Multi media cabinetFeb 20, 2012
Was a little cautious about ordering this cabinet with the bad review, but soooo glad I ignored it and went ahead and ordered it. The cabinet came to the front door in perfect shape. The price was awesome and my boss couldn't of been happier with the purchase. I purchased two cabinets and thrilled with them.

Safco Media CabinetOct 28, 2011
Safco Media Cabinet from TheFactoryDepot:
I ordered two cabinets on a special price designation through Amazon to be shipped by TheFactoryDepot (shipping is a consideration in buying this merchandise...nearly $90.00 per). One cabinet arrived in fairly decent condition; the other was mangled, twisted, bent and wracked beyond recognition. It took three days, a lot of emails and some serious pressure from Amazon, but eventually TheFactoryDepot made good on the situation to my satisfaction. It was still a PITA disposing of the damaged cabinet and I strongly suggest you have the delivery guy WAIT while you unwrap any cabinet you order and examine it carefully for damage. Both of these cabinets were well packaged and looked totally unscathed from the outside. It was only after I opened them several hours later that I discovered the serious damage. Be sure and open and close the drawers to see that they work smoothly and to examine the bottom and top for dents and bending along the frame rails as wracking does occur during shipping.
As to the cabinets themselves....this is on Safco...not Amazon or TheFactoryDepot. These cabinets are worth what I paid for the one but no where close to what they are widely advertised for ($700-$900). I can't even begin to imagine what in the world prompts the price Safco puts on these. They can't cost more than $200 - $250 to fabricate and construct and are a far, far cry from being anywhere remotely close to the quality of my similarly priced Bisley Media tambour door cabinet. These cabinets have so-so drawer glides and relatively cheap drawers that are easily wracked. The metal in the frame themselves is easily dented and scratched. A lot of those problems are inherent in all metal storage cabinetry, but Safco is not anywhere close to being the highest quality around at that price. The most annoying thing about the cabinets I ordered where these "patent pending" plastic inserts they came with in the drawers. They are meant to allow you to securely fit two (2) CDs or DVDs per slot in ten slots in each "brick" insert...six "bricks" to a drawer. They fit poorly, ride up along side each other and basically cause most of the problems closing the drawers once the media is inserted. Before I realized what a total crap design they truly were, I had broken 12 jewel cases closing (or attempting to close) the drawers. The cabinets come in a model with front to back drawer rod separators with uniquely designed sliding stops on each to hold the jewels cases in place when there are not enough to fill each slot. STRONGLY suggest you spend the extra money and get the front to back drawer rod separator model and forget the one with the plastic bricks.
Over all, a less than high quality cabinet that is functional if you want to risk slicing the *&^%$%&$#@ out of your hand on the inside the cabinet metal edges and go through fighting it for a day or two to get it operating smoothly. Upside: They arrive fully assembled with only the door pulls to install. Downside: Price, quality less than stellar for this toney price range, componentry (plastic brick inserts for media) and design. If you can find them at about half the advertised price on sale and buy them off of a reputable dealer like TheFactoryDepot who will make good on damage claims, they're worth taking a look at, however there are much better choices out there (Bisley, Empire) for the full retail price.
