from Del Mar, CA – Verified Buyer

This came with some dings in the shelves but was not worth repackaging it to return it. It is not the sturdiest of bookcases and the back is really just a piece of cardboard. Also the middle shelf is fixed and can't be adjusted. Overall though, for the price, it will serve my needs.

More of a plastic finish.

from Washington

The bookcase came in damaged but it was just way too heavy to try and send back. The finish was more of a plastic and it just wasn't that great of quality.

fits the bill

from Pine Lake, GA – Verified Buyer

Thickest shelves I could find. Nice. Typical assembly, plenty sturdy. The stationary shelf is in a slightly inconvenient spot for the placement of the other shelves.

Nice bookcase

from Katy, TX – Verified Buyer

This is a great bookcase for the price. It is sturdy and holds quite a bit of weight without the shelves bowing.

bookcase rocks!

from Tucson, AZ – Verified Buyer

My husband thought this was going to be a cheap, lousy product as the price was so low. Nope, it's very nice looking and well built. He's sold on Wayfair now.

Serious Quality / Low Price!

from Newhall, CA – Verified Buyer

I have purchased 3 of these over the past 6 months. I'm a pro at putting flat pack furniture together but these are so well made, with excellent directions, and MARKED correctly so that you really can't make any mistakes even if you're a novice! Thick and sturdy. Holds a lot of heavy books. Assembly is quick. You can do it all yourself.
