Realspace� 42 Steel Storage Cabinet With 2 Adjustable Shelves, 42H x 36W x 18D, Black
Worst Purchase Ever
We received this item and when we opened the box this item had dents in the metal. There were no directions on how to put it together. We thought the item already came assembled as this was not directly mentioned in the item description that we would have to put it together. It is a very flimsy cabinet and we are not happy with this purchase at all!!!! I would not recommend anyone to buy this product. After putting this item together without directions we ended p scratching the top of it. So now it completely looks like garbage. I would not reccomend anyone to purchase this item!! The only reason my company did not return is because we were running out of time to get our supply cabinet in place. Definitely the quality does not match the price on this purchase! This item is just plain out junk!!

This storage cabinet is the cheapest built piece of junk. I actually purchased two of these and will be returning the second one. Basically, very breakable tabs hold each section together. We'll see how long it lasts.

Decent cabinet for a decent price
This cabinet is average in quality. It has a decent finish, although it's not something I'd want to buy for everyday use. It's more for occasional storage. It's painted rather than powder coated, and the metal is easily dented, but then, this is average for cabinets of today. The price is pretty good for what it is.
It does take a while to assemble, and it really needs two for this task. I'm fairly handy and it took me about 40 minutes, so factor this into the price.
The lock is just a deterrent. An average person could probably pull this locked door open. If you want something more secure, it's definitely going to cost more, and should be built from heavier steel.
Judging by the weight Vs competitors, this unit is similar in construction to others in terms of strength.
Overall though, the shelves adjust easily and it looks good if you can get it assembled right. The shelves are decently strong, and the price is good for what it is.

Did not meet expectations
Please note in the description this cabinet comes unassembled. It comes in a flat box with a $30 extra delivery fee as a furniture delivery charge. The steel is very thin. A weak person could easily rip the doors off or get inside; the locking handle is nice but is only a visual deterrent. The black metal scratches easy and the pieces come with minor dents and chipped areas where the paint chipped off. After 1 hour assembling it, I debated with my boss about whether it was worth returning or getting replacement parts. The cabinet will serve our purpose but only because the room it is in locks as well. We also know if we go to move it, it will most likely break.
