New cabinets--cabinet guy is using Accuride Drawer Slides #3832. Anyone have any experience with them? I have always been told that Blum was the best brand. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Accuride makes a good quality product that will last a lifetime, but I personally prefer Blum hardware. If your drawer boxes will be dovetailed, the bottom mounted slides such as the Blum Tandem or the Accuride Eclipse would be better choices so as to not hide the dovetails. I also like having a slide with built-in shock absorbers, such as the Blumotion. These cost a bit more than the slides that you mentioned, but I have them in my own kitchen and they work great.

Agree with Joe. Accuride are fine quality slides but might seem more utilitarian where the Blum undermounts, especially with Blumotion, are more or a luxury product.
The accuride 3832 is a good product, full extension slide. This is acceptable for high quality cabinets of utilitarian construction. If your cabinets are really high end and have dovetailed drawers, like mentioned above, use blumotion hidden slides. But otherwise I think accuride 3832 is the best value around and the most appropriate choice for your project. You lose drawer space with the under-mount slides. They take up quite a bit of drawer space at the bottom because of the way you have to make the cabinet and the drawer. Also add $30 per drawer over the cost of accuride 3832.
