I have found that although the cabinets are rated very well for overall strength, they lack a certain quality control in construction. the sides are not always inserted into the side dado joint all the way with substantial gaps visible from the top and bottom. But my main quality concern is that the top interior joints are rarely closed well with VERY visible gaps most of the time. There is also a very noticeable difference in quality from the wood stained product which feels dry and somewhat starved. I have had some issues with this characteristic, which unfortunately to be returned to the plant for replacement, especially the very dark colors..But their painted and glazed finishes are most excellent. I have never had a return due to starved painted or glazed finishes in the last 5 yrs.
