I needed a large, sturdy bookshelf and this fits the bill. It arrived quickly and they were very good about calling ahead so we could meet them. My only complaint is that several of the shelves were pretty badly scratched. They do include a repair marker (to color in the scratches, but it doesn't FILL in the grooves -- you would need putty also), so it must be a pretty common problem. If it is going to display small, decorative items, you might consider something else as the marker doesn't really eliminate the scratches. For books, it works because the shelves are well covered.
