It is VERY difficult to find a bookcase these days, so I was thrilled when I saw this advertised on Overstock. I ordered the Ergocraft Laguna 3-shelf Wood Veneer Bookcase and it arrived promptly. Then I opened the box....the materials used to make the bookcase were poor quality, the wood on the back of the bookcase was cracked, and the veneer was chipped on the shelves and the top. I would have sent it back but my husband said it would cost more to send it back than it was worth. I put it together and will use it, but I won't put it out where people will see it. What a shame - can't anyone build a reasonably priced, quality bookcase anymore?!!!
- Did the product fit true to size? The product is size-wise, as specified.
- How is the quality of the product? Product quality is very poor. Veneer is chipped and thin. The materials used were extremely marginal.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? No. Upon arrival there were flaws in the finish, the wood on the back of the bookcase was cracked, and the veneer was chipped.
