I used this product as well as the 16 inch tower to make my closet space exactly what I needed . I had a large reach in closet with no rod or storage at all. Now I have a large usable organized space. I put both shelving units in the middle to create more of a his & hers type closet. I put everything together myself while my fiance was at work with just a power drill & screwdriver.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NickiG Just what I needed
The unit was easy to assemble. I have an odd shaped closet; its the width of a standard door and about 3.5ft long. I only used rods on one side of the unit since the closet was so small. The unit was delivered with considerable damage. The particle board was very broken in several places. I did not remove the base board molding, just installed at a slight angle. The shelves are not laminate coated on both sides so you can see the particle board on the taller shelves. The shelves are also not adjustable. I included pictures, but I customized it significantly. I purchased a 3 drawer closet maid system from target that had hardware for 3 drawers that fit the width and depth of this system. The target unit is shorter, so I wall mounted the smaller unit. I also, purchased extra shelf pieces and manually fixed them, as the shelf height with the ones provided is very tall.

I got this because my dresses hit the ground in my old closet set up. Currently a middle age female, I put it in myself. The only help I got was a neighbor cut the bottoms of one of the center pieces, and cut the ends of the steel bars so that it would fit better in my closet. This looks fantastic and will be useful for years.

Basic storage allows for much more usable space in your closet. The wife is very happy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bill2011 Good for a small space but consider wider unit
I bought both the 12"-wide T-6 unit for a small closet and the 16"-wide T-3 for a larger closet. I expected them to be about the same because both carried the ClosetMaid trademark. The two turned out to be quite different. The wider T-3 unit (and, apparently, the even wider 25" T-4) was superior in terms of craftsmanship. While the T-6 was made of basic melamine, the T-3 had a white foil finish that was more durable, and the front edges were formed in a bullnose rather than a simple straight cut. The T-6 had only fixed shelves, while the T-3 had both fixed and movable shelves. Finally, the T-3 came with corner bracing (although apparently only made of cardboard), but the T-6 had no bracing at all. Both units will provide you with a useful way of organizing a closet. My advice, however, is that if you have the room, get the T-3. It's better made and gives you a more useable 16" shelf instead of the narrow 12" of the T-6.

Easy to assemble, but using a drill and hack saw will help

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Trackeye Cheaply made
We have bought closetmaid products quite often and always been happy until this unit. It is not the same quality that we have seen in other units (e.g. corner unit we also just bought and it is great). All of the shelves are fixed and they are only 1/2" thick instead of 3/4" as in other units. The underside of the shelves are not finished, so for the higher ones you see the awful particle board they are made of. Also, the shelves are only 11.5" deep, whereas other units are 14" deep. They provide little white covers for the screw heads to supposedly cover them up, but they don't really fit well onto the screw heads and stick out. Overall this unit was a disappointment. I only rated it fair because it comes with the 3 adjustable rods.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FeloniusMonkey Be careful which screws you use!
There are two sets of short flat-head screws in the package. The longer set (of 6) is for connecting the hanging rods to the shelves. The shorter set (of 4) is for connecting the unit to the wall braces. If you use the longer screws on the wall braces, you will poke through the side of the unit and commit some ugliness.
The reason I made this mistake is because the parts listing improperly identifies the hanging rod screws as having a round head. So I basically picked up the first short flat-head screw I saw, and realized afterwards what the problem was.
ClosetMaid was very accomodating, and replaced the said damaged panel.
