The finished dimensions of this drawer are 7.5 high (includes wheels) by 14.5 w by 16.75 d. The box itself is 6 inches high, with a 5.25 inch internal height capacity. That's a disappointment because it ends up being half an inch too high for the space under my kids' beds.

The finish is a dull flat chocolate brown colour - fine, if unexciting (I would prefer an espresso finish), instructions are visual only but easy to follow and parts are well-labelled. It is of similar particulate board material to Ikea products; the base is kind of thin and the one I received, which was marked as manufactured in May 2012, was slightly warped so it took a little coaxing to get the fit snug. This box would be better with a slightly thicker base but it's probably good up to the 15 lb advertised. The wheels swivel in all directions and each wheel is attached using four screws, so if you're planning to assemble several boxes you might want to have a power screwdriver handy.

Other than the base being a bit flimsy, the only major quibble I have with the quality of this product is that the locking nuts are really cheap and poorly made - the nuts really don't grip the screw head securely and work themselves loose: two of them loosened and fell out while I had the drawer flipped over to screw on the wheels. The manufacturer really should spend an extra few cents on better locking nuts - and ideally on a slightly sturdier base. If the height hadn't been an issue I would have gone to my local hardware store to find a better quality replacement for the locking nuts, but as it is this will be going back to Amazon.

Update - for others who are looking for low-slung under bed or under-crib storage, I ended up buying Old fashioned Wooden Wine Boxes. As noted in my review of that product, it's a small project to upgrade those boxes to great under-bed storage. In addition to a better (lower) height and vastly improved sturdiness, I found that the dimensions of the wine boxes worked better than the Homz product: they have a similar width but are longer (~20 in), so three wine boxes fit under a standard crib/toddler bed with very little unused space behind them.

I purchased this product (3 of them) due to the dimensions listed (Product Dimensions: 4.8 x 16.7 x 20.5 inches ; 6.6 pounds ) in the description. My son's bed is 6.6 inches from the floor and other underbed storage products I was interested in were 6.8. These were list as shorter, wider, and longer and seemed to be the best choice. I even paid to have next day delivery due to an organizer coming in. When the units arrived, the dimensions were not even close to what was listed. The actual dimensions on the packaging are 14.5 x 16.75 x 7!!! Little bit of a difference there! Now, I have to purchase another one to have the same storage space IF when I put one together it will fit under the bed easily. Otherwise, these will be getting returned and my organizer will not have them for tomorrow's appt.

The units themselves are cute and very convenient for labeling, but only order them if you are wanting something smaller and your bed is at least 7.25 inches from the floor (1/4 more if on carpet).Homz Short Underbed Storage, Mahogany

I ordered three of these at about $18 each from Amazon. They were extremely easy to put together; unfortunately they don't stay together. They are basically too small for adult clothing. We are attempting to use them for my husbands clothing under the bed since we cannot fit both an infant crib and dresser inside the room. I can fit about 6-10 pairs of Large men's boxers in one drawer. I can fit only socks in another (maybe 15 pairs). And the third has 2-3 pairs of size Lg athletic shorts and 2-3 Lg shirts for working out. This would be fine if my husband were a minimalist when it comes to clothing. He has at least three times this much of each item so most of it is now in storage boxes in the basement with basically "living essentials" inside the room. Every single drawer falls apart every single time we pull them out from under the bed. Sometimes if I just bump the drawer it will fall apart and I hear the hardware rolling across the floor. We've only them for about 2 weeks and I have had to put them together constantly. Too bad I threw out the packages the same day. At this point I'm planning to nail the pieces together to try to salvage this attempted storage idea. If it weren't for falling apart CONSTANTLY, being too small to store items and the corners being very sharp (I have stubbed my toes on them several times already) these would probably be much higher on my organizational list. The idea is good but the product is horrible.

This is very poorly constructed, and does not look very good once assembled. It is small enough to ship assembled, but is shipped in pieces which adds to the cheapness of the unit. I would not reccomend this product.

These were terrible for the 2 weeks they lasted. The assembly was not as easy as promised, the material was FLIMSY and they broke after 2 weeks of normal use, no heavy wear and tear. Waste of money.

As someone else stated the hardware on these stink. The come with dowels and locking bolts that do not function. They are constantly coming loose and falling apart. I am throwing them away today after two months of constant re-assembly. Lame.
