Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RockGiant Good size
Good size is about all I have to say good about this product.
Watch out for splinters, damaged hardware (screws & shelving clips) and for damaged particleboards. You can't double check this before the delivery guy runs away so do it as soon as you can afterwards.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dbeautyangel looks nice from afar
Nice shiny dark wood color. Its not as tall as it looks in the photo.....comes to about mid chest height and I'm 5'4". Looks sturdy enough for the books in our office BUT it has chips all over the edges-poor quality. its not easy but not super hard to assemble. Took less than an hour. But be careful because its not sturdy and will chip when you use an electric screwdriver. I would not put this in my living room but for an office break area it will be ok.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TerryZak Good Value, and Looks Good Too
The bookcase is made of particle board, with thin oak veneers. The finish is pretty good overall, as is the assembly hardware.
What I struggled with was the back panels for the case. They had a very high-gloss finish, and in order to fit into the shipping box, folded into four sections. Since there is a partition in the center of the bookcase, you'd only be able to fasten the outer and middle seams, leaving the center seams on each half of the bookcase unsecured.
I thought that would have looked cheesy, and so I purchased a 4 x 8 sheet of medium oak paneling from Home Depot, cut it to 45" lenght, and then fastened with nails. It looks much better in my opinion, and was certainly worth the additional $30 or so.
But overall, for a bookcase that can be assembled at home in short order, and shipped to one's home, it's a pretty good deal.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Amanda Not so good
Very cheap material for close to $300. Instructions said their was labeling but nothing on actual pieces so I was left up to guessing. The material used as the backboard feels and looks like tapped cardboard, extremely cheesy. Probably wouldn't buy anymore products from them

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by STKs Not worth the price
Not worth the price. I purchased two shelves and both had multiple chips on panels and the fascia on some of the shelves needed to be re-glued. The fascia was not attached to the shelf and you could see where it had been glued and nailed- in fact, the nails were still in the fascia. For this price, I shouldn't have to grab a bottle of elmers glue and do repairs on a brand new product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WeeWillie Good Value - Arrived Damaged
The bookcase has a nice appearance, appears sturdy but it hasn't been loaded yet, and was fairly easy to assemble. However, one of the shelves arrived with the facing broken off. Customer service readily agreed to ship a new shelf - time will tell how quickly it arrives.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ozzie this package was all it said it was and looks great in our living room.
We shined it up after it was assembled, and actually could have used something a little larger.... maybe 5 ft x 5 ft... But, worked perfect for what we wanted... a decent, sturdy bookcase for our book collection.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by baldy not impressed with quality of product
Product is under par and not worth the dollars i paid for it. 2 unassembled pieces in the box when recieved. Not broken from shipment but rather poorly put together, not properlly glued and fastened during assembly. I was able to repair both pieces better than original assembly process. Not impressed and as others have stated , there was no assembly instructions. Luckly i've put many items together so it was easy for me to figure out.
