I bought this as a printer stand for my den. I looked high and low for a small table and was hoping for a bit of enclosed storage as well – this fit the bill. As other reviewers mentioned, it does take a fair amount of work to put together. But the instructions were easy to follow and i really like the finished product. I’ve purchased other sauder products in the past and this was consistent as far as quality and functionality. Reasonable price and quality for the cost.
It works just fine but was a little difficult to put together. It’s not the sturdiest thing ever, and you have to be careful how you pick it up when you move it. We had some trouble with an exploding wood glue bottle, which was obviously not ideal.
Very difficult to assemble to many small parts not clear instructions.

, Great little cabinet!
I love this product it had great directions was easy to put together and looks great assembled.
It’s a beautiful heavy piece of furniture. However, putting it together was a nightmare. All went well at first until we got to the drawer. There was no way to finish it. the hardware didn’t fit and there were no predrilled holes. If your good at improvising its a great product.
I was surprised by its weight — quite heavy. It is easy to follow the directions and put it together. I’m an ‘old lady’ and i put it together perfectly, with just one little adjustment for the drawer closing. A handsome piece of furniture.
So beautiful especially for the price.
Easy to assemble and very strong and attractive. Does not look like dyi assembly.
This is a study small piece. Perfect for small filing cabinet/nightstand.
Love how it looks and the functionality of it. I will say, my husband said it wasn’t the easiest assemble job he’s ever had.
Very study, and holds all of my files easily.
Even i could follow the directions and put it together.
I did not install the hanging files hardware. Even tho i have this placed where it’s out of the line of traffic, i do not like the sharp corners on the table top. It was packaged very well, no scratches, chips or marks of any kind. Assembles quite easily and well aligned.
Quite sturdy and attractive. I was able to set up in about 15 minutes.
It is a nice piece of furniture which elegantly hides my files. It took me a little while to assemble but the instructions were very simple and everything was well labeled.
They put a lot of thought into this and all the areas that are usually weak (legs and things) are reinforced nicely. The instructions are clear and precise. Overall, very happy with this piece.
This is a real piece of furniture that you could put in any room. It is very attractive and very sturdy. In fact, it is heavy so don’t plan on moving it around a lot. I would give it 5 stars except the file drawer is very small and you cannot pull the drawer all the way out. If you fill the drawer to capacity, you will have to remove the file folders in the front to get to the ones in back. I was able to put it together with relative ease and i am not generally good at this kind of task. The instructions are quite good and the pictures are really helpful. It probably took me about 2. 5 hrs total, but someone with more skill and experience could no doubt do it much quicker.
Not too much trouble setting it up. Good bits of humor in the instruction manual. The drawer had me stumped for a bit. Seems sturdy and the drawer slides nicely.
Time-consuming to assemble and somewhat fragile since it is made of particle board covered with a thin wood grain-like veneer. Once assembled, it seems to be quite sturdy. The finished look is very handsome and the drawer works beautifully.
This file stand is just the right size to fit under my office window, and is very sturdy. I had to get my husband to help get the cabinet onto the base, but otherwise was able to put it together myself. I’ve bought many sauder products over the years, and they’ve always been high quality; they’re easy to assemble, they look good and they last. I recently had a mental lapse and bought a bookcase from another manufacturer and was disappointed. It’s not as sturdy as a sauder product and it just looks cheaper. The instructions for sauder products are very easy to follow, also.
Purchased this a couple weeks ago from amazon. I needed a small table to sit my epson printer on and this was the best choice. The box it came in was really heavy but i got it opened and laid all the pieces out to start the assembly chore. I followed the instruction manual page by page, step by step. It was really quite simple provided one reads it carefully and refer to it often. It was put together in just a few days (i did not attempt to do it in one day). When finished, i was quite pleased at the sturdiness and look. The file drawer is deeper than i had anticipated, a nice feature. So, all in all, after looking for this item now for several months for my printer stand, this worked best. The price was good but i now see amazon is offering it a few dollars cheaper.
It a nice piece of furniture, perfect for my files.
It was a breeze to put together. Great directions with a few funny tidbits to lighten the mood along the way. I read a few reviews that said it was difficult to assemble but that was not my experience. I had it together in 45 mins. (i’m a 56 yr old nana with a new tool bag from my son in law) and the cabinet is nice and sturdy and most important of all the drawer is smooth. Very happy with this $68 file cabinet.
