Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SimplyFine Solid and beautiful
I was amazed first at how well packaged this came. This is a solid construction product, no particle board or cardboard back. All Wood. It went together easily and the instructions are simple to follow. Package says "Takes two people to assemble" I did it alone. I was so impressed at the quality of the bookcase that I ordered another one. Fantastic item at a great price. When you assemble it, follow the directions to the tee. I'm not new to assembly required, but this truly was easy, all you need is a screwdriver. Put mine together in about 30 minutes. Only bad thing I have to say is, it took me 30 minutes to remove a warning sticker on the inside of the case. I want to display items in it with back lighting, the sticker is easily removed with several applications of GooGone. :D Love this bookcase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bonkers Pleased, overall
The cabinet is rich looking. I was going to return it because of the size (pay attention to the inner dimensions if you're using it for dishware) but I liked the looks of it too much.
It's not real user friendly to assemble (my husband had to drill holes and get a bit creative) but the end result is worth it, especially considering the price Home Depot is selling it for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by April Love it!
We love this cabinet. It was much better quality than expected for the price and the color is very nice. We had almost no trouble putting this piece together. Nothing warped, missing, or broken. The only issue we had was with the backing. The boards were just slightly too narrow, but it was easy enough to resolve. We left a small gap between the two backing boards behind the center column to hide the gap. This made the holes for the screws too big, so we put the screws in the small gap slightly above the holes so they could catch the boards and hold them in place. Overall it came together very easily and nicely. Looks great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYTrierCat Would purchase more from this line
I bought this RTA unit on sale for $179.00 In October 2012. It is a great value for that price! I would not pay regular price of $349.99.
I am not awesome at RTA units as I am a step-by-step, need a detailed manual for these assemblies. Because the instructions are not detailed enough (for me), I had to disassemble the unit a few times to get it right. The shelves need to hit flush against the back panel, not the doors. I had never dealt with camlocks before so those were a chore (for me).
Getting one door flush and level with the other with the magnet catching the doors was difficult for me also. Still not perfect which has me annoyed.
This unit is spacious, functional and attractive especially for under $200.00. I would purchase another cabinet in a lighter colour for the spare room if I see it on sale again.
Everyone comments on what a nice piece it is in my front room. With the money I saved I will buy me/marry me an expert RTAer to help next time :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JMort This product is perfect for storage.
This was the perfect storage for my husband's coin books. It was delivered on time and in good condition.

I bought this piece for a very specific space. I needed it to fit snuggly in my entryway. It does! The piece is sturdy and the tabacco brown finish is lovely.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by John99 meh
I waited a year for this item to be restocked at my local store and now I'm kicking myself. I really liked the look and it matched my decor perfectly but is of average (at best) quality for the price.
I'm lucky that I am picky and had planned to use a quality adhesive along with the hardware. The hardware is JUNK, I was careful and still broke two camlocks while tightening.
The doors are both slightly warped and the magnetic clasps are not strong enough to hold the doors....one keeps swinging open and I will have to install something else to keep it shut.
Not worth $200 in my opinion.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nohandymanbut Excellent Value
I just bought and assembled this unit and as far as I am concerned it is great value for the price. Solid wood and no particle board or pressed board backer. The only reason I give it 4 out of 5 is that the instructions are not nearly detailed enough. I had a huge problem with the doors and the shelves until I realized that I had the top on backwards. On reflection the floor model in the store was put together incorrectly with the shelves against the doors rather than the back of the cabinet.
It looks great in our TV room!
