I bloody love these things. Not sure why. Have some heat.
I wouldn't say fit for a mechanic, but ok for light tools. I have one, but the draws are difficult to slide out when full of tools.
Bought this very recently when the Halfords deals were on..I looked around to see what could compare..and although I agree with damo1972 comments, I am pleased with this handy piece of kit...heat to op.
never heard of sgs... some good stuff on there website.. thanks
The max load per drawer is 8kg. is this enough, I notice the Halfords ones are 20kg?
Never heard of SGS either , is it made here or China ? Sounds like it a cheap "kerb side mechanic" box to me ? Not saying it's no good just that it doesn't seem to be of the pro variety i.e. no bearings in the drawer mechanisms. Although it does say it has ?

Ideal sideboard for my lounge
I bought a similar one from Halfords, they are good for the novice mechanic/bike tools but any serious weight on the drawers does cause it to be awkward in pulling it out.
this is very similar to the above but in red and £20 cheaper
Is the general opion of this that it is not the quality that it claims to be?

Reading the reviews and taking price into consideration it's great value for money. If you are running a pro garage then this is not for you. If you are a hobbyist who needs to have a central place for tools and bits then it's perfect. Depends on your needs.

I think if you are in need of one of these and/or starting a tool collection then this will do you well. If you see a need in the future for a bigger and better one this will probably still do for now as main and then as a 2nd storage for lighter and not used as much tools when ready to spend £500.

I'm very tempted. Voted hot.

Update: I've gone for it, thanks OP. Says delivery tomorrow. Once assembled I will report back.

used SGS for buying a 3 Ton car jack and found it to be good quality and decent customer service. Would be interested to hear from anyone who has bought what they think of them.
this or the ebay one, both would probally serve me ok as a diyer
There are some good US Pro ones on ebay too.

now im spoilt for choice lol
I got mine - super quick delivery in about 18 hours from order. Very impressed

But there are problems which I've emailed them about and I am awaiting response:

[*]Basically it looks like it has been dropped at some point and on signing for delivery I didn’t notice the slight damage to box. There is quite a bend in the back panel that I may or may not be able to push out - although it will never be straight. But it is at a place that will nearly always be up against a wall so not a massive issue, just annoying

[*]All but one of the drawers run very nice but mine looked scuffed in places. When I emailed them about the one drawer it wouldn't open and close properly. Since then I found the bit of bit of metal that was stopping it and fixed the drawer.

These are dents or scuffs that I imagine would appear over time but I would have preferred to be the one making them. I put in the email to them the faulty drawer was the game changer and asked about exchange but since I’ve fixed that I will probably keep the one I have but I am awaiting response before telling them that in case they knock a couple of quid off (ya never know).

If you get a non-dropped one then they are well worth the money. If all they have in stock in damaged / returns then it’s a bit misleading. Right now I’m going on the assumption I was just unlucky.
