Original Home Office&#8482 2-Drawer File Cabinet is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what l needed. I ordered this cabinet primarily because of it's size. I needed something to place my computer printer on that would fit beside a new desk, in limited space. I was pleasantly surprised that it is so well made and looks more expensive than it is. The drawer, which was a bonus to me, is large enough to hold a ream of paper and my spare ink cartridges. The shelves hold my in /out baskets nicely. I am well pleased with both the fast service of Ballard in shipping this item, and the quality of the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my Tucsan Desk, the Color and Style. I am enjoying using my new Tucsan Desk. Ballard Sales Personnel were very accommodating and pleasant to work with. Although there was a slight flaw on one piece, Ballard Customer Service was also very accommodating and I received a new piece within days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This file cabinet is perfect!! I was searching for a file cabinet for weeks, and the one I found at Ballard Designs is PERFECT for my needs. I LOVE the 2 drawer space for office supplies and the one file drawer is all I needed for files. The wood color matches my other furniture I already had in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just took the back panel off! I hesitated to buy this cabinet for my desktop based on the review about the overheating worry because I am also one to leave my PC on ALL THE TIME. Luckily I already owned the filing cabinets that are part of this collection and knew I could easily remove the back panel of the cabinet. This provided plenty of ventilation, as well as easier access to the cords in the back, and since it is against a wall as part of a corner unit, I don't see any of the mess!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely and efficient home office Ordered two of the file cabinets, and work surface in grey. As with all the other products I have ordered from BD, it arrived much faster than I had expected. Also ordered the BD hutch and had my sweet husband anchor it to the wall like a cabinet. (I didn't want to waste the desk work surface, and we have very limited space. ) Am absolutley thrilled with the way it completed our little study. Very quality construction- am extremely pleased

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-made, attractive product I love these file cabinets! They are durable, attractive, and strong. I bought four of them--two of the two-drawer cabinets and two of the single drawer cabinets--to support a custom desktop made of reclaimed wood. The result is absolutely beautiful! The desktop is very long (162" total length) and spans one entire length of my study; made of aged oak, it is VERY heavy. I spaced the four cabinets equally under the desktop, and they support it very well, with ample legroom. I bought the black cabinets, and the aged brass hardware coordinates beautifully with the old wood. I am delighted with this product and recommend it strongly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my NEW home office! Designed a home office / guest bedroom combination using several units of the "Original Home Office" system in Tuscan Brown. Quality is very good and appearance is very rich and warm. Have received lots of compliments from family and friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was perfect for what I was looking for. I was looking for an "elegant/professional" filing cabinet and I found it here at BD. It has some weight to it also so there is no tipping when a drawer is opened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! We purchased a 3-Drawer file cabinet and a 2-Drawer file cabinet in white and use them as bases for an office desktop. They look beautiful, are good quality, and the best part is that they came completely assembled. So easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Original Home Office pieces were a great purchase. The versatility of these pieces is amazing. You can created functional office space in any space. I combined 7 individual cabinets with 2 desktops and a corner desk and now have a home office that is now a pleasure in which to work. The pieces are sturdy and well constructed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the whole collection! I bought this in 2006 - 8 file cabinets, a desk top, and the hutch - in Tuscan Brown. It is sturdy, gorgeous, and I get tons of compliments. You can't go wrong with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Function Blended With Great Style! The file cabinets arrived in perfect condition . The stain was even with great quality wood. I had Glass special cut to create a great looking desk. The two smaller drawers provide great storage for office items while the ample file area keeps everything in its place. Well Done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't have to build it! I liked this filing cabinet -- it's well built (it was delivered assembled, which rocked my world) and it looks nice too. So many of the other cabinets that I looked at were cheaply made (for instance, one had drawers with a cardboard backing), but this one is not. I also appreciate that they have a whole office line that matches the cabinet so I can buy additional pieces without worrying about it looking mis-matched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely wonderful! I was pleasantly surprised when I received my Tuscan Brown 3-drawer file cabinet. The quality is great and it coordinates nicely with other pieces in the room. I plan to purchase several more pieces and a work surface to create a wall unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, efficient unit I use this as one of the bases for my desk. It's pretty good quality - rolls smoothly, etc. I do wish it were a bit deeper - maybe 24" instead of 19" - because I have a fairly wide desk for architectural drawings. I had to use the plinth base and small additional risers to make my desk a more comfortable height.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product suits all my needs Great piece of furniture, as well as very useful. The drawers are a perfect size for files as well as other office essentials.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, just short of great You can read a description a million times but until the thing sits in your home you don't get the whole picture. I waited a few months to receive the two file cabinets and the one four-drawer cabinet - there must have been three or four manufacturing or delivery delays. The looks cannot be beat and I knew they'd look great in my office, which they do. The pros are: looks, quality, price. The cons: drawer depth of the four-drawer cabinet is insufficient for my needs - it measures about 13" (the cabinet depth measurement is about 18") and the drawer pulls are difficult and uncomfortable to use - the drawers offer a lot of resistance and the pulls cut into my fingers. Am hoping that with time and use, drawers will open a bit more easily. Will probably expand to a few more units and as I said, they look terrific.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, with one issue A nice built-in looking option for our house. Hanging folders (which have metal hangers) dig into the plastic slide rails. After some use (ours are 3-years old) the folders don't slide easily- they catch and drag along the rails. I'll try waxing them up to see if that solves the problem. If not, I'll search for a metal replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gray is very green/gray I really liked this product but the gray is very greenish. If you're into gray, like me, you know how many grays there are. This one was too green for my decor so I returned for the white and I'll just distress them myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice cabinet! Love this collection and the file cabinet in particular. It's solid and has lots of room for files. Isn't that the point??? Also love that the cabinets are assembled when received. I am, however, disappointed with the backs of the cabinets not being more finished. I use my desk as a freestanding unit with the backs exposed and they don't look quite right. Could you please consider developing an add-on back panel for those of us who use the collection in a freestanding environment? I would also add a locking mechanism to the cabinet. Just that finishing touch to make it just right. Thank you!
