Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsRaz Light weight, easy to set up, looks good
I was a bit nervous about ordering this bookcase. I read reviews indicating people had received bookcases that were damaged in shipment, but I really wanted this item to complete my living room so I ordered it and hoped for the best. It arrived safely, there was Styrofoam in the heavy cardboard shipping box that protected the bookcase so mine did not receive any damage.
Very easy to set-up, just remove the packing material, fold the sides away from the back, gently drop the shelves down, and you are done.
I purchased the Home Decorators Collection 37.5 in. W Black Mantel Top to complete the look. I had a little trouble lining up the pegs in the top of the bookcase with the holes in the bottom of the mantel, so for now it's balancing but not securely attached.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Edster Exactly what I needed
The shelving units were easy to set-up. No screws required. One of the units had cracks from shipping but I did not want to deal with returning and waiting for a replacement unit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nancy Nice shelves, but color ???
Easy to assemble, sturdy, nice looking; but honey oak seems more like fruitwood than oak. I like the bar in the back so books will not fall out. Good quality at 1/2 price sale!

Nicely made, pre-assembled, hardwood shelf. Ships flat, good finish, and its stackable if you wanted to double the height!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John This bookshelf is attractive and adequate for my needs.
I had no problems setting it up. The top shelf is handy for parking things I am currently working with, and the two shelves below, in each copy, have enough space with enough overhead for all these books.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by matt Great design, quality alright, excellent value
I move rather frequently, so I like furniture light enough I can transport myself. I really like the folding, stackable design that allows me to quickly disassemble, fold-up and carry the bookshelf on to its new location. This model is ok, I would rather have spent a bit more money for something sturdier and with holes drilled closer to where they should be on the top piece, but this was the best I could find.
The material is decent, actual wood and the walnut color is nice, a medium to somewhat dark tone. Setup was very easy, though shelves tended to fly down and bang before I could stop them.
Shelves seem sturdy enough -- no sagging so far with fairly heavy books.
Having two stacked on top of each other on top of a carpet, it does sway side to side quite a bit -- I pushed it into a corner of the room and put some eye-hooks in the wall and tied some thin rope to secure it better. Will be fine unless there's a monster earthquake, I suppose.
The top piece (sold separately) has poor quality control for the holes... holes were not quite in the right places so it took some serious pushing to get it to go into the pegs. If they had been much further off I would have had to return it or drill new holes.
