Sauder� Storage Cabinet, 71 1/2H x 29 3/4W x 16 1/4D, Ebony Ash
Sauder� Storage Cabinet
I've purchased 3 of these and all 3 came in well packaged and un-damaged condition.
I was able to handle them on my own, but it would be safer to get a second person to move around the packages with you prior to un-packing.
From un-packing to final screw, they went up within 30 minutes. Instructions appears to be short and clear and at the end you end up with at least one spare screw from each set and a few extra nails.
Doors can be adjusted from the hinges up and down or left to right about 0.25 inches depending how close you like them to each other when they close.
Each of the small shelves can be adjusted in 3 different positions.
Cons; The small piece covers the very bottom front is slightly loose because it's not fasten with screws but once it sits on the ground it's not noticeable.

I was looking for a armoire type storage unit for my room, to hold basically everything I use daily and also conceal them. I rent a room so I needed a place to store canned goods, dry goods, all my hair and makeup stuff and school stuff; so far I love it. No complaints. My bf put it together and he had no problems. It took him about an hour. It has a nice black finish and is very sleek looking. Does not wobble, instructions were clear to follow. Most importantly it is strong and sturdy and not cheapy looking. I would definitely recommend this!
Note: I bought this directly from the store and there were some scuffs on it most likely due to poor packaging or careless storage because the box it was in was ripped and because of that the back of the storage unit was scuffed so the manager was professional and courteous & ended up dropping the price down even lower for me. You can't even see the scuffs because they are in the back and not visible. I also like that the shelves are cubed. (you can change that if you want)

I purchased two units for my new home office. It took my husband and I less than 2 hours to put together both cabinets and secure them side by side to the wall. Wow. I can't believe how great they look. I love the adjustable shelves which give me loads of storage space. I also purchased colorful storage bins and trays to use inside to further organize may stuff.

This is DIY furniture. It is what it is. Don't expect to get something you can move or use anywhere except indoors. Once you set it up, you should leave it where it sits. It looks fine for light storage use in my office, and the finish went well with the rest of my furniture.
A couple of assembly hints:
Take stock of the pieces first. sort the hardware into sections to make finding what you need easier. They don't pre-sort any of the screws and nails. They all come in one bag
I would suggest adding a line of Gorilla glue to the sections to add more stability and strength to the piece. It takes a little more time to assemble, but it's worth it. I have one of these with glue and one without, and the one that has the glued body sections is much more stable.
