Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't hold up I purchased this for my office 10 days ago, while pulling the top drawer out to file a document, the entire draw came out just missing my feet. Needless to say it is being returned this weekend. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good product!! The white 3 drawer filing cabinet is something between white and off white. The filing cabinet is spacious but it’s top heavy so don’t put anything heavy in the first or second drawer, or it’ll topple over!! I placed a printer on top of it to avoid this. Another thing is when the filing cabinet is locked, it also locks the drawer above so organize it so that the things in the second drawer are rarely needed. Overall, satisfied and happy with the purchase!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive but...... In designing our work space, we were torn between this Bisley file cab and the premium Bisley file cab. Both come in great colors. Needed 3 drawers on a couple of units and 2 drawers on others. The premium allows for full access to files unlike this model which does not open fully extended. However, the premium didn't have a 3 drawer option. The worst part is that you can't mix and match because the height is different and the cabinets are used to support the desktops on one end. I am surprised that a premium retailer like Container Store does not insist on matching heights or at the least offer a solution for this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colorful File Cabinets The Bisley locking file cabinets are a welcome addition to my office, which is a room open to my living room. The green pop of color matches my desk chair and accents well with my living room furniture. The other big plus is these cabinets are sturdy, unlike the flimsy metal cabinets I once owned.

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 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!
Date published: 2016-05-10
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.
Date published: 2016-03-08
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.

Will these support a wooden slab as a desktop?

I just bought these and I'm concerned about how flimsy they are. If I've got hard drives in the drawer and pull it open, they lean forward and almost collapse. Will they support a 200lb slab of wood as a desktop? I'm using the exact combo as pictured above (two file cabinets)
Asked by: ultrabose
I would think weight wise they would hold 200 lb. However, 200 lbs is a long length of wood ... the website I looked at showed about 15' of countertop at 18" wide. That length would give you about a 12' span ... the average kneehole for a desk is about 4'. I would be more concerned with the the wood warping or sagging without a center brace. For that length I would do 2 cabinets on each end. Otherwise I would do a 6' countertop with about a 4' knee hole.

Do the drawers extend all the way? I tried the models in the store and they did not come out like the larger version.

The drawers in the models in the store did not extend enough. There was still about 6in of the drawer that was still inside the cabinet when you pulled the drawer out. I tried the larger cabinet as well and these extended properly so the back panel of the drawer was aligned with front panel of the filing cabinet when extended all the way.
