    • Heavy but well packed and easy to assemble

      This shelving unit comes flat packed, which means every single piece must be put together. The package is very heavy. I was able to move it inside my house by myself by sliding it across the floor. But then I needed to unpack all the pieces to get it to the desired room. The instructions suggest taking out and counting all pieces prior to assembly and provide a phone number in case of any issues. I don't usually count all the pieces before I assemble, but I did with this one because of how heavy it was. I didn't want to have it half together and have to take it apart again. All the pieces were present. The instructions were all pictures but were very clear. Once all the pieces are laid out and organized in the way they will be assembled, it's pretty easy to put together but does take a bit of time due to how many screws, bolts, assembly pieces there are. I think it took about an hour and a half to lay everything out and put it together. I did put this together by myself so it can be done alone. However, I highly recommend two people if possible because once the shelves are all attached to one of the support sides, it has to be flipped over without destroying it so the other side can be attached. As assembled, the shelf is very sturdy and heavy (it's made of MDF with wood veneer). The wood veneer is high quality and it does look a lot like real wood once assembled. And all the assembly holes are hidden or covered by good quality veneer hole covers so it doesn't look like you put it together yourself. I recommend this shelf for the overall quality and price. It's a great size, and I have no problem using it for books, a printer, and other decorative items.

    • Beautiful bookcase

      We bought this bookcase to complete our living room, and I was pretty anxious to match the color with the rest of my furniture. The description of the product says coffee bean, and as we know coffee beans are different colors. The picture on the website shows a brown greenish color. I was pleased to discover that it's definitely a nice dark brown, and it's easy to assembly. A small inconvenient thing was that it came with 5 special screws missing that are hard to find.

    • Good from afar; Far from good

      I am surprised by the amount of positive reviews for this bookcase. I guess you get what you pay for. As soon as the box was opened I knew I was not going to be pleased with the product. I didn’t realize the entire case was made of veneer. Not just veneer, but extremely cheap looking veneer. The craziest part is that to ‘finish’ the bookcase they provide you with stickers – yes stickers that “look” like wood to place over the screw/bolt holes. The whole assembly was very **** like. We ended up keeping them because they weight over 70 lbs a piece and it wasn’t worth bothering to return them. I’m sure they will find a spot in the donation pile within the year. Until then they are good storage for the basement. That being said if you don’t care about a cheap looking bookcase and like the style it is decently sturdy and the delivery from Overstock was timely.

    • sturdy

      This is a nice study piece,looks great, just right for the living room. I would like to say that, not being wood, the finish can get scratched pretty easily. Might not be the best if you have kids or dogs. And have a power screwdriver when you assemble it or it will take a long time to assemble.

    • Oh boy

      OK, so the assembly is a beast. No exaggeration here. There were several things wrong with the pieces: 1) you are required to screw in the shelfs to the vertical supports but the supports lacked pre-drilled holes which means you need a drill. Now, you dont need a super powerful drill since its not real wood and kinda soft. But, too tough to get through with just a screw driver. 2) One the very top shelf, the pre-drilled holes that were included were actually on the wrong side, which means you need to drill holes on the other side with a drill. 3) i was missing 2 of those wooden plug things that keep the pieces in the right spot but once drilled in it didnt really matter. So, 4-5 hours later, the finished product looks pretty good. I like the dark color and it looks more expensive than it actually is. It seems sturdy, i have about 80 books on it and no problem. Because its cheapo pressed wood, the thing scratches extremely easily. Its on par with ikea/target stuff so just be careful with it, especially when putting it together. Overall, i give it 3.8 stars and Ill round that up to 4.0

    • good product, terrible instructions

      Overall, this shelf is as stated and of good quality for the price. Beyond moving into a new house recently, my husband and I are no strangers to putting together many pieces of household furniture, using basic tools, and following instructions. The instructions for this item were terrible and the pieces were difficult to put together with the hardware provided. Once finally assembled, the shelf serves the purpose nicely in our great room since it is pretty tall but is a little shaky as far as sturdiness overall. The wood and finish seem good.

    • So nice to have

      Love the way it looks in the family room, it makes the room look so elegant. The style and all the shelves that we need as a family to store all are collection of books. Very sturdy and easy to set up. The price is wonderful, better than any other bookcase I've seen so far, and I'm so glad I found it. I highly recommend it.
