Storage Cabinet, 60-in
Not beautiful, but functional
I've had two of these cabinets (only narrower and taller) for six years and they both look as good as they did when I brought them home. They're in my laundry room, storing cleaning supplies, toiletries laundry soap, and odds and ends and are very handy.
Good functionality for the price.

If you're looking for QUALITY, keep looking.
This cabinet is made 100% of particle board. The backing is a piece of 3mm cardboard. This does not bother me as I intend to use it to store toiletries.
I assembled it as instructed and it went together easily. The only problem I encountered was that the holes were not drilled through 100% for the middle shelf. Thankfully I was able to push the screw through from the inside to resolve the issue.
After the cabinet was assembled I took the doors out of the box to install them and discovered the corner was completely missing from one of the doors. This was not damage during shipment, this was a quality issue at the packaging facilty.
I intend to take the doors only back to Canadian Tire so they can exchange them for new ones. Additionally, two of the fixed shelves have chipped edges, which I did not notice until the cabinet was assembed.
I would not recommend buying this product to anyone that is looking for a quality product that will last. In my opinion this shelf should not market for more than $40 and should be on sale for $19.99.
Additionally, I tried contacting Talon online regarding this issue and their contact information online is not valid. Very disappointing to learn Talon supplies Black&Decker and IKEA.

Simple simple product that works, but is made cheaply. If you wanted quality be sure to pay more for a cabinet maker. It's compressed fiber board, not sure what other people expect. But I got something that worked as a temporary pantry when we needed it for cheap.

Good Storage, watch the hardware
Easy to assemble as long as you take inventory of the hardware. 2 of the hinge assemblies were badly bent and luckily the metal was able to bend back into shape with a large pair of pliers. Predrilled holes for door handles didn't match up on one door, therefore had to enlarge one hole somewhat to make it fit. Some pieces were damaged here and there on the edges and some of the finishing veneers were not joined well, but I feel I got what I paid for, lots more storage space in my laundry room, presentable enough to put anywhere I need the storage.

o.k.... with some modifications
Particle board construction with a paperboard backing is all you can get. I looked online everywhere for solid wood construction and found notta. As my Dad says "nothing is built to last these days". Doesn't say much for black and decker quality as far as I'm concerned. It was on sale so I spent the savings on 1/4 plywood for the back instead of the paperboard, and some liquid nails and particle board screws. Not sure if it was worth the effort but it's quite a bit stronger now. Still pretty flexy if you have to move it. Be careful with modifications on this stuff, it's easy to permanently damage it.

This storage cabinet has been very handy and versatile. I needed some extra storage in my kitchen about 7 years ago and I've been quite satisfied with it. I assembled it very quickly by myself. I have moved a number of times (one of the moves was 3000 miles!) and it is still in perfect condition. I am planning to buy another one for my laundry room!

Provides great storage
I have 6 of these units in my home. They have ample space. 1 houses the kids shoes in the back deck, while another one gets used for their school snacks. Other uses of ours are to store linens & board games.
They are slightly flimsy though so moving once set up wouldn't really be recommended. The doors also tend to strip from the press board if they are used on a regular basis.

Would definitely recommend this product if you need extra storage

Great Value and Great Looking
I bought this pantry to put all my shirts and sweaters in for my bedroom. It held more clothing than my previous 3-drawer dresser and I like that I can see all my shirts and sweaters because they are stacked on top of each other as opposed to having to sift through my dresser to find a particular item. Assembly was easy, but it did take two people to assemble it (ie. one person to hold the back board while the other person hammers the nails in place). The look is modern and the pantry is versatile. I can use this pantry in the kitchen or laundry if I don't want to use it as my clothes dresser anymore. It is worth the buy.

Free's up so much cupboard space
Was contemplating whether to buy the larger 6' version or the smaller one. In the end I bought this 5' size and brought it home. It's the perfect size for my condo kitchen and it holds a lot of food and appliances. Very strudy unit, easy to assemble. Now my kitchen looks neat and organized without any clutter. Great storage system to stock up on canned foods or beverages.
