Personally, I just upgraded from a Harbor Freight lift-top to a Cornwell 57" unit. Had no qualms with the Harbor Freight unit aside from the slides on the drawers were a pretty light duty. I needed the space and got a second hand Cornwell box for a clean $3000. As with Snap-On, the slides on them are super sturdy and each one of the could support my weight if I felt brave enough to risk it. Harbor Freight boxes are decent, but the quality is consumer grade at best. If you have a lot of heavy tools, I would look for something professional or industrial grade, like Snap-On, Cornwell, MAC or Matco, etc. Otherwise, any of the consumer grade companies like Craftsman, Husky, Harbor Freight and the like will do you just fine. Just make sure to take care of them, as the slides and caster wheels wear out a little easier than the expensive boxes.
