Good Product :)
Michelle from Philadelphia, PA – Verified Buyer
I just got this (2 of the tall dressers, and 1 of the 8-drawer short dresser) for my husband and I. The assembly was pretty easy and didn't take too too long. Use a drill with a phillip's head drill bit to speed up the process, instead of just using the screwdriver. Do not loose any of the screws, because there are no extras. The dressers are very sturdy, and pretty heavy, which I liked because it tells me that it is not a cheap product, even though the prices are really really good. The one thing I do not like is that the drawer pull handles are plastic and are super cheapy looking. If you want nice drawer pulls, you will have to shell out the extra $$ and buy them from another store. For right now, I'm just going to keep them, and keep my eye open for pulls that are on sale/clearance. Also, the actual drawers are not very big. They are shorter, by length and height, compared to most other dressers. I was happy that I bought three dressers, b/c just the two tall dressers would not have been enough space for my husband and I to fit all of our clothes that are not hanging in the closet. I would recommend this product and would purchase more from this supplier!
Not good for day-to-day use.
Anonymous from Georgia
In my opinion this furniture is great for a guest room, which is what we intended it for, but it would not hold up well to day-to-day use. You definitely get what you pay for. Don't set your expectations too high. Assembly is quite the project. The dresser was not well packaged at all and the top was cracked. I called the manufacturer and they replaced the piece with no problem, but I got the feeling this happens quite often.
Do Not Buy This Dresser!
Islander from Tilghman Island, MD
I bought this dresser to use in a walk-in closet that Iâ€™m organizing. I selected it because the dimensions were right for this purpose and the price was moderate. However, this junk gives a whole new meaning to the word â€œcheap.â€ 1. I expected the laminated particle board to be â€œlaminate.â€ Silly me. This stuff is a paper cover glued over compressed sawdust. The top, bottom and drawer fronts (1/2 inch thick) are made of it. The inside of the drawer fronts are not finished at all. Picture clothes snagging on it. The dresser top in the box I received was cracked and the legs of one side were not â€œstapledâ€ properly, so it is not a snug fit.2. There is no bead board to be found. The dresser sides and drawer backs and sides are made of 3/16-inch thick masonite -- thatâ€™s less than a quarter inch. The drawer bottoms are a whole 2/16 of an inch. Wow! That might just support two or three sheets of paper.3. The â€œeasy glideâ€ drawer slides are strips of the 3/16-in. masonite stapled to the sides made of 3/16-in. masonite. The bottom drawer sits on the paper-covered sawdust bottom frame.4. The â€œsolid metal cupâ€ handles are really, really cheap plastic.If I saw this piece of trash in a store, I wouldnâ€™t even have considered it. I was going to return it, but it will cost me [$]to do so. So I will assemble it with much reinforcement added and use it in the attic. It was a very expensive mistake.
Eight dresser drawer eview.
J.D. from OH – Verified Buyer
The dresser met my expectations. It was a decent value for the cost.Color and grain looks good for artificial wood. It's use would increase if drawers were 2 or 3 inches deeper. Unit is fairly sturdy, given the average quality of the construction. However, it would not withstand the rough and tumble play activities that occur in a child's room. I would recommend it to a friend along with my concerns. For long wear, best suited for adult use.
Eight Drawer Dresser
Fred from East Stroudsburg, PA – Verified Buyer
It is an average quality dresser; I am using it in a guest room so it suffices. The directions were unclear about assembling the sides to the top. If you make a mistake, it would be impracticable to disassemble and reassemble because of the use of glue. The directions need to state how the sides must be facing during assembly. The dresser is solid and a good size with eight drawers it can hold a lot of clothes. It fits nicely along the wall and does not take up too much room. It also has a nice color and smooth top.
More Work Than Anticipated
Donnice from Carmel, IN – Verified Buyer
The dresser looks nice and is pretty sturdy once everything is put together. I had no idea there were so many pieces. I thought it would be a few large boards to put together, then fitly place the drawers inside and that would be it. Literally, everything had to be put together: the drawers, the back boards, the side frames, the bottom board, and the top. The veneer layer on top board is very thin and easy to chip, so I had to replace it. The company shipped me out another one at no additional price, which was very good. Overall, I am satisfied with the finish product. If I had to do it all over again, I would pay the extra money and buy a dresser that is already put together.
Looks nice, I wish it had better drawer slides.
Jennifer from St Louis, MO – Verified Buyer
The drawer slides are the biggest drawback for this piece. There really aren't any, just slats of wood on the inside of the dresser. For the price it looks great on the outside. Drawer handles are plastic though- not something that really bothers me. This is for a guest room and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. It is sturdy and will do it's job well enough. Easy to put together for someone with some experience.
Angela from Festus, MO – Verified Buyer
Shipping was timely. Only damage upon opening the box is a small nick in the corner nothing I was fully concerned about. Over all look is very nice and the price for as many drawers as you get is the best deal I could find. Only thing I wasn’t to fond of was the drawers don’t have a track to slide into with any metal its just wood slots that you slide them into. As well as the holes are not drilled through so I would recommend a power drill to assemble. Its very sturdy we have it holding our 50 inch tv as well as utilizing the drawer space. All in all I would recommend this piece.
Bear3294 from Virginia – Verified Buyer
The assembly was somewhat time consuming and the hardware is fairly cheap, however for the price its very a decent dresser. It was smaller then I thought, but it actually fit a lot of clothes. I'm happy to support an American brand, just wish the hardware was a bit more sturdy and better quality. Oh another thing, it chips easily so be careful moving it around.
Nice lookingbut a bit of a headache to construct
Kathryn from San Diego, CA – Verified Buyer
Nice looking once completed. The handles are cheap looking but are easy to change out. It will take two people or someone handy to put it together and the tools they provide do not suffice. Finish product is durable and does not look cheap
