Original Home Office&#8482 2-Drawer File Cabinet is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly pleased. The file cabinet is perfect for the area where it sits, and, the price very reasonable. Ordering was simple and delivery prompt. I love Ballard Designs!

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 This product is good quality and price I am very pleased with the 2-Drawer File Cabinet. It is very well constructed with a beautiful finish and the price was great for a product of this quality. It looks great in my office.

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 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 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value for Money I received my desk very quickly after purchase online. The desk was pre-assembled which is a pleasant surprise nowdays. Made in China (as nearly everthing is these days) but I am very pleased with the fit, finish and quality for the price paid. I only wish the backside of the file cabinet were finished instead of particle board as my application requires me to have it exposed. Hence, I did not use the wall attachment as recommended. No problems with tipping so far.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Top I ordered 2 pieces and a 3 piece credenza. The credenza came with a top, but the 2 separate pieces do not. You have to pay 79.00 for a top, so if you want a top, it would be better to order a two piece credenza instead of 2 separate pieces. This was not explained to me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Office Files Like the quality, finish and design. However, I purchased 3 and one arrived with 3 obvious indentations in the top surface. We were unaware of the damage until we had moved them (still in packaging) to the second floor office.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great cabinets. wish they would be made with back panel "finished" so that one could achieve a professional "look" in a U or C shaped configuration. I bought 4 cabinets and subsequently bough the desk tops to go on them. The cabinets are just beautiful and very well made. The only complaint i have is that the back panel of the file cabs are NOT "finished." The back is merely a pressboard finish with the screws showing. This is NOT a professional "look" given the many configurations (like C shape or U shape desks) for the OHO products shown on the website (which is VERY VERY helpful in planning the office, especially for odd shaped rooms. very detailed and great info!). I highly recommend BD corrects this deficiency or states in the catalog and web that the backs are unfinished.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed in unfinished quality I purchased many cabinets to complete my home office. I was very disappointed to discover that none of the cabinets have a finished back. In the PDF guide there is an example of the standard desk facing two chairs, this would leave chairs looking at an unfinished back. Certainly not the quality I've come to expect with BD.
