Realspace? Premium Wood File, 4 Drawers, 55 2/5H x 21W x 18 9/10D, Dark Cherry
Really Great Quality for Price
My husband and I put this together in about an hour and were very happy with the purchase. It is solid wood and really nice quality - it looks beautiful! It is sturdy too. Even the back paneling that is particle board is better quality - put on with screws instead of nails. I'm glad I read the reviews, because it's really a great product for great price. We did not want to have to get a metal filing cabinet, and I'm glad so far that we didn't.
I don't think the color was that far off the picture, certainly not 10 shades lighter. I would still classify it as (medium) dark cherry, but not deep dark cherry. For the money, definitely get a solid wood piece like this one and do a quick stain if you're super picky about the color.
We wanted an exact match so put on 1 coat of Miniwax Polyshades (the stain and polyurethane combined) using the color Bombay Mahogany. That made it exactly the glossy, deep dark cherry we wanted with very little effort (about 1.5 hours to super lightly sand with just some sandpaper and then put 1 coat on all of the assembled pieces. I did it during the kids' naptime). You could easily stain it with several coats and get an even deeper cherry.
I tried to upload a picture, but it errored out several times.
All our pieces matched the appropriate sizes, with extras too, and they shipped them my favorite way: all sorted out in little packets for Step 1, Step 2, etc. We were also pleased that the most annoying part of drawer installation (the silver sliding bars) were already fully assembled on all components. We were just putting the wood together, which was great.
Cons: I also think it would've been nice if all the drawers locked so young grabby hands couldn't get in, but it's hidden in our office, so I'm not that worried about it.
I also think you needed more glue. But the wood pegs are just stabilizers that are secured by screws, so by the time I ran out of glue, I wasn't that worried about losing any structural integrity.

I purchased this product for my home office. It is well made and sturdy, I thought it would come assembled (don't know why) but assembly was easy and instructions were clear to follow. Wish it would have a little bit more room in the drawers but good product overall.

Really nice looking very pleased
Very pleased with the finished product but pretty tricky trying to assemble with only one person. A suggestion would be is to assemble the base while assembling the sides instead of after side assembly as shown in the instructions. As with most assembly type furniture particle board is used throughout however all outside surfaces are wood veneers and is very good looking when finished and pretty sturdy, as a matter of fact I may buy another.

Exactly What I Wanted
I wanted a file cabinet to replace my 2-drawer metal cabinet. Most wooden cabinets I've seen were way out of my price range. This fit the bill perfectly. Arrived in just a few days. It took my husband and I about 2 hours to put it together, with no major problems doing it. I know he ended up using some power tools to speed up the process a little, but other than that it wasn't too bad. There is a bit of a wooden musty smell to it, but I think that's dissipating now that it's been out of the box for awhile. I've transferred all my files over and have the extra room I needed. My only minor complaint is that only the top drawer locks - wish they all did. It's not the highest quality wood and the color is lighter than dark cherry as some other reviewers stated, but overall it looks nice and does that job that I needed it to do.
