    We have Bott/Kennedy and Stor - Loc. Both are great, I thing the Stor - Loc was less expensive and more flexible with drawer combinations.

    I really like my Kennedy bench and cabinets. Incredibly stout, drawers are smooth, capacity is great. Unfortunately, I've never used Eqipto or Vidmar for comparison.

    I'll second the Rousseau endorsement. I have never had the slightest problem with them. Very nice quality.

    The Vidmar units I have used have roller drawer slides like an old school file cabinet. Other builders like Lista use ball bearing drawer slides like a toolbox. I think the rollers in the Vidmar are much better.

    I don't know if others use the rollers, but that's what I would look for.

    Stor-Loc might end up cheaper. Broad line. Modularized. One can start with more "frame" than fill.

    Shop-fab yer own bits and pieces easier for the weird stuff or those months when pockets are empty. Your pockets. Not the module's.

    Stor-Loc has been good to me.

    I was pleasantly surprised when I got something directly quoted by Lista. Based on some of the resale prices being asked on ebay I thought they'd be more.

    You can find used Vidmars in great condition at 50% of new or buy ugly ones, pressure wash the drawers, pop the handles, sand them and spray them and they look and work like new.
    Next is Lista- I just like the Vidmar design better. After that, you get what you pay for.

    If you can stand the wait and the occasional risk, check out the Government Surplus Sales website, and follow it for a while.
