i think the one at lowes is around 1800 you can get one a little smaller for around what your looking to spend. Im going to get one from lowes hopefully soon. They seem like they would last a while with good ball bearings drawers.

I over paid when I started out, bought a large Matco for lots of money. Unfortunately its to small now and no way am I spending that kind of money again on a tool box. Even though I work out of it 10 hours a day.

X2. I own a very similar box and it's real nice for the money... just make sure it has ball bearing slides, they make them both ways.
