Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy Cabinet with Good Finish Cabinet is well-built for the most part, but the bottoms of the drawers are rather flimsy. Colored finish is good though. Plenty of space and compact cabinet for its size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great file cabinet I purchased this to be part of a small office in my kitchen overlooking the garden in my new home. I paired it with the melamine top and silver legs and it looks great. I purchased the 3 drawer cabinet but am going to get the 2 drawer cabinet as well. My printer fits perfectly on top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Item! Good sheet music cabinets are becoming more difficult to find these days. The Bisley filing cabinet fills this need in different ways: you can file loose sheet music in hanging folders in the large bottom drawer, and you can pile books in the smaller drawers. The lock above the 3rd drawer seals all 3 drawers. The variety of colors available for these cabinets is a big draw; mine is in Slate Blue. The cabinet isn't inexpensive but is worth its price; I'm currently saving up to get another one since, as seen in the accompanying photo, I need to file away more music books and papers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect filing cabinet I originally loved this because there was a pink one, I was in the Cincinnati store and wanted the 3 drawer one and they didn't have one, so I was going to get a white one, but my thought was I could get a cheaper white filing cabinet back home. So I came home and went to every office supply store and couldn't find a "cute" filing cabinet that wasn't cheesy and locked. Needless to say, 2 weeks later, I ended up ordering the 3 drawer one online and driving an hour and a half back to Cincinnati to get it. I couldn't be happier with it. I'm super cheap and hated to spend $150 on it, but it was worth it. It looks very nice, it comes already assembled and it locks! They also have organizers/dividers in the store to help with storage on the top two drawers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I was a little reluctant at first to order metal filing cabinets to add to my home office, as my cabinets are custom, high end, built ins. I wasn't sure they'd be nice enough! I was pleased to find out that they are actually very nice looking and great quality! They gave me the additional storage I needed without ruining the beauty of the room. I put a table runner across the top of mine to dress them up a little. And they came SO incredibly well packaged, it took a lot to finally get to see the cabinet! There were layers and layers of protection around each one to insure they arrived with no dents, dings, or scratches.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits in closet The main reason I purchased this cabinet is because it is not as deep as most file cabinets but it has enough room for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive and surprisingly capacious I originally bought one each of the 2- and 3-drawer files, and I liked them both so much that I bought an additional 2-drawer file to replace a set of standing files. They're attractive pieces of furniture in addition to their utility, and they're lightweight enough to move around if necessary, but sturdy enough to hold a lot of weight both inside and outside; one of mine is currently serving as a printer stand. Although it's true, as people have noted, that the files can tilt forward when a loaded drawer is pulled all the way out, I've found that bracing them with my knee is an easy fix for the "problem" -- and I put the word in quotes because the "problem" is caused partly by the surprisingly large capacity of the file drawers, which means there's lots of stuff at the back of the drawer, and partly by the smooth and effortless gliding of the drawers as they open and shut. Right now I have all three files in my home office, but I'm thinking they might make elegant living or dining room cabinets as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product Although the file cabinet was on back order and it took a couple of months to get, it was well worth the wait. I love the color its stylish and it looks so much better than your regular ugly everyday office cabinet. It s a little smaller than your average file cabinet but for a home office it does the job. I got the 3 drawer cabinet. For more filing space I would recommend getting both a 2 and 3 drawer. I was extremely impressed with the packaging too. I was nervous about having it delivered since I expected it to be dented or damaged but the container store packed it perfectly and not one scratch!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I purchased two of these file cabinets for my home office. I specifically chose these because they were shallow, so could therefore be hidden in a cabinet, under a console or skirted table. I thought they would be much more versatile than the traditional deep ones. I ordered the white and it is a true, crisp white - no yellow undertones. (Choosing the color was the hardest part ... still thinking of the Navy ...) I've had them for about 2 weeks and the mechanisms seem to work smoothly even fully loaded. There is a lock on each cabinet which came with a key - however, the keys are not interchangeable ... so you must keep both keys handy. Cabinets shipped UPS to me and they were well packaged to prevent damage. I did take one star away because there is no built in leveler. (I had to get creative!) Overall, really happy with the purchase and think they are a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good-looking file cabinet I bought this file cabinet mainly because it's better-looking than most out there. Although I chose black, I loved that there were lots of colors to choose from. And it's sturdy and the drawers operate smoothly. A winner all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size, Color and Functionality I recently bought one 2-drawer and one 3-drawer Bisley file cabinet in slate blue. I was very impressed with the wrapping materials they were delivered in, which were very secure and solid but surprisingly easy to break down and dispose of. The cabinets are being used in my dining room/office so I wanted something colorful instead of a typical institutional beige or black. I do love the color, but it has some green in it which to me does not constitute slate blue. I thought it would be more of a blue-gray like in the online photo but it's kind of a blue-green gray. Still it's a nice color and it works. The cabinets are high-quality and sturdy and sit directly on the floor - no wheels. I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Really Like it Great purchase-expensive for me even with a 15% discount from past purchases but I consider this Bisley file- well worth it. The green fits well in the living room with Mission and retro modern and it's a sigh of relief to organize files in a good looking,sturdy cabinet with easy moving drawers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice file cabinet I like the color of the graphite file cabinet. I got it full right away. I may buy another so as to have some moveable space between the files. A longer length would have worked better. I'm keeping it though. More so because of tit's style fitting into the home office, but a longer depth would have been preferable. Maybe I'm keeping too much paper? Nah..., it's all needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilled With Purchase This product is well built and great value for the money. Other reviewers have talked about the poor build quality. That has not been my experience at all. And some have said that there is not a lot of drawer space. The cabinet is only 18" deep so that has to be kept in mind, but with the drawer fully open I can reach right to the back to pull the files forward ... you just can't pack the cabinet full to crammed, You cut your fingers and get cranky when it is like that and can't put things in files ... get a second one if that is the case or weed out some files! Shipping was convenient, package arrived safely and undamaged. Great experience. Overall very, very pleased with the product ... love the colours that are available too! Would definitely purchase this product again if I needed another.

