Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Josh The supports are tricky
I didn't realize until I tried to assemble them that the vertical supports come in two pieces. Since I didn't have help to assemble them, this was a logistical challenge. What saved the day was using quick release clamps to brace the two vertical supports together using a third support aligned with them temporarily. Then I was able to lean the partially assembled frame up against a wall and install the horizontal supports that braced the vertical supports. The I removed the clamps and continued with the assembly. VERY poor design, splitting the vertical supports in two pieces like that. Once they are assembled, the shelves are fine, but they make it WAY more challenging to assemble than they need to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by POedinTX Heavy duty
I have bought six of these monsters for storing boxes of files for my firm. We have piled up to 40 boxes of heavy files on each until and have not come close to overloading. Very sturdy!!
Easy to assemble (easier with 2 people but not hard with just one). The tools I needed was a box cutter to open the box and a hammer (to make sure rails lock into the support).
Once assembled, these things don't wobble.
I was able to haul 3 boxed of these units at a time in my Tahoe by folding down backseat. However, unless you have large SUV or pickup, you better have someone deliver these to you. Also, unless you are strong like bull, it is difficult to load these into your SUV/truck by yourself (or even put them in your shopping cart) as they are very heavy and unwieldy for just one person to manage in the box.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BAOH IMPORTANT: Use the Home depot version of instructions
These shelves are easy to assemble if you have the proper instructions. the manufacturer has ether outdated or wrong model instructions in the box. After tearing out what little hair i had left on my head and going directly to company website, forget it. My last effort was to check back on line at home depot and they had proper instructions. It's not difficult to assemble, they just didn't show you how to connect the uprights. Thanks Home Depot.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Good, but with one significant flaw
I bought two of these shelves for storage in my garage.
I didn't realize that the uprights were half height when I ordered, so each shelf unit is essentially two units that stack on top of each other. It would be easier to provide one piece uprights (the box is that long anyway) and it would make the shelves much sturdier.
The shelves went together relatively easily. I had to use pliers to unbend some slightly bent brackets, and one shelf didn't fit quite right, but was quickly fixed. I'm concerned about the long term ability of the particle board shelves to not sag under load.
I would give these shelves nearly five stars if the uprights had been one piece.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jcm1 Poor design for assembly
Haven't had a chance to use this product and it may be very sturdy once assembled. However, in order to save money (I assume), the upright supports for the 72"H unit come in 2 pieces each instead of 1 long piece. This makes assembly very difficult as it is hard to keep the unit squared while assembling. If the uprights were each a single piece, it would be much easier to put together. I'm assuming the manufacturer did this in order to use the same pieces for both taller and shorter units, but it makes it difficult for the end user to put together. I'm assuming if you have one of the shorter units that requires only a single upright, it would be much easier to assemble.
