Among the poorer instructions to come from a Chinese factory. Minimal-to-none language, too many schematics crammed into small diagrams, and you have to read thru the entire instruction set to avoid a 50% chance of attaching one of the main base pieces 180 degrees wrong (even if you do, it's not a fatal error). Milling precision is okay, but they make no effort to clean the debris from their dowel holes, etc. If you don't clean them out manually ahead of time, you may have trouble with some of the fasteners. Can be used as a room divider (I am), but the side with the fastener holes uses cheapo decals to cover them up. You may decide it looks better with the holes exposed. Be aware that the color is a very, very dark brown, but not black. The finish is semi-glossy, simulated (and phony-looking) wood grain, which the decals don't really match. Ultimately it's a question of whether you like the design and are okay with a middling-quality finish. I do, and I am, so I'm satisfied. It's sturdy enough for most bookshelf/room divider purposes.
