Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tomcat Handy, sturdy shelves for the cooler in my store
The structure is heavy-duty steel. Assembly is pretty simple. The shelves themselves need extra bracing if you stack bottles on them (which I do). A shelf full of bottles will cause the particle board to sag. I cut a short piece of 1/2" L-stock steel as a support brace in the middle of the shelf and that fixed it. Even with the additional brace it was a better cost than anything else I found.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by john Excellent light/mid duty shelving
Bought this unit to organize small bins of parts. Quick, no tools needed assembly and yet sturdy. Steel frame with lightweight wood shelving insert. The way shelving is supported shelves are sturdy non shifting. Shelf height is adjustable.
Wouldn't think this is for heavy items, 50lbs item is likely a bit heavy for this shelving.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ProcurementRep Shelf is ok.
The vertical supports (4) are actually 2 pieces each that have a clip that holds them together. Issue is if not paying attention during assembly, the pieces overlap in the clip, causing problem with height consistency.
When together shelf looks good, but it does have some flex at the halfway point, where the clips are holding the vertical pieces together.
If possible, I would purchase a shelf unit that has the vertical supports as one piece.

This shelving product is an excellent addition to our garage. It was very easy to assemble, and it is very solid.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TooMuchJunk Disappointing
On the up side, the one I bought came with four plastic "feet" so the metal posts do not rest directly on the floor. I don't see them mentioned in the product description and they are not mentioned in the instructions. There are no caps for the tops of the posts, so you can get scraped by them.
The post couplers were to some extent auto centering (half on the upper post and half on the lower post), but I still needed to do some tapping directly on the couplers to improve the centering.
On one corner, the upper and lower posts partially slid past each other inside the coupling. That could be very bad for structural integrity under load. I am hoping that with it fully assembled, the posts will be held in better alignment.
Some of the beams and braces (the long and short horizontal members) installed nicely: a bit of friction, but still easy to do. Others beams and braces were close to impossible to install and it was hard to see whether they were properly seated. My rubber mallet took some damage and parts bent.
The boards are quite a bit thinner than I think they should be even for just spanning the 18inch depth of the unit. The wood grain finish seems to be mostly to cover up how cheap the particle boards are. The tops of the boards sit below the edges of the beams and braces, so there is an edge that your boxes will scrape against when you take them off the shelves.
I would not trust this unit with a working load close to the advertised capacity, but I don't think that many people will have stuff that heavy to put on the shelves anyway.
I don't know whether better shelves are easily found, but that does not make these shelves good.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JP Avoid if planning on building vertically
The post couplers were nearly impossible to connect the posts together. After bunch of hammering and bent metal I gave up. The paint gunked up on the posts were half the problem. I managed to get one coupler on the bottom post however hammering the top post on only moved the coupler lower on the bottom post.
