Rated 3 out of 5 by Andrew Marriott not worth full price
I bought this item on sale and got the impression, the sale was to get rid of reject furniture.
Pre drilled holes, not aligned properly and the item not up to the standard I was expecting or viewed in store.
Instructions need improving, as the order of completion could be better and some of the instructions, simply weren't there. Not missing, obviously not thought important enough to have been included.
Looks okay, now it's together, other than what looks as a mark on one of the doors, but I can rectify that.
Wouldn't have been happy, if I'd paid full price.
Seconds should be advertised as such, not sale items

Rated 3 out of 5 by MILLO looks nice but poorly made
Now the product is built it does look great, however putting together was a nightmare.
My husband said that the instructions were poor, he had to re drill some of the holes as some did not line up and the runners were not working properly. The drawers are stiff to move but hoping this will get easier with use.
Lots of hassle for something that should be easy to put together!

Amazing sideboard looks and feels quality only 1 issue is the cam lock fixings are of poor quality to cope with real wood which inevitably is not going to be as perfectly lined up as manufactured boards so are easily bent or snapped

The fixings supplied are of poor quality and make assembly difficult

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mattp Terrible!!!
Please don't buy this item! Only bought it because had already bought the dining table. Fixings are terrible, screw heads snapped off as being screwed in, had to buy better quality screws. No pilot holes are in line and are out of place, one of the doors was badly marked, poor quality product, homebase shouldn't even be selling something this bad!!
Worst piece of furniture I've ever had to put together, I may have just been unlucky, but reading other reviews I don't think so

Rated 2 out of 5 by Terry Felton Not as good as expected
Advertised as solid oak but some of this product is not oak at all. Also, it's self assembly and it is not accurately made, marked or predrilled. I had to reposition the runners on the drawers so that they would close and the same with some of the door hinges as the fit was out by more than the adjustability of the hinges. Overall the doors and drawers do not sit square and it only really looks okay from a distance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stuart Very poor quality
I bought this product thinking it would be good quality. I've had better products that were a tenth of the price.
Firstly it's at least a 4 hour job to put it together. The quality of the wood is very poor. Some of the wood seems very soft and the screws kept turning without locking. The worst part are the doors, they don't fit square to the surround do there are large gaps at the top of the door. The hinge adjustments cannot square the doors.
For the price of this unit I could of got a ready assembled unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Vanessa Very disappointing.
Very poor quality fixings. As previously stated pre drilled holes are not aligned. The holes for the locking nuts all vary in depth so it is pot luck if the bolts lock in. I should have heeded the previous reviews but I lived in hope and thought things would have improved - I guess the manufacturer doesn't take any notice of the feed back on this site. Also drawer bottoms were missing so had to contact the very good customer service team to get theses sent out.
