Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NevadaMike Adequate shelving; nothing special
This is a basic shelving system consisting of particle board shelves, uprights, and horizontal runners that hold the edges of the shelves. All of the uprights and runners are sheet metal, and "16 ga" does not mean "channel" or "pipe" or "tubing". There are no cross-braces, although it is surprisingly stable once assembled. The method of combining two vertical pieces into a single corner "column" is a weak point. Assembly takes two people to intially hold pieces together and to lift the shelves into the frame. For a sheet metal/particle board shelving unit, it's overpriced. It's better than most sheet-metal units, but if you're looking for something industrial grade, this isn't your product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bartle Good enough
The dimensions of these shelves are ideal for our garage, that's why we bought them. They don't hold anything particularly heavy, just household goods, and they hold up fine. The weak point of this unit, and the reason I won't give it 5 stars, is that the vertical supports are 2 3' units stacked on top of each other rather than a single 6' support. The shelves seem stable enough but I certainly won't be putting anything heavy on the top half.
One other thing to mention, I would not recommend buying these shelves to anyone with the intention of disassembling them at a later date. The installation process involved a bit of hammering with a rubber mallet and some of the connectors deformed as a result. It holds together securely but it would be difficult to ever get apart.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dusty Cheap and easy
The shelf unit is rated for more than the shelf will hold. If you buy this unit you MUST buy the center supports for the shelfs that does not come included. I bought the shelving unit because of the price and am buying more because of the price. I can't emphasize enough that you need to have the center support if you plan to put any weight on the shelf.

This unit was very easy to put togeather, it is very strong and looks great. We put it into a closet and made a pantry out of it, Holds lots of grocerys. I would highly recommend this for any storage problem.
