I would rate it higher but I cannot get the wood plugs to go into the holes to cover the screws

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 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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shirlhock Sturdy Book Case and No Assembly Required
These bookcases are sturdy and come assembled. They look smart and fold up easily for moving. They aren't cheaply constructed, nor are they made of cheap materials. I have four of these now, which were purchased over more than the past decade. They have not deteriorated in quality. Home Depot has an excellent price on these units. You can order them online and have home delivery. Great for any room in the house. They come in a variety of colors. They sit solid.

Very attractive blends into existent room furniture. Easy assembly no tools required. Would highly recommend to others of all ages. Home Depot you did it again and more affordable than the leading comparative home improvement retailer.

These shelves are perfect for books and plants. The unit is very well made and could not have been easier to assemble.
