Pros: good quality product
Cons: heavy to lift on your own
" Just purchased this unit and the top draw set combined due to special offer on at present.
Halfords have listened to previous reviews as the quality was excellent cannot find a fault with it except the weight. Bear this in mind when you get home with it in your car on your own.
Barrow staff very helpful with helping me get the products out of the shop.
This is must to keep tools all in one place and not scattered over the workshop.

Pros: great value for money, solid build, opening/ closing action, fast delivery from halfords
Cons: stickers
" Got this as part of the offer with the Industrial Tool Chest, giving great value for money.
Good solid build and nice opening/ closing action.
My only let down was the advertising stickers on the cabinet. After building it up and spending the time loading it up, I then decided to pull the stickers off, and one sticker lifted about a dozen 2mm specks of paint off the cabinet, showing the white undercoat.
Obviously I'm not happy with that but I have put too much time and effort into it, to return a large 50+kg unit to the store.

Pros: looks good, good castors
Cons: horrible built quality, shallow drawers, not very good locks, silly stickers hard to peel off, cheap inside mats, not that big
" I am very disappointed with this cabinet and the top unit. The idea is great; the materials used are fantastic; the paint is nice and thick. The problem is that whoever built it (and I have seen I am not the only one to have found this) did a horrific job. It is scratched and dented all over. Four of the drawers are not as smooth as they should be, because some metal parts are bent and they scratch the lower drawers. One of the drawers still won't go smooth and I can't fix it. One of the wheels has some silver paint sprayed on by mistake. The upper unit weights 40 Kg, while the lower one 53 Kg. It is not something you can take home by yourself. I used a van and a hand-sack trolley and I was not able to do a set of stairs by myself with the base unit. Another thing is that once you put all your tools inside the drawers, you realize that it's not that big at all. Also the drawers of the lower unit could be a bit deeper. Why didn't I return it? Because it was a nightmare to bring it home and I couldn't possibly do it all over again and delivery is charged at extortion prices. Probably there is a reason if it costs so much less than virtually all of the competition.
One thing must be said about the tons of silly stickers all over the place. I have already bought it... I don't need to be convinced to buy it, so why cover it with stickers that are hard to peel off? It took me about half an hour to remove them all.
The mats inside the drawers are as cheap as they get and they will need replacing very soon.
Why in the world is the upper unit only 1cm smaller than the base unit in one side only? You are left with 1cm of space right in the front and it really doesn't make any sense. Sidewise it fits just right... so why can't it fit just right also the other way?
Once again, you get what you pay for. Definitely not for you if you are picky about things. You will be disappointed.

Pros: quality, value for money, smooth drawers even when loaded
" as far as tool cabinets go, this is by far the best value for money.
as mentioned many times, the quality is brilliant, and the drawers are nice and smooth even when fully loaded.
this will always be a brilliant tool cabinet as far as im concerned, my only draw back is its not big enough anymore even with the chest on top.
HALFORDS - you really need to bring out an intermediate chest for this cabinet, i think it would be a big hit for those looking for a little more space as upgrading to a bigger box of the same quality comes with a ridiculous price tag that for someone at a DIY level might not be able to justify. "
