Generally a good quality product. I bought one and then bought another. This is a veneer covered composite furniture, of course at this price. Unfortunately the veneer does not cover all sides, the bottoms are left bare. This might not be a big problem unless you are looking from below or worried about moisture, that is why I gave the appearance a 4 star. The shelves are very easy to assemble and very versital to adjust. I have a lot of CD's and DVDs and I got tired of having them scattered all over the house. These shelves provided an economically acceptable solution. Solid wood media shelves are quite a bit more expensive. The standard shipping was surprisingly fast.
