Love this series!FRENETTEI put together a desk using a counter top and Alex units. I love it! I can change the configuration to match my changing needs. So much storage. Works for me!5
filing cabinetMarvalove it. Now I have two but every hard to get one as they are usually out of stock5
Love it.RubenFirst glance I thought it was going to be metal but it’s wood. It’s super sturdy and really easy to assemble. Looks great and functions well. Makes a great addition to my IKEA Desk5
Missing PartsDawnI waited and waited for this tom come back into stock. After driving 2.5 hours to Memphis and then back, I was disappointed that a side of the drawer was missing so it t could not be fully assembled. As it is not close to go back to the store, I tried calling and could never get a hold of any one. After reaching out via Facebook, I still could not get anyone to talk to to resolve this problem. I am very disappointed in the product and Ikea lack of customer service especially gievn the circumstances.1
Good valuegeorgeThe file drawer works well. It is a good value for the money.5
Increase HeightDEBORAHThis file drawer is great and not too difficult to put together. However, I suggest IKEA make it the same height as their Alex desk (which I also have) since the file drawer can't fit under the desk. An increased height would create a smooth transition across both surfaces when placed together. Currently I have boards placed under my file drawer to raise it up to the Alex desk level.
I'm of Scandinavian and Finnish descent and love IKEA!4
Good ValueKirstenThis drawer was easy to assembly. I use it as the middle portion to a shared desk. It allows for easy access to my files in the hanging drawer on the bottom while still having enough space in the upper drawers to hold my other office and class supplies.5
SturdyJulie E.Bought 2 as a desk base and they’re very sturdy. Only wish the upper drawers were a little deeper but they’ll hold pens and staplers, etc. just a little more depth for stuff like stamps, etc would be good.5
Solid piece!AswanWe set up another desk in our home. I originally wanted the 4 drawer Alex which we have with the other desk. They were sold out. I’m glad because I love the filing drawer on this one!5
Unit was brokenLove64When I got the product and open the box it was broken.1
Great pieces of furniture!AJC12345I didn't buy this piece, but I wanted to. However, my problem was that it did not come in blue and I really wanted it to match the rest of my furniture.5
Twin2Fantastic draws are perfect for every day desk.5
Love design but not great on carpetConnie HI like almost everything except like others have said the bottom drawer is too low to the floor. If you have thick carpet and/or padding underneath it and plan use it as a desk support, the more weight you have on the desktop the more difficult it is to pull open the bottom drawer. I may put some boards underneath to raise it up enough to make opening the bottom drawer easier on carpet.4
Missing PartsjayxnxOne thing I genuinely hate about Ikea is they fail to provide all the parts needed. I just bought this drawer today, waited in a 45 min line outside the store to buy this file cabinet. I get home and assemble it immediately and I am missing the a side to the very last drawer. I was almost done and almost felt accomplished assembling cabinet with their useless instructions and I can’t even finish the last drawer because they didn’t supply the parts. It’s so sad that I expected this though, it’s Ikea, there’s so many flaws in their products and packaging. I don’t even know what i’m supposed to do now, call for missing parts? That’s ridiculous. I love the way this file cabinet looks though it sucks that it will sit in my room unfinished for now.3
Alexa drawerBbygirlaleIt super easy to put together and helps you stay more organized5
Love my desk!timquesLove it! easy to assemble5
Gray picture is a lieJDudley12If you look at the picture for the new gray one they must have just photoshopped it from the five drawer because there is NO base and feet. I thought they had finally solved the issue of using this on carpet, but after struggling with click and collect for WEEKS, put this together and it is exactly the same as the old one.1
Love the versatility!Sally53I bought the ALEX Drawer Unit/Drop File storage cabinet for my card making/scrap booking for additional storage. I love how well built the unit is. The file drawer is for my stickers, while the single drawers hold my scraps and other card making supplies.5
Great if not on CarpetAAAVI bought two of this unit and the Alex Drawer unit to be used as table base with 2 spaces in between them. I have no issues with the Alex Drawer. With this one , it is hard to open and close the lower file section on the carpet. Due to its low design, it get stuck on the carpet. This also must have the small raise the drawer unit has at the bottom to work well on the carpet. Now I have two of these with not usable lower draw.3
