Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kflaming Installation is difficult but not impossible. Mine ended up looking pretty good.
I read all the negative comments but purchased 5 of these anyway. There are certainly some things to be aware of when installing these. One of the 5 packages was clearly different than the others and had a different set of instructions with no paper template. I don’t know if it was older or newer but I would recommend dispensing with the paper template anyway as there is variance between the template and back plates and between the back plates themselves. Take care to note the horizontal variance of the pre-drilled holes or your shelves won’t line up and down the stack. Both sets of instructions are self conflicting on the size of pilot hole to drill for the plastic anchors. I found 5/16” was correct for those supplied with mine. I would not drill the 5/16” pilot holes for studs as the instructions suggest. Between my 5 kits there were 2 different types of back plates, 2 different types of large screws, and 2 different types of small screws with no rhyme or reason to how they were distributed among the 5 kits. It wasn’t old versus new or anything like that. MAKE SURE THE ARROW POINTS UP! OR THE SHELVES WILL SLOPE DOWN. I used the two-wing plastic brackets because I was able to hit some studs. If you can’t hit any studs, get some metal anchors. The large screws are worthless! After breaking off two of them in studs and my having to reposition the shelves, I got different screws. All but one of the back plates was bent. I had better luck flattening out the back plates first; otherwise, it’s difficult to slide the shelves over the tubes on back plate. The design is poor. The back plate could be 1” (vs ¾”) tall for better stability. I can’t figure out why the back plate is pre-drilled for 16.5”, 19.5”, 21 3/8” and 22.5” stud spacing. I have never seen anything other than 16” wall stud spacing. The 4 pre-drilled holes that are slotted only allow 3/8” horizontal movement so be prepared to drill into the back plate if you want to catch two studs. Good luck!

You get what you pay for with this. The metal backing bracket wasn't even flat or level. And the holes drilled in the rods to attach shelf were off center also.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dodi66 NIce for Photos
I purchased these floating wall shelves to display photos from trips we have taken. The shelves are very narrow, which is what I wanted, and was having trouble finding. They work really well for displaying the photos... I am able to change and move photos around without leaving nail holes in wall!! May need to get some more for other areas of the house! I do wish they came in a lighter brown...the chocolate is very dark and I would have preferred a bit lighter. Not too difficult to hang, just need a level and some patience!!!

The shelving seems a little cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TheAtomicPunk These things SUCK!
I bought these to show off my collection of nerd items for my man cave. The shelves sag. BADLY!. I started to put some of my collectibles on the shelves and then the shelves started to sag from the wall. After a while some of my collectibles fell of and broke. Now i have to replace them at a cost to me and replace these horribly made shelves.
DO NOT BUY THESE.

Easy to install. Clean look. Took a lot longer to get then I would've like due to inaccurate stock quantities shown online.

We bought this to display a vintage Lionel train. It worked out good because the wheels of the train fit over the little rail on the front. If the shelf had been wider we wouldn't have been able to show the wheels. The color had a little red tint to it. I tried to darken it with some Old English scratch cover but the finish wouldn't take it; but it is close enough to the color I wanted. There were two extra holes in the back like someone drilled the holes in the wrong spot. It all worked out. It's cute and I look seeing the train wheels.
