Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ErinMarie Perfect for all storage!
I was very happy with these shelving units. I assembled four of them with the better part of a Sunday and took my basement from an unorganized mess, to a clutter free space. Not only do they look great, but they allow flexibility in the shelf space. My only suggestion is to make sure you have a rubber mallet. It will make the job a lot faster!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BrooklynRobert OK, but
Somewhat disappointed, although OK. Purchased two of these units. Had purchased a few several years ago and very satisfied. However there has been a bit of a drop off in quality - fit is not quite as good, finish on steel frame appears less robust, on line assembly instructions (which I did not need) showed a joining piece which was not part of package and is not needed, and a few other minor issues. Also very cheap looking (paper?) laminate on shelves serves no purpose other than to make it look cheap - no covering on shelves when previously purchased.
Why cheapen a good product? Many will pay for quality. If prices go up, they go up.
Still very good product, but trend is wrong.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnnMarie Very sturdy shelf
This rack is very well engineered and easy to assemble. It stands square without any sway under weight. I would highly recommend it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Crey23 Very disappointed
Bough this system to finally finish unpacking my garage. When I assemble the unit, I learn that we were missing a long cross-bar support. I've been trying to reach customer service all day without any success. I should have known there going to be issues when the first thing I see when I opened the box and an Orange letter saying to not return to vendor, but to give them a chance to make it right.
Who know how long I'll be stuck with this. If get no response from them in the next three days, I'll take it down and take it back to HD.

I picked this unit for an indoor spare room, storage of camping equipment etc. I had it shipped, but at 100lbs I would suggest P/Up instead. The box was dropped on its corners more than once so the particle boards were damaged and chipped. The metal supports are rather thin and bend and twist quite easily. It is easy to assemble, and solid and stable. I will be replacing the boards with plywood, but that will require complete re-assembly, you cannot just slide in a new board. Also, big deal here, IT SMELLS. They call it "off gassing", I call it "keep it out in the garage". After a few weeks of open windows and an exhaust fan I barely notice it, but it comes from the particle boards, probably not good chemicals to live amongst. I recommend it for garage storage, not indoors unless you replace the shelves with wood.

Compared to the units sold previously, the new ones seem to be not as well made -- the particle board is only 3/8 inch now compared to almost 1/2 inch previously, the particle board seems to have ink pressed into the surface to make it appear 'woodgrain', which only makes the shelf stink badly, and lastly, the paint is a not smooth enamel gray, but a grainy powder black -- my guess it will mar easily compared to the previous enamel. But, as some one else has stated, you can replace the supplied particle boards with 1/2 inch plywood and still have a sturdy, very functional shelving unit at a cost substantially less than most others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joseph Perfect size
I was a little worried after reading reviews about the difficulty of putting this together because of the couplers. Imagine my surprise when my 6 year old granddaughter and I put this together in about 12 minutes with no trouble whatsoever. My only reason for rating four star instead of five is the thickness of the shelves, but I understand the cost of shipping and the average use of the unit. I will replace two of my shelves with 3/4" plywood because I will be storing some heavy tools on those shelves. This is a good product and one of the easiest things I have ever put together in the last 40 years.

I have no complaints with this shelf. I hanged this in my garage. I bought a 16 gauge bracket about 2ft a side. bolted to the ceiling studs and so far so good. hopefully this helps out for later.
