Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JCphx Good quality for the money
Very pleased with this bookshelf. One of the criss cross side pieces was loose but you can't tell by looking at it. Was very easy to put together, maybe 30 minutes top. Love how the sides are open, a great piece and just what I needed.

We purchased this bookcase to store my daughters lego collection.. it works for her room and is attractive. However its lightweight and we will need to mount to the wall, however if it did tip over is not heavy. The painting was good but the " finish work " so so.. Its short change for a clean low cost bookcase.

I purchased 3 of these as a low cost solution to house part of a large book collection. I'm just tickled at the quality and stylish design. They really are solid wood and much sturdier and heavier than they look which is good because they are full of books. Yet, not having a back, they will be lighter and easier to move as I am a renter. Also, they are not too high which makes them much more versatile than a big clunky bookcase. And much more affordable! The only thing I would change is to have better illustrations in the assembly instructions. I put the shelves in upside down and had to take all 3 apart and start over once I discovered my mistake.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DebbieQueenOfAll Nice, but beware...
I will say that HDC's customer service is awesome. The first shelf to arrive was damaged in shipping. They shipped a new one immediately with no questions asked. I got the new one and it was more broken than the first (this time through no fault of shipping). This is a very pretty shelf with nice wooden detals on the screw heads. It is very easy to put together. The problem is the little x's on the side of each shelf. They are thin and they break away from the staple/nail that is holding them very easily. I just super glued all the broken ones back in place and they are great now. Just know that initially you might have some problems.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DeSalles I needed something to dress up a long wall in my living room. After a year long hunt, I saw the Montego four shelf bookcases in my Home Decorator catalogue, but was concerned because of the price. It seemed too good to be true. I talked on-line with a very helpful associate that answered all my concerns and decided to order three. When they arrived, it took about an hour to assemble all three. No missing parts, and only one chip on one of the shelves. The packaging was very secure. I am so very pleased with the shelving. They are perfect for displaying my glass collection and I have had numerous compliments. Great Value!

This bookshelf comes with limited assembly instructions, making assembly more difficult than it needed to be. More thorough instructions would have made it easier. The product is definitely not the most sturdy - pieces broke off several times during assembly, and I found a few of the decorative crossbars were not being held in place by the nails (this is how it came from the manufacturer). Have your wood glue and touch up marker ready during assembly! If this product had not been so inexpensive, I would have been extremely disappointed with it. For the price I paid and the location I am using it in, I am fairly pleased with it.

After spending a day shopping for bookshelves for my study on-line and at local furniture stores, I finally decided on two of these which I saw early in the process but feared that they were "too cheap" and would not be sturdy. After the outrageous prices I saw everywhere else, I figured they were worth the risk. Turns out they are plenty sturdy and stylish, too! The finish is nice, but not perfect. There is a bit of roughness on a couple of the shelves, but since they are covered with books, it is no big deal. This is a great practical solution for books in a real working study/office when you might not want ugly metal.
