I usually try to buy shelving at Costco for this reason. Every time I buy a HDX shelf set there is ALWAYS a surprise when it come time to assemble it - and it ALWAYS goes unnoticed until you COMPLETELY unpackage the shelving.
I suspect that a LOT of people find a fix or a work-around to remedy the problem rather than re-package everything and take it back to Home Depot for an exchange. Based on my experience, I would be afraid that the replacement shelves would also have some sort of issue..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fel EXCELLENT VALUE for garage/utility shelves!!
I just put this together today and am very pleased with the product. I love the height and the option to make my utility room more functional and less messy. Yes there was some excess plastic on some of the pieces but when I turned the piece and pushed hard enough they would go through.
I will be going back to buy 2 more. Can't get $30 for 5 shelf unit anywhere else.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nannyisme Would not purchase again
I bought this on sale. And would have never considered it at full price now that it is fully assembled. It wouldn't have been worth the full price. It was not the easiest shelving unit to put together. Instructions state no tools required, but I needed a hammer and a utility knife.
It is fairly sturdy, but this until is covered in little plastic apendages that needed to be cut off (see photos). On one of shelves, 2 of the 4 openings for the plastic rods had to be reshaped with a utility knife for rods to fit/hold shelf.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jlnh Good Value
Has quite a few misformed molded plastic pieces, but doesn't affect structurally or cosmetically. Hold plenty of weight and perfectly good for storage. Good value at $30

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alexandriabuyer good value but not perfect
These shelves are inexpensive and provide a lot of storage for the cost. They are relatively quick to assemble...when all the parts fit perfectly. I've found the manufacturing is irregular, and one shelf unit may assemble in five minutes and the next in 20 because the tubes that connect the shelves are misshapen. They also tend to be brittle -- some individual shelves show signs of having been dropped or run into and have lost bits of plastic. Treated with care, they are fine. Finally if you store heavy boxes on them for several months, they will buckle a bit, but not come apart entirely.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AB1 Two sets had missing and defective parts
First set of shelves was missing a leg; the second set we bought had 2 legs that were two short and another that had excess plastic from the molding process that it couldn't be used.
Paperwork with shelves said "broken or missing parts - do not return to store" and gives a web site where parts can be obtained "free of charge" - except they wanted to charge me $12 to ship one leg!
Clearly there is no quality control - the shelves are sturdy once assembled but if you want to avoid repeated trips to the store, plan to open it and check all the parts in the check out line.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nhguy Easy to build, not for heavy items
Definitely need to be realistic with these plastic shelving units. It's very easy to assemble and seems like an overall solid structure. I'm already starting to see the middle sag a bit with putting 20 lbs worth of items spread across. If this item was say $20 I would have no complaints but for $40? I feel one can build a cheap 2x4 shelving unit easily with some screws. Live and learn. We'll be using this for lightweight items inside the house. Originally was going to store things in the garage but guess that won't be happening now...
