Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dilo Great purchase!Happy with my decision!
Looks very expensive. The material is good. You just need to be careful when handling the individual wooden board pieces so you don't scratch them or bump them. Holds well. Money well spent. Very happy with my purchase...no complaints. Does not look cheap. Nice sheen to the wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MeCzech very nice piece
As some reviewer said before, it’s hard to get nice large bookcase with glass for this price. However, here is my experience: The furniture arrived without any shipping damages; glass in door was very well protected against breaking. In the hardware package two knobs were missing. Customer service immediately ordered for me the new ones. This piece of furniture was not made as well as the Oxford storage cabinet I purchased. The bottom of the cabinet was made tiny bit wider, then the bottom front bar so that on each side on front you could see connecting dowels (see the picture). I’ll try to fill it up with the brown caulk. Bottom of the cabinet (inside) has few inches stripe of slightly buckled surface, hopefully it will go after putting the weight on. For door attachment is necessary to have at least one additional person: the door is very heavy. Because of significant weight of door, the bookcase should be anchored to the wall, because when doors are left open (while the bookcase is empty) all cabinet starts overturning towards to the front. Anchoring hardware is included, but it’s for close attachment to the wall only. Behind my bookcase are hot water baseboards, so I need few inches long attachment rod, that is not included (will visit hardware store). Although working with water level, we had difficulties to attach the back panel. The quality of material is not the greatest: No matter how carefully I did assembly, suddenly I found tiny chips. I fixed them with touch-up marker, so it’s practically invisible. It’s just little annoying. Now, when finally assembled the bookcase looks very good. The color is well blending with other furniture in the room. I cannot wait to bring my books stored in boxes above the garage and put them in

I had purchased the filing cabinet to start with, and I was satisfied with it, so I purchased the bookcase. Despite some other comments about the case being difficult to assemble, it took me a bit more than one hour and a half by myself. I am sure with two people, the time would have been cut down by more than half.

buy in person once you put together and tear up the boxes you are stuck!

I'm very disappointed in this product. I've ordered plenty of stuff from HDC before, but this one is the worst. Upon first opening the box, the smell was so bad my eyes watered. I opened everything and let it air out for a whole week before the smell was bearable enough to assemble. Once I did, it was so flimsy that the whole thing rocks when I open a door. I tried adjusting the magnet location to reduce its hold, to no avail. From far away it looks nice enough given the price point, but not a good purchase at all. And the inside STILL smells when I open it.

Superb glass door bookshelves for our home office. Rich ebony finish. Smooth satin hardware. Easy to adjust interior shelves. Magnet closures on top & bottom of each door. Slight rattle when opening doors due to glass on metal clips but I will place thin felt buffer for stability. Capacity, structure and style exceeded our expectations. Best price for this size enclosed shelving unit found after a three month search. Thank you.

I purchased this piece for our office. Assembly was overall easy; however, once assembled, was very rickety. So much so, that I felt it to be a safety issue. Had someone bumped into it, it would have likely fallen over or apart. I called customer service, explained the situation. Customer service was great. They offered a discount if I wanted to keep it or offered to send call tags for it to be returned. I opted to to have it returned. I am still waiting for call tags after 1 week. Overall, this piece was attractive, but poor quality. I would not recommend it.

I have bought a number of pieces in the Oxford collection and they are all great.
The onlyreason I haven't given 4 or 5 stars for workmanship is the locking cams. They are made of a cheap material and invariably one or two snap during assembly.
I have bought a boxful of metal replacements at my local hardware and use these.
