    • Good looking, solid book shelf.

      I bought three of bookcases to make a library wall. It is a very solid and heavy product. The paint job is superb. It took some time to assemble but the instructions are clear and all pieces can be aligned. It is solid wood, not particle board stuff. It should be able to hold many books without bending. Overall, very happy with the product!

    • Looks nice, pain to put together

      I took off two stars just for how much of a pain it was to put together. There are a number of parts that don't fit together well. The camlocks barely fit into the holes for them, one of them I had to tap into place with a mallet and screwdriver because of its awkward location. The worst part was the tabs that hold up the adjustable shelves. They don't just fit in the holes. I had to hammer them into place with a mallet... a very awkward job considering they're only like 1.5cm long and I value my fingers.

    • Beautiful piece of furniture

      This bookcase is very well made. It is very sturdy, with no fear of it falling over or shelves sagging. I had no idea that rubberwood was this strong and beautiful to look at.

    • Solid, elegant, and easy to set up

      The wood is a very dark brown, close to black, and the shelves are sturdy. I bought these specifically to store a lot of books, most of them coffee-table size or hardcover, and I'm happy with the way it worked out: there is plenty of room on each shelf for the tallest of my books. The best part is that the shape of them allows the shelves to sit up against each other with no gaps. I built four of these for a home office, and I have these suggestions when building: 1) tap the locking cams down into the circular holes--as they grip they will rise up a bit so it is better if they are deeper into the wood 2) you definitely want to secure the bar at the top that screws into the top and the sides - it adds a ton of stability to the case 3) I found I had to tap the shelf pegs in with a hammer, and that they were created with some rough edges. Rather than try to file down the edges, I just angled the peg upwards for the first couple of hammer taps, then it straightened itself and went in. 4) the backing comes folded in half, but it's not cheap stuff--it's just very thin wood. I strongly recommend using it to reinforce the frame. 5) the instructions tell you to use an allen wrench to tighten the cams. I found that this method sucked and was hard to do: instead I just used a flathead screwdriver and found it would turn the cams with very little effort 6) The cams will turn just a tiny bit past 180 degrees (a half circle): do not over-tighten them There are enough extra parts in the bag to cover mistakes and broken parts - I appreciate that, even though all that happened to me was one broken cam lock. I would definitely buy these again.

    • Excellent quality

      I am a tough customer to please. I am constantly accused of being OCD. Simply put, this piece is top-quality. It looks like an $800 book shelf. It has very deep shelves, and is about 7+ feet tall. I'm 6' 1", and used to being able to see the tops of furniture. It's very nice to have such a quality piece. Every part of it is wood, down to the backdrop (the backdrop is about a centimeter thick or so, but is solid wood). VERY heavy, and just quality. Thank you overstock! By the way...I bought the plymouth desk to accompany this bookshelf. They look excellent together! Top-notch.

    • Sturdy and Stylish

      Once it's put together, this is a sturdy and very stylish piece of furniture. The assembly process isn't difficult, just a bit tedious. It took me about an hour to put the bookcase together. Just be careful to make sure to pound the pieces together snugly before you twist the lock nuts. If you don't, small gaps will remain between pieces that could affect the stability. It would also be a good idea to have a second person to help, since these big boys weigh about 140 pounds when built. Overall, this is an excellent product and a good value. As always, the Overstock delivery service is quick and the packaging leaves you with enough foam and cardboard to build a weekend retreat.

    • Nice solid furniture

      I ordered two bookcases, which arrived very quickly and intact as has been my usual experience with Overstock orders. These are large, heavy bookcases. They are solid, and the finish is beautiful. It is the darkest brown, and it blends with the black-finish furniture also in my study. They really look black unless the sunlight is on them, when you can see the brown come through. Not difficult to put together, and they really don't look like furniture that we assembled at home! I've come to expect strong chemical smells from imported home-assembled furniture, but these bookcases had none so we were pleasantly surprised. Nice, tall, solid bookcases that look like they came from a fine furniture store, and the style will blend with anything from modern to traditional. I'm thinking of ordering one or two more!

    • Terrific!

      This bookshelf is a sturdy, attractive piece with huge space (my tallest books can stand up) between shelves. They are also quite deep. It took me and one friend about an hour to put together. It is heavy and takes two people to move the boxes and to stand up.

    • Solid bookcase

      Great tall bookcase. Quality wise this thing is great. Color looks black but is a dark espresso. Only way you'd know is direct sunlight. It matches black trimmed seating very well. The only cons are very minor and come with putting it together. 1. The little inserts that the shelfs rest on, some of them had the heads just a little big for the holes. It's just a little piece of metal that is either from where they cut the pieces or hammered them in manufacturing. Easily fixed with a file or with a pair of wire cutters. Note I only had this problem on 3 of them. The rest went in (with some twisting). 2. The back piece is folded in half (for shipping) and taped on the backside. Problem with this is that the foam that it's packed in stuck to the tape inbetween the two pieces. Took a couple minutes to get it all off. Overall it's a great book case and a great value. The two very minor problems shouldn't keep you from getting this if you like the style.

      • Hello vacjoc, you can buy two separate units and place them side by side. Hope this information was helpful. Thank you for shopping with us!

    • Can three of these bookshelves be placed side by side with any gaps?

      • Hello oceanbayview! . It has four open shelves that can be adjusted to different heights, while the second shelf up from the bottom is fixed to the frame. Thanks for shopping with us!

    • I want to put a TV on one shelf - what is the inside dimension between the sides?

      • A TV won't fit, unless its a 9" one. The width is about 30 inches, height about 10 inches between shelves. This is a bookshelf and I am able to fit two wine racks in it, as well as momentous from sporting events, beer steins, bobble heads, and sport team blankets.

    • How deep are the shelves?

      • I'm going to guess about 16 inches. Nice depth. Holds a wine rack comfortably, so the length of a bottle, with the top of the neck sticking out just a bit.

    • Is the back-piece the usual cheap, cardboard-thick (sometimes cardboard itself with vinyl on it) like on Ikea bookshelves and most others, or is it actual 1/4" thick wood paneling like the Avington Bookshelf from Target? I was pleasantly surprised with that shelf because of that and will now buy nothing with the thin back panel, so I'd like to know. Thanks.

      • Than ks for your interest, unfortunately this information is not available from the manufacturer.

      • It is not cardboard, and perhaps is cheap, but really nice looking back. It is wood panel, two pieces taped together from the back, attaches by small screws.
