Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kp109 Overpriced for the quality. Go with ClosetMaid
Fairly easy to assemble. That's the only "pro". I'd recommend the ClosetMaid system over this. Same thing, except no "celebrity" name attached to it. This system is very much overpriced for the quality.
Could not get or pick up in store. Had to deliver. Delivery was quicker than anticipated, except every single piece was damaged. Nothing major so that we could not install it, but once installed, you could see marks and dents everywhere. Will try to cover it up somehow since it's already installed. Didn't have this issue with our ClosetMaid closet.
Also, the Martha closet design program was great to use before hand to plan out the closet. If you chose this product, it's worth tinkering around in to customize your closet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alexis Nice Closet System
We purchased this for my daughter's nursery. The instructions that came with the materials was not the best so it took me some time to figure out where to start my install height. The hardest part is installing the back bar which supports the whole structure to make sure you have it into studs and that it is leveled. Once we got that up putting together the parts of the closet was super easy. Took us about 2 hours all together from start to finish and I love the results. its so organized and stylish with lots of hanging space. You should take account for loss of some hanging space with the width of each panel so expect to loose about maybe an inch or two from the sides. The center shelving was larger then expected but it works out nicely. I would definitely purchase another one of these in the future. I few pieces were nicked in the corners but little white touch up pain will hide that, which is expected whenever something is sitting in a box and shipped around the country.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Les would not buy again
When I went to Home Depot to buy this it said white is available online only... I designed and the way the closet picture looks is not what you get. The top shelf does not fit over, but down about an inch so you do not have a solid smooth shelf at the top. It would be much more useful if the two short sides came all the way down like the middle section. This product is just like all the other's out there, particle board with a paper laminate. I was disappointed that Martha Stewart would put her name on this but since I had already torn down the previous closet, a double door and designed an ALCOVE CLOSET I had to have it installed for a surprise for my daughter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MelissaInOH Easy to work with, GREAT customer service
I am reviewing this part of the collection but this review is for the entire Martha Stewart Closet line, I actually designed a custom solution for a small bedroom in my house that I am converting into a walk-in closet. I was very nervous to be doing this on my own but so far, it's been going smoothly. Directions are solid. Materials are sturdy, the drawers are really well made (and pretty easy to assemble.) The two 72" panels in the deluxe set were cracked but I blame UPS, not the packaging. I called customer service, they asked for my order number, if the box was damaged and then told me my replacement parts were on their way. AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIYMark Competitive priced but don't expect longevity
I installed a "custom design" system created with the online martha stewart closet website design tool. It included this starter kit as well as a number of other off the shelf kits to create the design. Here is a summary of the pros-cons
-The design tool is reasonably flexible and allows you to adjust for the closet unique dimensions
-The hanging system using a metal french cleat makes the unit versatile and assure it hangs plumb regardless of the straightness of the wall. Also is very strong
-The kits are well packaged and all came undamaged (there were 23 boxes for a walk-in closet)
-The quality of the melamine wood is very low. In my cabinet making business I have seen there is a wide range of quality of this simple material. Low quality the foil face (surface) chips easily and is thin.
-There is a great deal of waste with the "kit" approach. The design tool decides what you need by combining kits. So if you need a single long upright panel you pay for a whole starter kit that includes multiple long panel, shelves, and fasteners.
-There is a significant amount of cutting and drilling. Custom is a misnomer. The design tool combines standard kits (12, 24, 35") to fill your dimensions. You have to cut the pieces to size to fit your application. This can be significant.
-Drawer boxes are weak. I found the drawer kits to be especially low quality. Drawers are typically high use and demand strength of materials to maintain shape (squareness) and performance. This system all components are low grade MDF or Particle board. The slides are pretty good but I expect the drawers will fail after a few years of use.
Overall, this method of combining standard kits is a great way for the consumer to get a decent looking closet organizer at what seems like a competitive price. Still, as a cabinet maker, I'm surprised how low quality the materials are for the price. The system my client had me install was over $1000 and frankly there was about $200 of materials if you purchased them as sheet goods and made them yourself. I realize building it from scratch is way beyond most consumers, but that margin is surprising. I expect this system to last just a few years (10 or less), where a cabinet maker quality system (from plywood with traditional joinery) would last for decades.
