File Cabinets

Lorell 16872 2-Drawer Mobile File Cabinet, I found this incredible light and easy to move around

Pretty good file for very low price. I was between a three and a four rating and wish i could give it a 3. 5 since it’s quite functional and very inexpensive. It is also, however, a very light duty cabinet. If we’re just a tiny bit heavier and a tiny bit wider it would get a four or possibly even a five. The manufacturer has this one scrimped down to the minimum as far as dimensions and metal gauge are concerned but it does indeed work pretty well considering the cost. Some other reviews mention the lock being balky or weak or whatever and i didn’t even try mine. If you need serious security, this isn’t the place to look. Once loaded with a few files, it’s actually more stable but you probably should spend more (a lot more) if you need a cabinet for daily service. For people who just want to organize their household papers and files and who do not work in the cabinet regularly, this is a pretty good solution at a very low price.

I was shocked at the quality of this two drawer file cabinet. It came in one piece, no assembly required except for adding on the wheels and handles. It took all of five minutes to get everything put on and start using it. I was impressed with the cost and quality of the product.

It’s great to have a file cabinet with. It’s great to have a file cabinet with wheels, perfect size for my needs too. Very light, you can pick it up and move it with ease if you need. Highly recommend it, great price too.

“Great cabinet for a great price., Great filing cabinet, Good, Basic File Cabinet”

Works ok – drawers slide on metal frame, not bearings. Suggest the walmart version instead. On this one you get a bit less. The sheet metal is so thin on this cabinet you can bend it like tinfoil. Price was $15 higher than walmart. Live and learnthe drawers are sliding on the metal frame, not bearings. As the draw weight increases as you fill this up with papers, you’ll understand why bearings are what any proper cabinet should use. Buy wd40 to lube up the slides.

The file cabinet is pretty sturdy. The wheels were hard to put on – the directions were confusing. The handles were pretty easy to put on. Other than that, i like the cabinet just fine.

Great cabinet for a great price. . I bought this about a month ago and i use the top drawer for my documents and the bottom drawer to store misc. The drawers are actually pretty deep, which is awesome. I didn’t put the wheels on it, one reason is because i don’t like how it looks and the second reason is because i didn’t need them on there. Assembly is extremely easy, just screw on the handles. I’m extremely satisfied with this product. The negative side of this filing cabinet. There is a gap and my folders like to slide and fall down in the gap (i attached a photo).

Very sturdy, and it really is metal. Very sturdy, and it really is metal. I love the casters, because i can easily move it around if i need to.

These file cabinets are ok, but would not buy this again even at this price, or perhaps i should say especially at this price. I bought two so i would have matching cabinets under a table in my office; not my brightest move. Let me just say if i could have found a better quality online (or even at the local but smallish chain office supply, that i was certain about i would have paid double. The drawers roll out only half to 3/4 and then have to be weighted in the back with something heavy or they tip over (i used two huge dictionary type books). There is nothing to hold folders in place — no slider on the sides or even those metal things that fit in the bottom and stand up sort of like book ends. This means books or some other object needs to be placed after the last folder if you want them to stand upright. The handles and casters come separate. The handles install easily, though beware the screws for them are actually screwed into the handle, so if you’re looking for the pieces in the plastic they come in you may think they’ve been overlooked. The front two casters fit on fairly easily, but the back two are tricky and it’s such a convoluted mess i don’t think i could even describe it.

Arrived in perfect condition. I needed a filing cabinet for all my personal files and i didn’t want to break the bank. This perfectly fit my needs. Metal, locks, two-cabinet, and relatively inexpensive. This cabinet is just for me and it holds so much that i still have more than half of each drawer empty. The metal is not very thick. Also, the lock is not too strong. If i try to pull the drawer while it is locked, about an inch or so will pull out. So, it can easily be broken into or tampered with.

I found this incredible light and easy to move around. For someone that uses a wheelchair, i found this incredible light and easy to move around. I was able to fit all my papers in the top section and use the bottom section for stuff that doesn’t have a home yet. While it was great for me, if you looking for a more secure and stronger file cabinet. Then this is one is not for you, the lock does not work properly and comes undone by pulling on it.

Finally pulled the trigger on this one and i am glad i did. Been wanting a filing cabinet to keep my affairs in order. Now i am married and have to be the one to keep my wife’s affairs in order as well. Finally pulled the trigger on this one and i am glad i did. The only flaw i found in the design is on the rods which hold the hanging file folders. If they get pushed all the way toward the front of the cabinet, the hooks on the folders will fall off the rails. I alleviated this by putting a 1′ thick piece of foam in the front, which keeps the folders nicely in place on the rails. Other than that, nice cabinet. Smooth drawers opening and closing.

