Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KatM made a library in a nook
pros: the shelves were easy to assemble and were packaged very well to prevent any shipping damage. They seem sturdy. came with a small bracket to attach to a wall for safety
cons: the shelves are adjustable, but adjustments are limited. I put the 2 units side by side and the side wall of one is slightly warped so there is a small gap part-way down the center of the 2. could probably screw them together to eliminate the gap.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ofj74 Very good bookshelf for the price
I would recommend this bookshelf with two notes: first, the backboard is light weight cardboard, much flimsier than I had expected; second, the shelf pegs that hold up the 3 adjustable shelves are very small, plastic pegs. I plan to replace those with larger l-shape metal pegs, especially since I am filling the unit with books.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chiyona Easy to build
Went together easily. Sturdy for the purpose I want to store paint cans, weed killer containers etc. . I had one for about 22 years that got water damaged so this is a replacement. I was glad to see it was still available. Obviously would buy again, ad that is what I did. It can be damaged by water as it is made of press board. I had a water leak & bottom of my original unity got wet, & material started to crumble. Not for outdoors unless very, very sheltered.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonnaP GREAT QUALITY & VALUE
I loved this so much I bought a 2nd one. Very easy to put together but a solid, quality piece. Looks more expensive than it is. Fairly easy to put together--it said two people but I did it by myself. I purchased in white. Would highly recommend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CollegeKid Should've gone to IKEA
Here are some things the instruction manual needs to clear up:
For anyone confused by the first step in the assembly instructions, G(2) is different from G2. G(2) refers to both boards labeled G, while G2 refers to the three boards labeled G2. Also, when you are nailing the back of the bookcase (F board, made of cardboard), make sure the finished side is facing down (towards the front), not up.
The instruction requires two people for assembly. Two is a bit superfluous--one is really all you need.
Another reviewer states that he bought metal dowels to replace the plastic dowels that support the adjustable shelves. While I agree that adjustable shelves are not needed and fixed-shelf bookcases are better, the plastic dowels do the job just fine. If you look at my attached picture, you’ll see that I have loaded plenty of books on the shelves without having the bookcase fall apart.
Ultimately, I’m not too happy with this product. If you want a cheap bookcase, IKEA has a comparable white bookshelf for a third of the price which also carries about 30 pounds per shelf and also has cardboard backing. If you want a more decorative, better quality bookcase, don’t buy South Shore.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Innkeeper Good bookshelf. Good Customer Service.
This very simple bookcase arrived damaged but the customer service at Home Depot and South Shore was very charming and I received a replacement part in reasonable time which was a pleasant surprise.
Then I was compensated me with an Amazon gift card bringing the cost of the bookcase down to nearly nothing. It was easy to assemble. It also looks clean and attractive. Pleased with the purchase!
