Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kelntomh Pretty nice product but instructions are bad
In general, this product looks nice, is priced decently and you can do a pretty nice job organizing your closet with it, but watch out for the bad instructions. If you are not careful you have to rip apart the lower base unit if you are going to install drawers. If you locate the bottom shelf where they say to, you won't be able to put in a small drawer plus two large drawers or three large drawers because they tell you to nail the bottom shelf in place with the gussets and then fasten the unit the wall. Once you do you cannot adjust the shelf up or down to make room for the drawers. I hope this is the only issue with the instructions.

Cam breaks when slightest pressure from screwdriver is applied. Eight of the phillips head inserts broke, jeopardizing the structural stability of the entire unit. Looked to be a fairly affordable and nice upgrade for my daughter's closet.... I ended up having to drill small pilot holes and put in wood screws to keep the unit from collapsing. Overall not the best choice in closet organizers. I should have taken it back but by the time I get to the nearest HD store my time and gas was worth more to me. My husband encouraged me to return but now it is firmly together and will work fine. I would have expected more from Closetmaid....

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nina79 Cams break very easily, structure is wobly & unusable unless anchored to wall
I bought a whole set of items from the selective units and was disappointed to find that the cams break very very easily. I would venture to say that more than half of my cams broke while trying to tighten them. I changed my approach and applied less pressure and that did not help. The breaking of the cams makes the unit extremely wobbly and I would not have been able to use it if it was not anchored to the wall, there is no way it would stand alone and not fall over if not leaning on something or anchored. Once anchored to the wall it does look like a nice unite. I think maybe some of their other lines have different cam locks that will not disintegrate while tightening them. Good luck.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sasmih nice master closet!
We got two of these as part of our master closet renovation. Very easy to put together and install. We've got drawers in the bottom half of each one, and then hanging in the top half, so we didn't end up using all the shelves.
I don't like the closet poles that come with it this set - they extend to fit the space, so there is a spot where the two pieces overlap where the hangers catch when you try to slide them. I got some regular round poles and cut them to fit instead.
One thing to note if you are putting in drawers - you need one of the narrow shelves on the bottom - not the shelf that the directions tell you to use - read the drawer installation instructions before putting the shelves together!

Makes a huge difference in storage options for our reach-in closet. Easy to assemble and looks good. Thanks to previous poster for heads up on lower drawer installation, what a pain it would have been to re-do lower shelf after installation, read drawer instructions first. Lighter "Cherry" color does not really match other Cherry furniture, but no big deal behind doors. Also wish gaps on door and drawer accessories could be smaller and more even, just me being picky.

I would totally recommend this closet system to any and every one. Easy instructions very estetic to the eye. Very beautiful. It's hundreds cheaper than the other systems that I priced at other stores and sites. It's very easy to put together, I usually have help with these types of projects, but my spouse being disabled now, I had to challenge myself. I put it together for my mom. Soon I will do one for myself.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Userlevel6 you get what you pay for, maybe slightly less.
product quality is not what I expected, thought the fiberboard would be more sturdy than it appears. the edges are worn from riding inside the box or something, meaning the fiberboard is showing through. it makes me understand why the white version appears more popular. it is quite sturdy now that it is mounted, but the appearance is not great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AgalfromCal Looks great, goes up fast
This went together quickly and looks fantastic. I bought two and placed them side by side in the center of a walk-in closet and it gives me tons of space to stash things. The rods attach in a way that hangers can slide all the way across without stopping which was a must for me. Very nice product!
