Overall, very sturdy book shelf that took less than an hour to put together. The one thing I would mention is you are probably better off getting wood glue than using the glue provided in the assembly kit. The glue itself is far from a deal breaker since screws are used to hold the shelves in place. The "fifth" shelf is very small at the top but overall I am able to put up to 40 books on the four shelves below and place a picture at the top of the "fifth" shelf.
I bought two of these and I have to say, first and foremost, they do look good as a pair. I bought one to hold CDs and the other to hold DVDs. If you are getting them soley for DVDs, I would like to point out that the position of the two fixed shelves only give you four shelves that can hold DVDs and two shelves that are left behind that can hold anything CD size. Together they would have given a fifth DVD shelf but separated they leave you with space to be filled in with something other than DVDs. The one for the CDs on the other hand looks great. Boxed sets of CDs just about fit snugly on the shelves but at least they fit. The rear of the cabinets I found frustrating with both. All the holes on the frame did not match up with the back board and twice I went diagonally through the side and out the other end. The CDs/DVDs hide that damage but it is there nonetheless. There are two parts to the back board and I feel that they do not come together well. The packaging prevents a single piece being shipped but I have seen other pieces where the board has been folded rather than be separated. There are no spare bits so make sure you don't misplace one single piece. It does recommend that the cabinet is attached to the wall but with sliding doors, I don't feel that is necessary. One of the reasons for going with sliding doors is that the weight never shifts, unlike opening doors. So in summary, a good product that looks great and is value for money. Just not the best thing designed in the world.