Don’t expect this to be a super sturdy piece but it will get the job done. This is your standard metal filing cabinet. I purchased it because it comes with wheels and from past experience trying to move a full filing cabinet without wheels is difficult. Anyway, i gave it a 3 star because the handles came with the wrong screws and i was not able to attach them. I haven’t bothered with the wheels yet until the seller responds to my message to let me know if they can send the appropriate ones. I read another review on here from a year ago where someone had a similar issue. I don’t know how they can overlook this. This would be an inconvenience if i have to go find appropriate screws at a hardware store so either they send the right ones or i’m returning it. Don’t expect this to be a super sturdy piece but it will get the job done in terms of storing files.

Doesn’t hold as much as i expected. . It came without the drawer handles and the wheels installed. The drawer handles were very easy to install. The wheels were not too bad to install, but it did take some force on the screw driver to get the screws in. I had files from a project that were in a clear plastic file box with a lid, but the files had outgrown the box a bit. I thought this two drawer cabinet would work to hold the files and some supplies such as envelopes, etc. I was surprised at how little this file cabinet holds. It does hold the files that were in the file box and the overflow, but it didn’t have enough room then to hold the supplies. It barely held much more than that one clear file box had held.

What you see is what you get here, folks. I got this file cabinet for $55 with free shipping here on amazon. Com and i think it was well worth it. It came quickly and well-packaged. For a single guy, it does what it needs to do with plenty of room. Note that the drawers are sized for 8. 5’x11′ hanging folders and won’t accommodate legal 8. There’s some small assembly required with putting on the drawer handles as well as the casters if you want the cabinet to roll.

So happy it was already assembled. All we had to do was put the handles on which was easy to do took under 10 minutes bought this as a gift for my dad. File folders hang perfect on the already existing rails. Can hold standard papers & file folders (8 1/2 x11) stands about 3 ft tall. Comes with key to lock the middle cabinet. Light weight and easy to move around. Would fit tons of paperwork.

Time will tell if it holds up. .But the first time we pulled the bottom drawer out to put the handle on, the drawer would not shut – finally found a metal rod that had come loose from somewhere in transit and was blocking the drawer from shutting. Have no idea where the rod goes, but we took it out of the way and the drawer shuts. I am sure it provided sturdiness somewhere. Metal is really thin and cheap, but should work if you don’t load them down to the gills with heavy stuff or plan on using it all the time. I paid $25 for a metal roller thing for it to sit on and had actually bought a different filing cabinet from wal-mart that was too lopsided to fit in square. Took it back and ordered this.

Excellent value for the price. . 5 stars because of the value. It’s not built like a $300 file cabinet, but for the price you can’t beat it. Small form factor even with the wheels. (i got it specifically to fit under a table that’s 27. Arrived in perfect conditions with easy-to-follow instructions. Cons:thin metal, which means it wouldn’t be hard to break into.

This was exactly what i expected. Including casters and handles, assembly took maybe 15 minutes. It does exactly what i want it to. The lock isn’t extremely secure, but it fits my needs just fine. Besides, if someone wanted to steal anything, they could just take the whole cabinet anyway. There’s plenty of room for all of my files and then some. A reasonable price for a quality product.

Good size for what i needed. . This cabinet replaced a smaller one which had broken. It is roomy enough and helped relieve a lot of the paperwork clutter i had in my home office. Very happy i decided to purchase it. The only negative i have is that the front of one of the drawers dented very easily.

I was very pleased to receive this file cabinet to replace a very aged one. The list of pro’s for this cabinet are: easy to assemble; drawers open/close with relative ease; no need for internal wire frame as it’s contructed for hanging folders. Also a big plus over my previous cabinet is the protruding handles which provide a good grip to open/close the drawers. My previous cabinet had recessed pulls that my hands would slip out of. The one big negative to the file cabinet is that as a rolling file cabinet, the front wheel rollers do not have locks. Thus everytime i go to open the cabinet, it rolls towards me. Had i noticed this prior to ordering, i would not have ordered this particular cabinet. Lastly, both a positive and negative is that although light weight, the materials used are a bit flimsy thus it is less sturdy than i would prefer. I live out of this cabinet thus i’m opening/closing it constantly.
