Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AppleUkulele Good Price!
I bought this product because it was the most inexpensive one I found. I researched making floating shelves and it wasn't worth my time and cost of materials. I like the shelf...It holds up a small money plant, three battery operated candles and two bibles...I wouldn't put much more weight on it though...It sits on the wall at an angle tilted toward the floor so I fear that any more weight will push it down further. It is well secured to the wall and doesn't appear to be going anywhere. I am happy with the overall product but do not suggest it be used for a book shelf or a trophy shelf or a shelf for anything excessively heavy. A nice addition to our bedroom.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Randomgraph Anchors stink, you'll have to buy new ones
This is a good looking cantilevered shelf once installed. It's strong enough for a couple picture frames or a small plant or two, but don't count on using this type of shelf for a stack of books.
The directions are weak, but I've come to expect that from these Chinese goods. My main problem was that the supplied anchors are utterly useless. These are butterfly-style wall toggles, but they crack and strip out the instant a screw is installed. I had to tear out all 5 and start over with new anchors. Then the shelf anchors to a steel frame with two wood screws. The holes in the frame were not drilled straight so this caused additional problems.
As long as you've factored in a package of wall anchors into the price of this shelf, go right ahead.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by g8rfan Poor construction.
The mounting hardware had sufficient holes to mount it securely to the wall, but the way that the shelf affixed to the mounting hardware results in an insecure mount. The shelf is wobbly on the mounting hardware, not the wall. I tried installing the mount right-side up and up-side down - the instructions did not specify a proper way - and both ways resulted in a sagging and insecure shelf.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mason2006 Looks great, install wasn't super easy
I like the simplicity of the shelves and the floating look. However, the shelves were more difficult to install that it would seem. Trying to level, drill, and ensure the shelves are flush with the wall really took 2 people. I like the finished product, but for the cheapness of the materials, they shouldn't be $27 for each shelf.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kansasdottie Arrived damaged
One shelf out of 2 ordered arrived damaged after waiting over a week for them to arrive. This wasn't damage from shipping. It was damage from when they were packaged. Shipped back to Home Depot the next day. These looked exactly like a set I bought at Lowe's with different packaging. Ended up returning those as well. They didn't have pre-drilled screw holes where they were supposed to be!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CL2410 Doesn't sit level
Although the shelf mounts easily, there is too much play where the metal shafts fit into the holes of the shelf. This causes the shelf to fit loosely and tilt about 1/4" slanted despite tightening the bottom stop screws. When you look at the shelf from the side the slanted tilt is noticeable and should be concerned about things sliding off.
I even had to buy L shelf brackets (EB-0036-WT) also from Home Depot to keep the shelf at a right angle, so now I'm satisfied with it despite having to spend a little extra money for the L bracket.
Also, I found a very similar shelf at Orchards, where the design was nearly identical even to the mounting screws. The difference is the play between the metal shafts and the shelf was tight, so there was no significant slant. Also Orchards shelf model is 2" thick compared to Home Depot's 1-1/4", so that help maintain a better right angle fit with the wall. Orchard's model was $20 compared to Home Depot's $15, but I rather spend a little extra for a better fit.
