Easy to assemble, great quality!
I purchased two of these and am very impressed with the quality! Its very sturdy, and really, how sturdy do you need a night stand to be? I was amazed at reading reviews on how hard it was to assemble, not just on this site, but on all the others too. I'm 9 months pregnant and was able to assemble both night stands in two hours and did not have any confusion or difficulties. It is very true to picture, and was exactly what I was looking for!

Extremely well made product
As with my review of the rest of this set it was a great buy very well built and heavy duty furniture Sauder really stepped it up.

Good product - Satisfied with final construction with only Phillips screwdriver and hammer...
I purchased this because my teenage daughter wanted an upgrade from her smaller nightstand. After reading mixed reviews about the difficulty of building the nightstand, my daughter was confident that she could help me. Having a helping hand and eyes is always a good thing when constructing. The box that came in was pretty heavy and fortunately all the parts were included with no defects. The total time it took with her help was about two hours with only two screwdrivers and a hammer. It can be a one person job but it's helpful to get a different perspective on the instructions which were pretty clearly written and an extra hand to hold things in place while hammering or putting in a screw. The final product was sturdy and looked great even though it was made of particle board. It was also supposedly very eco-friendly since there was recycled wood products used and made in the USA. Recommended for anyone who wants a nightstand on the bigger side and has time on their hands to build it.

Excellent look, easy to assemble
I have the "salted oak" and for assembly-at-home items, I'm pretty impressed with Sauder so far. The directions were super easy, took about an hour to assemble, about 15 minutes to verify all the parts and organize them, but that's how I assemble things, so it was no problem getting this together. It's heavy, though, 56lbs, so I am unsure why people say it's cheap particle board -go to Walmart or Big Lots for their comparable assembly at home items and you can twirl them over your head and the first spilled glass of water you have a bloated mess. This can take a spill for at least enough time to get something to clean it up. Even with this, however, I wouldn't leave a spill unattended for long. Use coasters or a decorative mat, problem solved. I also bought the headboard and dresser but haven't put them together yet so I'll comment on those under the proper item when it's time.

This was the PERFECT addition to my daughter's room
This was the PERFECT addition to my daughter's room. She had an Ashley Furniture bedroom set that we purchased new about 10 years ago. I stressed that we wouldn't be able to find something that would match once we decided she needed a night stand, but I decided to give this a try due to the great buy. It was perfect! Assembly was pretty easy (about 30 minutes, by myself) and the look was superb! It matched her room absolutely perfectly. The piece is very sturdy and well-made. The look is neutral and classic. This would go great in a variety of spaces. I'm extremely pleased with the purchase and would highly recommend it to other potential buyers.

These are sturdy nightstands. They look great too! The only thing I would say could have been better was if all of the parts would have been in the bag (nails, screws, etc.).

I love this!! It took me about 5-6 hours to build but it was easy to assemble and the directions were for the most part easy to understand. I am not a crafty person and I don't build things like this at all. So it's simple enough a first timer can do it!!
Also, I would say first lay out and organize all of the pieces before you assemble.. There are so many tiny screws and boards it gets a little crazy if you don't know which piece is which.

I bought two of these nightstands and my wife and I love them. They arrived well packaged and with no damage. I received all of the hardware necessary to set them up. They do take a little time to set up... but that was expected. You don't need to be a furniture maker to understand the directions, which were well laid out and descriptive. Great nightstands!

Very sturdy night stand
Very sturdy night stand. I purchased this to match the dresser in my daughters room. She loves it. My only complaint is the backing is cardboard not wood or even pressed wood. And if your looking for a pure white or a bright white then this is not for you. The color is more a muted, dirty white.

Looks great, but...
First of all, I must admit that I am not very handy and have never attempted to put anything together and this thing, well, it was a pain! It took me all day to put it together, because it turned out that some of the screws weren't long enough to hold the pieces together. So I had to go to the hardware store and buy new ones. The drawer is jammed and I can't get it back out. Granted, I have no clue if I put these roller rails in right, but I followed the instruction to a T and well, I can't move the thing now.
It does look nice once it was together, but the pieces are cheap. I would have rather paid more for a "real" nightstand that gets delivered in one piece!
