This is my 2nd purchase of the same bookcase. I wanted two. The 2nd purchase came with both side panels cracked; but replacement of the pieces was simple enough. Customer representative was helpful and efficient. I did not have to wait long for the replacement pieces to arrive. The bookcase looks really nice and can be easily incorporated into any room. I purchased them for my library and it made the room look organized. There's enough shelf space (depending on how you arrange the height of the shelves) for a good size amount of books. I had a lot of books and they all fit.

These bookshelves are wonderful. Very classy. Lots of room. I love the drawer at the bottom. Some people complained that the back panel is too flimsy but it is undetectable really. The only problem with the flimsy back is that it doesn't add to the bookcase stability. This may become troublesome as it ages. But all in all...a fabulous bookcase at a fabulous price!
I would give it 5 stars as I really like the unit. I bought it for my daughter's room and I love that the shelves are adjustable to accommodate larger books. Two of the adjustable shelves were cracked on one side. Overstock was able to send replacement shelves so it all worked out in the end. Other than the damaged shelves, there was nothing else to criticize. It was easy to assemble.
Our granddaughter loves her new book shelf. My husband put it together with no problem at all. The only part which needs improvement is the back. It's just not good quality, and in order to not see the seams from the front he used black magic marker to cover the seams.
Da Vinci book case is very deep and has wider shelves. We love the color black furniture. It can hold a lot of stuff. It has a bigger space and has a drawer at the bottom. I purchased this product for my son not for books but for all of his assembled Legos, infinity electronic games and what not. My son used the drawers to put all his TV remote, Wii stuff and Pokemon cards. I would highly recommend this product to other customers and buyers.
Nice bookcase. The packaging was great, especially for a product with this much weight and size. There were no damage pieces. I didn't receive the package on schedule but that was due to inclement weather during the week of its arrival. There was one sour note i had concerning this product. The instructions that came with it are really confusing, especially if you are not adept at putting this type of product together.
Sturdy construction and easy to assemble. I agree with others who have stated the 'backing is flimsy" so I decided not to use it. The two fixed shelves and the top provide enough stability the backing is not really required. Other than that I'm impressed with the quality.... a true value for my money. Although my bookcase arrived unscathed I thought the packaging was poor. The ends were well protected but there was very little protection from damage to the sides and a reasonable potential for arriving damaged.
I have not begun using it yet. It's just that I keep getting these pesky emails from overstock that I still need to write a review. It was easy enough to put together with two people. I wouldn't recommend someone trying it alone. The color and finish is good. It is heavy. I hope it holds up better than the pressed board ones I had before. When I've been using them for a month or so, then I'll be able to say.
I really liked the look of this bookcase and didn't care that it was part of a baby collection. It was easy to assemble and didn't have any damage, For a couple of steps I had a little help but it wasn't totally necessary. I am thinking of buying a second one.
