|This island is perfect. It has great storage, extra work space, and it 's portable. You can't ask for more. I just love it.

|Was really surprised by the quality of this cart. Unfortunately for the environment, but great for the pieces, every single item in the shipment was wrapped in plastic/styro and nothing was damaged in shipment(and the box looked like UPS took liberties with it).
The cart fit together without a problem - and actually much easier than IKEA furniture. When putting it together, double check to make sure the pieces are facing in the correct direction as some of them aren't labeled as to which way is front and some of the directions are a little too subtle. I would recommend a cordless drill to help you with the drawers as there's a lot of screws (14 per drawer). Total time to assemble < 2 hrs(and the drawers were about half of that).
Fully assembled, the cart is very sturdy. I wish there were a couple more shelves for the 2 side cabinets(only one each) - but that's been the largest downside of this cart.