Date published: 2015-04-06
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh I agree with many of the negative comments on here. The drawers do not extend all the way out making it an unnecessary hassle to get any folders in the back of the cabinet. That should be an easy fix for the company since so many have complained about that feature on here for so long. It's not that sturdy-kind of a blessing & a curse situation-lightweight but it comes off as cheap, which it shouldn't at a $100+ price point. I was told specifically in the store that this cabinet can NOT be tipped on its side (in order to fit into a car to get it home), as that may cause they drawers to jam/lock. I mean, seriously? There's really no fix for that, Bisley? I was replacing an older file cabinet and, my fault, didn't compare the depths to each other. This cabinet is 3" shorter in depth and that's a lot of real estate to lose (times 2).
Date published: 2015-03-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite as nice as I expected I like it and I'm keeping it but I was a little disappointed with the quality. Much lighter weight than expected and some of the seams aren't perfect. The bottom drawer doesn't slide very nice and it tips over fairly easily when opening the drawers. They mistakenly gave me the premium Bisley cabinet (the one that cost over $100 more) and the quality of that one was much, much better. It didn't tip with drawers open and much heavier construction overall. Drawers opened much more smoothly. But it was a lot bigger and had a black toe-kick area that I didn't care for so I returned it for the one I had ordered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good looking cabinets These are a little lighter weight than I expected (once it was out of the box I could move it myself) and the drawers don't pull out all the way, but they are very nice looking and work smoothly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh Green color is okay, not quite as vibrant as I had hoped for when ordering them. I waited months to get these two matching Bisley file cabinets. When they finally arrived they looked ok, but the drawers would make a loud popping noise when you tried to open or close them. The drawers were also very hard to open and close. Extremely flimsy construction, no bottom, so they don't sit even. Not all that impressed. Bummer.

Can you add casters to these?

Asked by: DALA
You would probably need to add a base since the bottom is hollow. I wanted to add casters, but ended up just using small stick on furniture slides.

Does the key lock on the bottom drawer lock all three drawers?

No, the bottom drawer locks to the middle drawer. If you pull on the bottomed drawer, you can reach into the middle one. I returned mine and when somewhere resale to get one where all three lock.

can you stack two of these cabinets one on top of the other?

Asked by: ninak
You could....I mean they are yours ... but they are not meant to be stacked. And I would think they would be a serious tipping hazard. As they do tend to tip forward when the drawers are open.

locking capabilities

It seems as though there are mixed answers with regards to how the locking mechanism works. Does the lock control all the drawers or just the one with the lock? In other words, does only the bottom drawer lock while the others do not, or if the bottom drawer is locked, then all the others are as well? Thanks!
Asked by: llh84
The one lock at the bottom locks all drawers.
