Very FrustratingKinetaThe screws get stuck, it's difficult to hold the hinges in place in the door while trying attach them and there really needs to be better instructions for aligning the doors than the vague diagrams (partly covered by price tags) on the bag.
Screws don't fitSusanI bought two sets of hinges for my Besta cabinet according to the computer diagram for what fits. The two screws that attach the hinge to the cabinet frame don't fit in the holes in the hinges. The holes are too small and/or the threads don't align, and the screws will not turn more than 2 threads' worth making it impossible to attach to the cabinet frame. From what I've read out there it's a known flaw with this particular hinge.

One hinge is defectiveBryanI just bought this kit for my white high gloss besta and earlier today I noticed on of the hinges has oil and after assembly found out this hinge is not working as expected as compared to the other hinge. I need to return this for a replacement and I will make sure this time prior leaving the store to check is soft close is working.

Horrible experienceLyanneAfter struggling to install these hinges and damaging one door I've realized that all of the 9 packs of hinges I ordered contain 2 different style hinges. I thought that was how they were designed to be until I decided to check the site and look at the picture. Clearly something went wrong with packing. At this point I'm not sure if I should go through the hassle removing the ones I installed and returning them all along with the one door that was damaged by the hinges or continue and try to make them work. Be sure to check yours before installing.
Needs magnetsKahraGood idea but design would make more sense if magnets were installed to hold the door closed
Good hinges once adjustedKyleNot square out the bag but great once you get them adjusted.
Absolute trashPI purchased 8 sets of these in 2021. I used two sets right away and actually didn't pay much attention to the slow close feature.
Yesterday I decided to change the two previously used doors to another besta unit and add new doors with the hinges I had stored since 2021. The hinges I had been using didn't slow close at all. Of the new ones I installed two sets leaked quite a bit of oil. One set was so bad that I had to discard both hinges. The slow close hinges that worked no longer did once adjusting them to make the doors on the unit level. Now, those doors won't close unless I push them closed which defeats the purpose of the hinge and will probably break it over time. The oil is a big issue. I am using my besta to store fabric. Now I don't want to shut the doors because they will leak oil on my fabric.
If I hadn't waited so long to use them I would return all of them. Unfortunately it's a loss of money for me. Buyer beware. IKEA should be ashamed to sell such garbage.
Damper fails in less than a yearHenryHinges install and adjust easily. However dampers failed in all 4 hinges in less than a year.
Sturdy and dependableMichealI always appreciate it when these types of hinges are used on IKEA cabinet product
These are literally the worst hinges I've ever usedHunterIt's so much easier to install standard, from-random-cabinet-company hinges than these monstrosities.
Screws don't fit!JillI bought two pairs of these (4 total) as part of a Besta system and the screws do not fit on any of them. I am just going to go to my local hardware store.

Tough to align the doors
Fantastic Hinges!!!LawrenceDon’t understand all the fuss with the screws or about adjusting and aligning doors. It’s a common style hinge. They work great.
Now all that said I could understand a novice/ DIY’er struggling but shouldn’t complain when your trying to save money hiring doing it yourself versus hiring someone who knows what there
JaseJasonEasy assembly, works great, cannot go wrong on the classic look.
