Office Desk DrawersNickieThese work really well. No complaints.
Disappointed!!!RoseannI am a huge IKEA fan but I am so disappointed in this item. The quality is awful. The drawer sides are covered in a plastic material that is delaminating and the underneath particle structure is crumbling. I will be surprised if the drawers last through 6 months of use. If this is the construction method that IKEA is using to meet price, I will no longer be a customer.
Alex file cabinetBridgetSuper easy to set up and very sturdy. Love the color, adds a nice pop to my office.
Great Product!LynnThis cabinet assembles easily, is strong, and well-finished. We now have 2 of them in different sizes! The only reason I didn’t rate it 5 stars is the the drawers are not full extension, so depending how it’s filled, something may have to be moved to reach what’s in the the back of the drawers.
Good productMariaVery useful
Item is great needs work on instructionsRyanNeed more explanation on instruction manual
These are great, but to some, there’s a catchRoxanneI really do love these drawers they are so versatile you could use them to attach to a desk you could use them in a craft room. You could use them in your library if you’re a book nerd, like me who likes to write notes and tabs their books. They would be great for kids rooms For organizing their crafts, they could also be great for a craft corner or a school station for those who prefer homeschooling. I’ve even seen someone use them in their garage for holding some smaller items for those who are big on diy projects. However, if you try to take these apart to save on space when moving, you will have a problem. When assembling these drawers, there are these clear plastic screws that need to be hammered into the furniture to hold everything in place. When trying to get them out of the furniture piece for dissembling, they were not only difficult to remove but they also damage the drawers themselves and needed to be replaced entirely and they aren’t cheap. Other than that, great product
DrawersKentAll in all good, but the drawer rollers are cheap, and difficult to pull out and in the drawers.
Great additon to my artRosemarieGreat additon to my art room!!!
Inserts don't fitMaryThe ALEX drawer unit is fine, but when I ordered, IKEA suggested Kuggis inserts, which certainly seemed like a good idea, so I ordered a couple of those also. But they're too big, they don't fit into the ALEX drawers! I'll go elsewhere for drawer dividers, but it's annoying that IKEA not only doesn't offer dividers that fit, but also recommends dividers that don't fit.
Also, once the drawers are screwed to the tracks, they're not removable (unlike kitchen and bathroom cabinet drawers that can be removed and then popped back in). Granted, there's no plumbing behind them, but still.
Sewing room delight.MargaretPurchased for my sewing room. My BIG BOARD ironing table fits across the two I bought. Drawers provide mega space for my sewing tools, patterns, etc. Makes the room much neater.
Perfect size and lots of storageBrianI have a glass desk with no drawers. Alex was perfect for storing a lot of items out of site making my work area look more organized.
love it!Amandaeasy to assemble and the drawers hold more than I thought they would. They slide easy and quietly. very sturdy
GreatRachelNice and sturdy.
CabinetFishNice looking, concerned about quality…..particle board
Great itemCraigI purchased two of these to build a sewing center for my wife. The build came out perfect. Plenty of storage and I added heavy duty casters.
Very FunctionalJoanI love this drawer unit. My printer fits on top and my paper, printer supplies, and some sewing supplies in it.
fantasticDetauraLove these, and I love the color. 3rd time to purchase, I paired 2 of these with a light-colored butcher block to make a massive desk. Looks great and was very inexpensive.
Best Buy I've MadeSharleneThe Alex series are the best purchases I've ever made from IKEA. Love the looks and the design but mostly love the quality of the material it is made from. Strong, sturdy and made to last.
Drawer for desk is goodChristineIt's easy to use, you can use as night stand, or put a board on 2 desk drawers, you can build your own desk.
