I've used quite a few of these Blum slides and I'm quite satisfied with their operation. If I was reviewing them 5 years in the future and they were to still work this well I'd give them 5 stars, but a year or two is not long enough to evaluate the required durability of a complex mechanism like these. However,I find both the on-line catalog and Blum's instruction sheets confusing and difficult to work with. The catalog explains options very poorly and Blum's sheets are a mishmash of English and Metric dimensions.
There are certainly cheaper drawer slides available, but I have found the Blum Tandem + Blumotion slides to be absolutely great. Build the drawer boxes carefully, after careful review of the drawings and instructions, and you will find that they are easy to install and then work flawlessly. Adjustments can be made to align the drawer boxes in the opening, and to ensure that the fronts lay flat to the frame. I just finished my new kitchen, and my wife had specified all drawers, no doors. 29 drawers later, and every one works perfectly. Great product.
Installation instructions could be simplified with more diagrams and explanation for non-professional wood workers.

This review is about a different size/color of this item. (BS569A7620B)
I had to make catches for the back ends of the guides. The slides were easy to mount and required no fussing or adjustments after the initial screw-in. Very happy with the action. I will use these in the future.

Nice selection of cabinwt hardware. Quick shipping too.
The website clearly showed the replacement hinges I needed, and the cost was low. Also very prompt delivery.
good price. quick delivery. good quality
Great Experience! The hardware is made of great quality and priced much more reasonably than the Big Box stores (in stock or special order)! Great find and a great business! We haven't installed them yet, but look forward to using them!
