Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beach1 Happy with the floating shelf
Not the bright white I wanted works for my purposes. Quality is good and it was easy to install.

I ordered three shelves. One of three arrived in good condition, the other two were dented, unable to hang, so I returned them and ordered two more. Hopefully they will arrive in good condition.
The one shelf I hung while awaiting the other two replacements is a good quality shelf and looks good as hung above a coffee cart in our kitchen. Think I will like the overall look and functionality if the other two shelves work out. Shelf seems solid once hung and easy to hang. Good quality, but not good if cannot get shelves in good condition to hang. Price was competitive compared to same shelf offered elsewhere so others are marking up immensely.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIYQueen Okay but not great
The workmanship is not so great. The veneer on the top of the shelf was bulging slightly from either nails or staples beneath it. The hardware was jammed into the tubes and impossible to extract. We did manage to get one screw out and realized it was cheap and useless. Luckily, we had good screws on hand and so was able to install it without having to run to the store again.
It was installed under a half round window, high on the wall, and would not carry a great deal of weight...basically just some glass figurines. I'm not sure I would trust anything really heavy to the shelf as I think the hanging tubes (that "float" the shelf) are not particularly strong. I have a different floating shelf that I bought some years ago, and the difference between the tubes is very noticeable. The older shelf's tubes are extremely rigid and large. This newer shelf's tubes are thinner and smaller. Because I installed it above eye level, the veneer bulging up slightly over the hardware was a non-issue. However, if installed at eye level, this would be very noticeable.
I would recommend this shelf, but only with the following caveats: do not expect it to be high quality, do not expect it to be a "honey" oak (it was MUCH lighter), and do not expect it to handle anything really heavy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TediMom Have it shipped to nearest Home Depot for pick up
The first shipment we had sent to our home. Two of the three shelves were chipped and ends broken. We called and they blamed it on UPS....but the packaging was very poor, very little bubble wrap and very thin cardboard box to be shipping shelves in. We reordered and had the two sent to our local store and we picked them up there and inspected them right there before we took them. The design is good the workmanship is less than average. The stain was a very light oak and we had to put additional stain on them to match the medium regular oak stain that we have on an existing mantel and woodwork.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer decorative plate shelf
I looked everywhere for a shelf with a plate groove to display antique China plates. I finally found them on home depot. com! They came well wrapped and in good condition. Though the hanging screws were a little difficult to access, the shelves were easy to hang and look lovely. The manufacturer news to think about repackaging them. I wish the shelves were available in 30". That size would have been perfect!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman Shelf doesn't lock in place
The mounting bracket is flimsy and you're not likely to find studs to line up with its holes. As a consequence, the mounting rods sag slightly, and the shelf sags. In addition, the shelf doesn't lock down on the rods. Finally, I had ordered two units; one of them arrived with a crushed corner, even though the shipping box was intact, and there was no way to see the damage, without completely removing the cellophane wrapper and the corner "guards". Needless to say, that one was returned for a refund.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by brainfade Nice looking sturdy shelves
These are nice looking, very sturdy shelves. However, we recommend them with reservations because the included screws are inside the mounting hardware and can't easily be removed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by iillini24 I returned them
I did not like the color/lack of shine to the shelves and the fact that they were so modern. The hardware was metal so it would be sturdy for larger projects. I instead I bought the 8 in. D x 24 in. L x 1-3/4 in. H White Floating Shelf for $20 at the same time and its hardware was wood.
Though I did not want the shelves, Home Depot had no issues with me returning them to the store. The shelves came in great shape and no issues through shipping. They were too modern looking for my pre-war condo in Chicago with my white trim.
