This week I received and built the new NEXXT 5-Tier leaning wall shelf in my home. WOW! It is totally awesome and easy to assemble and use. I have had a need to display some pictures and other things that are near and dear to me. This shelf system was the perfect addition to my room for those items. The box size surprised me, since I thought the shelf would be much larger. In fact, once assembled, it has a great size and shape that I wouldn't have guessed from being disassembled in the box. The 5 shelves are broken down into 4 parts each. There is the shelf bottom, a flat, black on both sides, bottom piece with predrilled holes for the screws. Next, each shelf has a standard sized back and then two sides, each sized differently for a total of 5 shelves. This assembly took some patience and time. Here's why... The screws are small and it requires some steady and patient hands. I would NOT recommend using a powered screw gun or drill on this. You may run the risk of overturning or stripping the screw holes or worse, you might break something. Each shelf only supports a max of 10 pounds, so you can understand that they're somewhat gentle. That said, it takes more time to manually screw each one in. Once done, you'll be glad you took the time to do it right because the unit is awesome!
First I assembled each shelf and then I assembled the two support rails. Once done, I laid the right side rail on my table and screwed in the right side of each shelf to it. When those were done, I flipped it over and screwed in the left side rail. Boom! Done! Very easy to setup and instantly use in your home.
The parts are all quality and nothing was damaged or missing in the box. I'm going to buy 2 more of these for other rooms in my home.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz It's 'Ok'
Excited to get a 'modern' looking set of shelves for my wife, the excitement quickly subsided once we opened the box.
The packaging is ok as there was no damage to any of the 26 pieces. All screws were accounted for. Assembly time is about 30 minutes with the user only needing a small philips screwdriver to complete all of the assembly. The instructions are the low point of the whole purchase. One small piece of paper - no step-by-step, part numbering/letting, etc. Just a couple basic illustrations of the parts all going together. Though I was fairly easily able to figure out what was going on, one could EASILY invert a shelf or support piece and the whole assembly would be far from correct.
Words of thought. The shelf panels (flat ones): The countersunk holes are on the bottom side (*the side the screws go thru into the sides & back of the shelf side/rear rails. The side rails of the shelves: The countersunk holes are towards the inside of the shelf so that the screw that goes thru them is flush when installed.
Installation thoughts: I would not suggest using this on hardwood, tile or laminate floors. There is nothing securing the feet to the floor and I found that the whole shelf unit slid down the wall onto the floor with the slightest bump or dog tail wag as it walked by. There is nothing built into this to secure it to the wall. Being here in California, the first minor earthquake will cause this shelf unit to fall to the floor. At least on carpet, the friction of the carpet to the bottom of the shelf uprights will aide in it staying upright during general use conditions.
The finished product looked 'Ok', Not what I expected for the price as I really feel that this product is over-valued for what the user receives. Yes, it work's ok. I have to be a bit critical of quality, installation & price and go with 2-stars this time. Better instructions for a novice assembler lower retail valuation & a factory-built way to secure this to a wall would have taken this into a 4-star product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by inka1941 Perfect shelving system.
When we moved two years ago we had to get rid of over half of our possessions, we were moving into a house that was half the size and with very limited storage space. This shelf is perfect to hold all our electronic equipment, the print, printer paper, modems, and all the charging apparatus for the various electronics that need charging. The wider shells are perfect for the print and the printer paper, the more narrow shelves will easily hold the rest of the smaller items and it will allow us to have almost all of the lector if equipment in one place. The shelving arrived by private carrier quickly and was easily put together by my husband in a couple of hours while watching a football game. I would definitely recommend this shelf.

This bookshelf looks so much nicer in the photo, but looks can be deceiving! Its rickety and awkward to put together. It looks cheap once assembled and there were nicks and chips out of it everywhere, defiantly not the quality you would expect for the price.

I have had such good luck with everything from Home Depot, I trust that they sell quality products. I never thought they would carry such a low grade item.
The wood split in 3 places when screwing together, pieces were chipped, and after reassembling many times, I can not get it to stand straight. Material is very flimsy - would not recommend purchasing.
Wish I would have only paid half of what I did for it - not worth the full price at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rlcress DO NOT BUY THIS!
This product is very flimsy, and not well made. The pieces were not finished nicely, there were chips out of the wood, and one piece was split almost in half. The screws sent for the sides were too long and poked right through to the other side. At $80 this shelf was a complete disappointment. I'm sending it back. I would have preferred to give this a zero star rating.
