I have bought these literature organizers from this company in the past and they were excellent. This one is is very inferior, and the particle board is warped so the sides don't line up. I am using it though as it is too much trouble to return, and needed it for class papers. Since it does not hold much weight it works, but it cheaply made and not worth the price.
How accurate was the sizing? correct
Please tell us about the quality of the product. poor
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? no- warped
I knew based on the price that this would be on the low-market end of the spectrum - but I never expected CARDBOARD; and I'm not talking heavy-duty cardboard, either. The top, bottom, and sides are laiminated, compressed particle board - but the rest is CARDBOARD. I had expected the type board which is used for 'peg-boards' - but never CARDBOARD. If the mentioned in the descriptive text that a major construction component was CARDBOARD - then I THINK I would have seen that ... but don't recall seeing any such mention.
I don't think it's worth the hasstle of returning it - but I figure I'll be pulling it apart to replace the CARDBOARD with luan before a year is out.
"Corrugated fiberboard" is a fancy name for cardboard. The top, bottom, and sides are made of a wood laminate but the shelves, dividers, and back are cardboard. Not worth the price. Some of the laminate on the edges split and flaked off when putting it together. Hopefully it will stay together and the shelves will not bend for at least a few years. We'll see! Not worth the hastle of returning it.
Did the product fit true to size? yes
How is the quality of the product? poor
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes
I purchased two of these organizers for my English classroom. I was stunned to find that both the picture and the description grossly misrepresent the actual product. The back and all inserts (vertically and horizontally) are made of CARDBOARD (not fiberboard, as described). They are already warping and falling apart (my husband finished putting the first one together 5 minutes ago). I would have considered paying $35-$40 dollars for these, but certainly not $**** per unit. Unfortunately, I don't have the time (or money!) to return these. Otherwise, I'd be shipping them out....
