I was both excited and weary about this product at first. I spent a lot of time reading the comments and was worried that the packaging wouldn't be enough to protect the cabinet. The packaging itself was fairly well done. It wasn't extraordinarily packed but it was protected well enough. As for the actual cabinet itself, it only had a couple of very minor chips, nothing a sharpie couldn't take care of. Otherwise it was a good shape and assembly was fairly easy too.
