i've been looking for a nice sized home office file cabinet for weeks now and I happened to come across this one. I was on the fence but while I was looking into it, someone posted saying how great it was so I decided to get it. I am so happy I did! Not only is it really attractive, but it's solid. The color is a really nice dark grey and I was really impressed with the quality. I usually do not shop at Walmart because of that but I am truly happy with my purchase. On the down side, it can't be found in stores so in the off chance its defective you have to take it back (mine was not and the set comes w all extras pieces). Also, it is truly a pain to put together. It took a combined effort of compitient people (one who builds furniture for a living) almost 3 hours! The whole thing needs to be built, the body too. It all can be done by hand so if you don't have a drill don't worry. One bonus: it has adjustible width file rails for normal or legal size. I love it!
I bought this file cabinet because I wanted something that would fit into a small space and keep my papers organized. This desk fit my needs perfectly. The look of the desk for the price can't be beat. My only complaint is the time it took to put it together. Before you start, make sure you have a couple of hours. If it's a day you're in a hurry, DON'T start, wait until you have the time. It took me a few hours just to put the top drawer together. Plus, it took me approximately 3 days to put the rest of it together because it was such a slow processs. Don't get me wrong, I love the cabinet, just not the length of time it took me to put it together. One other note, you will have to get a "hanging file folder frame" (got mine from staples) to accommodate standard size folders which fit 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper. Get the one that fits 14"-18". A bigger file folder frame will not fit. I didn't realize this until I put the cabinet together. Overall, I am happy with this purchase, but this is just some FYI.
This product looks beautiful when finished, however... putting it together was RIDICULOUS! Power tools a MUST!! Also, step one there were no holes drilled to complete the step. Step two the pre-drilled holes were WAY off, and things continued to get worse from here. The bar in the bottom drawer that the hanging file holders are supposed to hang from, one bar is extremely warped and the other won't stay in because they drilled the holes wrong, making this product useless as a file cabinet! Don't waste your time on this file cabinet, physically go to a store and buy a model that is already put together!!!
This file cabinet is perfect for my small work space. It fits under my desk which makes it very accesible while I'm working however it's attractive enough to use as a stand alone piece of furniture. It's very well built. The drawers slide smoothly and the bottom rollers make it easy to move even on carpet. My only complaints are that it took half a day to assemble and the tools that were provided are useless. You really need a power drill/driver to assemble it. Also, even though I followed the assembly instruction exactly, I have not been able to get the lock to work. Overall, it's a very nice file cabinet.
The product is much more attractive than a metal file cabinet, and the assembly instructions were very good. The quality of the assembled product isn't as good as I had hoped -- the drawers don't slide very smoothly. It had a flaw in one of the pieces where the pressed wood was split, but it was in a place where I could glue and clamp it, and the assembly wasn't affected.
This file cabinet is nice enough to use as a living room sofa end table. I bought 2. The glass makes it modern looking. The charcoal finish is very close to black. I love the extra area under the glass for storage like remote control, portable phone, eyeglasses, etc. The top drawer is pretty deep and can store alot. Bottom file drawer is letter size with supplied letter size hangers. Legal size hangers are not supplied for front to back legal size folders. Legal folders, front to back, may be hard to get the folders out because the drawer does not extend all the way out. I would have given it 5 stars, but using the predrilled holes, the drawer positions did not come out perfectly straight. You have to tweek the drawer slides to have the drawers line up correctly. The directions for the u shaped hardware that locks the bottom drawer was missing from instuctions. One cabinet took 3 hrs. without help from anyone. There is a matching desk that you can purchase. Wish it would hold the weight of a flat screen tv and I would buy that too. Other high end merchants carry this table but for more money than Walmart $79 plus tax. It's a great purchase, and I'm very happy after about 2 weeks using it.
I bought this to pair with a Techni Mobili desk. This was much cheaper than either Amazon or eBay. It was pretty easy to put together, but you'll want an electric screwdriver (not a heavy duty one or you'll damage it) and a soft mallet (not a hammer). Assembly time about 75 minutes. The lock is more decorative than functional.
It took a bit to put together, but well worth it in the end. It has exceeded my
expectations. It is very durable and extremely sturdy. The top glass shelf adds
a perfect space for printer, and extras under it. I would recommend this item to
everyone looking for a small filing cabinet....well worth to money....and cheaper
than everywhere else!
Poor illustrations on directions. Parts do not align so with each step alignment problems are increased.
I had to return.
I have put together items before with no problems.
I purchased this to sit next to a desk I purchased from the same company. Is a great piece, good looking, sturdy. Took a bit longer to put together but have to build the drawers and install runners for them. Glass top. Fine Looking and well made, locking drawers a little tricky with the lock but not enough to fuss about. Have to say this company that makes is top notch in my book. Will continue to purchase from them in the future.
The assembly was not difficult but it was tedious. Took me about 1 1/2 hours to get it together to my satisfaction. The drawers slide easily and the appearance is good.
This completely came apart and unbolted after everything was assembled! I've assembled many pieces of furniture around the house so I'm quite competent in doing this and I even followed the instructions without any problems, but the quality of the wood was so poor that the sides came undone once finished. I read other reviews where it was mentioned that assembly took quite a long time and I would have to agree....it took me a ridiculous 4 hours (even having assembled many pieces of furniture in the past). The back was very flimsy and the material was not at all durable. The locking mechanism also only worked for the top drawer when it was supposed to work for both drawers. The only pro was that the end product did look great, but since there were far more cons it wasn't worth keeping it. I will be searching for another file cabinet that will suit my needs. Happy holidays!!!!
Assemble and Impossible are the same words for this beast. The instructions are Horrible and this comes in 1000 pieces... IF you buy this be prepared for a 6 hour assemble, I thought IKEA was bad but THIS tops Ikea! Plus the "prebuilt" holes do not line up and they give you a screwdriver that a 4 year old could use... Obviously NOT a great idea here, take it from me! I am still waiting for the "assembly help" team to call back...
In buying this? I say: JUST SAY NO!
these cabinets are factory defects. the file drawers are not deep enough to hold files. The Set-Up is very very difficult. invested a day and a half assembling and I'm a builder. regular people have no chance.
I bought this cabinet online and picked it up at my local wall-mart, to my surprise it's not already assembled. It took me a long time to put together plus its not very high quality materals. The "graphite" is basically a thin sticker they put over wood, over all its a cabinet that matches my computer room but didnt match my expectations. Its not worth the trouble but now that I finally put it together its not worth taking it apart and getting my money back.
It only took my husband a hour and a half to put this together and it looks simply beautiful, better than expected in fact! It is a beautiful addition to our office and a well made piece of furniture!
It was quite a science project to assemble but it is sturdy and the wheels make it very easy to maneuver.
I am very impressed with the quality and design. This is a great buy compared to other styles. I would highly recommend this.
Nice good looking cabinet, it took a while longer to assembly, but at the end look great! I am Happy with this purchase, and recommended to any one!
I have to give this file cabinet 5 Stars for quality and ease of assembly.
No problem with assembling this puppy.
As other reviews stated it looks better than expected.
I had a small problem with the locking mechanism at first, (the bottom drawer wouldn't lock), but I was able to 'cure' it by simply lowering the catch at the side of the drawer.
I had another small problem with some drag on the top drawer. The lock fitting on page 4, #23C of the Assembly Instructions was too close to the side of the drawer. I ground off about an eighth of an inch and viola, the drawer opens and closes smoothly.
All in all I'd say this was a good purchase and one you should consider.
