  • books cases

    The steel book cases are 6 shelves and are heavy. I assumed floor assembly and standing upright would be a problem with twisting. Did not happen that way, the assembly method and procedure is very good. Even though they were heavy they did not twist and are very stable.They are loaded with books now.

  • I liked these shelves

    I have read the other reviews and thought them unfair of this product. Any furniture assembly the first time is time consuming and confusing. I bought one of these for my basement and set it up with my 11 year old son in an hour. It came with accurate instruction but because i never did this before they were confusing. If you buy these take your time and read the instructions carefully before screwing anything together, match holes and be cautious of placing parts upside down or backward (because then the holes don't line up). I did find that screwing in the shelves was challenging as they were in an awkward position. Good luck, give yourself plenty of time, this is at least a one hour project if you are not used to assembling furniture.

  • Nice shelves

    Bought 2 of these units for my living room. They were the style, height and look I wanted. I ordered 2 and one unit was damaged in shipment. Overstock replaced the unit promptly as their customer service is the best. I will say there is a diagram of the shelves and parts but no guide to tell you how to put them together. We did a trial and error on unit 1 and it took 2 adult males 3 hours to put it together. Since we knew how it was constructed the 2nd unit took us 30 minutes.

  • This shelf is super sturdy and easy to assemble

    This bookcase is simplistic. Very sound and sleek. It doesn't distract from the treasures I want to display. The directions for assembly are exact. They are what they are. Pay attention to every detail in the step by step instructions using the illustrations. If one screw or push pin doesn't line up, go to one that will. Eventually the bookcase pulls itself together without effort. Pleasant experience from start to finish. Thank you very much. *****.

  • Took 8.5 Hours to Put together all by myself.

    Time consuming to put together when you are by yourself.A bit of trial and error as some screws were difficult to twist but I learned to just try a different screw and aligning holes was a pain but Once I got it completed then it was very sturdy and I fitted most of my Blu-ray Movies on it.Double Stacking and making two rows.I first used a power drill but it stripped the screws so I ended up using different types of Philips Screwdrivers to give me a good arm workout.It took 8.5 Hours to complete but I really needed it.I highly recommend having two or more Persons to help screw in the Shelves.I bought two so each one took 8.5 Hours to complete.The Sand Color one was more sturdier then the Oak Colored one but since I'm only stacking DVD and VHS Tapes and not Books on that one then no Problem.

    • How accurate was the sizing? I had to use tools to bend them into fitting in place.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Some parts had scratches and rust spots and look repackaged.
    • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No, some holes were misalligned but I bent them into allignment.

  • Second hand

    The book shelves came in. We opened it with excitement. We immediately noticed 1 of the bookshelves was a used one and the parts are beaten and we had to find ways to re-assemble a used bookshelf. Screws was missing, it had dents, the connector parts were broken (when they de-assembled it, it got broken I think). What do you do in this situation if you have just moved in and need to finish the work. We assembled the bookshelf with not-so-great thoughts... Ending? It took us hours extra but we made it. Welcome to our brand new second hand book shelf.

  • Worst product purchased in my entire life!

    We have moved an purchased a bunch of furniture (most from and I have never been this disappointed! I got this bookshelf because I thought that if it was made of metal then it will be sturdy and less banged up like some of the particle board crap I've gotten recently. Not only was this not worth the $$, I would like nothing more than to get back 4.5 hr I have spent trying to put it together. Whoever wrote that "all you need to do is read the istructions carefully and it's easy" is either mocking the rest of us or lying and working for the company trying to boost the ratings for this product! There is nothing to read in the instructions "manual." It is a bunch of terrible schematics with 10 "easy" steps that do not talk about the orientation of the products nor do these parts come labeled! The quality of the metal is so flimsy and the holes do not align properly and require a dozen people holding it all together to even screw in one screw (so I figured out after doing it all by myself). Majority of screws require you to get inside the shelves with a flashlight to find the tiniest of the holes that need to be magically aligned and screwed in the most inconvenient angles! Whoever designed this has never screwed in a single screw in his/her entire career! Once it was all finally "put together" it is still flimsy and wobbly (especially since it's so tall) and I regret purchasing this product more than I regret any other decision in my life. Honestly, I wish I could just get my $$ back and throw the thing away, but I just don't want the hassle of taking it apart, shipping it back or putting any more shelves together. It makes me so angry! This product is garbage and should never be sold! If you hate someone, send them this as a gift.

  • Bad choice

    The quality of this product is good overall, my problem with this unit is that the design is missing additional brackets in the back to stablize it. I had to go to Lowes and purchase additional brackets and special screws to hold it against the wall. Without it, the unit can easily top over, which would be bad as I have little kids in the house. The other negative is the instructions is horrible, pictures is unviewable and overall sloppy job. Definitely would not purchase this again.

  • Strong bookcase.

    Very strong and good looking. Read directions vary carefully and you should have no problem assembling them.

  • safco shelves

    The assembly directions for this product are inadequate. I also think that the way the shelves screw into the frame is too difficult to manage. You have to crawl inside the frame to see where the screws go.
