I would never, and I repeat NEVER purchase this dresser ever again. I bought it two weeks ago and I have been continuously struggling to reinforce parts that are falling apart.
It has never fit together correctly, the screws don't fit where they are supposed to, and the easy fit system is a joke.
Please please save your money and do not purchase anything by this company. It looks nice in the display area but it is a HUGE waste of money and time.

it is heavy
i found it easy to put together. just follow the pic's.
It is a 2 person job though, because it is very heavy.
I only had 2 problems with it though
1. the screws stripped easy
2. had to add WD40 to the gliders
but i love that there is a middle support for the drawers, so you don't get the sagging in the centre.
over all i love the dresser

Don't waste your money
One word "JUNK" I would not ever recommend these to anyone. I have bought less expensive furniture before, and had no troubles, but these are the cheapest thing I have ever put together, the pressed wood is hollow in places and would not hold the fasteners, and the drawers are impossible to put in straight. Do NOT Buy.

It Does The Job
Took me 2 hours to put together, then again it was the first piece of furniture ive ever put together. Once its together its a good looking product, but putting it together was a headache, and was afraid things would break because the wood was rather thin and cheap. Now that its together, im happy with it.

An Assembly Nightmare
Took forever to put together, marked it up because the assembly was so awkward, and still the drawers don't fit right. I'm taking it apart now to bring it back to the store since I can't use it. Dud.

Purchased on sale :)
Easy to put together, although it took quite a while - no problems with chipping or fasteners or pieces that did not fit properly.
No scratches. Looks good. May put new knobs on it, the ones that come with it look okay, but are plastic that I don`t care much for.

Put aside lots of time for assembly
Looked good in photo and looks good when assembled, but it wasn't the easiest piece of furniture I've put together. The instructions are OK and the parts are well identified. It's the awkward assembly. Right down to getting the drawers to slide in properly. I'm not sure it was worth the effort.
Good luck with yours.

Could Have Been Great, Only Good
I agree with what the other Reviewer, LocalJoe says. I knew particle board was cheap, I didn't know there was a cheaper version of it. This item is made of really cheap wood product, using more glue than wood shavings, I think. What that means is that as you screw into it, it tends to crumble, rather than let the screws screw in solidly. I had several screws that, once in all the way, just turned around and didn't tighten. Some of the cams either went in too far or not far enough, and although I was really careful and assembled it on a towel, some of the finish chipped even before it was finished. The size of the unit is misleading, especially the drawers!! Here are the dimensions, the unit is 15 1/2 inches D but the drawers are only 14 inches D so you lose space there. The drawer fronts are fully 9 inches high each, but, stupidly, the sides and rear of the drawers are only 4 5/8 inches high!!! There is 1 1/2 inches of wasted space under the bottom of the drawer and 2 3/4 inches of open space with no sides from the top of the drawer front down to the top of the drawer side. So the drawer sides are very low, you can't put much in unless it will stay without sliding over the sides. Why waste all that room anyway - these drawers could have been great if the sides and back were almost the same height as the drawer fronts. The handles are plastic. Having said all that, I got this unit on sale, and the sides and back have good corners, square like in the photo. They are still in the same awful particle board but they look nice and solidly support the unit. I don't see a need to screw it to the wall, but that is your choice. The back is not that cheap coloured cardboard but is actual 1/2 inch particle board, in two pieces. The unit goes together with a lot of those cams and also wooden pegs 1 inch long. Not many screws. To summarize, the most disappointing things are the (non)quality of the wood product and the smallness of the actual drawer space, the good things are that once assembled it is actually quite a nice looking unit, the back is at least solid not cardboard, and the sale price was OK. Box is very heavy, maybe around 80 pounds or something. I'm a woman alone and I had to take it into the house by opening the box and taking pieces in a few at a time.

There's a reason it's on sale for $99
An ok looking dresser, but some design and quality issues could end up being deal breakers.
First of all, even though the unit itself is 16" deep, the drawers themselves are just over 13" deep. There's nothing on the box with this dimension, in fact the box says "extra deep drawers". Also, there's quite a bit of open space at the bottom of the unit so there's wasted storage space there too.
The walls of the drawers are not full height, so depending on what you plan to put in the dresser, you may not be able to use the full height of the drawers and/or you may need to put up with spillage over the sides.
The pieces of wood on the side of the dresser where you attach the drawer rails is very low quality "particle board-like". Because of this the screws that hold the rails in place will split and heave this wood. This means the drawers may not fit well and eventually may pull the rails off the side.
Two other things to be aware of. The instruction manual, indicates the drawers are designed to hold 10 lbs max. They also expect you to anchor the dresser to studs in a wall to avoid tipping. They actually provide the screws and wall anchors to do this and there are holes in the back of the unit to do this. Still, not what I expected of what appears to be a free-standing dresser.
