Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Greguar Light-medium duty shelving, assemble with 2 people
I picked up a couple of these to help organize my storage room and my workshop. They certainly are not "Heavy Duty" shelves, as the steel is far to flexible for them to be considered such. They do work very well for storage bins, tools, hardware and camping gear, as I'm using them.
Assembly is a bit tricky due to the flexibility of the pieces and the sharper than 90 degree angle on the corners. Early in assembly, it's really difficult to keep the unit straight and it twists all over the place, sometimes popping out joints already hammered into place as you hammer others. A second set of hands to hold it straight really helps a lot for the first part of the assembly, and then it starts to straighten out and gets much easier as a few shelves are inserted. The weird angle actually seems to make the joints tighter and more solid once the whole unit is assembled, so I'd imagine that this is a design feature rather than flaw.
When it's fully assembled, the unit feels fairly sturdy and doesn't wobble on a flat floor, but having felt how easily the metal bends, I don't think I'd trust the unit with anywhere near the 4000 lbs claimed. I feel uncomfortable loading upper shelves with any heavy objects, as I can imagine that loading or unloading them might put side strain on the unit, and that seems to be where it's weakest. The lower shelves do feel sturdy enough to support some fairly heavy objects.
For a sub-100 dollar shelving unit this size ($98.97 when I purchased), I expect some quality deficiencies, but all-in-all these look quite nice for the purpose and do the trick quite nicely for helping me organize some chaotic storage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sparky Excellent product
This is some of the best shelving that I have found. They are strong, easy to put together and I can store a good amount of things on them. The shelves are easy to relocate. Just take a rubber hammer and tap upwards on the rivets and you can move them anywhere you want. No wrenches or pliers needed. I liked them so much, that I bought three of them and plan on buying another. A excellent purchase. I found them way in the back of the store. Glad I didn't jump on the first item I saw and took the time to look around.

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.

Not at all easy to assemble because of the poor quality and fit of the rivets.

The price was great and I was able to organize all y books. However hen I tried to set it up so that there were 3 shelves on one side and two on he other side, the braces would not stay put in the 2 help configuration...had to attach the shelf about half way up on the legs for the braces to stay in place...a bit diappoint be cause it looks weird now but it is still usabl!
