Pros

There are of course seven different colors from which to choose for this item, and all of them look very pretty. For people with a lower budget such as college students or single parents, this item is great when you want to have something that looks expensive in taste and looks a certain way but at a budget price. It generally arrives when it says it will, and most customers will be able to put it together with little or no help at all.

This is the dresser for you if you are the type of person who searches online and in stores for countless hours trying to find a decently-priced furniture item for your home. It is great for use around kids as well, since it is sturdy. Based on overall reviews, this item is really a top-performer. Very sturdy, all the exteriors are solid wood and just the sides/bottoms of the drawers along with the back are wood composite and thick cardboard. The bottoms of the drawers have a piece of wood to keep them from sagging over time and there are so many screws to put this together that you needn’t worry that it will fall apart. The drawer glides work great too, and all of the drawer glides already come mounted on the pieces so there are no issues with any of those not matching up.

This is perhaps the best designed and sturdiest put-it-together product you will ever purchase and assemble. The clearly written and illustrated instructions are easy to follow, and the item requires the use of bolts and screws that fit perfectly in the pre-drilled holes that the product comes with. Even the heavy cardboard back pieces are attached with 14 screws instead of the usual nails. The metal drawer glides are also assembled on the side drawer pieces that make assembly of the drawers quick and easy using only five screws, and they fit into the solid and beautiful case perfectly.

The center wood support under the drawer bottoms and the wood construction should give years of use. One customer stated that the 2-day delivery promise seemed overly optimistic for a Boston company to get something as far as the other end of the country in so short an amount of time, but with just about 90 minutes left for the order to be delivered, it was shipped on time. The overall pros are beauty, quality of materials and finish, and sturdiness and ease of assembly.

Cons

On the flipside of things, various customers had a number of different complaints against this product. They generally agreed that, overall, the product was pretty good, but some people had issues with drawers that didn’t slide well at all. This meant that children are left unable to operate those specific drawers themselves, making the whole dresser pretty worthless to the parent.

Others said similar things: that this seems to be nice from the pictures that are online, but issues such as no instructions with the shipment, and the wrong hardware pack being delivered were not uncommon. It should also be noted that there are often issues that come up due to delivery damage, and not because of any issue with the product in or of itself. Sometimes parts are broken right out of the box, and it can happen that customer service contact numbers don’t always work. The doors may also be dinged, so although the dresser looks good, this type of product should really be packaged better to avoid damage during shipment.

Finally, the bottom line is that this dresser is actually very good but only if the parts are all correct all of the time. Various people complained of things like one drawer being drilled incorrectly, and even the replacement part that was delivered after a complaint to customer service was also incorrectly drilled. The pros include cost and ease of assembly, but the cons here are poor quality control.

Conclusion

The bottom line for this item is that it looks very nice, it comes at a decent price, it is increasingly popular with a lot of different people, and it comes in a wide range of color options. It is a sturdy furniture item that has the space, ease of assembly, quality of finish, speed of delivery, and overall looks that you would want and expect in a mid-range dresser solution for your home.
