Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ST Great shelves, with a little modification
So, I got this advice from a reviewer on Lowes and thought I should share. I bought them from Home Depot as it was closer to my house.
I have already installed five of these shelves, four 17.6 x 7.75 and a 35.4 x 7.75. Pictures are attached. Here is what I did differently to make these shelves sturdy and avoid bending (drooping).
First things first, avoid the plastic hardware that comes with it. The only hardware I used from this kit were the wooden screws for the stud I used for 2 of the 5 shevles. Where studs are not available, the plastic bolts are supposed to be used. Instead, spend a few more bucks and get you some toggle bolts. I got this 25 box set of 1/8in by 2in from home depot.

These bolts cost $5.21 at Home Depot. They are metal and a lot stronger than the plastic things that come with the shelf. They also allowed me to only place 4 bolts into the bracket instead of using all 10 holes. *Note: toggle bolts are one time usage and make rather large holes. A little patching will fix that if you remove the shelf*
Second, and may be the deal breaker for some, I put the shelves on upside down, requiring the two screws to attach the shelves to the bracket, to be placed on top. This places the stregnth on top of the metal bracket instead of pulling it below. Most of my holes were covered by the items I placed on the shevles. For the one screw that shows, I placed a little pure white paint on top of the hole and it blends in. As you can see from the pictures, I have many trophies on the shelves. Behind my Avengers bobble heads, I have a collection of Coke glasses. I haven't figured out what to do with them yet, so for now they are kept safe there. Point is, there is easily more than 10 pounds on my long shelf. Take my advice that I stole from a Lowes reviewer, and you to will find satisfaction in these attractive shelves.
I will be installing two 23.6 x 10.2 very soon in the same way.

Easy to install. Just what I needed. Would recommend to other buyers. Not deep enough for a dinner plate if using in the kitchen.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bill More like a sinking wall shelf than a floating one
Useless. Despite my mounting the backplate to two studs and using hollow wall anchor for the rest of the holes, this shelf will not hang straight. It slopes downward. It's designed improperly. The shelf has two bars that go into the shelf, but the bars don't go all the way to the front of the shelf. So the shelf slants down. Also, there should be three bars holding the shelf up instead of two. Home Depot should know better. I'm going to modify this one but I'm taking the others I bought back to the store.

Love the shelf! Much stronger brackets than other floating shelves I have.

had to do a little modification because of the lack of support that the product has but we knew this going in. If you can find a way to bolt the thing to the wall then the bracket will have less chance of pulling out of the wall.

This shelf is what the description says it is. ***Make sure you hang it right side up. It tilts slightly upwards to keep things on it when it's right side up. Upside down=things sliding off the shelf onto the floor. The directions explain this clearly.

These arrived with punctures, broken corners, bent and scrunched edges and sides. They are extremely flimsy, very poor material and they bow when you put a potted plant on them.
