it's square.
If you can get it together, you'll like it. I did it by myself and it took about 90 minutes, mainly because it kept coming apart.

It is very nice and light weight so we can easily install.

This thing is a waste of money. Flimsy and falls apart as soon as you get it half way together.

So... I almost didn't buy this cabinet based on some of the other reviews. The one review that convinced me to go ahead & buy was the person who wrote: "Good at second site". Their review seemed fair & reasonable. This cabinet is NOT a Hon, just like a Hyundai is NOT a Mercedes. This cabinet is however, an affordable alternative to high end, high priced office furnishings. If you're planning to buy this for your corporate office where the employees have no regard or respect for the equipment there, ... don't. It won't last a week. If however, you are purchasing this for perhaps, your own home office, where you might have a little respect for your own "stuff", then I absolutely recommend this cabinet. I was able to put this thing together in about 45 minutes, carefully slid it into place, & loaded it with stuff. You'll need to pay close attention to some of the "tabs" as they may need to be slightly bent out to ease assembly, but aside from that, putting the thing together is real straight forward.
One critique that I do have is that I wish that the sheet metal would have been just one gauge thicker. Make sure that you have a rubber mallet. Gonna need that!
That being said, for the money, this one will do. I think that it will last for quite some time. If you can afford better, you should buy something "higher up the ladder".
