Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by END123 Nice looking, but installation mishaps.
I ordered many items from this line to convert a spare bedroom into a walk-in closet. Two of these, specifically. The installation instructions assume that you are installing everything flush against the wall, which is not the case with most people, as I have moulding along my floor. It took many adjustments to get all of this to fit together properly because of this. I had to remove the two towers this connected to from the wall to reposition everything a couple times to get it right. And, again, because it is unable to sit flush against the wall, the brackets included to secure it to a wall stud would not work. I had to go purchase large shelf brackets that extended far enough out to reach it for support. When finished, it all looked great, but you need to piece everything together carefully before you permanently affix anything to any walls. The second corner I did worked out ok using this method, just be careful it doesn't fall over in the meantime.

The Impressions Corner Shelf Kit was a little tricky to install due to the non-square corners of the wall. If you're doing the Corner Rounder Closet Rod you should definitely do the Corner Shelf Kit to finish it properly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CajunKev Much More Difficult Install than Corner Units
I installed this corner shelf unit with two corner rounder rods underneath. I recommend this product for more adept DIYers because the install is much more difficult than using the large corner units instead. I used corner units in my last house and they're a piece of cake. Here, the wife wanted more hanging room so I went in this direction.
The challenge is that this kit is designed to be hung between two towers on adjacent walls and so those towers must be exactly 28" away from each wall. It's very difficult to get those towers exactly 28" too because you have to mount the towers to the wall first, you're working in tight quarters and almost certainly your drill holes on the wall will pull the tower unit slightly one way or the other. It's also possible your walls may not be entirely plumb. The recommendation here is to get the mounting screws for the towers in place but don't firmly affix them to the wall until the corner shelf in is place. You want the tower mounting screws to be in the wall but a little play in the towers is helpful if, when the tower is built, you are running a bit short on space. If the towers are not firmly affixed to the wall yet, you'll be able to push them out the short distance you need to make the corner shelf fit. But do put the mounting screws in so you've got the stability you need to install the corner shelf - just don't screw them in all the way.
Another issue has to do with aesthetics. I have baseboard in my closet, as you likely will, so the towers will butt up against this baseboard on the floor of the closet and thus your towers will sit out from the wall maybe 1/4". However, the shelf kit has brackets that need to be affixed to the wall, so this pulls the shelf back towards the wall. The end result is that the shelf doesn't fit flush with the front of the towers. How does it look? It does look OK, especially if you are consistent about doing all your towers and corner shelves in exactly the same way.
So, with all these caveats in mind, I wish you good luck should you choose to install these.

Good enough shelf in terms of cost, quality, strength. This is not what I call an add-on shelf. I was able to find a way to make it work but this shelf needs to be installed when you are building your new closet, not after.

Does NOT work as a shelf for the corner unit. I wanted a sturdier unit so I used the corner units and cut this up so I could double stack my books. Wish it had mentioned it on the package.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cep6666 Not a one person install
Trying to install this to the two base units is definitely a 2 person job especially since most walls are not perfectly square. I damaged one shelf and got a knot on my head trying to put the upper most one on. Do not try and install if you've already secured your base units to the wall as one reviewer suggested as it takes numerous adjustments to get it to fit property. Fortunately I was able to use the damaged shelf as the bottom shelf and the damage is not seen.
