OK, so the assembly is a beast. No exaggeration here. There were several things wrong with the pieces: 1) you are required to screw in the shelfs to the vertical supports but the supports lacked pre-drilled holes which means you need a drill. Now, you dont need a super powerful drill since its not real wood and kinda soft. But, too tough to get through with just a screw driver. 2) One the very top shelf, the pre-drilled holes that were included were actually on the wrong side, which means you need to drill holes on the other side with a drill. 3) i was missing 2 of those wooden plug things that keep the pieces in the right spot but once drilled in it didnt really matter. So, 4-5 hours later, the finished product looks pretty good. I like the dark color and it looks more expensive than it actually is. It seems sturdy, i have about 80 books on it and no problem. Because its cheapo pressed wood, the thing scratches extremely easily. Its on par with ikea/target stuff so just be careful with it, especially when putting it together. Overall, i give it 3.8 stars and Ill round that up to 4.0
