Hirsh Industries 2 Drawer Steel File Cabinet in : Not very sturdy. Product pieces dent easily

Mostly happy with this cabinet. All hardware was supplied, everything lined up and it wasn’t damaged in shipping. The wheels seem to roll just fine, but i do wish it were a bit more sturdy for the price.

I would highly recomend this to anyone. I had difficult with the wheels but i had a friend that helped out. I will give this cabinet a 5 star rating. It is light and easy to move to clean behind it. I love the color it goes well with my contour of my living room. If i would ever need another one i would get another one like this one.

I have bought 2 of these files–one after the other. The first one went together like a breeze with some help from my husband. The second one was a small nightmare to put together. The screws for attaching the casters did not fit the holes that were pre-drilled. So we went to a hardware store and bought smaller screws. Still, my husband had to use his power drill to enlarge one of the holes to get the screw to fit. Now we have two satisfactorily functioning file cabinets.

Just the right size and i am happy with this file cabinet.

Takes care of all my files, love it.

Hirsh Industries 2 Drawer Steel File Cabinet in White : So far this seems like a great product for the price. I just received it today, and attached the casters and drawer pulls. The screws for the casters were a tight fit and i could not get them in with just a screwdriver, but an electric drill with screwdriver attachment worked great. As another reviewer mentioned, there is a ledge around the bottom of the drawers. I tested out a few hanging files, but i have not filled up the drawers yet. It seems as long as you are careful to set them in straight, the folders hang down and fit neatly between the ledges. This cabinet is lightweight and the white color looks nice. It rolls around fine on the casters while empty, i haven’t tried it yet when filled and heavy.

What i expected and pleased. A little more effort getting wheels in. Had to find screws in my stash that were a better size.

The only thing that could be better is it should have a stopper at the front inside so file folders don’t fall off. I’ll just adhere the metal rod off a file folders to the very front,should fix that little problem.

Sturdy, easy to assemble, and drawers slide effortlessly.

I ordered 2 cabinets for my husband. They are perfect for his files. He just needs to get casters so they don’t roll. It’s great that they have wheels so the floor doesn’t get rust marks. We have them on our sun porch and they don’t look like the usual business color. They fit right in with porch furniture.

The color is nice, an off white. They are very thin and not extremely sturdy but you can’t beat the quality for the price.

This seems like a decent lightweight little filing cabinet. I gave it 4 stars because there are sharp little screws that connect the wheels to the bottom underneath the cabinet. They punch through the bottom to secure the wheels, but are exposed pointing up towards the bottom drawer. It’s not a place where they would ordinarily be dangerous in normal everyday use, but if someone were to grab underneath the edge of the cabinet to pick it up and move it, it could be a very sharp surprise. I do like that it has the plastic wheels to make it more portable and lift if up to prevent rusting on the carpet as sometimes happens with metal cabinets.

Just what i needed with rollers.

When a product is straightforward–it deserves a straightforward review. This file cabinet is cheap only in price–i couldn’t be happier with the quality and functionality.

Looks great, easy to assemble. Maybe one of these days i’ll actually pick up the papers that are scattered all over the computer room and file them.

Doesn’t allow for legal files. If your looking for a cheap way to organize this is great. If you want something sturdy this is not it.

Much nicer than i thought it would be. It rolls easily on the wheels, which are very easy to attach. The drawers slide very easily which surprised me for a low-cost filing cabinet. It is not as cream-colored as the picture, it definitely looks more like white, but not a brilliant white. I have one suggestion for the manufacturer. Correct the hanging folder bars on the top drawer. As they are now, the hanging folders in the front get hung up at the very front of the cabinet in a very difficult to move. I simply took some masking tape and taped the front of the bars from the front of the cabinet to about 1/2 inch down. This seems to stop the problem. Other than that a nicely made cabinet.

I bought 2 of these, arrived on time, not damaged. Just a few minutes to attach casters.

I am a writer – and before having this filing cabinet – i had stacks of my work lying around everyplace. Now, it is all neat and tidy and alphabetized.

It is not easy assembling for me , i asked contractor to do it for me when he came to repair our house. The material are very thin but work it out very well and a reasonable price and delivery fast.

The cabinet is what i wished to buy for filing bills and medical information for short term reference. If you are using the filing cabinet for higher volume usage, you bight be better served with a heavier construction file. Minor assembly is needed to attach the drawer handles and wheels. Note: the drawer keys are attached too the inside of the lock hardware.

Dislikes = 0 first and foremost it fit under my desk with rollers attached making it more than what i desired. My need was to store all my records within reach. May be my best purchase all year.
