I would recommend this product if you buy it IN the store, and take it home yourself. There was damage on mine, and I am going to assume that they wouldn't have loaded them in that condition.

The predrilled holes were not the same diameter or depth. I had to re-drill most of the holes in order to use the product.

poor poor manufacturing controls
Poor manufacturing and quality control. Pre-drilled holes are not in alignment. Each board has two rows of holes--front and back. Front holes and back holes are not in the same plane. So shelves will not lie flat. HD should find another supplier.

    Completely USLESS product for making a closet, as it is only drilled on ONE side... so despite the photos and description, you can't use this in the middle of a closet, you can only use it on the ends... Terrible disappointment

      holes are staggered
      The front and back holes are not aligned. I am not referring to the fact that the back holes are inset from the edge farther than the front holes are. One set of holes is higher than the other by ~1/8inch (confirmed with an L-square). Thus, a shelf will not sit on the holes level. If you flip the board to use on the other side, you won't even create a slanted shelf; it will create a parallelogram stagger. The front two holes won't be level with each other. I can't see how this is by design. I cut one board before I discovered the defect. I am returning the other boards. I can't find the company's contact info to research this further.

          Perfect except
          Used these to redesign my closet. One person complained (on here) the holes were not aligned properly, this should only be if you've flipped the board. One side the holes are (guess-ta-mate) 1.5" from the edge and 2" from the other edge - this means you can't just flip the board and expect the holes to be the same (though it shouldn't affect putting shelves on it) My complaints if you can call them that are simple, having to drill through 150 holes so I could attach shelves to both sides and the holes not being the same distance from the sides - both minor and workable.

            Stickers don't come off
            This would be a great product except for the fact that the company puts huge (14"x6 1/2") stickers on each board that are nearly impossible to remove without damaging the finish. Time is money in my business and I don't have time to remove pointless stickers.

              Think before you cut this board
              If you only need a portion of the board think about two things. 1. There is only one white side (it would have made it so much easier if they put the white siding on both sides). 2. The peg holes have to line up. So you'll need to consider cutting from both ends of the board to line up the peg holes and show the white siding. This advice would have saved a bunch of time and money.

                Useful and Easy to Use
                Built a shelf unit between 2 cabinets for laundry room. Overbuilt using biscuits and glue, but holds 2 warehouse store (huge) detergent bottles and lots of other heavy items easily (put detergent on its side to make it easy to dispense). Big improvement, not a lot of work. If you have the cut edges showing, buy some matching edge tape and borrow a clothes iron to seal it on the unsightly edge. Takes a few minutes, and looks very professional. The label is no problem! Easiest way to remove it is by warming it with a heat gun or hair dryer to soften the adhesive, and gently peel it off. Or use Goo-Gone remover or equivalent and let it soak in to break the adhesive bond. you can lightly score the glossy surface of the label (DON'T cut through and scratch the work!) Give it time to wet through the label. You can also use Mineral Spirits from the paint department, or lighter fluid. These are great for removing gummy residue, also. Alcohol doesn't work; all it does is make you write angry reviews.

                  Built a pantry, this worked great
                  I built a pantry using this drilled board for uprights, so that the shelving would be adjustable. I had to drill out the holes to use the shelf pins on the backside of the middle upright board, but if you drill a smaller starter hole and then progress bit by bit to the correct size drill bit, you can get as clean a hole in the melamine as the original.(I'm too frugal to put two boards back to back.) The labels on the board, while Very Big, came off very easily, in one piece, with little gummy residue.

                    non-removable label!
                    Could they make the GD label any larger, more difficult to remove, and a bigger pain? I spent three minutes cutting the boards to size and twenty minutes removing the labels with my chisel...then I spent ten minutes tracking down the rubbing alcohol I needed to remove the leftover glue on the boards...then another few minutes wiping off the residue. Just the way I like a project to go!

                      Criticism of the online display
                      I am curious as to why Home Depot would show wood colored shelving that is only sold in white. It would make sense that if the product is only available in white to display it in white.

                      Easy to build and organize a closet
                      I did a complete walk in closet using this product, it took a day and a half, although some of that was going back for more boards. Only complaint us that the boards are only drilled on one side, makes it necessary to put boards back to back. Having done that, the whole project Cost a little over $200. For this I was able to treble the hanging space and build 58 feet if shelf space.
