Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy Very disappointed
Item arrived damaged with cracks along the entire seam on 4 sides. Quality of the wood not as expected. Overpriced. Would have have better luck with an Ikea or Target bookcase.

I needed a piece this size and once together, this is solid and serviceable. Does involve more serious construction skills: directions are easy to follow.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Cheap Bookcase with Low-Quality Construction
This item is a very low-quality bookcase, but I will admit the price is right.
The bookcase is made from very cheap wood with a cheap finish; there were several hairline cracks and blemishes, including bubbles and runs in the finish. A few of the screw holes were stripped, luckily none of them were needed for structural integrity. All hardware seemed to be made of light, low grade cast aluminum, which made me a little uneasy about stacking a lot of books on the shelves.
That being said, the piece is very fairly priced. I would consider this bookcase good for light to medium use in a low traffic area. Don't make it the focal point of a room and it definitely won't stand up to daily use with children.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shan Nice bookcase, bad packaging.
I love the size and color but, the front left side was very beat up in shipping. If we noticed before we put it together we would have taken it back. Coming all the way from China I guess we should have expected it. I love being able to pick up items and store and the employes were great. Just the shipping packaging was bad. If the packaging with better them maybe I would recommend this. There are pictures and there are gauges all the way down only showed 2.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MAXWELL3 Beautiful Cabinet
I was not sure if the cabinet would have particle board pieces and was very pleased it did not. All the pieces including the shelves were wood. It is a heavy, sturdy piece and I bought them for either side of my sister's fireplace and they look amazing. The packaging was great because the boxes were destroyed by the time I picked them up at Home Depot and expected broken pieces. Everything was fine and the directions were very easy to follow.

We needed a slim bookcase for my daughter's nursery and this is one of the few I could find. It's easy to assemble, and sturdy. My one gripe is that the back board is a slightly different color to the rest of the piece but once the bookcase is dressed with books, toys etc. this is hardly noticeable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by maxsmom1127 Wouldn't recommend
The bookshelf does not look as high quality as the Oxford desk - there is some exposed hardware, and its just not as sturdy looking. I have had it for a couple weeks, and it still is giving off an awful chemical smell. Probably would not purchase again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Molenzo Too Expensive for the Quality
Looking for a bookcase to stand beside my two white book towers, I thought I had found the perfect one. I noticed some paint flaking in the corners, but thought it probably wouldn't be too noticeable so I proceeded to assemble it. Half way through this task, I realized that it wasn't just flaking paint; the side trim was actually coming unglued! Also, three of the cam bolts broke during assembly. For $200, this should not happen.
Due it its weight, it was a very ungainly item to repackage and return to the store.
