Update: We got a replacement dresser. I assembled it. There were no broken pieces of wood this time, but there was a screw socket missing on one of the panel pieces (the screw socket is one of the little threaded metal pieces mounted inside the wood parts which the screws connect to). I bet someone at the factory in China forgot to glue a socket in. In other words, the quality is still not 100%. Two out of two items have had quality issues. Luckily, the place which is missing a screw socket is not very critical for the overall sturdiness, so the dresser holds together even without that one screw in place. It is annoying to put together a defective piece, but I can't deal with taking this heavy item back to the UPS store again.
Assembly was straightforward. One important tip - make sure you install the drawer slides correctly. It's easy to reverse them so the back of the slide is at the front of the drawer... if you insert the drawer that way, you'll have to disassemble the drawer from inside the dresser, because it gets very stuck.
The quality is much better than what you'd get at Walmart or Target for $100-$200. Mostly solid wood with some particle board pieces (backing & drawer bottoms). The biggest issue we have is that not everything is aligned just right. Some drawers glide very smoothly but others have too much resistance. There isn't anything obviously bent or bowed, but it isn't quite perfect.
On the bright side, the only smell you notice is a fairly strong wood smell. No significant offgassing, and hopefully they're being honest about the lower chemical content in the product.
I'd buy this again, and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to spend $500+ for a name brand item.
