Used to be amazing, now they (mostly) stink.LARRY M.I have 7 of these, purchased over many years now. The old ones for $60 were amazing. Then they went to $100 and the glass went to caca. Spontaneous detonation while your keepsakes are on a shelf is not something you want. Also the 'feet' quality aren't up to par now. One snapped off an empty case, while trying to move it a couple of inches. Now they're $130? More than double the cost and even cheesier. I used to have great respect for Ikea. They used to make a quality product at a reasonable price overall. Looks like they've gone to the dogs now. Makes me sad, actually.
To expensive for medium product.David r.This isn't worth $130. When it was half the cost wasn't bad.
Display casesPatrick S.Great cabinets for displaying larger 1/6 scale action figures and play sets. When I bought both of my cabinets, they were $99. Now $129 with no addition (lights, etc) or improvements made to the cabinets.
Nice item, but getting more expensive than it’s worth. Shipping is a little expensive if you aren’t fortunate enough to have an Ikea within driving distance.
They look great and are perfect for smaller spaces, but there are other comparable cabinets online, to choose from, so hopefully Ikea gets more competitive with their prices.
Great cabinetJohn W.Love these cabinets. My only complaint is the dioder led lights were discontinued. Very hard to find lighting that will fit these cabinets.
Glass door exploded - glass pieces everywhereKitty O.I've had this curio for several years & the shelves have very little weight on them. Today the front glass door spontaneously exploded into hundreds of glass pieces, which blew across the floor & living area & on the shelves. Prior to this, there were no cracks, it was aligned straight, nothing was near or leaning on it, etc. No idea why it happened or if others have experienced it but it's dangerous.
Detolf glass cabinetAmber B.Once constructed this is an absolutely amazing cabinet!!! I will say...instructions weren't great and I had to trouble shoot on YouTube but found a great video. The one instruction that should be mentioned is the long plastic corner pieces have to go on a certain way for the top to go on correctly. We had the glass in the grooves in the plastic corner pieces and they seemed to fit but it was incorrect. Make sure the wider plastic side is on the BACK of the cabinet...once we changed that..it went back together within 20-30 minutes. I would definitely buy another now that I know how to put it together ❤️
Fantastic Display!Maranda W.Detolf, while heavy, was easy to put together and really shows off my collection!
Detolf reviewLisa E.These are great display cabinets - my only problem with them is that the price doubled since last year.
Perfect glass cabinetDaniel R.this is perfect for displaying items because there is minimal interference from the cabinet itself -- almost all is glass. Price is also good, though assembly takes patience and some time.
I absolutely love my detolf cabinetsRobyn R.The cabinet was fairly easy to assemble. I did shatter one glass shelf while getting them from the box. I had already purchased modified shelving.
Something has definitely changed....Chris L.I have an old Detolf that's great. That unit is solid and I can move it around without any issues. Tried a Blåliden that's supposed to be the replacement and realized how bad it truly is. So I returned that for another Detolf. During assembly last night I could see a speck/bubble in one of the side panels. Also the ladder frame threads for the bottom were fine but I had a really hard time getting the nuts to tighten on the top of the frame due to the paint on the threads. You could see that the paint was stripped off on the bottom of the ladder threads but definitely not on the top. Also, because of the paint on the threads for the top of the detolf assembly the amount of torque required to even start screwing them on was enough to torque and twist the ladder frame inside the cabinet. The entire Detolf is now slightly twisted and torqued. The door dragged on the bottom of the frame and required me lifting the glass inside the hinge using a piece of leather. Glass is thinner too. Sad..
Love itMary P.My son is wanted it for his room and has his lego builds and collectibles In there. It looks nice just wish it had a light
Great CabinetNancy P.Loved this cabinet for storing items in my bedroom. Took less than an hour to put together. Worth the price for the look!
Be very careful - this cabinet exploded into shards of glass when home was unoccupiedWayne M.We have two of these cabinets - we use them to store some lightweight decorative items. We came home from a trip to find one of the cabinets shattered and glass all over the room and into the next. Thank goodness no one was home and in the room. After googling I see numerous accounts of this happening. I initially thought maybe there was some vibration from a storm or something that caused this but after looking at other accounts I see this is just a known product issue. This was not during assembly - we have had this case for several years so there must be some defect in the glass that causes this to happen over time. The shelves were fine - it was just one whole side of the cabinet that shattered and exploded all over the room. Thankfully my items in the case which were very fragile survived.
GreatJoshua M.It was just what i was looking for and easy to put together
Display family accomplishmentsChristina W.This went together easy and is perfect for pieces that you really want to put on display.
Currently my 16 year old son has one in his room to display lego kits and art pieces. Great place to show what family members are proud they have made.
It also works well for any collectibles-very minimal dust.
Nice cabinetJake B.Nice cabinet for what I needed it for, but definitely recommend having 2 people put it together
Lower quality and higher priceNICHOLAS C.They have made the glass thinner and the over quality is lower yet more expensive.
Better options availableTyler H.I've had a few cabinets style pieces from ikea now. This one is the absolute worst. Pieces don't match up, attachments aren't long enough. The instructions are extremely difficult to follow. This has been the worst piece I've ever had to put together. Honestly spend the extra money and get a milsbo. You won't regret it.
I love itERIC T.Grwat
