Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mayortiq Experience required!
AFTER completing assembly, the unit was strong and quite suitable. However, assembly was difficult and at least one screw was missing. Parts were small and hard to fit. Before assembly, LEGS were extremely WEAK and subject to easily bend if not handled carefully. Shelves and legs were difficult as they had to be "pressed" vary hard into position in order to align screw holes. I am a "master" carpenter and have personally built several houses; THIS "shelf" however, presented challenges and four full hours of work. When finished, it IS a good product.

These shelves are not only strong and easy to assemble, they are nice to look at. They work beautifully as book shelves in my Living Room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SCD Great extra storage
I actually bought this shelf for extra basement storage for odds and ends. It's great because it has 5 shelves plus the top and bottom shelf. I customized the heights for each one to my specific uses. The assembly was a bit dicey. Make sure to count holes and plan where you want the shelves to go before starting. An extra hand is advised to help align the holes cause that was tricky. the selves are a bit flimsy but once installed the braces and screws make the shelf quite sturdy. Other than that, the shelf has become just the thing I needed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mark1Guy Sturdy when assembled but assembly is slow.
As many reviews of this product have stated, assembly was time consuming. Holding nuts in place was difficult on the shelf edge where the sheet metal is double wrapped limiting the space you have for your fingers. Aligning the holes between the shelves and the posts was more difficult than any other brand of shelving I've assembled. Perhaps the manufacturer could form a blunt point on each of the 80 screws to help with pulling the holes into alignment. I left all braces off until all shelves were loosely in place so I could distort the assembly to get the holes to line up. After the frustration of assembly, the shelving unit is strong and serves my purpose of storing canned food. I found that you can not depend on the braces for assuring that the unit is square when all the screws are tightened. Use a framing square or measure the length diagonally corner to corner from top to bottom. When the lengths are equal the unit will be square. I'm recommending this product because it is the only one I could find in a solid metal shelf with 12" depth. All of the other shelving I researched (except IKEA) where wire shelving or more than 12" deep. The price is very reasonable. I considered shelving from IKEA but it was more expensive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by vgy78uhb cannot recommend
metal extremely THIN on shelves and legs... BENT easily! Bolt holes DO NOT line up with shelves! I threw away two shelves that were bent /warped. plastic leg covers (to protect floor) were straight shapes, the legs were flanged so NO possible way to fit. packages were NOT damaged so they actually manufactured them this way and then wasted metal and packaging to try selling them. The only reason I kept was they were used in a rental garage never to be seen by me again.

It's a good thing we ordered 5 shelving units since the one that left out hardware another one had extra. One box or unit was missing a small brace but again one box had an extra so after assembling all 5 units we had enough parts to complete them all. Many of the shelves were bent but the box was not damaged which tells me the shelves were put in the box bent. One person can assemble them but it's easier with two, real lose and unsteady till you get all the braces on and all the nuts tightened.
Once assembled as instructed they are sturdy for what I purchased them for shelving in the house garage. What is nice they are only 12" wide and 5 feet tall so now you can open car doors and can see what's on the top shelf. Another nice feature by being 12" wide you can see what is on the shelf's and you can custom adjust the spacing so auto detailer bottles fit nicely on the shelf. Another perk is you can flip the shelf so it has a lip and objects will not fall off. They did what I needed and were the size I wanted since a 18" X 70" utility shelf is just to big for a garage if you want to park 2 cars and open the doors.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by qlxeq Low price, cheap material, I don't recommend it.
Product packaging was lighter than I expected. When I unpacked it, the shelves and posts were all very thin and light weight, bends easily. Installation was relatively easy. However, the assembled shelving system was featherweight and can't hold much things. I would not recommend buying it.
