I've had this for a few weeks now and so far so good. Bought it for my covered back porch to put my portable stereo and a few other items on and it is sturdy. I've read some of the reviews that said some had received their's just thrown into the box w/ loose pieces. Mine came wrapped in some plastic and only one nut had come off a shelf. But no complaints here. I'm am very satisfied for what uses I bought it for.
