Buying pre-assembled was well worth it. Only had to add the casters upon arrival and it was ready to use. Spacious drawers allow for great storage behind files. The rich color blends with my dark cherry furniture very well. Great price on sale but don't know if I would have payed the original purchase price.
I would by this product again. These file cabinets (3ea) will help me to organize my personal files in the order that I need them. The file cabinets blend very nicely with my desk and chair because the wood color is an exact match. The first cabinet was difficult to assemble because the parts arrived unmarked, but with the help of the included assembly manual I managed to assemble all three.
I'll continue buying this product. Matches my other office furniture. Wheels provide very good mobility, especially when cleaning. Drawer sliders are the best in the market. File capacity is very good. Difficult to assemble due to parts not being marked at the factory, but after careful examination of all components, I was able to assemble the cabinet in a reasonable amount of time, even dough I'm a crippled person.
Being an essential part of most offices doesn't mean that they need to be functional and boring, amply demonstrated in the stylish and attractive range of high quality furniture items presented here. Well designed, yes, but they serve their purpose too!
