Overall, the unit is about what I expected. It's not the best quality, but considering how cheap it was, I didn't expect the best. My two major complaints are: 1) It takes FOREVER to put it together! My husband and I spent hours on this thing..The pieces aren't labled, and the instructions are only in pictures (no words in ANY language), and so a lot of guess work is involved. It took the two of us, no kidding, over 3 hours to put this together. My other complaint: 2) the pieces don't all fit together the way they should, ie: the drawers are a bit off, and the middle one tends to catch on either the top or bottom drawer. Also, in order to get one of the drawer bottoms to fit into the frame, I had to saw a piece off of it! I tried and tried to get it together, and finally got fed up and sawed off the offending corner, and then it worked great! I would have liked to put things together a different way, like top-to-bottom, or something to ensure everything fit as you go. Instead, you put all the frames together, then fit in the pieces, and then fit all that together and hope that it works out. It did, for the most part, but there are some annoying kinks.
But, for the price, it's what I expected. When it's put together, especially with the top hutch, it looks good, and it matched the Espresso furniture that I had bought from another retailer. It's functional, and I hope it will be durable enough just to last a couple of years, which would meet my expectations.
