Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jo123 Freeport 5-Shelf Narrow Bookcase in Pure White
What I purchased should not be called Bookcases.
I bought 2 of these and 2 of the wider cases. The sizes fit beautifully on either side of the window, extending to the corners of the room, the size was why I bought them, assembled and in place they look like built-ins.
However, they are not suitable for someone who wants to shelve, art books, interior design books and/or legal books. If a person wanted to house DVDs, CDs, accessories, and some books carefully placed as not to sag the shelves, then these will do they just fine. These are NOT for anyone who has a serious book collection.
I have had particleboard bookcases in the past and never had a problem w/sagging shelves. I do not believe these are particleboard, but a paper composition .
I would have gladly paid twice the amount, for real BOOKCASES that could hold my books.
I now have to get a handy man to look at the cases to see if the situation can be rectified, if not I will have to have proper built-ins installed.
They look great but, for me they fell short of expectations and usefulness.

It is very sturdy, easy to put together, and looks good in my contemporary livingroom. I have rambunctious grandchildren, so we secured the bookcases to each other and to the wall.

Easy to assemble directions - was disappointed in quality of backing for the bookcase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYDebbie It is what it is
The shelving unit is as described. It is particle board, white, and true to size and weight. The directions for all of these are barely adequate. We glued all the pieces and used the enclosed hardware. We are using this as a pantry in the bathroom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by choirmom What I needed.
I ordered this cabinet to fill a corner in a very small kitchen. It fit perfectly and increased my storage for items that I don't mind displaying. It went together in no time, but I needed help because of the weight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grace Exactly what I expected
For what it is, an inexpensive bookcase, it is good. Exactly as described. I would have preferred the adjustable shelves not to have gaps in the sides, but that can only be expected when you have a higher end product. It serves the purpose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beginner This was what I needed to complete my storage area.
I needed additional shelving but only had a small area, after reviewing other stores for size and price this was by far the best price. Fit my needs and was exactly the correct measurements. I'm thinking about buying another for my closet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by didi Good clean looking product
Good product for the price. Easy to install. It looks clean and holds a lot of books. I did secure it to the wall to make sure it doesn't tip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SeR90 Good bookshelf
I purchased two of these bookshelves to put on either side of my bed instead of using a headboard. They are sturdy in that they can hold a decent amount of weight per shelf and were easy to assemble.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Desertgal Perfect for my needs
These shelves are exactly what I wanted. They are pressed wood, which is why the price is so reasonable, and for my uses they're fine. I gave them a 4 star, instead of 5 star rating, because of the included shelf holders. They were tiny and plastic. IF you are going to use these shelves for pretty nicknacks, then they are fine, but after reading the other reviews, and knowing I was going to load the shelves with books, I bought the 5mm metal shelf holders. The pre-drilled holes were not quite large enough, so it took a bit of banging with the hammer to get the metal ones in, but they're in. And the shelves are populated with books.
A friend helped me put the units together (I bought 2) and they went together easy peasy. The directions were perfect, there were extra foo-dads (a non-technical term) instead of too few, and when all together they were square. For what more could I ask? While one could probably put them together, it was a snap having the extra pair of hands.
It took longer to get the books on the shelves than to build the units ;-)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sotowannabe Pretty good value, sturdy, easy to put together.
It serves the purpose for which intended and is a pretty good value over all. It was fairly easy to put together and seems to be well made.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JLee Does the job
This narrow bookshelf was the perfect size for storing my shoe boxes in. The only thing I disliked about this was that it did not come with all the nails. However, they supplied enough nails (roughly 10 or so) to hang the back board.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patty I highly recommend them.
This product was very easy to put together. All the pieces fit together nicely with no problem. It took about one hour on each bookcase.
