I read all of the reviews before deciding to purchase this file cabinet online and I?m glad I did! It is a very sturdy and attractive piece. I needed something inexpensive to coordinate with my cherry office furniture and although it is a bit dark, it blends in well. The box arrived with some heavy physical damage and I was afraid that some of pieces would be scratched or broken, but it was well padded and all pieces were fine. It took me about 2.5 hours to unpack and assemble this unit. There were styrofoam bits clinging to all of the pieces, so I vacuumed each piece as I pulled it out of the box. The directions were easy to follow for the most part?no descriptions, just pictures. Each page or step had it?s own individual packet of hardware labeled for that step. As one of the reviewers warned, I was careful to use glue only during steps where the picture of glue tube was shown. The most confusing part for me was the ballast. At first I thought it was a heavy base, but it was not the right size and upon closer examination of the instructions I realized that it is to be mounted on the inside of the lower back of the cabinet to counter-balance the weight of the drawer when it is open. The finished product is lovely. The drawers slide open and shut smoothly. One reviewer complained that the drawers didn?t slide well, but there are directions on how to adjust the drawers if that happens. All in all, I am very happy with this purchase. It is much nicer than I expected and a great bargain. I may change out the drawer pulls at some point as they are oil rubbed bronze and do not provide much contrast to the dark cherry/mahogany color. It is made from particle board, not hardwood so if you are looking for an heirloom to pass down to your kids, you might want to pass on this, but if you want an attractive, sturdy file cabinet that won?t break the bank I would highly recommend this lateral file cabinet.

I purchased 3 of these cabinets along with 2 matching desks for our home office. The combination looks great.
We had one damaged drawer front, but Office Depot replaced it right away.

This was a total waste of money. I'm throwing it away after only a year and buying a different cabinet. The drawers didn't line up and every time I opened a drawer I had to hold the drawer so it wouldn't fall. I tried putting back together and following the instructions but the products was defective and/or cheaply made. Very disappointed!
