it has lasted for quite a while, if something spills on it get it up immediately, the laminate warps and stains bad. but it is strong as long as you don't pile it with books or other heavy things, and the legs 'look' plastic, not grey like i thought, SILVER PLASTIC.i bought black paint and fixed the color, FOR THE SIZE IT WORKS PRETTY GOOD

I got these shelves for my husband's office, and they look fine in there. They were VERY easy for me to put together on my own (no tools required), and will be just as easy to take apart when we move. The only caveat is that you can tell, at a glance, that the support poles are molded plastic. This doesn't bother us, but I know it would bother some people, especially in a more formal room.
I bought this to put my TV on top but after assembling it, I don't trust it to support my TV. It is extremely wobbly. If you just want it to hold books, it is great. But definitely not a study piece of furniture.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is not the best- you get what you pay for.
This item exactly did what I'd hoped. It provided storage in a closet that had no shelving. I hate the hassle of screwing in brackets and all that. This unit is easy to assemble...I don't think I even needed a screwdriver and I never looked at the directions. It's relatively sturdy. I wouldn't display it in a living room, but it's not bad looking. The shelf spacing is not adjustable. The poles are plastic, but heavy-duty plastic. All-in-all, it's a perfect way to add extra shelves without the hassle of screwing in wall brackets, etc.
